While not the first, this new study shows that dendritic cells loaded ex vivo with chemically inactvie autologous virus is able to improve the immune status in chronically infected HIV-positive individuals by expanding the antigenic and functional breadth of the HIV-specific T-cell response.  It clearly demonstrates the importance of dendritic cell vaccination on the road towards a functional cure.

That is just great to see that this attempt of a therapeutic vaccination functions in vivo to some degree - although some may say this not that new news.
