Training the immune system to fight HIV

This news story writes about a new strategy for combating HIV. The summary of the method is this. A sample of HIV is removed from the patient’s body. Outside the body, the HIV proteins are concentrated, which are then used to train the “killer T-cells”. These trained killer cells are now injected inside the body again to fight the HIV.

Instead of using anti-HIV drugs, the trained immune system does the job of fighting HIV. It reduces the chances of side-effects and is more effective too. Now, that is what I call *good* and *simple* biohacking ๐Ÿ™‚
