I don't know if this is the right group to post this in, but I had a
thought about combatting HIV.  I'm not a professional, so maybe one
could answer my question.  Has anyone seriously tried to bolster the
strength of our T-cells, by mutation or something, to let it be able
to fight of HIV like it does many other viruses instead of concentrating
on directly attacking the virus?  It seems to me that since the T-cell
already can fight off diseases and viruses, either a new version of it
or a different manmade cell based on it could be able to beat HIV itself
This just occurred to me this morning and I was curious if anyone had
tried this line of attack or if it plain didn't make sense.  thanks for
any input anyone has.
