To clarify, our vaccine doesn't contain any virus. So no we wouldn't we be infecting anyone who is dosed with our vaccine. The vaccine formulation only contains the epitopes that HIV controllers preferentially target on the virus. The end result of this approach needs to be tested. Its possible that if we recruit enough killer T cells with improved targeting to wipe out the infection early then perhaps we can knock out the virus. Clinical testing is required to see exactly what will happen.

There are many more questions that are not being answered and that will have to be taken one step at a time. And the other question, is what would be the application to other diseases and conditions that are now immune to antibiotics. And ultimately what will be the biological response to such.
