virus to fight hiv virus?

“The treatment is made of a gutted HIV virus. The harmful parts of the virus are removed, and in their place the researchers have inserted a DNA cargo that inhibits HIV's ability to kill immune cells. It latches onto the natural HIV and spreads along with it, even from person to person.

“If this process sounds familiar, it's because it is essentially gene therapy, albeit a transmissible gene therapy.”
