Scientists attempt to cure HIV using CRISPR, with varying results
https://www.nejm.org/doi/10.1056/NEJMoa1817426

In 2017, Deng and team engineered human stem cells that mimicked a rare form of natural immunity to HIV and administered them to an HIV-infected man who already needed a blood stem cell transplant to treat cancer.

The man was treated with chemicals and radiation to wipe out his bone marrow and make room for the millions of engineered stem cells that were then transplanted. These new donated stem cells would replace the patient’s unhealthy ones in an attempt to cure his cancer.

the donated stem cells had been edited with CRISPR to cripple the CCR5 gene, which is needed for HIV to enter immune cells.

Now, more than two years later, the patient is still in good health and his cancer is in full remission.

After the transplant, only 5 to 8% of the bone marrow cells carried a copy of the CCR5 edit, meaning they were significantly outnumbered by cells that are susceptible to infection.

“They need to approach 90% or more, I think, to actually have a chance of curing HIV,” says June.
