We are genetically modifying CMV-specific T cells with anti-HIV CAR vectors to redirect the immune response towards HIV-infected cells. These bicistronic vectors express the CD4 extracellular domains to bind HIV Env, intracellular T cell signaling domains to activate cytotoxicity, and a membrane associated fusion inhibitor to protect the CAR Tc from infection. To increase the targeting of latent reservoirs, we are using the novel reactivation potential of adipose-derived mesenchymal stem cells.
