Norton et al. (2019) report on a gene therapy-based therapeutic dendritic cell vaccine for HIV. The vaccine stimulated a strong HIV-specific CD8 T cell response that suppressed virus load by 100-fold in a humanized mouse model. The approach uses lentiviral vectors that activate dendritic cells and block checkpoint activation.
