Can someone explain this in clear English that the rest of us can understand?
HIV is not just a Virus, it is a retroVirus which invades the DNA of the host cell. In the case of Human Immune-Deficeincy retroVirus the Host Cell is CD4+ T cell. CD4+ T cells are needed to Help fight other viruses and infections etc. HIV not only kills CD4+ T cells, the Virus replicates in the cells and is released.CD8+ T cells also fight viruses but become exhausted from the battle and lose their ability to breed.TaTooos ( Telomerase Activators) are like Viagra for those CD8+ Killer T Cells.Tatoos ALSO seem to selectively kill the 'HIV infected CD4+ T cells.The following link may or may not have anything to do with Geron NOW, but in the future I would like to see gd_Tex stomp on some HIV while TaTooed Killers chase the ones that run ;O)http://mednews.stanford.edu/releases/2002/february/gdtex.html
