I am now going to call this a Functional Treatment for HIV and only for HIV. My reasoning is that for all patients, the immune system will be boosted and CD4 counts will be higher with treatment. I do believe that some patients will also see an undetectable viral load while some patients will have detectable loads, but there new CD4 cells will dominate the disease and keep the person at desirable levels and healthy. I also believe the treatment will be used with or without current medicine to obtain the best results. Some patients may require 1 treatment while others will need more.
I also believe that the treatment will act as a real CURE for other diseases. That is where Shire values SGMO. Simply put, some diseases are easier to treat with the SGMO platform.
Again, the most important part of this message is the higher CD4 counts and a healthier immune system. It is the key to both Treatment and Cure for any disease
As far as todays sell off is concerned. It was a setup from potential hyped CROI announcement, that did not come through and the word Cure being tossed around too easily.
IMO, the IV board is what the Yahoo MB board use to be like, hype, pump, dump, bs and some posters who think they know everything…..(hint, ZF).
I told this board information about SGMO. The IV board is hyping SGMO HIV treatment as a cure but SGMO stated it could be a functional Cure. However, I don't like the word “Cure” being used with the treatment because it misleads many who don't understand the treatment to believe it is only a “Cure” or one time process.
