But I guess when you think about it, as a solution it makes sense. HIV is a virus that's very good at attacking cells and can defend itself against your immune system. If you can have it attacking the right cells then it's perfect.
I wonder if this type of science was inspiration for the Bourne Legacy, I watched that film the other day, basically people had genetic enhancements capable of being delivered into the body via a virus. I guess it is kinda mind blowing to see when something you might see in science fiction having some kind of basis in reality.
The idea of using AIDs to cure cancer seems bizarre, but I hope it is successful. I wonder if the same method could be used to kill a whole plethora of viruses? Including the kind of HIV that can kill you.
