Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection is a major global public health issue affecting the LGBTQ+ community. The only treatment available in mainstream medicine is antiretroviral therapy. This treatment is not curative, it needs to be used lifelong, highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for the treatment of HIV has been associated with many complications and compliance issues in patients, which call for a more practical and more effective possible alternative. However in recent years, stem cell therapy has shown promising results in HIV management, and it can have a major impact on the future of HIV treatment and prevention.
Stem cell-based therapies currently hold great promise to treat a large number of diseases including cardiovascular diseases; neurodegenerative diseases ; muscular degenerative disorders; haematopoietic and immune system disorders; liver injuries; metabolic disorders ; cancers and much more diseases in the human body that might take advantage of stem cell therapy; During the past decade, research in the field of stem cells has expanded significantly and many trials have been carried out to exploit the ability of MSCs to treat diseases including musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, neurodegenerative and metabolic diseases. However, comparatively, there is less work done in exploring their therapeutic potential in infectious diseases.
Multiple stem-cell-based gene therapy strategies have been suggested that may infer HIV resistance including anti-HIV gene reagents and gene combinatorial strategies giving rise to anti-HIV gene-modified HSPCs. Such stem cells can hamper HIV progression in the body by interrupting key stages of HIV proliferation: viral entry, viral integration, HIV gene expression, etc. may also protect leukocytes from being infected. Hypo-immunogenicity and unique immunosuppressive properties of MSCs have made them attractive candidates for treatment of HIV-infected individuals. Stem cell therapy as it relates to successful HIV management has been reported in a few instances by Cornell University.
