This pilot phase I trial studies the side effects and best dose of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-resistant gene modified stem cells in treating HIV-positive patients who are undergoing first-line treatment for Hodgkin or Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Stem cells are collected from the patient and HIV-resistance genes are placed into the stem cells. The stem cells are then re-infused into the patient. These genetically modified stem cells may help the body make cells that are resistant to HIV infection.

  • Feasibility of structured treatment interruption: defined as the ability to achieve >= 10% gene modified cell engraftment level and maintain CD4 counts and plasma viremia at levels required for structured treatment interruption eligibility [ Time Frame: Up to 18 months following infusion of CD34+ gene modified hematopoietic stem progenitor cells ]
  • Presence of confirmed replication competent lentivirus [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
    Any development of confirmed replication competent lentivirus in any patient receiving gene modified cells during the study will be recorded.

  • Presence of insertional mutagenesis [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
    Confirmed insertional mutagenesis in any patient who received gene modified cells during the study

  • Safety of infusion of gene modified cells: defined as Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4 toxicity >= grade 3 related to the infusion of gene modified cells [ Time Frame: Up to 30 days after infusion of CD34+ modified hematopoietic stem progenitor cells ]
  • Safety of O6-benzylguanine/carmustine in vivo selection, defined as < 25% of patients developing Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 4 toxicity >= grade 3 associated with O6-benzylguanine/carmustine administration [ Time Frame: Up to 15 years ]
