Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The number and function of HIV-specific CD8 cells in patients with HIV [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    The change of differentiation, proliferation, apoptosis, phenotype, etal.

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • All adverse events [ Time Frame: 6 Months ]
    Chills, Fever, Headache, Nausea, Vomiting, Cough, Skin rashes, Anaphylactic shock, Etal.

Estimated Enrollment: 40
Study Start Date: January 2013
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2016
Estimated Primary Completion Date: January 2016 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: HIV-specific CD8 cells
Transfusing HIV-specific CD8 cells 50-100mlonce a week for four times.
Other: HIV-specific CD8 cells
Only receive HAART
No Intervention: Regualar therapy
Only receiving Highly active anti-retroviral therapy(HAART).

Detailed Description:
The research aims at establishing a new treatment strategies of HIV. It will significantly improve the clinical therapy effects and effectively reduce the morbidity and mortality by reconstituting the immune systems of HIV infected patients and combining multiple therapy strategies. Therefore, the research could develop an cloning amplification system of immunocytes in vitro, and improve the antiviral immune system severely damaged before by transfusing the clone cells modified by specific HIV antigen. So HIV infected patients could discontinue the traditional anti-viral drug, but not develop opportunistic infections,which could obviously increase the life qualities of these patients.
