Dr. Carl June, an immunologist at the University of Pennsylvania, uses a form of HIV to transform a patient's T cells into leukemia "serial killers," as he puts it. Thanks to his treatment, 9 out of 12 clinical trial patients are in full or partial remission. Pharmaceutical giant Novartis has invested $20 million to bring the treatment to market, and a modified version of the therapy could be used on HIV patients within the next decade or so.
