How far is an HIV / AIDS cure?

The HIV Cure Program at AGT aims to provide a cure to people living with HIV. The HIV epidemic has lasted over 40 years, and the question on everyone's mind is "How much longer until we find a cure?"

Researchers have tried drugs, vaccines, irradiation and transplantation, and even early gene editing, and while the technology has progressed over the years, there is still no widely available cure for HIV. However, there are rare cases when HIV has been declared cured, and researchers have learned a lot from these cases -- principally that HIV is a curable condition. Developing a safe and scalable method to deliver curative value to patients in mass is what our HIV cure program is all about. With exciting preclinical data and even early efficacy signs from a phase 1 human trial (phase 1 trials do not generally produce efficacy signals) we are very excited to continue clinical development of AGT103-T, a gene therapy targeting HIV. It's still too early to know for sure whether our gene therapy will truly be the missing cure, and it's incredibly difficult to predict the timing of clinical trials, but we are incredibly optimistic about our clinical trials and it is our hope to bring a cure to market in a few short years.
