Three news items all related. From San Francisco station KRON:

Medical tech company claims to have cure for HIV
American Gene Technologies believes it may have a potential cure for HIV-AIDS.

The Rockville, Maryland pharmaceutical company filed a 1,000-page application to the FDA on Wednesday.

Next, the website from the company in question: American Gene Technologies

Redesigning Medicine
AGT uses a proprietary gene delivery platform to rapidly develop patented gene and cell therapies that cure infectious disease, monogenic disorders, and cancers by targeting their genetic root causes.

A bit more:

Gene Therapies
AGT’s platform allows it to pursue exciting clinical “cures” in large and orphan indications and complex diseases. The company has developed individual, intellectual property protected gene therapeutics that are breakthroughs in medicine.

They are not saying very much on their website but in addition to HIV, they are working on a Liver Cancer cure as well as a cure for Phenylketonuria

FInally, this from the Baltimore, Md. CBS affilliate:

Maryland Medical Company Claims To Have Cure For HIV, AIDS
A Maryland medical company has submitted an application to the U.S Food and Drug Administration for a gene therapy it says will eliminate HIV.

American Gene Technologies in Rockville said based on lab tests, the single-dose gene therapy has a “high potential” to be effective.

The company said the therapy, AGT103-T, is a genetically-modified product made from a person’s own cells that focuses on repairing damage to the immune system caused by HIV.

“Our aim is to treat HIV disease with an innovative cell and gene therapy that reconstitutes immunity to HIV and will control virus growth in the absence of antiretroviral drugs,” the company’s chief science officer C. David Pauza said.

A shoe-in for a Nobel if it turns out to work. I wish them luck!
