Engineered mesenchymal stem cells for the prevention and treatment of HIV



Tulane University is actively seeking commercial entities to further develop and commercialize compositions to treat and prevent HIV using engineered knockout mesenchymal stem cells.


MSCs may be used to prevent HIV infection-exposure or post-exposure. MSC compositions may be used to treat HIV infection alone or in combination with anti-retroviral therapy. Knockout MSCs were able to differentiate into HIV-resistant hematopoietic stem cells.
