    Pd-1 checkpoint is a receptor on T cells, B cells...endothelial cells
    It downregulates immunesystem
    Blocking this pathway has been proven to combat cancer types e.g. lungcancer, melanoma..
    A case study of one person with lungcancer and hiv showed after treament with this pd-1 blocking medicine a great reduction of the hiv virus...

    can this be a promising way to kill and eradicate viruses in human body?
