    Science is advancing at a pace I never imagined possible, however they're not even at phase I trials yet on this therapy.

    I found the citation and full text in case anyone wants to read it.

    I've included the abstract here.
    Bolding is mine!


    Abstract
    A correlation between increase in the integration of Human Immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) cDNA and cell death was previously established. Here we show that combination of peptides that stimulate integration together with the protease inhibitor Ro 31-8959 caused apoptotic cell death of HIV infected cells with total extermination of the virus. This combination did not have any effect on non-infected cells. Thus it appears that cell death is promoted only in the infected cells. It is our view that the results described in this work suggest a novel approach to specifically promote death of HIV-1 infected cells and thus may eventually be developed into a new and general anti-viral therapy.

    its unfortunate that the vast majority of things that work in vitro end up not working in vivo....:-/
