Despite the advent of combined antiretroviral therapy (cART), the persistence of viral reservoirs remains a major barrier to cure human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection. Recently, the shock and kill strategy, by which such reservoirs are eradicated following reactivation of latent HIV-1 by latency-reversing agents (LRAs), has been extensively practiced. It is important to reestablish virus-specific and reliable immune surveillance to eradicate the reactivated virus-harboring cells. Some studies have shown that Chidamide can highly activate the HIV reservoirs. The VC-CAR-T cells effectively induced the cytolysis of LRA-reactivated HIV-1-infected CD4 T lymphocytes isolated from infected individuals receiving suppressive cART. Our previous study demonstrated that the special features of genetically engineered CAR-T cells make them a particularly suitable candidate for therapeutic application in efforts to reach a functional HIV cure. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of Chidamide together with Chimeric Antigen Receptor(CAR)-T or T cell receptor(TCR)-T cell therapy based on cART in HIV-infected adults whose plasma HIV has been successfully suppressed after cART.
