We are learning about the safety of combining a cell therapy (HXTC therapy) with regular doses of a drug called Vorinostat (VOR) as a possible approach for improving the strength of your immune system against HIV. In this study, we will collect your blood, remove the cells in your immune system that fight infection (T cells), and expose them to HIV proteins so that they will recognize the HIV virus again. These re-educated T cells are called HXTCs (HIV-specific T cells). In this study we will use HXTC therapy (putting your re-educated T cells back into your body to get your immune system to respond better against HIV) along with the drug VOR, which has been shown to stimulate your resting CD4 cells to become active and release the HIV virus.
