According to UPI.com, "Immunotherapy has shown promise in treating cancer in HIV patients... Checkpoint inhibitors kept the viral loads of 93 percent of cancer patients with HIV suppressed, and was effective against the cancer..." The study's lead investigator, Chul Kim, told the press, "We hope our finding will lead to increased study of checkpoint inhibitors in patients with HIV and cancer," Kim said. "There are signals in this analysis and other studies that suggest these new cancer drugs may restore an immune response against HIV in patients whose immune system is exhausted by its long fight with HIV."
