HIV/AIDS: could hyperthermia be a treatment?

Hello to all of you,

I know that some studies says fever does or could help against cancer because fever induce the production of lymphocyte T. I know there are some medical centre that already act on it inducing hyperthermia in their patients.

My question is: Could this procedure be helping AIDS patients as well since it increases the level of Lumphocyte T? Or would this be impossible or dangerous?

Thank you very much and my apologies in case I have not been very specific or correct in the medical terminology. Hope I made myself clear enough though.

Best Regards

Re: HIV/AIDS: could hyperthermia be a treatment?

i have to say that the answer to curing hiv just isn't that simple..
if it was,it would of been discovered long ago.
every promising thing so far has not turned out to what is hoped for out of it.
the only thing they have figured out is
how to slow it down so someone like me can live some extra years.
i'm sure that is something that was explored at one time at least.
as to what the results were,i have no idea?
