Reminds me of the use of malaria to cure syphilis in the 1920s !

Malaria causes very high fevers which kills the syphilis spirochete*, but then you're left with malaria ! I hope they're right about the "harmless" HIV strain! eek

*T. pallidum rapidly dies >40 C or 103-104 F. It's optimal growth temp is 33-34 C - below normal body temperature. Did the heat killing studies myself, 30 years ago !
