The technique employs a disabled form of HIV because it is very good at carrying genetic material into T-cells. The new genes program the T-cells to attack B-cells, a normal part of the immune system that turns malignant in leukemia.

The Globe and Mail reposted this NY Times story. I wanted to know how they disabled HIV. HIV and CD-19 and leukemia got nothing at PubMed.

Attenuated HIV and disabled HIV was just as useless as an effective search strategy.
