I apologize for this intrusion; I am not nearly a virology expert.  Nor
do
I visit this site often.

However, I wonder:  might it not be possible to fit AIDS victims with
a small device that took blood out of a vein, heated it slightly (enough
to
kill roaming viruses) and then cooled it again?

Alternatively, might it be possible to alternatingly change the pH of
the
blood, first more basic than normal, then less, then more...  through a
slow
IV drip, and thus wipe out the viruses as they form?

I think advantages of this would be that even if it did not kill off the
virus,
it would inherently slow down the mutation rates, such that the body
might
be able to take care of it.

Don't bother replying to me, since I won't be back, though if you all
want
to discuss it, feel free.  However, it is my guess that my thought is
either
silly, or has already been tried.

Anyhow, good day.  (And I hated to see that Zero Population Growth post.

It was reminiscent of a sci-fi book called Arslan, and a little bit
sickening.)
