You seem to have the ability to comprehend this a bit more then I can so let me ask if this couldn't possible be a cure for HIV as well.
My though would be to extract a portion of the cells and cleans them from damaged cells you have a pure version. Then induce the self destruct while in a clean room and allow it all to implode on itself. after this is done, then simply stop the implosion, reintroduce the clean cells, and use the inhibitor to slowly bring the body back to normal. If successful, it will be HIV free.
Or am I thinking way to science fiction on this and what I said essentially the equivalent of using a transporter beam to isolate pathogens and direct them to a containment field instead of re-materializing the entire body. I'm thinking that basically it would be allowing the contamination to kill itself off and then rebuild the body without the flaws. Kind of like instead of fighting a fire one room at a time, let it burn down and rebuild a better house on the same land.
