Why don’t we kill HIV/ AIDS by killing the immune system?


Alright so I was prepping a lesson for class, where I need to cover HIV in the work place.

My question is, since the virus cannot survive without attaching to and replicating through a cell(specifically for HIV, cells with the CD4 molecule) why do we not just use a process such as chemotherapy to kill the cells, stick the patient in a clean room for however long it takes for the virus to die and then restart the immune system through bone-marrow transplants or something that might actually work.

It might be like taking a butchers knife to the patient, I’m just curious if this has been looked into.

Forgive me if this is a dumb question, its definitely not my field.
