GeoVax Initiates Third Site For Therapeutic Testing of Its HIV Vaccine
Date:6/23/2011

ATLANTA, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTCQB/OTCBB: GOVX), a biotechnology company that creates, develops and tests innovative HIV/AIDS vaccines, announced today the opening of a third site for testing the therapeutic potential of its HIV/AIDS vaccine.  The Los Angeles-based AIDS Research Alliance (ARA) will join with two existing members of GeoVax's clinical trial site team: the AIDS Research Consortium of Atlanta and the Alabama Vaccine Research Clinic at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. The ARA is the nation's only independent, nonprofit HIV/AIDS research institute.

The therapeutic trial is the first trial to test the GeoVax vaccine as a possible treatment for HIV-infected people.  Studies with simian prototypes of the vaccine in infected non-human primates have demonstrated the ability to control viral replication in the absence of anti-viral drugs.  The clinical trial in HIV-infected patients will test safety, vaccine-induced immune responses and the ability of the vaccine to control viral replication.

"We are excited to expand our therapeutic trial team to include the AIDS Research Alliance," said Mark Newman, PhD, Vice President of Research and Development at GeoVax.  "They are a group with a mission that parallels that of GeoVax, developing a vaccine to prevent infection by HIV and developing better treatments for those who become infected."

Dr. Stephen Brown, ARA's medical director, said, "The ARA leadership is very familiar with the GeoVax HIV vaccine products through our involvement with the HVTN, and we are excited to participate in this clinical trial.  The development of new products and approaches that build upon existing antiretroviral drugs regimens would be a major breakthrough."

To be eligible for the study, potential volunteers must have started antiretroviral therapy within 18 months of a negative HIV antibody test and must remain on stable antiretrovira
