ImmunoVaccine Technologies Signs Agreement with National Institutes of Health to Explore Vaccines for HIV and Malaria
Date:2/25/2009

HALIFAX, NS, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ - ImmunoVaccine Technologies Inc. (IVT), a vaccine development company, has signed a collaborative agreement with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in Maryland, USA. The research collaboration involves formulating NIAID antigens in DepoVax(TM), IVT's vaccine enhancement system, and exploring potential vaccines for HIV and malaria.

"NIAID is a world leader in the study of infectious and immune-mediated disease, and we look forward to seeing how our enhanced DepoVax(TM) delivery system augments this research," said Dr. Marc Mansour, vice president of R&D at IVT.

There are currently a limited number of vaccine formulations capable of inducing potent and durable T cell responses. Several vaccines in development, based on replication-defective adenovirus, are limited in their ability to be used repeatedly. There is an urgent need to develop protein vaccines that can induce antibody and T cell responses, and be used in combination with other vaccines. The goal of this pre-clinical research collaboration is to establish whether a novel vaccine formulation, in which a specified protein is formulated in DepoVax(TM), will induce stronger T cell responses compared to other protein-based formulations. Proteins from HIV, SIV and malaria will be tested.
