MVA-B Spanish HIV vaccine shows 90 percent immune response in humans
Date:9/28/2011

Phase I clinical trials developed by Spanish Superior Scientific Research Council (CSIC) together with Gregorio Maran Hospital in Madrid and Clnic Hospital in Barcelona, reveals MVA-B preventive vaccine's immune efficiency against Human's immunodeficiency virus (HIV). 90% of the volunteers who went through the tests developed an immunological response against the virus and 85% has kept this response for at least one year. Safety and efficiency of this treatment have been described in articles for Vaccine and Journal of Virology science magazines.

The success of this vaccine, CSIC's patent, is based on the capability of human's immune system to learn how to react over time against virus particles and infected cells. "MVA-B vaccine has proven to be as powerful as any other vaccine currently being studied, or even more", says Mariano Esteban, head researcher from CSIC's National Biotech Centre.

In 2008, MVA-B already showed very high efficiency in mice as well as macaque monkeys against Simian's immunodeficiency virus (SIV). Due to it's high immunological response in humans, Phase I clinic trials will be conducted with HIV infected volunteers, to test its efficiency as a therapeutic vaccine.

Weapon's origins

Back in 1999, Esteban's research team began to work in the development and preclinical studies of MVA-B, which name comes from its composition, based in Modified Ankara Vaccinia virus. MVA-B is an attenuated virus, which has already been used in the past to eradicate smallpox, and also as a model in the research of many other vaccines. The "B" stands for the HIV subtype it is meant to work against, the most common in Europe.

Development of MVA-B is based in the insertion of four HIV genes (Gag, Pol, Nef & Env) in Vaccina's genetic sequence. A healthy immunitary system is able to react against MVA.

On the other hand, the inserted HIV genes in its DNA are not able to self-replicate, which guar
