GeoVax Reports Progress on Its AIDS Vaccine Technology
Date:7/7/2008

, conventional anti-viral drug therapy was given to the primates to reduce the viral RNA infection levels to very low levels creating a non progressor status for the primate. Then the SIV prototype vaccine for the GeoVax AIDS vaccine was administered. Six weeks following the final vaccination, anti-viral drug treatment was stopped and the animals were monitored to determine whether the vaccine could control the SIV infection during the absence of the drugs.

The outstanding results from the study revealed the vaccine controlling the infection in the absence of drugs. In one primate, the reduction in viral levels over pre-drug treatment and vaccination levels was 1000 times. In the other, the reductions in viral levels were 100 times. The excellent control of the virus infection in the absence of drug treatment was associated with the vaccine raising the types of CD4 and CD8 T cells that are found in the rare individuals who spontaneously control their HIV infections.

Based on these excellent results, planning for a therapeutic trial in infected and drug treated humans has been initiated. The intent of therapeutic vaccination is for the vaccine to "control" HIV virus levels in infected individuals to very low levels thus blocking the development of AIDS. Successful therapeutic AIDS vaccination programs with GeoVax vaccines would lead to reduction in the use of costly anti-HIV medications and their often harmful side effects.

Dr. Harriet Robinson, GeoVax Co-founder and Senior V.P. of Research and Development, commented, "I had not anticipated the extent of vaccine control that was achieved in the already infected non-human primates. These are highly promising results that need to be extended into infected humans to see if the vaccine can be used to reduce the need for taking drugs. The results also warrant more extended studies in already infected non-human primates to explore parameters that both limit and enhance the ability for a vaccine to disp
