Date:3/28/2008

ing the massive destruction of CD4 T cells, and also to halt the subsequent slow destruction of the immune system by the latently dormant virus. Individuals will be protected but not totally sterilized, minimizing the likelihood of new infections.

"The use of a HIV-based lentiviral vector represents a truly innovative approach to anti-HIV vaccine and to all vaccination strategies in general. With VRX1023 in particular, we are turning HIV against itself. We are exploiting the virus ability to efficiently produce proteins for vaccination purposes," said Riku Rautsola, PhD, President and CEO of VIRxSYS. "VRX1023 presents us with a renewed hope for the delivery of an anti-HIV vaccine."
