CEL-SCI's Cel-1000 Shown to Significantly Enhance Immune Response,Against Hepatitis B Antigen in Animals

VIENNA, Va., May 01, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- CEL-SCI CORPORATION announces that CEL-1000 alone increased the immune response against hepatitis B antigen, and that the combination of CEL-1000 with MAS-1, a proprietary water-in-oil adjuvant delivery system owned by Mercia Pharma, induced highly significant increases in specific anti-HBV (hepatitis B virus) antibodies. These findings were presented by Dr. Daniel Zimmerman, Senior Vice President of Research, Cellular Immunology at CEL-SCI at the 10th Annual Conference of the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases in Baltimore, Maryland.

This new finding with CEL-1000 may have broad application for the enhancement of immune responses by individuals who have a poor immune response to vaccinations. It also has application for antigen sparing (reducing the amount/dose of antigen) required for protective immunity, and application to biodefense and pandemic settings for anti-infectious vaccines.

Dr. Zimmerman said, "A good number of people, a great majority of them middle aged and older men, vaccinated against Hepatitis B fail to generate high enough levels of antibodies to be considered protected. These individuals need and deserve a better level of protection."

CEL-1000 has previously been shown to be protective in animal challenge studies against viruses and unrelated diseases, specifically herpes simplex virus, viral encephalitis and malaria. CEL-1000 appears to activate innate (very early stage) and Th1 type (cellular) immune responses to induce a broad- spectrum protection against infection in animal models. The innate immune system is generally accepted to be the first line of defense against infectious agents.

CEL-1000, derived from the beta chain of human MHC-II, is a modified version of a human immune-based protein known to bind to both human and mouse immune cells and appears to act by enhancing the host's protective imm
