GOVX-B11 HIV Vaccine News

August 10, 2020 - The development of GeoVax’s preventive HIV vaccine (GOVX-B11) from preclinical studies to human clinical trials has been supported by funding from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  Following human studies by the HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) with support from NIAID, the Company is now planning for a new Phase 1 human clinical trial (designated HVTN 132) to further assess the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity (elicited antibody responses) of a prime-boost regimen of GOVX-B11 in combination with protein boost vaccines.  Management has expected that HVTN 132 would commence patient enrollment in late 2020 but now anticipates the trial to start during the first half of 2021 due to the trial sites being utilized for COVID-19 vaccine testing.
