Source Link He told the crowd at the convention center that the vaccine TERAVAC-HIV-1 was made from recombinant proteins aiming "to cause a cellular response against the (HIV) virus."
Source Link "So far, there have been more than 100 clinical tests (on humans) with HIV" in Cuba and other countries, "and all of them have failed," he stressed.
"We are particularly excited by the positive interim results of the HIV-001 study in HIV-positive subjects. This data is a first for DNA vaccines by yielding robust T cell immune responses in people chronically infected with HIV. Even though the HIV viral load of these volunteers was suppressed and brought under control by antiretroviral drugs, their immune systems are not normal and would typically have difficulty generating strong T cell responses to any immune stimulating approach. Coupled with positive data from two earlier trials, Inovio's results demonstrate the potency of our synthetic vaccine technology platform and raises the potential for the development of therapeutic vaccines against HIV and other chronic infections,"
One of the issues of most concern to researchers is the possibility that the injected DNA will actually integrate into one of the human chromosomes inside the cell. The effect could range from no effect or could potentially lead to cancer through alteration of normal DNA. Other disadvantages to DNA vaccines include: Limited to protein immunogens. Risk of affecting genes controlling cell growth. Possibility of inducing antibody production against DNA. Possibility of tolerance to the antigen (protein) produced. Potential for atypical processing of bacterial and parasite proteins.
