Mymetics' Novel HIV Vaccine to Begin New NIH-Funded Study at University of California, Davis

MarketWatch: "Mymetics Corporation, a pioneer in the development of vaccines preventing mucosal transmission of human infectious diseases, announced today that its innovative HIV vaccine will enter a new preclinical trial at the University of California, Davis. The study will be led by Professor Christopher J. Miller of the California National Primate Research Center, a leader in immunodeficiency virus transmission in nonhuman primate models, and partially funded by the NIH (National Institutes of Health). It follows a recently completed smaller study at the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science (ILAS) in Beijing, China in which the vaccine provided an unprecedented 100% protection in macaque monkeys. The vaccine is also currently in a Phase I trial in human volunteers."
