GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTCMKTS:GOVX) is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing innovative human vaccines using their novel DNA/MVA platform technology. GOVX primary focus is to develop vaccines that prevent and fight Human Immunodeficiency Virus (“HIV”) infections, and they have recently expanded their research and development efforts to include vaccines to prevent Ebola virus infection.
GeoVax’s unique, two component HIV vaccine, a recombinant DNA and a recombinant modified vaccinia Ankara (MVA), is designed to stimulate both anti-HIV antibody and anti-HIV T cell immune responses. GeoVax’s DNA and MVA vaccines are used in a prime/boost protocol in which priming is done with the DNA and boosting with the MVA. Priming and boosting can also be done with the MVA. Both the DNA and MVA express the three major proteins of the HIV virus: Gag, Pol, and Env, and produce non-infectious virus-like particles.

GeoVax’s vaccines are unique in expressing virus-like particles that display the native form of the trimeric membrane-bound HIV-1 envelope glycoprotein. Clinical trials for GeoVax’s preventive HIV vaccines have been conducted by the US National Institutes of Health-supported HIV Vaccine Trials Network (HVTN) with funding from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID). Overall, GeoVax’s vaccines, in various doses and combinations, have been tested in close to 500 humans.
GOVX most advanced vaccines under development address the clade B subtype of the HIV virus that is most prevalent in the United States and Western Europe. The vaccines are being evaluated to determine their potential to (a) prevent HIV infection and (b) to serve as an immunotherapy for individuals who are already infected with HIV.
On October 2 GOVX announced that is has initiated a new program for the development of a safe and effective vaccine to prevent Ebola infection. With a fast-moving epidemic threatening large populations in Africa, and no proven therapy available, an effective vaccine against Ebola is desperately needed.
GeoVax is developing two Ebola vaccines, GOVX-E301 and GOVX-E302. Both are recombinant MVA (modified vaccinia Ankara) vaccines designed to produce non-infectious virus-like particles (VLPs) displaying the Ebola virus glycoprotein. GOVX-E301 is being developed as a single-dose vaccine for epidemic response against the ZEBOV strain of Ebola, the virus responsible for the current outbreak. GOVX-E302 is being developed for routine immunization and is designed to protect against all three versions of Ebola known to be lethal in humans. GOVX-E302 is anticipated to be used in a two-dose regimen.
