Bionor Pharma's subsidiary, Bionor Immuno AS recently carried out a

re-vaccination study at Norway's largest hospital, using Vacc-4x, the company's

most advanced HIV-vaccine candidate. Twenty six of the forty HIV-patients from

the 2002/03 phase IIa study were followed-up and re-vaccinated during the period

January 2010-June 2010.

 

The abstract of baseline data from this re-vaccination study will be presented

as poster at the XVIII International AIDS conference, 18-23 July 2010 in Vienna,

under the title: "Long-term proliferative CD4+ and CD8+ T-cell memory detected

7 years after intradermal immunizations against short HIV gag p24-like peptides

targeting dendritic cells."

 

The International AIDS Conference (www.aids2010.org) is the largest HIV/AIDS

conference globally. It is held every second year and is an important meeting

place for the international HIV scientific community, pharmaceutical industry,

politicians and media. The Scientific Programme Committee of the conference

selects poster presenters based on a scientific peer- review process. Therefore,

the selection of the abstract from Bionor Pharma is a recognition from the

scientific community of both its news interest and high scientific standards,

even more because Bionor's abstract was a late breaker.
