Mechanism of Action

MECHANISM OF ACTION

  • Inovio completed initial clinical studies of its HIV vaccine PENNVAX-B, targeting clade B viruses, to achieve proof of principle in generating potent immune responses using its SynCon® technology. In two published phase 1 studies, PENNVAX-B immunization via IM injection generated high levels of activated and antigen-specific CD8+ killer T cells. This ability uniquely positions PENNVAX as an important product candidate for both preventing and treating HIV infections. Using a $25 million contract from the NIH, Inovio designed its universal, multi-clade, multi-antigen PENNVAX-GP immunotherapy targeting the env, gag and pol antigens to provide coverage against all major HIV-1 clades. Inovio’s HIV development focus for both preventive and therapeutic purposes is on PENNVAX-GP.

MARKET

  • As of the end of year 2016 worldwide, nearly 35 million people had died from HIV-related causes and over 36 million were living with HIV then [UNAIDS (2018); WHO (2018)].  HIV is a retrovirus that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), a condition in which progressive failure of the immune system allows life-threatening opportunistic infections and cancers to thrive. HIV is classified into clades, sub-types within which the virus has genetic similarities. The most prevalent HIV-1 clades are B (found mainly in North America and Europe), A and D (found mainly in Africa), and C (found mainly in Africa and Asia) HIV-1 clade C accounts for 48% of worldwide and 51% of African-HIV type 1 cases. It is the most rapidly spreading subtype of HIV. Although highly active antiretroviral therapy regimens have dramatically transformed the treatment of the disease in developed countries, safe and effective HIV vaccines are needed to stop the spread of disease.
