Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Results of Phase I Study of HIV Immunotherapy, PENNVAX®-B

Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced that results from a 12-patient phase I study of Inovio's HIV immunotherapy, PENNVAX®-B, in HIV-infected patients revealed that immune response characteristics generated by the immunotherapy were similar to those observed in HIV-infected individuals who without treatment do not progress to further stages of the disease. These extremely rare individuals who self-regulate their HIV infection are called ‘long-term non-progressors’ and it is believed that part of their ability to control infection may lie in their unique immune responses. In this phase I study, Inovio's HIV immunotherapy, which had been previously tested only in disease prevention, drove the expansion of activated HIV-specific CD8+ T cells with functional characteristics similar to those of long-term non-progressors.  HIV targets the immune system, specifically CD4+ T cells, which are responsible for activating CD8+ killer T cells that can kill the virus and infected cells. Unfortunately, with fewer CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, most infected individuals are unable to fight the virus. Inovio's synthetic immunotherapy technology is very effective at generating disease-specific killer T cells in the body. In this phase I study, HIV-infected individuals whose viral load was already effectively suppressed using a highly active antiviral therapy (HAART) received a four-dose regimen of PENNVAX®-B. The investigators observed that the cell-killing substances granzyme B and perforin (both necessary to kill targeted cells and viruses) produced by activated CD8+ killer T cells were present in quantities and characteristics similar to those of long-term non-progressors. Another striking result of this HIV study was that PENNVAX®-B increased the number of HIV-specific CD8+ killer T cells displaying the receptor integrin, which is associated with the ability to carry T cells to the gastrointestinal tract (GIT). The GIT hosts 40%-65% of the body's total immune cells, hence is the most important target organ for HIV, which targets CD4+ T cells and hides in gut mucosa. The increased presence of integrin suggests the potential of such an immunotherapy to better fight or eradicate these reservoirs of HIV infection in the GIT. The therapy was well-tolerated and did not result in any adverse events.
