About DermaVir
DermaVir is a novel therapeutic HIV vaccine with both antiviral and immunomodulating activities. Genetic Immunity believes that DermaVir has the potential to offer a paradigm change in the treatment of HIV/AIDS based on clinical data showing boosting of HIV-specific T cells and decrease of HIV-infected cells that are not eliminated by antiretroviral drugs. DermaVir has an excellent safety profile similar to vaccines used in healthy adults and children. The goal of DermaVir immune intensification is to modify HIV disease, decrease drug exposure while mainaining undetectable HIV-RNA levels and achieve remission (functional cure) in HIV-infected patients.
