The iHIVARNA Project’s 5th General Assembly Meeting has been held last 4-5 of February in the H10 Art Gallery Hotel in Barcelona. The General Assembly meetings take place twice per year and include senior representatives from each partner of the iHIVARNA project.
The meeting was focused on two main topics:
1) updating the status of the phase I clinical trial, and
2) start the preparation for the phase II clinical trial.
The first results with the first vaccinated patients are quite optimistic and the discussion on the phase II clinical trial was productive, setting the foundations for this second part of the project.
Next face-to-face meeting will take place in Brussels on June 2016.
iHIVARNA is a European multi-national research project funded by the European Commission. iHIVARNA’s project aims to successfully immunize antiretroviral-treated HIV-infected patients with an mRNA-based therapeutic vaccine, thus improving the efficacy of therapeutic vaccination against HIV infection. An additional objective of the project is to generate new knowledge for reaching the functional cure of HIV infected patients.
The project brings together the expertise of a number of European groups (Spain, Belgium, and Netherlands) in a number of fields required for an adequate development of the therapeutic vaccine (dendritic cell targeting, rational design of immunogens, mRNA manufacturing and immuno-virological monitoring, among others).
