Wednesday, February 07, 2024

GeoVax Labs, Inc. is a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing novel therapies and vaccines for solid tumor cancers and many of the world’s most threatening infectious diseases. The company’s lead program in oncology is a novel oncolytic solid tumor gene-directed therapy, Gedeptin®, presently in a multicenter Phase 1/2 clinical trial for advanced head and neck cancers. GeoVax’s lead infectious disease candidate is GEO-CM04S1, a next-generation COVID-19 vaccine targeting high-risk immunocompromised patient populations. Currently in three Phase 2 clinical trials, GEO-CM04S1 is being evaluated as a primary vaccine for immunocompromised patients such as those suffering from hematologic cancers and other patient populations for whom the current authorized COVID-19 vaccines are insufficient, and as a booster vaccine in patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). In addition, GEO-CM04S1 is in a Phase 2 clinical trial evaluating the vaccine as a more robust, durable COVID-19 booster among healthy patients who previously received the mRNA vaccines. GeoVax has a leadership team who have driven significant value creation across multiple life science companies over the past several decades.

Initial Phase 2 Data Announced. GeoVax announced positive initial findings from its Phase 2 clinical trial testing GM04S1 as a booster vaccine in patients who had previously been vaccinated with an mRNA vaccine from Pfizer or Moderna. This includes the initial safety and immune response measured 30 days after patients received the vaccine.

GM-04S1 Is Designed As A Successor To Current Vaccines. GM04S1 is an MVA-based SARS-CoV-2 vaccine designed to stimulate immunity against two viral proteins, the spike (S) and nucleocapsid (N). Prior testing showed both antibody and T-cell responses against conserved regions of the virus that are less likely to mutate and protect against future variant strains. Stimulation of both the antibody and cellular arms of the immune systems could provide long-term immunity and durability of the response.
