ATLANTA, Nov. 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- GeoVax Labs, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: GOVX) ("GeoVax" or "the Company"), a biopharmaceutical firm developing human vaccines for diseases caused by HIV-1 (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) and other infectious agents, today announced its third quarter 2008 financial results and provided an operational update.
Robert McNally, GeoVax's President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased with the progress we've made during the third quarter of 2008 and for the year so far, as we've taken steps to address both short-term and long-term goals. We made a shipment of the vaccine to the HIV Vaccine Trials Network during October, which is a significant step in preparation for the largest clinical trial yet to be undertaken by GeoVax and we look forward to HVTN's initiation of the Phase 2a trial later this year. We are also nearing completion of a license with Vivalis S.A., a French biopharmaceutical company, for manufacturing platform technology for the MVA portion of our vaccine that we anticipate will significantly improve the long-term production capabilities for the vaccine."
