GMO characterization

GMO is a:
RNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
The THV01 investigational vaccine comprises two GMOs, THV01-1 and THV01-2, to be injected successively in HIV-infected patients. THV01-1 and THV01-2 are two live recombinant viral vectored vaccines derived from the NL4-3 strain of the HIV-1. They are non-replicative and self-inactivating vectors due to a deletion of the U3 region in the 3’ and 5’ LTR. They are non-pathogenic as all accessory genes from the parental virus (HIV) have been removed. Both GMOs encode the same HIV transgene, composed of clustered peptides and epitopes of the HIV-1 clade B, Gag, Pol and Nef proteins under the regulation of a THERAVECTYS patented human promoter. This transgene is non-functional. The GMOs are pseudotyped by two different serotypes of the G protein of the vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV.G).
