GMO characterization

GMO is a:
DNA Virus

Identity of the GMO:
The second genetically modified organism (GMO) used in the trial is the MVA.HIVconsv.
The MVA vector is a modified vaccinia Ankara virus, live recombinant, attenuated by serial passages in cultured chicken embryo fibroblasts (CEF) with contains six large deletions from the parental virus genome. To the MVA it has been inserted a transgene coding for the insert HIVconsv (as in the B/ES/12/09 ChAdV63.HIVconsv GMO) in order to induce an HIV-1 specific T cell immune response. The size of MVA.HIVconsv size after the insertion is estimated to be approximately 180 kbp.
