Texas Biomed Files Patent Application for Novel HIV Vaccine
November 20, 2012
The Texas Biomedical Research Institute (Texas Biomed) has applied for a patent for a genetically-engineered vaccine for HIV prevention. The vaccine is designed to be administered in a single dose that will last the patient a lifetime. It targets the outer layers of the body structures that first come into contact with the virus. Officials at Texas Biomed believe that the vaccine could be adapted for use against other infections.
