Genetic Immunity Presents at First Russian-Chinese HIV Congress in Moscow

Peter Boros, Genetic Immunity’s President presented the Company’s pDNA-based platform technology and clinical trial data relating to HIV in front of an esteemed gathering of HIV experts.

As part of the presentation, Genetic Immunity announced the launch of a Phase III clinical trial for the company’s lead product candidate, a therapeutic HIV vaccine, to be conducted at the Moscow City Center for the Prevention and Control of AIDS, with the planned enrollment of up to 200 patients. Upon successful completion, Genetic Immunity plans to apply for marketing approval in the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) region.

“It was an honor to have been invited and to present in front of such a highly regarded group of HIV experts from Russia, China and the United States. I believe our presentation was well-received and we are all looking forward to a successful trial completion. If marketing approval is granted, our therapeutic HIV vaccine could introduce a paradigm shift in treating HIV,” stated Boros.

The DermaVir platform contains a novel plasmid DNA that encodes most HIV genes. The vaccine is administered topically using the DermaPrep medical device.

“Mr. Boros gave an excellent presentation about Genetic Immunity’s therapeutic vaccine platform with a special emphasis on the company’s HIV results to date. I look forward to completing the planned Phase III trial, and – upon a successful result – to treating patients with a very promising new vaccine product,” added Professor Alexey Mazus, Head of the Moscow City Center for the Prevention and Control of AIDS.

HIV Dating App

Hzone, an innovative social networking app which is available on both Google Play store and Apple iTunes store, is designed to help HIV-infected singles to find companions and social support.

Hzone, a smartphone app specifically designed for HIV dating, was designed to make it possible for HIV-infected people to find the much-needed emotional support from society itself. Justin R, who was present at a recent press conference, claimed that the app could help people to increase their social engagements.

“People who are HIV-infected find dating and finding new friends excruciatingly difficult, as they are often subjected to HIV-related stigma as well as discrimination. However, medical science has proved that HIV-affected people can marry and even have kids. However, if someone is going to date an HIV-infected person or the other way around, both should be a little more careful and take a bit more responsibility than usual if they are going on a date or thinking about marriage,” said Justin, the CEO and managing director of Hzone.

“Hzone is a social networking app which we developed to help HIV singles and people from the LGBT community to socialize. It uses the location of the user’s phone to help people find similar-minded people nearby. The app also comes with a ‘Quick Match’ feature, which helps people to find and meet really interesting people by just swiping their screen to their ‘right’. If the other user likes back, it means that the duo can form a great pair as good friends. Our VIP members can even chat with other members as we do not put any restriction on chatting for our VIP members,” added Justin R.

As of now, Hzone is available on both Google Play store and Apple iTunes store.

The developer also informed that the users of the app can view other people who might be interested in the same fields or topics as them. Users are also allowed to share their experience on the social networking app with the entire community and express themselves in the most creative way possible.

Justin R said, “We cannot control all things in life and bad things sometimes happen, but we should always react to these changes positively. Our app could help HIV-infected people to find true love and emotional support from within society.”

Did you know that the daily pill that saves your life if you’re living with HIV costs just 20 cents a day in sub-Saharan Africa? Highlighting the impact that just 20¢ can have on someone’s life, the new EAT (RED) SAVE LIVES PSA, featuring Martha Stewart, Padma Lakshmi, Elizabeth Falkner, Hannah Bronfman, Angie Mar, Dana Cowin and Hong Thaimee, reminds food fans worldwide the power of what two dimes can buy when you choose to EAT (RED) this June.

(RED)’s fifth annual culinary campaign features an exciting line-up of chefs, food and drink activations, dining experiences and products to turn people’s food and drink choice into a force to fight AIDS, by raising money and awareness for the Global Fund. There are so many ways for food fans worldwide to get involved June…

  • Eat out at restaurants like Blaze Fast Fire’d Pizza where you can order the (RED) VINE Pizza at more than 260 of its locations across the U.S, donating $1 for every order of a (RED) Vine and a Coke, up to $50,000.

  • Order in from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams who will offer a special (RED) Collection for the month of June. Featuring five lovingly made flavors – Coffee with Cream & Sugar, Goat Cheese with Red Cherries, Ricotta Toast with Red Berry Geranium Jam, Ndali Estate Vanilla and dairy-free Dark Chocolate Truffle – delivered straight to your doorstep, each purchase will generate $6 to fight

  • Attend a PlaceInvaders series of intimate pop-up events in New York and Los Angeles. Hosted in secret residential properties, each brunch and dinner seating will feature menus by NYC- and LA-based chefs including Angie Mar (The Beatrice Inn), Patti Jackson (Delaware & Hudson), Sara Kramer and Sarah Hymanson (Kismet and Mad Capra), Jessica Koslow (Sqirl) andMei Lin (Nightshade). Tickets include five courses, (BELVEDERE)REDcocktails, and Josh Cellars wine, and are priced between $120-$150, with $18 from every ticket sold going to fight AIDS – enough to provide 90 days of life-saving medication.

·      Special edition (RED) Echo launching today, Amazon will donate $10 to fight AIDS for every (RED) Echo sold

 

(RED) and Amazon are teaming-up for(SHOPATHON)RED – a special holiday shopping experience offering people a selection of exclusive (RED) products that raise money for the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.

From November 20th through the end of December, shoppers can choose from more than 150 (RED) products including fashion, cosmetics, kitchen goods, tech and more at Amazon.com/RED or via the Amazon App. On December 1st, World AIDS Day, Amazon will highlight (RED), the Global Fund, and (RED) products to bring awareness to the fight, and throughout the campaign special video content from (RED) celebrity supporters will encourage people to shop (RED) and save lives this holiday season.

 

Sharing smart ways to shop and give back, stars including Neil Patrick Harris, Tyra Banks, DJ Khaled, Ricardo Kaka, Allison Williams, Javier Munoz, Jay Ellis, Yvonne Orji  and supermodel Anne V highlight their favorite (RED) product picks, available on Amazon.com/RED.

As the Official Payment Provider of (SHOPATHON)RED, long-standing (RED) partner Bank of America is making every dollar spent go even further.

The life-saving ARV pills, when taken daily, save not only the life of mothers living with HIV; they also prevent the virus being passed to their unborn babies. As well as providing medication, (RED) money to the Global Fund also supports prevention, testing, counseling and care services programs – all key pillars of the fight to end a disease which is preventable and treatable; a disease which needlessly sees an adolescent become infected every two minutes.

Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED), said: “Our collaboration with Amazon will make the gift of giving more impactful than ever before. I’m so grateful to the incredible team at Amazon who have made our ambitions of turning the holidays ‘(RED)’ a reality. Together with their enormous customer base, Amazon is helping to ensure lifesaving HIV/AIDS services are being delivered to communities most in need.”

National AIDS Memorial Receives $100,000 Grant from Quest Diagnostics

Quest Diagnostics employees and executives joined more than 100 community volunteers at the National AIDS Memorial to announce a $100,000 grant to Bolster Community Volunteer WorkdaysQuest Diagnostics employees and executives joined more than 100 community volunteers at the National AIDS Memorial to announce a $100,000 grant to bolster the memorial’s volunteer workday program in 2018.

The Quest Diagnostics grant, one of the largest received by the National AIDS Memorial, will support the memorial’s Community Volunteer Workday program in 2018, help fund new equipment, plants, trees and shrubberies and support maintenance and hardscape improvements. The grant will also help underwrite the National AIDS Memorial World AIDS Day commemoration events on November 30 and December 1.

“We are grateful for the support of Quest Diagnostics, as this grant comes at a critical time in our efforts to tell the story of people who have died from AIDS and ensure their stories are known by future generations,” said John Cunningham, Executive Director, National AIDS Memorial. “The community volunteer workdays are at the heart of our mission and this grant provides important funding to support keeping our 10-acre memorial a beautiful space for healing and remembrance.”

Since 1991, nearly 40,000 volunteers have participated in more than 300 Community Volunteer Workdays at the National Aids Memorial, donating more than 200,000 volunteer hours and planting more than 10,000 trees, plants and shrubs. The sacred ground of the 10-acre, living memorial honors all who have confronted the tragic HIV/AIDS pandemic; those who have died, and those who have shared their struggle, kept the vigils and supported each other during their final hours.

“Quest Diagnostics has been a long-time supporter of the National AIDS Memorial and its mission and we are proud to expand our commitment through this grant,” said Thomas Patrick Plewman, General Manager, IDI/General Health and Wellness, Quest Diagnostics. “The memorial is a special place where people from all around the world come to remember loved ones lost to AIDS, which is why we’re proud to help maintain this national landmark and support the memorial’s community activities.”

Nearly 30 years ago, an original Quest Diagnostics company was the first to develop a test that identified the presence of HIV. As of 2014, an estimated 1.2 million people in the U.S. are living with HIV and less than half have ever been tested for the HIV virus. As a leading provider of diagnostics information services, Quest Diagnostics is dedicated to advancing disease management for the HIV community and raising the standards of care in HIV diagnostics and beyond. Whether a patient is dealing with HIV or another condition, Quest Diagnostics helps collaborate and provide accurate information so patients can make the best decisions for their health and well-being.

About the National AIDS Memorial
: The National AIDS Memorial is a dedicated space in the national landscape where millions of Americans touched directly or indirectly by AIDS can gather to heal, hope, and remember. The National AIDS Memorial, known as “the Grove”, was created twenty-five years ago in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park at the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic as a place where those impacted by AIDS could both grieve and begin the process of healing. In 1996, legislation sponsored by U.S. Representative Nancy Pelosi was signed into law by President Bill Clinton that elevated “the Grove” as this nation’s sole federally-designated National AIDS Memorial. Today, nearly 40,000 individuals from around the world have contributed 200,000 volunteer hours to support the National AIDS Memorial and its mission to provide, in perpetuity, a place of remembrance so that the lives of people who died from AIDS are not forgotten and the story is known by future generations.

Project Angel Food’s 27th Annual Angel Awards 

Project Angel Food’s 27th Annual Angel Awards Provide an Unforgettable Evening Under the Stars

Gala Event Raises $600K and Honored the Late George Michael, Nordstrom, Jason Ball and Gayle Anderson of KTLA


Project Angel Food hosted its 27th annual Angel Awards Gala at on Saturday, August 19, 2017, honoring the late George Michael, at the organization’s Hollywood headquarters, turning the parking lot and adjacent street into a world class wonderland for the 470 supporters, celebrities and media members in attendance. Charitable attendees, including presenting sponsor Chaz Dean, combined to raise $600,000 for Project Angel Food, during an evening that included an auction, celebrity presentations and was highlighted by a once-in-a-lifetime performance by Queen front man Adam Lambert. Lambert sang George Michael’s hits “Faith” and “One More Try” before finishing with Queen’s “Somebody to Love,” which George Michael had also covered.

Auction items included two sets of Will & Grace tickets that included a set visit, taping and a meet and greet with the cast, which sold for $10,000 each. A McLaren driving experience with a 2018 McLaren and a professional race car driver was auctioned for $12,000 and attendees also combined smaller individual donations to raise $20,000 to send 100 children of clients and their parents to “Cinderella” at the Hollywood Pantages Theater. This included a donation by actress and Angel Awards presenter Sharon Lawrence. The Angel Awards also had an anonymous donor donate $10,000 for a one-on-one reading with “Hollywood Medium” Tyler Henry.

As food is at the center of Project Angel Food’s mission, guests were treated to delicacies created by some of Los Angeles’ most famous Chefs. This included Rory Herrmann, Chef/Owner Barrel & Ashes as the evening’s Culinary Director, Jason Neroni, Chef/Owner Rose Café on starters, Neal Fraser, Chef/Owner Redbird/Vibiana for the main courses and Private Chef Stuart O’Keeffe on dessert.

This year’s event held a special significance, as it posthumously honored the legendary performer George Michael, a dedicated friend, volunteer and supporter of the organization and to date, its largest individual donor. George Michael received Project Angel Food’s Elizabeth Taylor Leadership Award, named for the iconic star, who was both a generous and loyal benefactor. One of Project Angel Food’s clients and beneficiaries of the medically tailored meals they deliver every week accepted the award on his behalf.

“George Michael was responsible for keeping our doors open and keeping critically ill members of the Los Angeles community fed when we were in dire need of help,” said Project Angel Food Executive Director Richard Ayoub. “His generosity and kindness will never be forgotten, and through the Goss/Michael Foundation’s support, every meal we provide still has some of his spirit.” Ayoub also added that, “Project Angel Food has entered a new era. It was announced Saturday night that for the first time the organization is receiving funding from the state of California for a pilot program to prove that medically tailored meals can bring down health care costs. As we have long known, food is medicine.”

George Michael’s longtime partner, Kenny Goss, spoke at the event, recalling George’s dedication to the organization and what it meant to both of them.

“When George volunteered here in 1998, I was here with him. And I’ve got to tell you he was so impressed with the staff and volunteers, the quality of the food and the compassion embedded in the meals,” said Kenny Goss. He continued, “I’m so happy that George is finally getting the recognition he deserves with Project Angel Food’s Elizabeth Taylor Leadership Award. There’s been a lot said about George since he died, but I’d love for his legacy to be his music and his generosity.”

George Michael was a special guardian presence for Project Angel Food, when the organization was going through its most trying times. In 1993 Project Angel Food persevered to feed the influx of AIDS patients who turned to them during the height of the epidemic. Struggling to make payroll while sacrificing internally for the good of the community, Project Angel Food received an unsolicited donation, placed on the organization’s doorstep. Contained in an envelope was a check and note from George Michael, for the amount of $25,000. He would donate that same amount every year until his tragic passing in 2016.

Nordstrom was also honored, as a longtime corporate partner and active participant in the Project Angel Food mission.
“Nordstrom is committed to giving back to the communities we serve, and for more than 15 years we’ve supported the outstanding work of Project Angel Food,” said Leslie Martin, Nordstrom Senior Vice President and Regional Manager for Southern California. “We’re humbled to play a part in helping Project Angel Food deliver more and more nutritious meals each year, along with encouragement and hope, to thousands of individuals in need right here in our own backyard.”

KTLA- 5’s Jason Ball, Vice President News and Gayle Anderson, KTLA 5 Morning News Reporter were also recognized for their outstanding commitment to Project Angel Food and its ongoing support of individuals and families in need.

Project Angel Food, since its inception has provided more than 10.5 million meals, free of charge and continues to prepare more than 11,000 meals a week. These lifesaving deliveries bring love and sustenance to people living with critical illness. Project Angel Food has expanded the initial mission of serving people living with HIV/AIDS to include medically tailored meals, prepared by the staff and volunteers, for men and women combatting cancer, kidney failure, congestive heart disease and diabetes. The mission has always remained intact, to feed and nourish the sick, by delivering healthy meals throughout Los Angeles County. More than 98% of the clients are living well below the poverty level, and Project Angel Food is their lifeline, filling a vital need in all communities. The client demographics are testimony to this, 40% Latino, 30% African-American, 21% Caucasian, 5% Asian and 4% other.

CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY AT NATIONAL AIDS MEMORIAL

This week (August 18th) marks nearly thirty years since the Ryan White Comprehensive AIDS Resources Emergency (CARE)Act was signed into law, creating the most comprehensive federal program that provides services exclusively to people living with HIV.

Hemophilia advocates and survivors will gather on the eve of the anniversary at the National AIDS Memorial where construction is underway for a beautifully designed memorial feature being built to forever honor all the lives lost in the hemophilia community to AIDS.

The Hemophilia Memorial feature will consist of a new stone circle inscribed with the names of those in the hemophilia community who have died from AIDS.  It will also pay tribute to the courage and activism of those who worked tirelessly on behalf of the hemophilia community to ensure America’s blood supply is safe and this type of tragedy never happens again.

The hemophilia community was faced with evidence that treatment for their disorder was contaminated with HIV and hepatitis C. Approximately 90% of all people with severe hemophilia were infected with HIV. In response, , the hemophilia community launched a powerful and inspiring fight to right the system that failed them and to make blood and blood products safer for all.

Hemophilia advocates and survivors will gather to view construction progress, share their personal stories and encourage the hemophilia community to share names of loved ones lost.

There is still time for names to be inscribed in the circle before its formal dedication next month.

Information about how to have a name inscribed in the Hemophilia Memorial feature can be found at Aids Memorial Official Website.
