Biopharmaceutical company GenVec Inc (NASDAQ:GNVC) reported on Friday the online publication of a research paper on its new improved vaccine vectors in PloS ONE, which can be accessed at

The company said that the vectors circumvent neutralizing antibodies in order to generate the desired immunologic response.

According to the company, the article titled "Modification of Ad5 Hexon Hypervariable Regions Circumvents Pre-existing Ad5 Neutralizing Antibodies and Induces Protective Immune Responses" is an example of GenVec's proprietary vaccine technology.

Douglas E. Brough, Ph.D., the company's vice president of Research, added the new approach alters key elements of the vector so that a good vaccine response is generated even if an individual was previously exposed to an adenovirus.
