Transcript of CHAARM

What is CHAARM CHAARM Combined Highly Active
Anti-Retroviral Microbicides CHAARM is a large scale collaborative project
co-funded by the European Commission under
the 7th Framework Programme (FP7)
for Research and Technological Development

aimed at developing existing
and new microbicides as
topical agents, to reduce
transmission of HIV

01/01/2010 – 31/12/2014

Total budget: 17 m €
Microbicides Microbicides are compound that could be applied in the form of a gel, cream or a slow-release device so as to prevent infection with HIV at vaginal or rectal surfaces.

No microbicide has yet been approved for use although a number are being tested in clinical trials.

CHAARM develops new microbicides aimed at both established and new targets so as to help maintain a pipeline of promising candidates and will also develop combinations of microbicides.

Combining 2 or more microbicides in a single product may be much more effective than using a single microbicide and, importantly, may reduce the
likelihood of HIV becoming resistant to the product.

That is what CHAARM is aimed at. PRESS MICROBICIDES
HIV transmission CHAARM project
involves scientists with expertise in a wide range of different disciplines bringing together 31 institutions (Universities, Research Institutes, SMEs and larger industries in microbicides) in 12 countries, including 8 EU Member States, as well as Switzerland,Ukraine, South Africa and the United States of America.
