Two or more vaccines in a single dosage form.
Recombinant DNA vectors encoding antigens administered for the prevention or treatment of disease. The host cells take up the DNA, express the antigen, and present it to the immune system in a manner similar to that which would occur during natural infection. This induces humoral and cellular immune responses against the encoded antigens. The vector is called naked DNA because there is no need for complex formulations or delivery agents; the plasmid is injected in saline or other buffers.

A general term for diseases produced by viruses.
Substances that augment, stimulate, activate, potentiate, or modulate the immune response at either the cellular or humoral level. The classical agents (Freund's adjuvant, BCG, Corynebacterium parvum, et al.) contain bacterial antigens. Some are endogenous (e.g., histamine, interferon, transfer factor, tuftsin, interleukin-1). Their mode of action is either non-specific, resulting in increased immune responsiveness to a wide variety of antigens, or antigen-specific, i.e., affecting a restricted type of immune response to a narrow group of antigens. The therapeutic efficacy of many biological response modifiers is related to their antigen-specific immunoadjuvanticity.

Low temperature and pressure stability of picornaviruses: implications for virus uncoating. (1/3369)

The family Picornaviridae includes several viruses of great economic and medical importance. Poliovirus replicates in the human digestive tract, causing disease that may range in severity from a mild infection to a fatal paralysis. The human rhinovirus is the most important etiologic agent of the common cold in adults and children. Foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) causes one of the most economically important diseases in cattle. These viruses have in common a capsid structure composed of 60 copies of four different proteins, VP1 to VP4, and their 3D structures show similar general features. In this study we describe the differences in stability against high pressure and cold denaturation of these viruses. Both poliovirus and rhinovirus are stable to high pressure at room temperature, because pressures up to 2.4 kbar are not enough to promote viral disassembly and inactivation. Within the same pressure range, FMDV particles are dramatically affected by pressure, with a loss of infectivity of more than 4 log units observed. The dissociation of polio and rhino viruses can be observed only under pressure (2.4 kbar) at low temperatures in the presence of subdenaturing concentrations of urea (1-2 M). The pressure and low temperature data reveal clear differences in stability among the three picornaviruses, FMDV being the most sensitive, polio being the most resistant, and rhino having intermediate stability. Whereas rhino and poliovirus differ little in stability (less than 10 kcal/mol at 0 degrees C), the difference in free energy between these two viruses and FMDV was remarkable (more than 200 kcal/mol of particle). These differences are crucial to understanding the different factors that control the assembly and disassembly of the virus particles during their life cycle. The inactivation of these viruses by pressure (combined or not with low temperature) has potential as a method for producing vaccines.  (+info)

Induction of a protective antibody response to foot and mouth disease virus in mice following oral or parenteral immunization with alfalfa transgenic plants expressing the viral structural protein VP1. (2/3369)

The utilization of transgenic plants expressing recombinant antigens to be used in the formulation of experimental immunogens has been recently communicated. We report here the development of transgenic plants of alfalfa expressing the structural protein VP1 of foot and mouth disease virus (FMDV). The presence of the transgenes in the plants was confirmed by PCR and their specific transcription was demonstrated by RT-PCR. Mice parenterally immunized using leaf extracts or receiving in their diet freshly harvested leaves from the transgenic plants developed a virus-specific immune response. Animals immunized by either method elicited a specific antibody response to a synthetic peptide representing amino acid residues 135-160 of VP1, to the structural protein VP1, and to intact FMDV particles. Additionally, the immunized mice were protected against experimental challenge with the virus. We believe this is the first report demonstrating the induction of a protective systemic antibody response in animals fed transgenic plants expressing a viral antigen. These results support the feasibility of producing edible vaccines in transgenic forage plants, such as alfalfa, commonly used in the diet of domestic animals even for those antigens for which a systemic immune response is required.  (+info)

IL-12 gene as a DNA vaccine adjuvant in a herpes mouse model: IL-12 enhances Th1-type CD4+ T cell-mediated protective immunity against herpes simplex virus-2 challenge. (3/3369)

IL-12 has been shown to enhance cellular immunity in vitro and in vivo. Recent reports have suggested that combining DNA vaccine approach with immune stimulatory molecules delivered as genes may significantly enhance Ag-specific immune responses in vivo. In particular, IL-12 molecules could constitute an important addition to a herpes vaccine by amplifying specific immune responses. Here we investigate the utility of IL-12 cDNA as an adjuvant for a herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) DNA vaccine in a mouse challenge model. Direct i.m. injection of IL-12 cDNA induced activation of resting immune cells in vivo. Furthermore, coinjection with IL-12 cDNA and gD DNA vaccine inhibited both systemic gD-specific Ab and local Ab levels compared with gD plasmid vaccination alone. In contrast, Th cell proliferative responses and secretion of cytokines (IL-2 and IFN-gamma) and chemokines (RANTES and macrophage inflammatory protein-1alpha) were significantly increased by IL-12 coinjection. However, the production of cytokines (IL-4 and IL-10) and chemokine (MCP-1) was inhibited by IL-12 coinjection. IL-12 coinjection with a gD DNA vaccine showed significantly better protection from lethal HSV-2 challenge compared with gD DNA vaccination alone in both inbred and outbred mice. This enhanced protection appears to be mediated by CD4+ T cells, as determined by in vivo CD4+ T cell deletion. Thus, IL-12 cDNA as a DNA vaccine adjuvant drives Ag-specific Th1 type CD4+ T cell responses that result in reduced HSV-2-derived morbidity as well as mortality.  (+info)

EBV structural antigens, gp350 and gp85, as targets for ex vivo virus-specific CTL during acute infectious mononucleosis: potential use of gp350/gp85 CTL epitopes for vaccine design. (4/3369)

For many years, EBV vaccine development efforts have concentrated on the use of structural Ag, gp350, and have been directed toward Ab-mediated blocking virus attachment to the target cell. There is increasing evidence to suggest that the development of neutralizing Abs in vaccinated animals does not always correlate with protection; nevertheless, it has been postulated that gp350-specific T cell-mediated immune responses may have an effector role in protection. This hypothesis has largely remained untested. In the present study, we demonstrate that CTL from acute infectious mononucleosis patients display strong ex vivo reactivity against the EBV structural Ags, gp85 and gp350. Moreover, long-term follow up studies on infectious mononucleosis-recovered individuals showed that these individuals maintain gp350- and gp85-specific memory CTL, albeit at low levels, in the peripheral blood. These results strongly suggest that CTL specific for EBV structural proteins may play an important role in the control of EBV infection during acute infection. More importantly, we also show that prior immunization of HLA A2/Kb transgenic mice with gp350 and gp85 CTL epitopes induced a strong epitope-specific CTL response and afforded protection against gp85- or gp350-expressing vaccinia virus challenge. These results have important implications for future EBV vaccine design and provides evidence, for the first time, that CTL epitopes from EBV structural proteins may be used for establishing strong antiviral immunity against EBV infection.  (+info)

Detection and induction of equine infectious anemia virus-specific cytotoxic T-lymphocyte responses by use of recombinant retroviral vectors. (5/3369)

Cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) appear to be critical in resolving or reducing the severity of lentivirus infections. Retroviral vectors expressing the Gag/Pr or SU protein of the lentivirus equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) were constructed and used to evaluate EIAV-specific CTL responses in horses. Three promoters, cytomegalovirus, simian virus SV40, and Moloney murine sarcoma virus (MoMSV) long terminal repeat (LTR), were used, and there was considerable variation in their ability to direct expression of Gag/Pr and SU. Vectors expressing EIAV proteins under the direction of MoMSV LTR and using the gibbon ape leukemia virus (GALV) Env for internalization were efficient at transducing equine kidney (EK) target cells and were effective targets for EIAV-specific CTL lysis. CTL from EIAV-infected horses caused lysis of retroviral vector-transduced EK cells expressing either Gag/Pr or SU in an ELA-A-restricted manner. In contrast, lysis of recombinant vaccinia virus-infected EK cells expressing Gag/Pr and SU/TM was often non-LA-A restricted. Five horses were immunized by direct intramuscular injection with a mixture of retroviral vectors expressing Gag/Pr or SU, and one responded with EIAV-specific CTL. This result indicates that retroviral vector stimulation of CTL in horses needs to be optimized, perhaps by inclusion of appropriate cytokine genes in the constructs. However, the studies demonstrated that retroviral vector-transduced target cells were very effective for in vitro dissection of EIAV-specific CTL responses.  (+info)

Human antibody responses to mature and immature forms of viral envelope in respiratory syncytial virus infection: significance for subunit vaccines. (6/3369)

A number of antibodies generated during human respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection have been cloned by the phage library approach. Antibodies reactive with an immunodominant epitope on the F glycoprotein of this virus have a high affinity for affinity-purified F antigen. These antibodies, however, have a much lower affinity for mature F glycoprotein on the surface of infected cells and are nonneutralizing. In contrast, a potent neutralizing antibody has a high affinity for mature F protein but a much lower affinity for purified F protein or F protein in viral lysates. The data indicate that at least two F protein immunogens are produced during natural RSV infection: immature F, found in viral lysates, and mature F, found on infected cells or virions. Binding studies with polyclonal human immunoglobulin G suggest that the antibody responses to the two immunogens are of similar magnitudes. Competitive binding studies suggest that overlap between the responses is relatively limited. A mature envelope with an antigenic configuration different from that of the immature envelope has an evolutionary advantage in that the infecting virus is less subject to neutralization by the humoral response to the immature envelope that inevitably arises following lysis of infected cells. Subunit vaccines may be at a disadvantage because they most often resemble immature envelope molecules and ignore this aspect of viral evasion.  (+info)

Protection of macaques against intrarectal infection by a combination immunization regimen with recombinant simian immunodeficiency virus SIVmne gp160 vaccines. (7/3369)

We previously reported that immunization with recombinant simian immunodeficiency virus SIVmne envelope (gp160) vaccines protected macaques against intravenous challenge by the cloned homologous virus E11S but that this protection was only partially effective against the uncloned virus, SIVmne. In the present study, we examine the protective efficacy of this immunization regimen against infection by a mucosal route. We found that the same gp160-based vaccines were highly effective against intrarectal infection not only with the E11S clone but also with the uncloned SIVmne. Protection against mucosal infection is therefore achievable by parenteral immunization with recombinant envelope vaccines. Protection appears to correlate with high levels of SIV-specific antibodies and, in animals protected against the uncloned virus, the presence of serum-neutralizing activities. To understand the basis for the differential efficacies against the uncloned virus by the intravenous versus the intrarectal routes, we examined viral sequences recovered from the peripheral blood mononuclear cells of animals early after infection by both routes. We previously showed that the majority (85%) of the uncloned SIVmne challenge stock contained V1 sequences homologous to the molecular clone from which the vaccines were made (E11S type), with the remainder (15%) containing multiple conserved changes (the variant types). In contrast to intravenously infected animals, from which either E11S-type or the variant type V1 sequences could be recovered in significant proportions, animals infected intrarectally had predominantly E11S-type sequences. Preferential transmission or amplification of the E11S-type viruses may therefore account in part for the enhanced efficacy of the recombinant gp160 vaccines against the uncloned virus challenge by the intrarectal route compared with the intravenous route.  (+info)

Rapid and sensitive detection of immunoglobulin M (IgM) and IgG antibodies against canine distemper virus by a new recombinant nucleocapsid protein-based enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. (8/3369)

Canine distemper morbillivirus (CDV) infection causes a frequently fatal systemic disease in a broad range of carnivore species, including domestic dogs. In CDV infection, classical serology provides data of diagnostic and prognostic values (kinetics of seroconversion) and is also used to predict the optimal vaccination age of pups. Routine CDV serology is still based on time- and cost-intensive virus neutralization assays (V-NA). Here, we describe a new capture-sandwich enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) that uses recombinant baculovirus-expressed nucleocapsid (N) protein of a recent CDV wild-type isolate (2544/Han95) for the detection of CDV-specific antibodies in canine sera. Recombinant antigen was produced with high efficacy in Heliothis virescens larvae. The capture-sandwich ELISA enabled a clear-cut qualitative evaluation of the CDV-specific immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM serostatuses of 196 and 35 dog sera, respectively. Inter-rater agreement analysis (kappa = 0.988) indicated that the ELISA can be used unrestrictedly as a substitute for the V-NA for the qualitative determination of CDV-specific IgG serostatus. In an attempt to semiquantify N-specific antibodies, a one-step-dilution (alpha method) IgG-specific ELISA was implemented. Alpha values of >/=50% showed very good inter-rater agreement (kappa = 0.968) with V-NA titers of >/=1/100 50% neutralizing dose (ND50) as measured against the central European CDV wild-type isolate 2544/Han95 in canine sera originating from northern Germany. An ND50 titer of 1/100 is considered a threshold, and titers of >/=1/100 indicate a resilient, protective immunity. CDV N-specific antibodies of the IgM class were detected by the newly developed ELISA in 9 of 15 sera obtained from dogs with symptoms of acute distemper. In leucocytes of 5 of the 15 dogs (all of which were also IgM positive) CDV RNA was detected by reverse transcription (RT)-PCR. The recombinant capture-sandwich ELISA detecting N-specific antibodies of the IgG class provided superior sensitivity and specificity and thus represents a rapid and cost-effective alternative to classical CDV V-NA. By detection of specific IgM antibodies, the ELISA will be complementary to RT-PCR and V-NA in the diagnosis of acute distemper infections.  (+info)

Immunization(vaccination) can be discrete as active immunity formed by vaccine. It is resistance and immunologic retention corresponding to natural infection but deprived of risk of sickness. There are two rudimentary categories of vaccines: live attenuated and inactivated. Live attenuated vaccines are produced by altering a disease-producing virus or bacterium in a research laboratory. Vaccines derived from bacterium is called as bacterial vaccine and from virus is as viral vaccine. The subsequent vaccine organism retains the ability to duplicate and produce immunity, but generally does not cause illness. Inactivated vaccines can be self-possessed either by whole viruses or bacteria, or portions of either.. ...

The vaccine platform the Russians are using is not novel. Some of the leading COVID-19 vaccines use adenoviruses, including the Oxford University vaccine and an Ad26 vaccine developed by Johnson and Johnson. Following successful animal trials, both are now being tested in humans. CanSino Biologicals, a Chinese company, has also shown that its Ad5 vaccine is safe and induces immunity against the coronavirus in humans. However, the Russian group has shown that their stable, freeze-dried preparation of the vaccine works to the same extent as their frozen liquid vaccine preparation. This is important for shipping and deploying a vaccine. The Lancet paper outlines acceptable safety data, even with the high dose used. These safety results are not unexpected as the safety of several adenovirus-based vaccines for different diseases has been demonstrated in earlier research. So its safe, at least in healthy people aged 18 to 60, but does it work - does it protect against COVID-19? The Russian group ...

WEDNESDAY, May 20, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- Two new studies offer hope for an effective coronavirus vaccine -- and for the notion that prior infection also confers immunity.. Both studies were conducted in rhesus macaque monkeys, so testing in humans is required for more definitive proof. But in one study, monkeysdeveloped immunity against the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirusafter receivingexperimental vaccines.. Our findings increase optimism that the development of COVID-19 vaccines will be possible, said lead researcher Dr. Dan Barouch. He directs the Center for Virology and Vaccine Research at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston.. As part of the new research, macaques were given experimental coronavirus vaccines that expressed six different forms of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, a structure on the virus surface that it uses to bind with and invade human cells.. The vaccines provide DNA thatenableshost cells to make the spike protein,so that they can then generate antibody responses ...

AstraZenecas coronavirus vaccine is 79% effective in preventing the disease and 100% effective in preventing critical disease and hospitalisation.
Traditionally, chemical agents such as formalin (FA) and β-propiolactone (BPL) have long been used for the preparation of inactivated vaccines or toxoids. It has been shown that FA extensively modifies vaccine antigens and thus affects immunogenicity profiles, sometimes compromising the protective efficacy of the vaccines or even exacerbating the disease upon infection. In this study, we show that natural catechins from green tea extracts (GT) can be used as an inactivating agent to prepare inactivated viral vaccines. GT treatment resulted in complete and irreversible inactivation of influenza virus as well as dengue virus. In contrast to FA that reacted extensively with multiple amino acids including lysine, a major anchor residue for epitope binding to MHC molecules, GT catechin epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) crosslinked primarily with cysteine residues and thus preserved the major epitopes of the influenza hemagglutinin. In a mouse model, vaccination with GT-inactivated influenza virus (GTi virus
PHILADELPHIA - Researchers around the world started work on a coronavirus vaccine on Jan. 11, the moment their Chinese counterparts published the microbes genetic code.. At Inovio Pharmaceuticals in Plymouth Meeting, Pa., scientists made a preliminary vaccine in just a few hours - a speed that was unheard of a decade ago - and they plan to start human testing in April. And a vaccine developed by Cambridge, Mass.-based Moderna Inc. proceeded to human tests even faster: four volunteers received injections last week.. But dont expect to roll up your sleeves any time soon.. As with any new drug, a manufacturer must demonstrate both that a vaccine is safe and that it works. Add in the time needed to produce a vaccine on a mass scale, and government scientists have been predicting the whole process could take 18 months.. That would still be a remarkably short time, representing the fastest development of a vaccine yet. And despite public pressure to speed up the timetable even more, infectious ...
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will host a panel of experts Tuesday to vote on who should get the first doses of a coronavirus vaccine as a second company, Moderna, asked federal regulators for emergency approval..

Posted on 07/06/2020 12:21:37 PM PDT by lightman. Pa. Gov. Tom Wolf said Monday that an expanded mask-wearing order signed by his Health Sectary last week could be in place until there is a coronavirus vaccine. Speaking at an event at the PSECU Child Care Center Playground where new means of funding and support for child care centers was discussed, Wolf later fielded a question regarding how long the mask-wearing order would be in place and if there were any indicators that he was watching for regarding possibly ending it sooner rather than later. I m sort of thinking this is until we get a vaccine, but I don t have any real formal goal there, Wolf said on a video of the news conference. There are some places where people just wear masks, as a matter of, just people wear them. I think it might be a good idea. This is something that actually does make you safer when I m wearing a mask makes me safer when you re wearing a mask, and if we can t practice social distancing that s a really important ...

Googles widely used video platform, YouTube, is now banning any skeptical scientific content that deviates from the official covid-19 narrative. Any information about virus shedding from live virus vaccines is deemed misinformation. Any studies that show how influenza vaccines cause susceptibility to coronavirus infection are censored. Google and YouTube are actively working to brainwash people, to prolong pandemic fears, to maximize submission to their vaccine projects. But their plan is even greater than this.. In order to obtain royalties from the sale of the vaccine, the financiers behind Vaccitech and the Oxford vaccine will need to convince the world that these covid-19 vaccines are needed at regular intervals every year. The first two-shot protocol is an experiment to see how many people will comply and how well these people will tolerate the vaccines. Vaccine injuries are being normalized during this process.. Their intentions are clear. Oxford medical professor, John Bell told NBC ...
An experimental vaccine to prevent human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection was designed by Mexican Max Medina Ramírez, a postdoctoral researcher at the Academic Medical Center of the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands.. This candidate for HIV vaccine is capable of initiating broad spectrum neutralizing antibody precursors (bNAbs) against HIV. The vaccine candidate was developed using protein engineering techniques that allowed stabilizing the envelope of the HIV virus, also known as trimer -used by the virus to infect and, at the same time, circumvent the immune system.. In addition to the stabilization of the trime, the structure was modified to favor the activation of bNAb precursor B cells, which have the ability to prevent the spread of the virus.. This experimental vaccine was tested in several animal models and our results were published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine under the title Design and crystal structure of a native-like HIV-1 envelope trimer that engages ...
The group, calling itself the Rapid Deployment Vaccine Collaborative, or Radvac, formed in March. Thats when Estep sent an email to a circle of acquaintances, noting that US government experts were predicting a vaccine in 12 to 18 months and wondering if a do-it-yourself project could move faster. He believed there was already sufficient information published about the virus to guide an independent project.. Estep says he quickly gathered volunteers, many of whom had worked previously with the Personal Genome Project (PGP), an open-science initiative founded in 2005 at Churchs lab to sequence peoples DNA and post the results online. We established a core group, most of them [from] my go-to posse for citizen science, though we have never done anything quite like this, says Estep, also the founder of Veritas Genetics, a DNA sequencing company.. To come up with a vaccine design, the group dug through reports of vaccines against SARS and MERS, two other diseases caused by coronaviruses. ...

This type of vaccine can potentially be developed and produced more quickly than traditional vaccines…. However, the jury is still out on what type of therapeutic approach will work best. Barclays pharmaceutical research team noted that while mRNA vaccines remain unproven, they are likely to dominate the shorter-term headlines given faster development timelines and rapid early progress. ...
Three pharmaceutical companies that have developed vaccines for COVID-19 are considering issuing a joint public statement that unless they have sufficient evidence of the safety and efficacy of their vaccinations, they will not receive emergency government approval, according to a Wall Street Journal report Will ask. The move is similar to the vaccine being read for regulatory review in early October and Democrats raise fearsS The Trump administration is pressurizing the Food and Drug Administration to approve them.. Companies including Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson and Moderna could issue a statement as early as next week, citing two unnamed sources the Journal said are familiar with the case..

By the year 2025, its a safe bet that half the people who read this will no longer be living. Even worse, some smaller portion of those people will be burning in Hell, with no end to their suffering, for committing the eternal sin of violating the divinity of the human form - made in the image of God - in a reckless attempt to rejoin a low-wage workforce by proving youve had the jab.. It will be the most expensive decision of not just your life, but your eternal existence.. It would be far better to die from the virus and save your soul than sell them both to the demonic evil that now drives the vaccine industry. For this upcoming decision about the vaccine is not one merely of this world, it is a decision beyond this realm, with ramifications that you cannot even begin to imagine since your entire existence is still anchored to this temporary reality, filtered through your biological senses and illusion of separation from God.. Thats why these vaccines will be tainted with the blood of ...
Background:. The team working on their vaccine consists of scientists from the Jenner Institute and the Oxford Vaccine Group. Both of these teams have a lot of experience in vaccine development. They also have experience in during outbreaks; they helped respond to the Ebola outbreak of 2014. The vaccine that they are working on is called ChAdOx1. They have used the same technology from that vaccine to produce other vaccines that fight against the flu, Zika and MERS. They have extensively researched and prepared the technology for ChAdOx1 in preparation for Disease X; COVID-19 has become Disease X. How ChAdOx1 Works:. The first question to ask is what does ChAdOx mean? When you break down the name of the vaccine Ch stands for Chimpanzee, Ad stands for Adenovirus, and Ox stands for Oxford. The Adenovirus that they are using causes the common cold in many chimpanzees.. The Oxford team has altered it so the virus can not grow in the human body. This makes it a very safe vaccine for those with ...

At the end of April she herself readjusted the calendar that proposed the achievement of this milestone for September 21 (the end of summer) thus bringing it forward two months; to July. In full expansion of the Delta variant, considered more transmissible and virulent, many experts already consider that group immunity will require vaccination quotas above 70%. Today 57% of Europeans would have received the full guideline. The update process has been very successful, but we must keep up the effort This variant is very dangerous so I ask ...

  • Using a statistical model, the researchers estimated that women given the vaccine would be half as likely to develop a CMV infection over a 42-month period as those given a placebo. (
  • It has been shown that FA extensively modifies vaccine antigens and thus affects immunogenicity profiles, sometimes compromising the protective efficacy of the vaccines or even exacerbating the disease upon infection. (
  • VZV vaccines elicit active immunization to increase resistance to infection. (
  • Although the trials show the vaccines protect against symptomatic disease, what is still unknown is whether these vaccines protect against infection with the coronavirus, and if not, whether they can prevent someone from spreading the virus to others. (
  • Vaccines designed to protect against HIV can backfire and lead to increased rates of infection. (
  • In a nonhuman primate model of HIV transmission, higher levels of viral target cells in gateway mucosal tissues were associated with an increased risk of infection. (

(Nasdaq: GNCA) for the treatment of herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) infection, showed the experimental vaccine to generate highly significant reductions in both the number of clinical lesion days and rate of viral shedding at six months after the final vaccine dose. (
  • Results of this initial clinical study of GEN-003, if confirmed by further clinical testing, suggest a compelling best-in-class profile for this therapeutic vaccine against HSV-2 infection, that may lead to reductions in both disease transmission and recurrent disease outbreaks. (
  • However, the CTL that come to dominate any immune response to viral infection recognize a very small proportion of all peptides encoded in a viral genome. (

  • Remarkably, the researchers also found that blocking this protein in mice protected them from the lethal effects of dengue virus infection, an important finding given that an effective vaccine against dengue has remained elusive, partly because there are four serotypes of the virus that cause disease. (
  • We characterized the biological and structural properties of two CD4-independent Env clones and found that they exhibited significantly greater exposure of a relatively conserved, linear epitope in the second variable loop (V2) that had previously been associated with decreased risk of infection in a clinical HIV-1 vaccine trial. (
  • Some protection from acute infection with a pathogenic vaginal SHIVSF162P3 challenge was, however, observed with a regimen involving intramuscular DNA vaccine priming followed by either intranasally or intrarectally delivered rFPV boosting. (
  • HIV-infection, chemotherapy, combined immunodeficiencies) typically should not receive live-attenuated vaccines as they may not be able to produce an adequate and safe immune response. (
  • Household contacts of immunodeficient individuals are still able to receive most attenuated vaccines since there is no increased risk of infection transmission, with the exception being the oral polio vaccine. (
  • Scientists began creating viral vectors in the 1970s. (
  • Besides being used in vaccines, viral vectors have also been studied for gene therapy, to treat cancer, and for molecular biology research. (
  • Single-stranded RNA viruses of both positive and negative polarity have been used as vectors for vaccine development. (
  • Early applications in this field really developed in the 1980s and 1990s, often using viral vectors such as adenovirus or retrovirus to deliver genes. (
  • In the early days of gene therapy, the safety of viral vectors was a real issue, and two incidents in particular caused a great deal of concern. (
  • Most viral vectors are designed to be incapable of replication because the necessary genes are removed. (
  • Adenovirus vectors have the advantage of high transduction efficiency, transgene expression, and broad viral tropism, and can infect both dividing and non-dividing cells. (
  • Other viruses that have been investigated as vaccine vectors include adeno-associated virus, retrovirus (including lentivirus), cytomegalovirus, and Sendai virus, as well as influenza virus and measles virus. (
  • This review summarizes the types of DNA vaccine vectors in common use, the immune responses and protective responses that have been obtained in animal models, the safety considerations pertinent to the evaluation of DNA vaccines in humans and the very limited information that is available from early clinical studies. (
  • Hence, DNA vaccine vectors have been developed to maximize the level of antigen expression. (
  • Described are vaccines comprising recombinant vectors, such as recombinant adenoviruses. (
  • Such impairment of MHC class II (MHC II) antigen presentation has generally been thought to be a consequence of down-regulation of endocytosis, so it might be expected that antigens synthesized by the DCs themselves (for instance, viral antigens) would still be presented by mature DCs. (
  • Furthermore, presentation of viral antigens synthesized by the DCs themselves was also severely impaired. (
  • Duration of humoral immunity to common viral and vaccine antigens. (
  • We performed a longitudinal analysis of antibody titers specific for viral antigens (vaccinia, measles, mumps, rubella, varicella-zoster virus, and Epstein-Barr virus) and nonreplicating antigens (tetanus and diphtheria) in 45 subjects for a period of up to 26 years. (
  • Of note, the quality of antibody responses of GTi virus was superior to that with FAi virus, in terms of the magnitude of antibody titer, cross-reactivity to hetero-subtypes of influenza viruses, and the avidity to viral antigens. (
  • Vaccines consist of attenuated microorganisms or cellular components, which act as antigens. (
  • Patients were sequentially enrolled into 1 of 3 dose cohorts (10, 30 or 100 micrograms of each protein) and randomized within cohorts to receive either GEN-003, vaccine antigens without adjuvant or placebo. (
  • To simplify the vaccine design process, epitope discovery is utilized to span the entire sequences of known viral protein antigens. (
  • Influenza virus-like particle vaccines made in Nicotiana benthamiana elicit durable, poly-functional and cross-reactive T cell responses to influenza HA antigens. (
  • Identification of the most prevalent pathogens using next generation sequencing (NGS) allows researchers to collect population-level data to ensure the selection of antigens for the development of vaccines that can be used globally. (
  • The key aspect of a vaccine delivery platform is to be easily programmed towards different antigens and adjuvants application. (
  • These antigens compress the variation found in many viral strains into lengths suitable for vaccine immunogens. (
  • Successful containment and eradication of pandemic viruses is only possible with prophylactic vaccines. (
  • It is thus imperative that the a priori development of drugs and prophylactic vaccines against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens with pandemic potential is given due consideration. (
  • The high infectivity of pandemic respiratory viruses contrasts with the traditionally slow research and development protocols for new antivirals and vaccines, particularly those based on novel technologies or drug classes. (
  • Developing novel antiviral agents, including antiviral drugs and vaccines, is financially costly, leaving some to argue that the development of drugs against emerging viruses and other pathogens with pandemic potential is infeasible, especially because viruses can mutate over time and render treatments less effective or even completely ineffective. (
  • Would a permissive vaccine lead to the emergence of more virulent viruses? (
  • However a vaccine that prevents disease, but not viral replication in the host, would allow virulent viruses to be maintained in the host population. (
  • The more serious flaw lies in making anthropomorphic assessments of what we think viruses require, such as concluding that increased viral transmission is a desired trait. (
  • This long preamble is an introduction to a series of findings which are purported to support the idea that permissive vaccines (the authors call them 'leaky' and 'imperfect' vaccines but I dislike both names because they imply defects) can lead to the selection of more virulent viruses. (
  • The authors wonder if the use of permissive Marek's vaccines has lead to the selection of more virulent viruses. (
  • Nor do the results prove in general that leaky vaccines lead to selection of more virulent viruses. (
  • The results simply show that a vaccine that does not prevent replication will allow transmission of virulent viruses. (
  • Their findings could lead to better strategies to develop vaccines for previously hard-to-prevent viruses. (
  • Antibodies are an essential component of long-lived immunity to viruses, and this discovery could underpin the development of better vaccines to prevent viral diseases. (
  • The findings could underpin the development of more effective vaccines against viruses. (
  • Vaccine developers are well aware of the ability of viruses to change over time, and they create vaccines that account for that. (
  • A viral protein known as NS5 is a promising target for vaccines against Zika and related viruses, according to National Institutes of Health (NIH) scientists and colleagues at Mount Sinai's Icahn School of Medicine. (
  • They also have shown with West Nile, yellow fever, and tick-borne encephalitis viruses that NS5 mutations weaken those viruses, which suggests that NS5 could be a vaccine target for those diseases as well. (
  • However, most licensed viral vaccines have been produced by chemical inactivation of the viruses to eliminate the infectivity and to ensure vaccine safety. (
  • Studies in mice, non-human primates, and humans provide evidence that effective prophylactic vaccines against chronic (low level and high level) replicating viruses [i.e., herpesviruses, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV)] should engage strong cellular T cell immunity ( 3 - 5 ). (
  • Elucidating the mechanisms through which antigen-specific T cell populations mediate long-term protection against viruses at body surfaces and (lymphoid) tissues remains an important goal, and will facilitate the development of more effective and safe prophylactic T cell-eliciting vaccines. (
  • In proof-of-concept studies, the researchers tested three independent vaccines against three different families of viruses. (
  • This effect may be mediated by viral interference with non-polio viruses. (
  • Recent occurrences of filoviruses and the arenavirus Lassa virus (LASV) in overlapping endemic areas of Africa highlight the need for a prophylactic vaccine that would confer protection against all of these viruses that cause lethal hemorrhagic fever (HF). (
  • No other vaccine, antibody or biologic protects against the two viruses for which we have demonstrated robust protection. (
  • Human clinical trials were conducted for viral vector vaccines against several infectious diseases including Zika virus, influenza viruses, respiratory syncytial virus, HIV, and malaria, before the vaccines targeting SARS-CoV-2, which causes COVID-19. (
  • While the immune system can successfully eliminate viral infections in this manner, there are many viruses that escape the immune system altogether. (
  • Inactivated vaccines can be self-possessed either by whole viruses or bacteria, or portions of either. (
  • The research solutions we offer include robotic laboratory automation systems that can integrate liquid handling with molecular and biomarker sample preparation from biological sources, including complex matrices, for the detection of viruses, and viral and host markers at both the genomic and proteomic level. (
  • The NIH grant will support further development of a safe and effective mucosal universal influenza vaccine against emerging or re-emerging influenza A viruses using a bacterial spore as a vaccine delivery system. (
  • The acknowledging that patients DO get ill after flu shots from these other viruses (VIRAL INTERFERENCE) is priceless yet disturbing. (
  • Two of the principal challenges facing vaccine design today are how to generate protective antibody responses against viruses that have evolved sophisticated strategies to evade the humoral immune system and how to more rapidly and effectively produce vaccines to address emerging epidemics. (
  • The wide range of existing viruses, their production methods, and the emergence of new public health threats make it extremely difficult to homogenize viral vaccine manufacturing. (
  • There are a number of alternate vaccination strategies in current development which may circumvent the need for annual re-vaccination, including new platform technologies such as viral-vectored vaccines. (
  • National vaccination rates are low,' she says, 'even for vaccines that have been recommended for many years. (
  • In a mouse model, vaccination with GT-inactivated influenza virus (GTi virus) elicited higher levels of viral neutralizing antibodies than FA-inactivated virus (FAi virus). (
  • The vaccination completely protected the mice from a lethal challenge and restricted the challenge viral replication in the lungs. (
  • Another monitoring system is the CDC's Vaccine Safety Datalink , which uses electronic health data from nine health care organizations in the U.S. to identify adverse events related to vaccination in near real time. (
  • Scientists at Yerkes National Primate Research Center at Emory University, have newly published results that support a straightforward explanation for the backfire effect: vaccination may increase the number of immune cells that serve as viral targets. (
  • The vaccines are suitable for repeated use, stable at refrigerator temperatures or lyophilized for non-cold chain needle-free application, and amenable to rapid and affordable scale-up for use in both epidemic response and routine vaccination. (
  • In a recent study led by Drs. Adel Benlahrech and Steven Patterson of the Imperial College School of Medicine in London, researchers employed a model vaccine based on structural (Gag) proteins of the simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) to investigate two approaches for potentially broadening the CTL response to vaccination. (
  • Immunization (vaccination) can be discrete as active immunity formed by vaccine. (
  • Any doctor who fails to inform you about the risks associated with vaccines, or who contends you do not have the right to refuse vaccination is violating their own medical code of ethics. (
  • The Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine vaccination is given as a one-time dose. (
  • "My own children received the Covid-19 vaccine because vaccination is the best way to protect our adolescents, teens, and young adults from Covid-19 and its complications," she continued. (

  • Bridges points out that by forgoing vaccines and routine screenings, adults leave themselves vulnerable to diseases that can be prevented or managed if caught early. (
  • Most current vaccines to infectious diseases rely on robust and long-lived antibody production. (
  • But the field has become so grey that vaccines are being sold for diseases not even prevalent in India! (
  • Some experts believe that viral vector vaccines will soon disappear, as mRNA vaccines become the main solution to combat COVID and other diseases. (
  • Indeed, potent antibody inducing vaccines against virally induced diseases are available. (
  • June 10, 2018 - Atlanta, GA - Researchers from GeoVax have developed a flexible "Plug and Play" technology platform that delivers single-dose vaccines that fully protect against emerging infectious diseases such as Zika, Lassa fever, and Ebola. (
  • To demonstrate a broad utility of the platform, we developed prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines for other infectious diseases as well as cancer," said Mr. Basu. (
  • These studies on single-dose vaccines for emerging infectious diseases were supported with funding from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and performed at laboratories of the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) in Fort Collins, CO, Institute of Human Virology, University of MD and NIH's Rocky Mountain Laboratories have demonstrated the broad utility of the platform. (
  • Along with the rapid rise of novel forms of intensive aquaculture, increased global aquatic animal movement and various anthropogenic stress to aquatic ecosystems during the past century, freshwater fish farming industry encounter the emergence and breakout of many diseases, especially viral diseases. (
  • Because of the ability to safely and effectively prevent aquaculture diseases, vaccines have become the mainstream technology for prevention and control of aquatic diseases in the world. (
  • In this review, authors summarized six major cyprinid viral diseases, including koi herpesvirus disease (KHVD), spring viraemia of carp (SVC), grass carp hemorrhagic disease (GCHD), koi sleepy disease (KSD), carp pox disease (CPD) and herpesviral haematopoietic necrosis (HPHN). (
  • Furthermore, the development of specific vaccines respective to these diseases is stated according to preparation methods and immunization approaches. (
  • It is hoped that the review could contribute to aquaculture in prevention and controlling of cyprinid viral diseases, and serve the healthy and sustainable development of aquaculture industry. (
  • For numerous vaccines that have proven effective against other viral diseases, the primary correlate of protection is the generation of broadly neutralizing antibodies (BnAbs). (
  • Peptide libraries, which are comprised of systematic combinations of antigenic peptide fragments, can accelerate the discovery and design of vaccines for these types of viral diseases. (
  • Mimotopes, or peptides that mimic an epitope, are commonly used to develop vaccines and antibodies against multiple types of viral diseases. (
  • Lung and airway organoids are of interest for both drug and vaccine development and are valuable tools for studying infectivity in human respiratory diseases, particularly for challenging viral diseases like COVID-19. (
  • Men who received the Thai RV144 vaccine who nonetheless became infected with HIV had lower viral loads in their semen than men who received placebo, a new analysis of the vaccine study reports in the Journal of Infectious Diseases . (
  • Surging old age population, rising polluted drinking water, development of bioterrorism combined with rising technological development in vaccine industry, growing awareness towards individual health along with initiative taken by various government and non-government institutions have been driving the demand for anti-infective vaccines.Rising incidences of typhoid, TB, hepatitis and other virus borne diseases will drive the market for anti-infective vaccines market. (
  • Further, rising concerns over bioterrorism due to biological weapons along with increasing focus on the immunization programmes for prevention of diseases have been contributing in the growth of Anti Infective Vaccines. (
  • Advances in reverse genetics or structural vaccinology provide technical platforms for the development of new vaccines with the desired level of efficacy and safety, including virus-like particles (VLPs), vectored vaccines, and live attenuated vaccines ( Sette and Rappuoli, 2010 ). (
  • Live attenuated vaccines are produced by altering a disease-producing virus or bacterium in a research laboratory. (
  • In live, attenuated vaccines, such contaminants are not inactivated, and endogenous retroviruses by their very nature as Mendelian transmitted genomes are particularly difficult to eliminate. (
  • A Singapore-based institute has developed a rapid and reliable method for generating safe live attenuated vaccines (LAVs). (
  • Some batches of live attenuated vaccines tested by the research team had tested positive for either sequences of endogenous avian leukosis virus (ALV), or endogenous simian retrovirus (SRV), or porcine circovirus 1 (PCV-1). (
  • Specifically, the Committee is asked to indicate if the new test method described above applied to identify viral genomic nucleic acid fragments should be considered, if validated, for the development/qualification and/or routine testing of biological medicinal products, and particularly live attenuated vaccines. (
  • 3. The Committee should indicate if there is a need to update existing guidance related to the testing and elimination of such substances in the context of development and/or testing of live attenuated vaccines. (
  • Live attenuated vaccines tend to help with the production of CD8+ cytotoxic T lymphocytes and T-dependent antibody responses. (
  • Live attenuated vaccines can induce long-term, possibly lifelong, immunity without requiring multiple vaccine doses. (
  • Live attenuated vaccines can also induce cellular immune responses, which do not rely solely on antibodies but also involve immune cells such as cytotoxic T cells or macrophages. (
  • Live-attenuated vaccines stimulate a strong and effective immune response that is long-lasting. (
  • Additionally, within the five WHO-recommended live attenuated vaccines (tuberculosis, oral polio, measles, rotavirus, and yellow fever) severe adverse reactions are extremely rare. (
  • As precaution, live-attenuated vaccines are not typically administered during pregnancy. (
  • Some live attenuated vaccines have additional common, mild adverse effects due to their administration route. (
  • Compared to inactivated vaccines, live-attenuated vaccines are more prone to immunization errors as they must be kept under strict conditions during the cold chain and carefully prepared (e.g., during reconstitution). (
  • Baloxavir marboxil inhibits cap-dependent endonuclease, which leads to inhibition of viral replication. (
  • It inhibits cap-dependent endonuclease, an enzyme specific to influenza, resulting in inhibition of viral replication. (
  • These vaccines prevent disease, but do not block viral replication, and vaccinated, infected birds can shed wild type virus. (
  • The authors note that most human vaccines do prevent replication of infecting virus. (
  • Because virus replication is dependent on host cell components, determining the genes needed for this process allows for the development of novel disease intervention strategies that include anti-virals and vaccines," said study co-author Ralph Tripp, a Georgia Research Alliance Eminent Scholar and Chair of Animal Health Vaccine Development in the UGA College of Veterinary Medicine. (
  • Existing anti-viral drugs slow influenza virus replication by preventing the virus from releasing itself from its host cell. (
  • The authors conclude that although the ALVAC-HIV vaccine "induced significant T-cell immunogenicity," this immunity "was associated with less control of viral replication. (
  • It is a recombinant, replication-competent vaccine consisting of vesicular stomatitis virus (VSV) genetically engineered so that the gene for the natural VSV envelope glycoprotein is replaced with that from the Kikwit 1995 Zaire strain Ebola virus. (
  • Immunoglobulin (IgG)- enriched preparations of the Tα 1 antisera have enhanced activity in blocking viral replication. (
  • The complete protection observed in a stringent challenge model combined with inhibition of viral replication and persistent serum and mucosal antibody responses has not previously been demonstrated in preclinical studies for a COVID-19 vaccine candidate and supports our view of AdCOVID as a leading COVID-19 vaccine candidate. (
  • Recognising the limitations of this novel method, and in order to conclude on the presence or absence of specific risks, the Committee is also asked to consider whether additional tests would be needed to conclude on the presence of replication competent endogenous and adventitious viral agents. (
  • There's always been an expectation that over time, if these spike proteins do change significantly, the vaccine could be updated to address the changes and still provide the benefit to society that it's intended to," Dr. Kasper explains. (
  • The first two vaccines authorized for use in the United States (created by Pfizer and Moderna) both use mRNA to teach our bodies to recognize and fight off these spike proteins. (
  • In this study, researchers immunized rhesus macaques with five different combinations of vaccines encoding SIV proteins found on the inside of the virus only. (
  • Their project, called MOsaic Natural Selective Targeting of Immune Responses (MONSTIR), is a new approach to create a universal flu vaccine from a combination, or mosaic, of proteins from different segments of multiple virus strains. (
  • This includes hemagglutinin and neuraminidase proteins, two common targets for vaccine research, from both common human flu strains and zoonotic strains, or those that cross over from animals and spread to human populations. (
  • SARS-CoV, the virus that caused a global outbreak of severe acute respiratory syndrome in Asia in 2003, encodes three viral membrane proteins-called viroporins-that play a role in activating inflammatory responses of the immune system. (
  • Called nonstructural protein 1 (NS1), it is the only one of the 10 viral proteins secreted by infected cells to circulate freely in the bloodstream. (
  • This vaccine, encoding the surface prM and E proteins, was potently immunogenic and elicited high and sustained titers of neutralizing antibodies in mice and nonhuman primates following a single intradermal immunization. (
  • See how Sartorius' innovative, groundbreaking solutions advance and accelerate your discovery and development of new vaccines against viral infections. (
  • Researchers studied the effectiveness of trivalent inactivated influenza vaccine against laboratory-confirmed influenza A and B infections in children aged 9 months to 3 years. (
  • Our researchers have identified a molecular switch that impacts immune responses to viral infections, and whether or not protective antibodies are produced. (
  • Our researchers have identified that the protein T-bet determines how the immune system responds to viral infections. (
  • The research showed that T-bet enables immune T cells to distinguish between different viral infections, controlling whether or not protective antibodies are produced. (
  • Ms Sheikh said the team discovered that T-bet was an essential switch that enabled T cells to stimulate antibody production in response to viral infections. (
  • These findings reconcile a controversy in the field about how the immune system can distinguish between different viral infections, and respond in distinct ways. (
  • These observations have important implications for the design of prophylactic and therapeutic DC vaccines and contribute to the understanding of the mechanisms causing immunosuppression during systemic blood infections. (
  • For many years, the focus of prophylactic vaccines was to elicit neutralizing antibodies, but it has become increasingly evident that T cell-mediated immunity plays a central role in controlling persistent viral infections such as with human immunodeficiency virus, cytomegalovirus, and hepatitis C virus. (
  • The majority of prophylactic vaccines against viral infections have focused on the induction of neutralizing antibodies. (
  • Nevertheless, they fail to provide long-term efficacy and protection against a number of chronic viral infections. (
  • Despite various promising vaccines that are capable of stimulating robust T cell responses, the critical factors of T cell-mediated immune protection against these chronic infections have not been clearly defined. (
  • Here, we review determinants and mechanistic factors of effective T cell populations implicated in the vaccine efficacy against chronic viral infections, and discuss how this knowledge can be utilized to maximize the possibility of creating effective vaccine platforms for persistent viral infections. (
  • These included prophylactic and therapeutic vaccines for HIV (already in advanced clinical trials), preventive vaccines for Marburg, Sudan and Malaria, all with major epidemic potential with high human lethality, as well as therapeutic vaccines for chronic hepatitis B infections and tumor-associated antigen (TAA)-based-cancer vaccines. (

  • Because there is no treatment or vaccine for dengue, the main method of controlling the disease has focused on reducing mosquito breeding sites and supportive care, such as fluid replacement, for patients with severe dengue. (
  • Unfortunately, influenza vaccine composition needs to be updated annually due to antigenic shift and drift in the viral immunogen hemagglutinin (HA). (
  • The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, suggest that vaccine researchers, when evaluating potential HIV/AIDS vaccines, may need to steer away from those that activate too many viral target cells in mucosal tissues. (
  • Interestingly, animals boosted with rFPV vaccine via either of these mucosal routes had poor circulating T cell responses prior to challenge with SHIV compared to those boosted via the intramuscular route. (
  • It's important to keep in mind that the effectiveness of the vaccines outside the controlled setting of a clinical trial is typically somewhat lower. (
  • This unfortunate effect has been seen in more than one vaccine clinical trial. (
  • In an ongoing clinical trial, the Janssen (Johnson and Johnson) COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to prevent COVID-19 after a single dose. (
  • A single inoculation of MVA-VLP-LASV vaccine protected mice against a lethal challenge delivered directly into the brain. (
  • Mice were immunized with DNA vaccines encoding A/California/04/2009 (2009 CA) or A/South Carolina/1/1918 (1918 SC) as described ( 5 ), and the specificity of the resulting immune response was initially assessed with a previously described H1N1-pseudotyped lentiviral reporter assay ( 6 ). (
  • At this point an immune response can be stimulated when the infected cell displays viral particles via MHC I receptors. (
  • Through natural genetic variability or induced mutation, a small percent of the viral particles should have the capacity to infect the new host. (
  • such chickens are now being introduced by Merck as preferred substrates for vaccine production. (
  • History Vaccine types How they work Recommended Schedule Specific Vaccines Flu HIV/AIDS Human Papillomavirus (HPV) To stick or not to stick? (
  • What are the benefits of the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine? (
  • One of the advances in preventing cervical cancer has been the development of a vaccine against the human papillomavirus. (
  • Why should young men get the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine? (
  • For a fixed vaccine to epidemic strain cross-reactivities to the vaccine and to the epidemic strains. (
  • These short-length immunogens are potentially useable in a vaccine, as they reflect the diversity of features in HIV-1 strains. (
  • On July 10, the institute announced that the Scripps Consortium for HIV/AIDS Vaccine Development (CHAVD), an international collaboration led by Scripps Research, been awarded a $129 million, seven-year award from the National Institutes of Health to advance next-generation vaccines. (
  • GAITHERSBURG, Md., March 15, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Altimmune, Inc. . (Nasdaq: ALT), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company, today announced additional preclinical data for its single dose intranasal COVID-19 vaccine candidate, AdCOVID. (
  • In Silico investigation of the viroporin E as a vaccine target against SARS-CoV-2, American Journal of Physiology-Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology (2021). (
  • To identify new, transformative concepts that could lead to the development of a universal flu vaccine, the Grand Challenge for Universal Influenza Vaccine Development launchedin April 2018 with a call for researchers from any field to submit innovative ideas for developing safe, effective, affordable flu vaccines. (
  • Global Viral Vaccines market size will increase to Million US$ by 2026, from Million US$ in 2018, at a CAGR of during the forecast period. (
  • Clients will benefit from a fully comprehensive range of validated biosafety methods to support cell bank and viral vaccine manufacturing and lot release of drug product, as well as new technologies for pathogen detection, including next-generation nucleic acid sequencing and new cell based viral detection systems. (
  • In 2010 EMA became aware of some scientific publications which presented new information regarding the possible presence of nucleic acid sequences from endogenous2 and adventitious3 viral agents in a few batches of different live attenuated viral vaccines tested by a new analytical technique. (
  • Recent CDC data indicate that only 8 percent of adults have received a pertussis booster vaccine. (
  • A previously completed study in healthy adults and non-susceptible older children demonstrated that this RSV/PIV-3 vaccine candidate had an acceptable safety profile and was well tolerated. (
  • The pain associated with and anticipated for needle injections is a source of great anxiety and distress, not only for children but also for adults, and severely affects the broader acceptance of conventional vaccines. (
  • Developing an HIV vaccine that protects long-term with a single dose is an important goal, especially in places where medical resources can be scarce, anti-retroviral drugs may be unavailable, and the risk of mother-to-infant transmission of HIV can be high. (
