Aeras awarded €11.7 million ($16 million) grant from Dutch government
Date:11/12/2010

Rockville/Berlin, 12 November 2010 The Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation is pleased to announce that the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs has renewed its funding to Aeras with a pledge of an additional 11.7 million over four years (2011-2014) to further its efforts to develop new vaccines to help combat the global epidemic of tuberculosis.

This expression of support represents a continuation in the long-standing collaboration between the Dutch government, Aeras and its research partners. This is the second grant to Aeras from the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, representing a total commitment of 30.4 million to Aeras since 2006.

"The forward movement of TB vaccine candidates in the development pipeline owes a great deal to the generous support of the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the people of the Netherlands," said Jim Connolly, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Aeras Global TB Vaccine Foundation. "We are extraordinarily grateful for their foresight and steadfast support of these potentially life saving efforts."

TB is one of the world's deadliest infectious diseases, killing nearly 2 million men, women and children every year. Despite global efforts to prevent and treat TB, the epidemic is becoming more complex and difficult to diagnose and treat due in large part to the emergence of drug-resistant forms of TB and the emergence of the HIV epidemic. TB is responsible for the majority of AIDS deaths in Africa.

New TB vaccines are urgently needed. The currently available vaccine, Bacille Calmette-Gurin, provides some protection against pediatric TB but is unreliable in protecting adult pulmonary TB, the most common form of the disease. As a product development partnership, Aeras collaborates and facilitates research in conjunction with numerous scientists in academic, pharmaceutical, biotechnology and government research centers around the world to develop safer and more immunogenic
