About Circassia's allergy T-cell vaccines

Circassia is developing a range of allergy T-cell vaccines based on its proprietary ToleroMune® technology.  The company has successfully completed a number of phase II studies with its cat, house dust mite, ragweed and grass allergy therapies.  Clinical results show that short treatment regimes with Circassia's T-cell vaccines can greatly reduce patients' allergic responses, without the need for adjuvants or other immune stimulators, while proving extremely well tolerated.  As a result, the treatments offer major potential clinical benefits compared with existing therapies, and have significant market opportunities.  Over 150 million people suffer from allergic rhinitis in the US and Europe, and approximately 15% - 25% of people in these countries are sensitive to grass pollen.  As a result, the current allergy treatment market is valued at approximately $12 billion per year.  

About Circassia

Circassia was founded in 2006 by a team of highly experienced biotechnology scientists and entrepreneurs, and is chaired by the former Chairman of GlaxoSmithKline, Sir Richard Sykes.  The company is based in the UK on the Oxford Science Park, and in Hamilton, Canada, where its joint venture Adiga Life Sciences is located.  Its ToleroMune technology was developed originally by scientists at Imperial College, London.  Having successfully completed four fundraising rounds, Circassia has raised approximately £93 million ($159 million) and is backed by a syndicate of world-class venture capital and institutional investors, including Imperial Innovations and Invesco Perpetual.
