ImmunoVaccine Technologies Collaborates with Defence Research & Development Canada to Strengthen Canada's Ability to Deal with Biological Threats
Date:4/14/2009

HALIFAX, April 14 /PRNewswire/ - ImmunoVaccine Technologies Inc. (IVT), a vaccine development company, has announced the signing of a 3-year research agreement with Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC). The research collaboration involves the preclinical application of IVT's DepoVax(TM) vaccine formulation to anthrax antigens to explore new methods to prevent, prepare for, and respond to biological threats.

"Dr. Les Nagata and his research team at DRDC are leaders in developing vaccines to fight deadly microbial pathogens and we look forward to this collaboration," remarked Dr. Marc Mansour, vice president of R&D at IVT. "Because our DepoVax(TM) formulation creates a long-lasting immune response and comes in a dry format that is easily reconstituted, it is well suited for the development of an effective anti-anthrax vaccine."

Anthrax is an acute infectious disease caused by the spore-forming bacterium Bacillus anthracis. Infection with anthrax is very serious, and potentially life threatening. Currently, to protect individuals who may come in contact with anthrax, immunization consists of three injections given 2 weeks apart, followed by three additional injections given at 6, 12, and 18 months. Annual booster injections of the vaccine are recommended thereafter.
