outbreaks.

Dr. J. Joseph Kim, Inovio's President and CEO, said: "Foot-and-mouth pandemics are a great threat to global food supply and society. Recent outbreaks in Europe and Asia have wreaked havoc in those areas and caused billions of dollars worth of damage. We at Inovio and VGX Animal Health are extremely pleased with the advancement of our new SynCon™ DNA vaccine for FMD through large animal pilot testing and we look forward to the further development of this important vaccine."

About Foot-and-Mouth DiseaseFoot-and-mouth disease (FMD) affects cloven-hoofed animals such as cattle, pigs, sheep, goats and water buffalo, and is capable of rapidly infecting large numbers of animals. Seven main types of FMD virus are believed to exist today. Like other viruses, the FMD virus continually evolves and mutates. To date there has been no cross-protection between strains even within the different types of FMD virus. Vaccine viruses which are not completely killed have resulted in FMD outbreaks, hence vaccines used today are administered to the herd only once an outbreak is detected in an area in order to limit the rapid spread of infection, thus limiting the potential utility of such vaccines.

While death rates are generally low, the highly infectious nature of the virus has a profound negative economic impact, such as in the dairy industry where cattle may experience reduced milk production, poor growth and permanent hoof damage. An FMD outbreak typically leads to economic sanctions, including the loss of export markets, and can negatively impact tourism as restrictions are placed on the movement of people and animals. This was the case in the 2001 outbreak in the UK.
