MedImmune Licenses Reverse Genetics Technology to Hungary's Omninvest for Use in Influenza Vaccine Development and Production
Date:10/16/2008

Second Agreement Signed in Third Quarter of 2008 Expands Worldwide

Application of Cutting-Edge Influenza Vaccine Technology

GAITHERSBURG, Md., Oct. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- MedImmune announced today that it has licensed its proprietary reverse genetics intellectual property to Omninvest, a Hungarian research and manufacturing company, to support the development and construction of new vaccine strains to produce non-live human influenza vaccines. Reverse genetics is a method by which viruses such as influenza can be generated from segments of DNA. For potential pandemic influenza vaccines, reverse genetics can be a useful technology because the process does not require manufacturers to work directly with potentially highly infectious pandemic strains, such as H5N1, rather only with segments of the virus's genome. This announcement marks the second agreement of this kind that MedImmune signed in the third quarter of 2008.

"Omninvest has demonstrated decades of commitment to providing protection against influenza, and we commend their commitment to donate some of their product to the World Health Organization (WHO) stockpile for distribution among developing nations," said MedImmune's Jonathan Klein-Evans, vice president, intellectual property. "MedImmune is pleased to license our reverse genetics technology to Omninvest as we have done previously to five other influenza vaccine manufacturers."

MedImmune will receive an upfront payment and has the potential to receive royalties on certain vaccine stockpiles or sales of other influenza products developed using the reverse genetics technology.

Most influenza vaccine manufacturing companies and governmental agencies are now using reverse genetics technology in their development of pandemic vaccine candidates because it allows them to avoid working directly with the infectious, circulating pandemic strains.
