Novavax Announces Selection of a Respiratory Syncytial Virus Vaccine Candidate for Advanced Preclinical Studies
Date:7/22/2009

s at all doses evaluated. The highest titers were observed with vaccine formulations that contained an aluminum-based adjuvant. Following vaccination, mice were exposed to live RSV through the nose. Even without adjuvant, the lowest dose (1.0 mcg) of RSV-F vaccine prevented RSV infection in the lungs of these mice. However, protection from RSV infection was not observed in unvaccinated mice. Based on these favorable pre-clinical data obtained with this RSV-F vaccine candidate and the ability to produce it at commercial yields, the Company has selected it for advanced preclinical development.

Today, the only therapy against RSV disease is a monoclonal F antibody. The antibody reduces RSV-related hospitalizations in infants and young children at high risk of severe disease. However, several injections are required and the lifespan of the antibody in the body has a limited duration. Therefore, a vaccine that induces long lasting protection against RSV-F would be highly desired by healthcare providers. There is currently no approved vaccine for the prevention of RSV and the market potential for such a vaccine could exceed $1 billion annually.

Dr. Penny Heaton, Chief Medical Officer and Vice President of Development at Novavax, stated: "A vaccine against the RSV-F protein is an ideal candidate to progress into advanced preclinical testing. Studies of the monoclonal RSV-F antibody show it protects against hospitalizations for severe RSV disease, suggesting that a vaccine which induces neutralizing antibody against RSV-F has the potential to be a powerful weapon against this disease."

ABOUT RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS

RSV is the most commonly identified cause of lower respiratory tract illnesses in infants and young children. Repeated infections occur throughout life causing moderate to severe cold-like symptoms. More severe lower respiratory tract disease is also seen in elderly a
