Soligenix Announces Collaboration with Infectious Disease Research Institute to Develop Thermostabilized Biodefense Vaccines Utilizing Novel Adjuvants
Date:6/27/2012

vaccinations required for protective immunity. 

"IDRI is enthusiastic about working with Soligenix to support their efforts in developing their anthrax and ricin vaccine candidates, and are highly confident that IDRI's adjuvant technology can help build effective vaccines," said Darrick Carter PhD, IDRI's Vice President of Adjuvant Technology. "These new candidate vaccines could be the critical solution in providing protection to people in the event there is a bioterror threat from the release of anthrax or ricin toxins." 

The initial work of this collaboration is to be carried out under Soligenix's existing $9.4 million National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID) grant supporting development of advanced heat stable vaccines against anthrax and ricin toxins. The objectives of this work are consistent with the development of product enhancements that the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has advocated for effective biodefense vaccines: long shelf life, rapid onset of immunity, post exposure prophylaxis, and surge capacity for production. For conventional vaccines, achievement of those objectives will also provide solutions that ameliorate problems with cold storage of vaccines. A recent report by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) entitled "Vaccines for Children Program: Vulnerabilities in Vaccine Management," demonstrates the need for thermostable vaccines to eliminate the need for cold chain manufacture and storage. Excursions from cold chain temperatures lead to the inactivation of vaccines, thereby putting recipients of vaccines at risk. Together, IDRI and Soligenix are pursuing additional government development funding to further support this work.  

"We are very pleased to be able to enter into a partnership of this type with IDRI," stated Christopher J. Schaber, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Soligenix. "IDRI possesses novel R&D, manufacturing and technical exper
