IDRI and Medicago report positive results for Phase I clinical trial for an H5N1 vaccine
Date:4/17/2013

SEATTLE, WA, and QUEBEC CITY, QC, April 17, 2013 IDRI (Infectious Disease Research Institute), a Seattle-based non-profit research organization that is a leading developer of adjuvants used in vaccines combating infectious disease, and Medicago Inc. (TSX: MDG; OTCQX: MDCGF), a biopharmaceutical company focused on developing highly effective and competitive vaccines based on proprietary manufacturing technologies and Virus-Like Particles (VLPs), today reported positive interim results from a Phase I clinical trial for an H5N1 Avian Influenza VLP vaccine candidate ("H5N1 vaccine").

"These positive U.S. clinical trial results confirm that our H5N1 vaccine candidate is the best in class in our opinion, positioning Medicago as a significant player in the global pandemic market. The robustness of our H5N1 vaccine coupled with our rapid speed of production, offers a vastly improved solution in preparing for and managing potential pandemics. We also believe that our H5N1 vaccine with alum is the only alum-adjuvanted pandemic vaccine to achieve the three CHMP immunogenicity criteria," said Andy Sheldon, President and CEO of Medicago. "Moreover, the combination of our vaccine candidate with IDRI's adjuvant generated a robust immune response. In the case of a pandemic, governments will require the rapid development of an effective vaccine within their borders to conquer the spread of the virus, with our cost-effec
