Mimotopes Awarded Major Peptide Supply Contract by the Queensland Institute of Medical Research in the Search for an Effective Malaria Vaccine
Date:2/8/2010

Mimotopes' PepSets™ to be used to identify novel proteins from the malaria parasite for next generation vaccine development

Melbourne, Australia (PRWEB) February 8, 2010 -- Mimotopes Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Commonwealth Biotechnologies Inc., is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a major peptide library supply contract from the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR) for screening proteins from the malaria parasite, Plasmodium falciparum. Funded by the US National Institutes of Health, the project requires the synthesis of up to 27,000 peptides derived from the Plasmodium parasite on Mimotopes’ proprietary PepSet™ peptide library platform. With the use of this technology, QIMR aims to identify those peptides that can be combined to form an effective malaria vaccine. This work builds upon Mimotopes’ recent library supply contracts for screening dengue virus and Mycobacterium tuberculosis (PRWeb December 21, 2009) and previous projects targeting Hepatitis B virus, Hepatitis C virus, human cytomegalovirus, HIV and influenza.

To date, only a handful of protein regions (called peptide “epitopes”) that could act as vaccines against malaria have been thoroughly investigated. Peptide libraries are an important tool in developing new vaccines because they are ideal for screening large numbers of peptides and identifying those that elicit a strong response from the immune system. According to Mimotopes’ CEO, Dr. Nick Ede, “Mimotopes is the originator of peptide libraries and is well-recognized as the global leader in producing large screening sets of peptides for epitope discovery and validation. Using our peptide libraries, the QIMR team will test thousands of potential epitopes that hav
