DelSite Working Toward Solving Delivery of Influenza Vaccine in Pandemic Situations

IRVING, Texas, Officials of DelSite Biotechnologies, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Carrington Laboratories, Inc. said the company's novel powder-based vaccine delivery technology may solve most of the key obstacles that delay influenza pandemic preparedness which were discussed by experts at the worldwide "Options for the Control of Influenza VI Conference" held in Toronto, Canada last week.

Long-standing problems associated with the production, storage and distribution of vaccines to meet the challenges posed by a pandemic outbreak of an influenza virus, such as the bird flu (H5N1), were highlighted in a series of presentations at the conference.

The following key needs were cited:

1. The ability to have an adequate stockpile of vaccines. Current vaccines must be refrigerated during storage and distribution. Despite its cost and inconvenience, cold storage does not significantly extend the short shelf life of influenza antigens and vaccines. DelSite's GelVac(TM) powder vaccine system has been shown to stabilize and preserve an influenza antigen at room temperature for more than two (2) years without loss of potency.

2. The capability to implement rapid distribution in the event of a full pandemic. According to one flu expert, if the next influenza pandemic is equivalent to the flu pandemic that occurred in 1957 (H2N2 virus), timing of actions by the U.S. government would be critical. In 1957, under transportation systems available at the time, it took only six months for the virus to trav
