Inovio Pharmaceuticals' Universal Avian Flu Vaccine Generates Protective Antibody Responses Against Six H5N1 Viruses in Phase I Trial
Date:5/16/2012

BLUE BELL, Pa., May 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Inovio Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NYSE MKT: INO) announced today that its SynCon® avian influenza vaccine generated protective HAI titers against six different unmatched strains of H5N1 in a phase I clinical trial - a distinct clinical achievement on Inovio's path to develop universal influenza vaccines. By design, Inovio's SynCon® flu vaccine is not matched to any single virus. Importantly, the vaccine generated a hemagglutination inhibition (HAI) titer of 1:40 or higher against at least one of the six tested H5N1 strains in 8 of 17 (47%) immunized subjects, demonstrating the vaccine's broad coverage; 12 of 17 (71%) vaccines generated an HAI titer of 1:20 or higher, indicating a positive vaccine response, against at least one H5N1 strain.

Dr. J. Joseph Kim, Inovio's president and CEO, said: "Our goal has been to develop a truly universal influenza vaccine capable of providing years of protection across subtypes and strains. The protective levels of antibody responses generated by our universal H5N1 vaccine against diverse unmatched strains of this dangerous subtype provides proof of principle for our SynCon universal flu program and our other antibody-based vaccine products. We are planning further development initiatives for this program and look forward to forthcoming data from INO-3510, our universal vaccine for the influenza H5N1 and H1N1."

The major challenge to developing broadly effective vaccines against influenza is that within subtypes there are hundreds of strains that may vary slightly and which naturally and frequently mutate to create new strains. Today's vaccines only provide protection by matching targeted virus strains, which are those predicted to be of concern in the next flu season; however, they often fail to be protective because the predicted strain(s) changes as the next flu season emerges. Of even greater concern, subtypes can reassort, i.e. strains from different subt
