Inovio's Universal H7N9 DNA Vaccine Generates First Protective Antibody Responses Against Virulent H7N9 Virus in 100% of Vaccinated Animals
Date:6/14/2013

w rapidly we can create a DNA vaccine construct to address a new global threat." 

In the preclinical study Inovio researchers constructed a consensus DNA vaccine targeting the HA influenza antigen from sequences collected from several infected H7N9 patients to be broadly protective against all H7N9 viruses. The vaccine was designed, optimized, and manufactured within two weeks, and mice were immunized intramuscularly with two doses followed by electroporation three weeks apart. In an interim analysis, researchers tested sera from the animals against an unmatched H7N9 influenza strain, A/Anhui/1/13. The researchers observed levels of HAI titers, or functional antibodies, that predict protection against the H7N9 virus as well as robust levels of binding antibodies which can block virus entry into host cells as well as inhibit other viral functions.

Generating these very strong immune responses against an unmatched influenza strain adds further to the growing data set indicating the universal protective capability that Inovio's SynCon® DNA vaccines are able to achieve within targeted subtypes. While this study demonstrates that Inovio can respond to an urgent need to address a new subtype of influenza, it also provides further validation of its approach to address the more important need of providing truly preemptive and broad long-term protection against the constant strain mutations that occur within influenza subtypes. The ideal outcome would be to achieve a universal influenza vaccine capable of broad protection against existing and newly emergent unmatched strains across subtypes known to threaten humans.

Using our synthetic consensus design approach, we have created DNA "constructs" for key virus clades (branches) within the Type A subtypes H1N1, H2N2, H3N2, and H5N1 as well as Type B, and target multiple influenza antigens associated with influenza, including the most frequently changing antigen, HA.
