SARS Vaccine Achieves Neutralizing Responses in First U.S. Human Trial
Date:12/9/2008

SAN DIEGO, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Vical Incorporated (Nasdaq: VICL) today announced that results from a Phase I clinical trial of a DNA vaccine for severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and published in the November 25 issue of Vaccine(1), demonstrated that the vaccine was well-tolerated, and induced neutralizing antibody responses in 80% of the vaccinees and T-cell immune responses in all vaccinees. The Phase I trial was initiated with unprecedented speed, within 19 months of the publication of the SARS coronavirus genetic sequence from which the vaccine was derived, and was the first SARS vaccine human clinical trial conducted in the United States.

The DNA vaccine was developed by the Vaccine Research Center (VRC), National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), NIH, and manufactured by Vical. Three doses of 4 mg each were delivered on Days 0, 28 and 56 with the Biojector(R) 2000 needle-free injection system (Bioject Medical Technologies Inc., OTC Bulletin Board: BJCT). In the article, authors from the VRC detailed safety and immunogenicity results, and concluded, "This vaccine also demonstrates the feasibility of rapid manufacturing and regulatory review and provides additional safety and immunogenicity data to support the concept of DNA vaccination as a potential vaccine platform for future emerging infectious diseases."

After completion of the NIH Phase I clinical trial, NIAID transferred the Investigational New Drug application (IND) for the vaccine to Vical, and the company has evaluated its options to continue development of the vaccine when a medical need arises. "Like many emerging infectious diseases, SARS is suspected of having origins in an animal reservoir and is therefore likely to re-emerge at some point in the future," sa
