BioSante Pharmaceuticals Announces New Findings for Potential Bird,Flu Vaccine

of bird flu. At the start of the trial, mice received either the H5N1 antigen alone or in a formulation with BioVant. A booster immunization was administered after two weeks. Results indicated that the administration of a BioVant-H5N1 formulation stimulated production of high titers of H5N1-specific antibodies, which were significantly higher than H5N1 alone. Anti-avian flu antibody levels continued to increase over the entire study period, suggesting good duration of immunity.

Avian flu refers to a large group of different influenza viruses that primarily affect birds. While the vast majority of these viruses do not affect humans, the H5N1 strain already has made the jump from birds to humans and in fact, has infected 310 people and killed 190 since the outbreak of the disease in 2003, and more than 250 million chickens have been killed to stop the spread of the virus. Farmers and poultry producers already have suffered losses in the billions of dollars. There is widespread concern that a strain of avian flu will mutate into a new form that is contagious among humans. Since there is currently no truly effective vaccine available to protect humans from H5N1 and humans do not have antibodies to fight this new virus strain, there is significant risk of a pandemic.

An adjuvant is a substance that, when added to a vaccine, enhances the vaccine's effectiveness by stimulating an immune system response. In multiple studies, BioVant has been shown to be safe and cause minimal dose-dependent inflammation at the injection site, and has been shown to both prevent the manifestation of allergic response, and, to effectively 'switch off' established Th2-T-cell-associated allergic disease.
