PepTcell's Influenza Vaccine - Flu-v

The Company's lead product, Flu-v, has been developed to provide a single treatment flu vaccine which is effective against all strains of flu virus, including pandemic strains.

Current flu vaccines only work against specific virus strains. As these strains mutate frequently, vaccines also need to be updated. As such they do not provide protection against emerging flu strains, such as seasonal or avian flu. Using a novel proprietary epitope prediction algorithm, PepTcell has successfully identified immunogenic regions of flu virus that have not changed over 60 years, in both human and animal strains of the virus. This allows Flu-v to target conserved regions of the virus conferring long-term protection against the threat of emerging strains.

Unlike traditional vaccines which are grown in highly specialised facilities and whose production is limited by egg supply and the process of growing a vaccine, Flu-v can be quickly and easily manufactured in chemical plants. This allows the vaccine to be made and administered in large quantities prior to a pandemic outbreak, enabling a large proportion of the world to be protected. The vaccine has now reached a very exciting stage of its development. The majority of preclinical proof of principle studies are complete and the vaccine will soon begin clinical trials in
