Describing the pre-clinical data of the candidate Lyme vaccine based on Intravacc’s OMV platform, this study shows that OMV’s expressing Borrelia (lipo)proteins is a promising vaccine concept that might lead to protecting humans against Lyme disease. Currently, no vaccine against Lyme disease, the fastest growing and most common tick-borne illness in North America and Europe, is available for humans. Antibiotics are the primary treatment and are usually successful, but only when given in time. A vaccine would limit the use of antibiotics and the potential rise of antibiotic resistance.

The results of a clinical study with an experimental vaccine against Shigella, intestinal bacteria that cause severe diarrhea and dysentery. The paper was authored by a team of researchers and clinicians at Tel Aviv University, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center, Institut Pasteur, Ariel University and Intravacc. The clinical study in healthy adults shows that the vaccine is well tolerated and immunogenic. Intravacc developed a production process for this conjugate vaccine, manufactured the GMP batch and did stability testing and batch release. For more information, see also our press release
