VBI Vaccines Inc. (Nasdaq: VBIV) (TSX: VBV) (“VBI”) is scheduled to present at the Keystone Symposia on Translational Vaccinology for Global Health on Thursday, October 27, 2016 at 7:00 PM BST (2:00 PM ET). The event is being held at the Park Plaza Riverbank London in the United Kingdom.
During the poster presentation, Bivalent eVLP Expression of Envelope and NS1 Antigens as a Vaccine Against Zika, Dr. Marc Kirchmeier, Ph.D., VBI’s Vice President of Formulation Development, will provide an overview of VBI’s eVLP Platform and will summarize recent developments in VBI’s Zika Vaccine Program.“Virus-like particle ("VLP") technology is a proven vaccine approach and the basis for several licensed human vaccines,” said Dr. Kirchmeier. “VBI is applying its own eVLP technology in the development of a novel vaccine candidate to prevent Zika virus infection. Early immunogenicity testing of our Zika vaccine candidate demonstrates our ability to induce high antibody titers, which some research has shown to be a correlate of protection.”
The Translational Vaccinology for Global Health session is part of the Keystone Symposia Global Health Series, which is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. For more information, visit: http://www.keystonesymposia.org/16S1.
