Sypharma is honoured to announce that we have collaborated with Vaxine Pty Ltd to manufacture a first in human vaccine and adjuvant against the CoVID 19 pandemic. Vaxine’s COVID19 vaccine using recombinant spike protein together with Advax-CpG55.2 adjuvant officially went into human trials yesterday – meeting their ambitious 30 June 2020 deadline set months ago.
“This is the 16th vaccine to enter trials globally but is the first COVID-19 vaccine developed in the Southern hemisphere to enter human trials, and the first COVID-19 vaccine designed with the help of AI,” said Professor Nikolai Petrovsky. With their lead product Advax delta inulin adjuvant technology for enhanced immunogenicity and protection, vaxine ate uniquely placed as a single stop for the fight against this pandemic. “We achieved great results with Vaxine’s swine flu vaccine developed during the 2009 swine flu pandemic, where we commenced clinical trials of a vaccine within 3 months of discovery of the virus. We hope to achieve similar results with their COVID-19 vaccine candidate when it is ready for human testing,” he says.
Sypharma has a long standing relationship with Vaxine with over a decade of manufacturing Advax delta inulin adjuvant; and are excited and are honoured to partner with this ground breaking work in bringing a CoVID-19 vaccine to market. Sypharma undertook the fill and finish of the CoVID-19 vaccine and the manufacture of the Advax delta inulin adjuvant products.
