Project BioShield: Consistent financing, markets, indemnity for biodefense vaccine developers needed

mmercialization of products that harness the human immune system to prevent and treat disease. The company is developing a broad portfolio of vaccines addressing a wide range of applications including bacterial and viral diseases, chronic human disease, biodefense and food safety. These include single-dose, oral vaccines that protect against important disease-causing agents and a novel, proprietary vaccine candidate for cholesterol management. AVANT's goal is to demonstrate proof-of-concept for its products before leveraging their value through partnerships. Current collaborations encompass the development of an oral human rotavirus vaccine, vaccines to combat threats of biological warfare, and vaccines addressed to human food safety and animal health.

AVANT is currently engaged in three separate programs with public funding support aimed at the development of biodefense vaccines:

  • A next-generation injectable vaccine against anthrax, now in Phase I clinical development under the direction of DynPort Vaccine Company, with funding from the DoD under the Joint Vaccine Acquisition Program (JVAP);
  • An oral anthrax vaccine currently in preclinical development at AVANT, with support from a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health; and
  • An oral, combination anthrax-plague vaccine currently in preclinical development at AVANT under subcontract to prime contractor DVC, with funding through JVAP and the DoD.
