Intervacc completes manufacturing agreement for new vaccine against equine strangles
Intervacc has now completed the negotiations with 3P Biopharmaceuticals in Pamplona, Spain and signed the agreement for contract manufacturing of Strangvac®. The agreement means that the production and documentation of the important validation batches required for registration of the new recombinant vaccine against equine strangles have been secured.
“This is an important milestone in the process to complete the registration of Strangvac® and especially considering that there is a huge need for a safe and efficacious vaccine against equine strangles as evidenced by all current reported outbreaks around the world” says Jan-Ingmar Flock, CEO of Intervacc.
3P Biopharmaceuticals is a strategic partner to Intervacc and this manufacturing agreement fulfills the intentions from previously announced letter of intent and agreements for the first milestones (see Press release dated October 19, 2017). The agreement now signed by the companies covers transfer of the manufacturing technology, production of validation batches and long term future commercial manufacturing.
Strangvac® is Intervacc´s vaccine against strangles, caused by Streptococcus equi in the horse. Strangles is a very contagious and severe infection leading to significant suffering and economic loss for the global equine industry. The vaccine is the first candidate in the pipeline of a new generation of vaccines based on recombinant proteins in Intervacc's developmental program.
