Stockholm, January 12, 2021 - Intervacc AB (publ) announces that the responses to the Day 120 questions regarding the Company’s Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) for Strangvac has been submitted today to the European Medicines Agency (EMA). Intervacc is seeking approval for Strangvac as a vaccine against equine strangles, a highly contagious infectious disease that affects horses globally.
After validating the submission and reviewing the responses, a second list of questions and outstanding issues is expected from the Committee for Medicinal Products for Veterinary Use (CVMP). The Company estimates that it is on track for a positive opinion from the CVMP during Q2 2021.
The vaccine has been developed with an innovative technology and is based on recombinant fusion proteins. The research behind the vaccine’s technical platform has been done together with researchers at Karolinska Institute and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU.
“Upon approval, Strangvac will be the first Swedish Animal Health Vaccine to receive marketing authorization by the centralised EMA procedure covering all 27 member states of the European Union (E.U.), as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. The UK has also decided to follow the EMA approval up until at least first of January 2023.”, stated Dr Andrew Waller, Chief Scientific Officer at Intervacc.
The MAA for Strangvac is based on a successful series of clinical studies demonstrating the safety, immunogenicity, efficacy and DIVA capability of this exciting vaccine. DIVA (Differentiation of Infected from Vaccinated Animals) capability is a key feature for prevalent endemic diseases such as equine strangles in order to distinguish vaccinated animals from those that have been exposed to the bacteria Streptococcus equi.
