BiondVax Pharmaceuticals Ltd. (NASDAQ: BVXV, TASE: BVXV) received the statistical analysis of results from a study which demonstrates that BiondVax’s universal flu vaccine (M-001), administered in the BVX-005 phase II trial which took place in 2012, provided participants with increased immunogenicity against future strains which did not exist at the time of the study- in particular the current newly emerged H3N2 influenza (flu) strain that caused the epidemic in the United States in 2015.
Ron Babecoff, BiondVax’s President and CEO, commented, “We are happy that the participants which received our vaccine in the trial three years ago present a higher immunogenicity, even to actual flu strains in circulation now. The independently provided statistical analysis we reported today is very important as it demonstrates that M-001 provides a safety net by broadening the immunogenicity to existing and future flu strains – in this case, against a specific flu strain that back when the trial was conducted, did not yet exist. If our vaccine was approved by the necessary regulatory bodies and available in the market during the last winter, we believe that the recent epidemic could have been prevented. These results are another important data point showing the importance of our work for global public health and in particular for the elderly which are most vulnerable to this dangerous virus.”
