One of the primary concerns of conventional vaccination is historically low efficacy. BiondVax (NASDAQ: BVXV), which earlier this month received an investment of $2.8 million to continue its development, is focused on creating a universal flu vaccine that would provide effective, multi-season protection. The company’s M-001 vaccine was recently featured in peer-reviewed scientific journal Vaccine, which reports that M-001 administered in the 2011 flu season significantly increased protective antibodies against the strain (A/Swiss) that caused the 2014/2015 influenza epidemic. Notably, the A/Swiss strain did not exist when M-001 was administered several years before. The results demonstrate M-001’s ability to provide protection against a mutating virus. “We consider this study to provide validation of M-001’s potential. It is a promising indication that our vaccine may provide improved protection against future flu strains, including potentially pandemic strains that don’t yet exist,” Dr. Tamar Ben-Yedidia, BiondVax’s chief scientist and co-inventor of M-001, stated in a news release.
