Therapeutic Emerging Vaccines

INO-4800: Inovio Pharmaceuticals

Inovio Pharmaceuticals has begun human clinical trials on their coronavirus vaccine INO-4800 in April 2020. Results from the clinical trials are expected to be available in September 2020. Inovio aims to produce one million doses of the vaccine by the end of 2020 to perform additional clinical trials and/or emergency use of the vaccine. In 10 weeks from funding, INOVIO has manufactured thousands of doses of INO-4800 to support on-going Phase 1 and planned Phase II clinical trials. In parallel, INOVIO is working to scale up the manufacturing of INO-4800. INOVIO plans to have one million doses of the vaccine available by year-end for additional trials and emergency use, pending appropriate regulatory guidance and funding.

Ad5-nCoV: CanSino Biologics Inc.

CanSino Biologics Inc. is developing Recombinant Novel Coronavirus Vaccine (Adenovirus Type 5 Vector) candidate Ad5-nCoV in phase II stage of development for the treatment of COVID-19. It is co-developed with Beijing Institute of Biotechnology (BIB). It is currently the first novel coronavirus vaccine for COVID-19 that made to this stage in China. The vaccine candidate is built upon CanSinoBIO’s adenovirus-based viral vector vaccine technology platform, which has also been successfully applied to develop the globally innovative vaccine against Ebola virus infection. Results from preclinical animal studies of Ad5-nCoV show that the vaccine candidate can induce strong immune response in animal models. The preclinical animal safety studies demonstrated a good safety profile.

mRNA-1273 Vaccine: Moderna Inc.

mRNA-1273 is a novel lipid nanoparticle (LNP)-encapsulated mRNA-based vaccine that encodes for a full-length, prefusion stabilized spike (S) protein of SARS-CoV-2. The Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) supported the manufacturing of the vaccine candidate for the Phase II clinical trial. This investigational vaccine was developed using messenger RNA (mRNA) and should direct the body’s cells to express a virus protein that hopefully will elicit a robust immune response, having shown promise in animal models.

VTP-500: Vaccitech

Vaccitech’s VTP-500 MERS vaccine utilizes the ChAdOx1 virus platform to encode MERS coronavirus spike protein in order to induce T cells, but also antibodies which block virus-host cell receptor binding and fusion or neutralize virus infection. This program has been partnered with University Of Oxford, Janssen and CEPI. The vaccine has now been manufactured according to GMP practice and has been successfully tested in a Phase 1 clinical trial at Oxford University. CEPI, Oxford University and Janssen have entered into a collaboration worth up to $19M to progress the vaccine through Phase 2 studies and establish a human vaccine stockpile. Vaccitech retains commercial rights for the product while licensing certain rights back to Oxford for non-profit development of the vaccine.

V-SARS: Immunitor

Immunitor is developing therapeutic vaccine V-SARS which is formulated as a pill derived from heat-inactivated plasma from COVID-19 patients administered once-per-day to at least 20 healthy volunteers for at least one month. It is currently in phase I/II stage of development.

In May 2020, Immunitor initiated phase I/II trial titled clinical trial of COVID-19 therapeutic vaccine formulated as an oral pill. The goal of this trial is test safety and immunogenicity of once-per-day day administered orally to volunteers for 15 days. Baseline and post-treatment standard safety parameters will be compared. Blood samples from volunteers will be monitored and immunogenicity lab assays will be undertaken to characterize immune response. The trial is currently in active, not recruiting stage with estimated enrollment of 20 participants and expected to be completed in June 2021.

SARS-CoV-2 rS Nanoparticle Vaccine: Novavax

Novavax is developing SARS-CoV-2 rS nanoparticle vaccine for the treatment of patients with COVID-19 infections. 2019nCoV-101 is a 2-part, randomized, observer-blinded, placebo-controlled, Phase 1/2 trial designed to evaluate the immunogenicity and safety of SARS-CoV-2 rS nanoparticle vaccine with or without Matrix-M adjuvant in healthy participants 18 to 59 (inclusive) years of age. The study will be conducted in 2 parts. In Part 1, at least 1 and up to two SARS-CoV-2 rS constructs will be evaluated in up to 2 cohorts, which may be enrolled in parallel.

An interim analysis of Part 1 safety and immunogenicity data will be performed prior to an optional expansion to Part 2. This trial is expected to be completed by July 2021.
