Bavarian Nordic, SGS Partner for Respiratory Vaccine

Bavarian Nordic, a Kvistgaard, Denmark-based biotechnology company, has partnered with SGS, a contract analytical laboratory, to develop a new respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) challenge strain.

SGS says the partnership will assist with advancing a universal vaccine candidate designed to induce protective immune responses against both subtypes (A&B) of RSV.

The project will build upon the results of Phase II trials undertaken by Bavarian Nordic and will include a human challenge study, which will be carried out at SGS’ clinical pharmacology unit in Antwerp, Belgium, using the new RSV challenge strain, once it has been fully developed and validated.
