Stablepharma’s novel patented StablevaX™ technology can thermally stabilise and deliver a wide range of vaccines without the requirement for refrigeration. A stabilised vaccine solution that could eliminate the need for the cold chain and enable stockpiling anywhere in the world.
‘We are making significant progress with our Tetadif-Td programme in partnership with the European vaccine manufacturer BulBio, and we are now receiving very encouraging potency data from our animal challenge trials. This positive data has accelerated our plans to get Tetadif - StablevaX™ into first-in-human clinical trials. As a result, we are embarking on a Series A funding round in order to fund our upcoming clinical trials and scale up our GMP manufacturing’, added CEO Özgür Tuncer.
‘Our aim with the StablevaX™ invention is to ensure that most vaccines can be removed from the refrigerated cold chain and stored for months or even years at room temperature’ says Dr Bruce Roser, Chairman & Founder, ‘having Professor Faust on our team will be a significant boost to our abilities’.
Nick Child, VP & Co Founder, Stablepharma added, ‘We are flattered that Professor Faust has agreed to join our Advisory Board as he brings with him significant expertise in designing and conducting first in human clinical trials, achievement of which is of course our end game for the StablevaX™ Td vaccine, hopefully the world’s first fridge free vaccine’.
