Profectus BioSciences, Inc. Receives $8.6 Million HHS Contract to Accelerate Ebola Vaccine into Human Clinical Studies

Profectus BioSciences, Inc. announced that the company has received a contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) aimed at accelerating the advancement of the company's candidate Ebola vaccine into human clinical studies. In previous preclinical studies conducted in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Department of Defense (DoD) in non-human primates, a single dose of the Profectus vaccine has been shown to provide 100% protection against Ebola Zaire. The one-year contract with the ASPR's Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) will provide $5.8 million in funding to conduct toxicology studies to evaluate the safety of the company's novel VesiculoVax(TM) Ebola vaccine candidate and to manufacture the vaccine for use in Phase 1 clinical studies. The contract can be extended to a total of 13 months and $8.6 million. Upon successful completion of these initiatives, Profectus will apply to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for an Investigational New Drug (IND) designation that would allow initiation of human clinical trials to evaluate the vaccine's safety and immunogenicity in humans. With this most recent funding, Profectus has secured a total of $27.9 million to develop the VesiculoVax(TM) Ebola vaccine, including: HHS, October 2014: $8.6 million; DoD, October 2014: $8.5 million; NIAID, March 2014: $5.4 million; and NIAID, May 2012: $5.4 million.
