U.S. Food and Drug Administration Accepts Biologics License Application for Paxvax’s Single-Dose Oral Cholera Vaccine Vaxchora

PaxVax Inc. announced that the FDA has granted Vaxchora priority review status. If licensed, Vaxchora would be the only vaccine in the U.S. against cholera and PaxVax’s second FDA-licensed vaccine after Vivotif (typhoid fever vaccine). The BLA, which was submitted on October 16, 2015, is based on successful results from a 10 and 90-day cholera challenge trial, as well as two other safety and immunogenicity trials in healthy adults. More than 3,000 participants were enrolled in the phase 3 trials that evaluated Vaxchora at sites in Australia and the United States. Vaxchora also successfully met the Phase 3 primary endpoints and demonstrated efficacy in an immunogenicity study of older adults 46 to 64 years of age. The FDA’s action date for the Vaxchora BLA is June 15, 2016. The cholera strain used in Vaxchora is CVD 103-HgR, which was in-licensed from the University of Maryland School of Medicine’s Center for Vaccine Development in 2010. If approved, Vaxchora will be commercialized through the existing PaxVax marketing and sales infrastructure, which currently commercializes Vivotif.
