Immune Targeting Systems to Develop New T Cell Vaccine

Immune Targeting Systems has been developing an exciting new T cell vaccine designed to protect humans from all strains of seasonal and pandemic influenza A. To determine the effectiveness of Flunisyn ITS produced its own live influenza challenge agent derived from the recently circulating Influenza A/California/2009 virus. This challenge virus, manufactured in compliance with the high level of quality and characterization required by the U.S. FDA and other Regulatory Agencies, has a much better infectivity profile than reported for similar challenge viruses. Whilst the main purpose in developing its own challenge virus was to advance the development of Flunisyn and to further understand the natural course of influenza illness, ITS wants to make the virus available to enable and support the development of new antiviral drugs and vaccines. Immune Targeting Systems announced an asset purchase agreement with WCCT Global for ITS' proprietary developed challenge strain. Through this partnership, WCCTG has become the only commercial company offering sponsors the ability to do large scale influenza challenge studies in the United States. The Experimental Human Viral Challenge Model has become widely accepted as an alternative to traditional early stage field trials to show the efficacy of antiviral and vaccine therapies. The WCCTG facility in Costa Mesa, California, has been completely reconfigured to provide private rooms, separate ventilation and other standard containment provisions to accommodate this valuable research model and ensure the safety and comfort of the volunteers and staff.
