Heat Biologics and University of Miami Announce Zika Vaccine Collaboration

Heat Biologics, Inc. announced that it has entered into an agreement with the University of Miami for the license and development of a portfolio of patents leveraging its gp96 platform to target the Zika virus and other infectious diseases. Heat has formed a wholly-owned subsidiary, Zolovax, Inc., to focus on the development of gp96-based vaccines targeting Zika, HIV, West Nile, dengue and yellow fever. Clinical and preclinical studies suggest that Heat’s gp96 platform may have a role as a broad-based infectious disease vaccine. Heat has treated more than 200 cancer patients to date with its gp96-based therapeutic vaccines (HS-110 and HS-410), which have induced strong antigen-specific immune response, with an excellent safety profile. In the case of Zika, the placenta is believed to play a key role in virus transmission from mother to fetus. Researchers have observed profound pathological changes in Zika-infected placentas, suggesting that the placenta’s naturally protective barrier function is impaired during Zika infection.  Heat believes that the robust mucosal immune response generated by gp96 in ongoing studies supports the development of a gp96 vaccine that could also stimulate a Zika-specific immune response in the placenta, thus protecting the fetus from virus transmission.
