Immunovaccine Inc. Announces Preclinical Collaboration with the University of Edinburgh's Center for Immunity, Infection and Evolution

Immunovaccine Inc. announced a preclinical collaboration with The University of Edinburgh's Center for Immunity, Infection and Evolution (CIIE). The study will explore if novel CIIE-identified targets, when formulated in the DepoVax delivery system, provide immunogenic responses against parasites that cause life-threatening malaria. The collaborators expect to present data later this year. Malaria is a parasitic disease in which the infection is transferred via bites by Anopheles mosquitoes. The World Malaria Report 2015, released by the World Health Organization (WHO), estimated that there were 214 million new cases of malaria worldwide in 2015, resulting in 438,000 deaths. While there are multiple forms of malaria, this study focuses specifically on the most deadly presentation, in which infected red blood cells stick together, forming clusters within small blood vessels. This process, known as `rosetting,' can result in hypoxia, organ damage, and can contribute to death.
