Abstract:
BioSante Pharmaceuticals, Inc. reiterated today its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement with the U.S. Army's Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases for the development of a needle-free vaccine against ricin, a poisonous substance thought to have been detected in a U.S. Senate mailroom this week. BioSante has provided BioVant(TM), its proprietary nanoparticulate-based vaccine adjuvant and delivery system, and the Army has provided recombinant antigens to be used in potential vaccines against various bioterrorism agents.
