NanoBio’s Vaccine Adjuvant Platform Demonstrates Robust Immunity and Cross Protection Against Influenza

Ann Arbor, MI | Posted on September 8th, 2009

NanoBio Corp. announced today that data from a large ferret study indicates that its intranasal, nanoemulsion-based adjuvant elicits robust immunity against influenza using 1/15th of the standard antigen dose, without evidence of toxicity or tolerability concerns. The company also announced that data from a large GLP toxicity study in rabbits demonstrated similarly robust immune responses without signs of toxicity or inflammation.

Data from both studies will be presented on Sunday, September 13th at 11:15 am at the 49th Interscience Conference on Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy (ICAAC) at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA. The poster references are as follows:

Poster # G1-877: Intranasal W805EC Adjuvanted Fluzone Provides Robust Immunity and Cross-Protection in Ferrets

Poster # G1-878: A GLP Toxicity and Immunogenicity Study of NB-1008, an Intranasal W805EC-Adjuvanted-Fluzone Vaccine

NanoBio will sponsor corporate booth # 1711 at ICAAC, where information on the company's development programs for its vaccine, dermatological and anti-infective programs will be available.

About NanoBio Corp.
NanoBio® Corp. is a privately held biopharmaceutical company focused on developing and commercializing dermatological products, anti-infective treatments and intranasal vaccines derived from its patented NanoStat™ technology platform. The company’s lead product candidates are treatments for herpes labialis (cold sores), onychomycosis (nail fungus), acne, cystic fibrosis and a broad platform of intranasal vaccines. The company’s headquarters and laboratory facilities are located in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

About NanoBio’s Vaccine Platform

NanoBio’s nanoemulsion-based, intranasal vaccines have elicited robust immune responses in animals vaccinated against seasonal and pandemic influenza, hepatitis B, RSV, HIV, pneumococcus, anthrax, smallpox and other diseases. The company’s NanoStat™ adjuvant platform technology has demonstrated numerous potential advantages over traditional vaccines, including: the ability to generate robust mucosal, systemic and cellular immunity; antigen sparing qualities; cross-protection against strains not included in the vaccine; ability to adjuvant multiple antigen types without inducing inflammation; thermal stability of the vaccine; and removing the need for needles.

NanoBio Corp. announced earlier in 2009 that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the company’s Investigational New Drug (IND) application for a Phase 1 clinical study of NB-1008, a seasonal influenza vaccine administered intranasally. This Phase 1 study is ongoing.
