The Vero platform’s upstream and downstream processing stages are designed for maximum efficiency and safety, as well as purity of the final product. Despite many recent advances in vaccine development technology, the actual process of bringing new vaccines to the clinical trial stage often remains cumbersome and slow. Even the most elaborate recombinant technologies and vector systems may not integrate smoothly into an existing manufacturing pipeline, and inefficiencies and safety issues may emerge at any step of the process.
This cell development platform has proven effective in the creation of a number of viral vaccines. by Susan Thompson, Technical Director at VxP Biologics Recent years have witnessed a significant amount of innovation in technologies for the development of novel vaccines. These technologies include new vector systems for delivering attenuated vaccines, recombinant technologies for generating [...]
The creation, production and storage of viral vectors all pose highly unusual challenges. by Susan Thompson, Technical Director at VxP Biologics Traditional viral vaccines use attenuated or inactivated forms of viruses to trigger and “train” the body’s immune responses. In recent years, however, pharmaceutical developers have also begun to use viruses as vectors to deliver [...]
Advances in Biological Safety Level 3 technology offer advantages for agile biologic developers. by Raymond E Peck, CEO of VxP Biologics Many types of biologics include live populations of organisms, some of which may be highly infectious in active form. Vaccines, in particular, often contain deadly bacteria and viruses in live but attenuated forms. The [...]
Emerging technologies offer exciting opportunities for the development of novel therapies. by Susan Thompson, Technical Director at VxP Biologics Although commercial sales are certainly a desirable target for pharmaceutical development, they’re far from the only reason to invest in new products. In a number of fields, pharma developers are partnering with contract manufacturing organizations (CMOs) [...]
