TLDR:

  • Calder Biosciences Inc. debuts next-generation vaccine technology for RSV.
  • Their ‘3D Vaxlock’ platform technology achieves 11X more potent immune response compared to standard vaccines.

Calder Biosciences Inc. has introduced a new vaccine technology for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) called ‘3D Vaxlock’. This technology has shown an 11X increase in potency compared to traditional vaccines, leading to a higher level of antibodies that can neutralize the virus. By creating zero-length carbon-carbon bonds between tyrosine residues in vaccine immunogens, the 3D Vaxlock technology enhances the immune response by preserving the 3D shape of proteins in a way that is more effective against infections. This breakthrough in vaccine technology not only improves potency but also increases the shelf-life of the vaccine, making distribution and delivery more efficient.

Additionally, the study demonstrates that the RSV vaccine using this technology generates impressive immune responses in aged animals, suggesting potential benefits for older adults over 75 and newborn children. The irreversible dityrosine bonds created by the technology enhance the stability and efficacy of the vaccine, positioning it as a game-changer in the field of vaccine development. Calder Biosciences Inc. plans to expand the application of their 3D Vaxlock technology to other vaccines like Universal Influenza and Epstein-Barr virus, with the goal of revolutionizing the vaccine space for safer and more potent immunizations.
