Glythera and PATH sign collaboration agreement to evaluate new technology for pneumococcal vaccines
Glythera to provide novel technology to aid the development of pneumococcal conjugate vaccines
The collaboration supports the goal of PATH’s pneumococcal vaccine project to accelerate the development of new vaccines against pneumococcal disease that are effective and affordable for the developing world, which includes new pneumococcal conjugate vaccines (PCVs) specifically targeted to meet needs in low-resource countries. It further complements preclinical research already underway through a public-private partnership between PATH and the Centre for Biologics Evaluation and Research at the US Food and Drug Administration to improve the efficiency of a conjugation process for PCVs.
“Glythera is proud to partner with PATH,” says Anthony Baxter, Chairman of Glythera. “We look forward to working together to support the preclinical development of new technologies to produce vaccines that will make a real difference to people throughout the world.”
