Allergy Therapeutics Publishes Encouraging New Data for Peanut Allergy Vaccine Candidate in collaboration with University of Bern

Wednesday, 29 January 2020

Positive preclinical data package demonstrates positive safety and efficacy profile reducing systemic and local allergic symptoms in a peanut allergy model. Manufacturing scale-up for clinical studies to evaluate allergy vaccination using VLP (virus like particle) technology underway.

Professor Martin F. Bachmann, study investigator from The University of Bern, Switzerland and The Jenner Institute, University of Oxford, UK, said: “The impact of peanut allergy on patients, their families and health systems is significant with prevalence on the rise. While work to develop peanut allergy immunotherapies has been the focus of researchers’ attention for some time, these potential immunotherapies often require repeated and long-lasting exposure transdermally or orally, which can limit patient adherence and have been associated with dangerous systemic allergic reactions. The availability of a safe and effective short-course vaccine that provides long-term protection and induces a long-lasting protective immune response remains the ultimate goal for researchers in this field. This study indicates a paradigm shift by addressing peanut allergy via a vaccination concept instead of classic desensitisation and provides a strong proof of concept for such a vaccine. The important next step will be to confirm the effects seen here in patient trials.”
