Development of our intranasal COVID-19 vaccine

About

ViraVac

ViraVac, a subsidiary of ViraCorp, is a spin-out company from the Lancaster University, UK, one of the top universities of the country. ViraVac is a clinical stage vaccine development company that uses innovative antigen stabilisation approaches in constructing live-attenuated recombinant vectored vaccines to offer solutions to the most pressing infectious diseases within humans.

The company’s proprietary vaccine platform enables us to deploy an easy-to-administer vaccine using intranasal and sustained-release microneedle devices.

The ViraVac vaccine platform is based on 15 years of research by world-renowned virologist, Dr Muhammad Munir. ViraVac has established collaboration and is backed by leading institutions and pharmaceuticals including Lancaster University, Incepta, Innoture, and Farvet, amongst others.

Innovative, non-invasive delivery methods — ViraVac is revolutionising vaccine delivery and expanding the scope for vaccine take-up worldwide.

Unique differentiators

What makes us different

Non-invasive delivery system

ViraVac vaccine vector is born for non-invasive delivery by virtue of the vaccine replication and its entry route.

Economical Production

ViraVac vaccines replicate in self-limited fashion, where only a small number of vaccine particles are needed to make a vaccine dose, and our vaccines are produced in well-established substrates recognised globally. These features make us unique in rapidly responding to emerging infectious threats and significantly reducing production costs.

Easier Distribution

The vectored vaccines are very stable from -20 ̊C to + 34 ̊C, making it much easier and cheaper to transport and store, and offering the perfect solution for developing countries and remote communities.

Low Healthcare Infrastructure Requirements

We have an established track record in intranasal and slow releasing patch technologies. Training to administer an intranasal and/or patch vaccine is quick and straightforward. Ideal for countries where trained healthcare professionals are scarce. Suitable alternative for people with needle anxiety and other medical conditions.

Safety of ViraVac Vaccine Platform

Protective efficacy and safety of the ViraVac vaccine platform have been demonstrated for decades against 12 different pathogens in several animal species, such as poultry (chicken, ducks, turkeys), rodents (mice and hamster), non-human primates (macaques), mammals (guinea pigs, cattle, sheep, pigs, ferrets), among others.
