16 février 2024

Osivax, a biopharmaceutical company developing vaccines to provide broad-spectrum protection against highly mutating infectious viruses, today announced that the first participant has been vaccinated in its new Phase 1 trial (NCT06128382) evaluating OVX033, a broad-spectrum sarbecovirus vaccine candidate. 

Recently, preclinical data published in Frontiers in Immunology demonstrated OVX033’s proof of cross-protection against three SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern. In a rabbit toxicology study, the vaccine candidate also showed an excellent safety and tolerance profile after intramuscular administration. The first-in-human study will be conducted at the Clinical Investigation Center in Vaccinology Cochin Pasteur (CIC) in Cochin Hospital in Paris (AP-HP, Inserm) under the supervision of Odile Launay, MD, PhD, Professor at Paris Cité University.
