Biological/Research Material for H1N1 Influenza Virus Vaccine Research
Posted Oct 11 2009 5:00pm
Description of Invention: Offered for licensing is a recombinant attenuated vaccinia virus, MVA, that expresses the haemagglutinin (HA) and nucleoprotein (NP) of influenza virus A/PR/8/34 (H1N1). The virus has been shown to stimulate protective immunity to influenza virus in mice.
The materials can be used for research purposes and in particular in the area of influenza virus vaccines.
The related publications listed below demonstrate the usefulness of this biological material in influenza virus vaccine research.
Applications: Research reagents useful in research and development in the area of H1N1 Influenza virus vaccines.
Development Status: Fully developed. The usefulness of the materials has been shown in Dr. Moss' laboratory.
