About Profectus BioSciences
Profectus BioSciences is a clinical stage vaccine development company focused on developing new vaccines for infectious disease and cancer prevention and treatment. The Profectus vaccine is based primarily on the company’s proprietary VesiculoVax™ and DNA vaccine technology platform. By simply using the VesiculoVax™ vaccine alone, B cells can be rapidly expanded to provide protection against emerging infectious diseases that threaten public health and biodefense mechanisms, such as Ebola, Marburg, Chikungunya, Zika virus, equine encephalitis virus, and respiratory syncytial virus. When VesiculoVax™ is used as a vaccine when the immune system is launched with the best pDNA vaccine, the Vesiculo Vax™-directed vaccine expands the triggered T cells into effector cells, which are ideal for attacking virus-infected cells and cancer. Current projects using the Prime / Boost Vaccine System (PBS Vax™) strategy include hepatitis B virus (HBV), human papillomavirus (HPV), herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) and human immunodeficiency virus ( HIV). Partners and collaborators include UTMB’s Galveston National Laboratory, Yale University, University of Maryland Human Virology Institute, HIV/AIDS Vaccine Immunology Center, National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health AIDS Division, Bill And the Melinda Gates Foundation, the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, the AIDS Vaccine Trial Network and the AIDS Clinical Trial Group.
