Intervacc AB enters into a commercial production phase with Strangvac®.

Intervacc has signed a Letter of Intent and an agreement on first mile stones with 3P Biopharmaceuticals in Pamplona, Spain, for contract manufacturing of Strangvac®, Intervacc´s recombinant vaccine against strangles. The collaboration between the Companies covers transfer of the manufacturing technology, production of validation batches and long term future commercial manufacturing.

“We are very pleased about this agreement, this is a significant step forward for Intervacc, which thereby enters into a new commercial production phase after successful completion of clinical trials and safety studies of Strangvac® says Jan-Ingmar Flock, CEO of Intervacc.

3P Biopharmaceuticals was recognised by Intervacc as one of only few Contract Manufacturing Organisations with a well documented technical skill, regulatory experience, facilities and track record on manufacturing of recombinant proteins as vaccine components.

Strangvac® is Intervacc´s vaccine against strangles, caused by Streptococcus equi in the horse. Strangles is a very contagious and severe infection leading to significant suffering and economic loss for the global horse industry. There is a huge need for a safe and efficacious vaccine against strangles as evidenced by all current reported outbreaks from the markets.
