What is a vaccine and why do we need it?
In the current situation we constantly hear about vaccines.
But what is a vaccine? And what does it do? Our colleague, Doctor Rinke Bos explains
Where are we on the COVID-19 vaccine?
We have determined a lead vaccine candidate and are now working around the clock. We foresee to start clinical trials in September. Want to know what it is like to work on a vaccine?
How does a vaccine protect us from a virus? And what’s the difference with our immune system?
Vaccines allows the immune system to develop protection against certain illnesses by exposing the body to antigens. Vaccination is one of the most successful public health interventions. Vaccines cause minor symptoms, but still trigger the immune system to respond.
Our expertise on fighting pandemics
We are leveraging Janssen's proven AdVac® and PER.C6® technologies, which provide the ability to rapidly upscale production.
These are the same technologies that were used in the development and manufacturing of Janssen’s investigational Ebola vaccine, which is currently deployed in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Rwanda, and were also used to construct the Company’s Zika, RSV and HIV vaccine candidates.
