Redbiotec and the research group of Dr. Sallie Permar, MD PhD, Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Duke University School of Medicine, announce a collaboration to study the contribution of complex antigens to protective immunity against Cytomegalovirus (CMV). The goal of the study is to gain insights into the correlates of protection.

Redbiotec will provide proprietary CMV antigens to be tested in sera from a target patient population to identify immune responses that are important to be targeted by a CMV vaccine to protect against infant virus transmission. The studies with Dr. Permar as well as with Prof. Britt, announced in June this year, are part of Redbiotec’s track towards clinical validation of proprietary CMV vaccine candidates.
