Vaccibody receives grant to develop VB10.16

Vaccibody has received a EUR 2 million grant from the Norwegian Research Council's BIA programme to develop a novel therapeutic vaccine against precancerous lesions of the cervix. The new vaccine, VB10.16, will be based on the company's Vaccibody DNA vaccine platform, which targets antigen-presenting cells. Combined with previous funding of EUR 875,000, this new grant will enable the company to take VB10.16 through to clinical trials in early 2014.
