“PLACCINE is demonstrating the potential to be a powerful platform that provides for rapid design capability for targeting two or more different variants of a single virus in one vaccine,” said Dr.
PLACCINE is the company’s first-in-class nucleic-acid vaccine platform used to design its next-generation vaccine technology against multiple antigens. PLACCINE was derived from the Company’s TheraPlas platform and was designed to develop vaccines against infectious diseases that are administered by intramuscular (IM) injection. The platform allows for straightforward adoption of the vaccines to additional applications such as cancer vaccines. PLACCINE demonstrates Celsion’s deep scientific know-how and extensive expertise in the design of novel delivery formulations as well as novel DNA constructs.
