Download as PDF 10500 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 47 / Friday, March 9, 2018 / Notices stem region of hemagglutinin protein into or around the c/e1 loop of the core protein. The nanoparticles formed by the use of Hepatitis B virus core proteins can be disassembled and reassembled, allowing mixing of antigens. Furthermore, the nanoparticles can be expressed in prokaryotic and eukaryotic expression systems. Thus, the platform provides a means for an optimal display of influenza epitopes for the induction of immune response including broadly neutralizing antibodies against the virus and therefore has the potential to be developed into an efficient universal vaccine against influenza virus infection. This technology is available for licensing for commercial development in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, as well as for further development and evaluation under a research collaboration. Potential Commercial Applications • Vaccine against viruses; vaccines against influenza virus; universal influenza virus vaccine Competitive Advantages • The nanoparticles may be disassembled and re-assembled allowing mixing of antigens • Expression in prokaryotic and eukaryotic systems • Avoids production and usage of live viruses for vaccine generation • Effective immune response due to the use of authentic viral antigens • Stability of particle and immunogenicity after high temperature exposure • Incorporation of epitopes from group 1 and group 2 influenza viruses • Broadly neutralizing antibodies against influenza virus Development Stage • Pre-clinical; in vivo data available (animal) Inventors: Audray K.
