Developing a single-dose, intranasal, live-attenuated vaccine against COVID-19
Codagenix is a clinical stage synthetic biology company that uses software to recode the genomes of viruses, constructing live-attenuated vaccines or viruses to prevent viral infections or treat solid tumors. Codagenix’s recoded vaccine candidates are a perfect antigenic match to the target virus and induce a robust immune response to all viral antigens. For cancer, our nimble platform allows us to turn a virus into a potential oncolytic immuno-oncology therapies. Both programs rely on scalable, low-cost manufacturing.
There are currently no licensed vaccines against COVID-19, and the pandemic continues to spread in the U.S. and around the world. CodaVax-COVID is a single-dose, intranasal, live-attenuated vaccine against COVID-19, generated using Codagenix’s proprietary deoptimization technology.
