Pipeline Faster, better viral
vaccines and therapeutics.

Our pipeline produces vaccine and viral therapeutic candidates capable of rapidly and specifically responding to our most pressing global health threats.

Infectious
Disease

Our platform makes trial-and-error vaccine development a thing of the past.
Codagenix designs and develops several vaccine candidates in tandem, enabling us to go from genetic sequence of the wild-type virus to viable candidate vaccine or therapeutic in weeks—and faster, if needed, as new outbreak strains are identified.

SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)
CoviLivTM
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted countless lives and caused millions of deaths worldwide.

Our intranasal vaccine candidate CoviLiv is a live-attenuated vaccine, safely enabling a broad antibody and T-cell response. It can be stored in a regular refrigerator, making it likely one of a few vaccine candidates able to achieve the manufacturing scale and access needed to mount a global vaccination effort.
RSV CodaVaxTM – RSV
Adult
Pediatric
Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a leading cause of hospitalization due to acute lower respiratory infection, particularly in infants, young children and elderly adults.

Overcoming long-standing hurdles, our RSV candidate is genetically stable, induces a meaningful T cell response and is efficacious against wild type challenge in primates. A phase 1 clinical trial reached its primary endpoint, demonstrating both safety and an anti-RSV cellular immune response.
Influenza
Universal influenza CodaVaxTM – H1N1
Influenza carries a year-round disease burden and can cause severe illness or death, particularly among high-risk populations. The current major vaccines are focused on an antibody response to the highly variable HA protein of influenza.

Codagenix has utilized our design platform to construct a live-attenuated, universal flu vaccine, CodaVax™-H1N1. The vaccine enables presentation of conserved antigens of the wild-type virus, demonstrating universal potential in primate models and thus the potential to provide multi-season protection when developed into its final quadrivalent formulation.
Yellow Fever
Yellow fever is a viral disease transmitted to humans through bites of infected mosquitoes. The current vaccine is in short or absent supply and relies on antiquated egg-based production. With the habitat of the mosquito vectors expanding into previously temperate latitudes, this disease represents a growing threat to global health.

We have synthesized the vaccine strain and are testing it in vivo to support candidate selection, ultimately aiming for a clinical program utilizing an FDA-accepted surrogate endpoint for registration to allow for accelerated clinical development.
Dengue
CDX-DENV
Dengue is a mosquito-borne viral infection that is common in warm, tropical climates. Globally, approximately 2.5 billion people live in dengue-endemic regions. Vaccine development has been challenging as protection against all four dengue virus serotypes is required to avoiding antibody-mediated enhancement of disease. Additionally, current dengue vaccines in development are designed using traditional vectored or serial passage approaches of the historical dengue strain.

Codagenix has leveraged our platform to re-design contemporary strains of dengue and demonstrate a balanced tetravalent vaccine that is safe and immunogenic in primates.
Zika
CDX-ZiKV
Zika virus is primarily transmitted by the bite of an infected mosquito, and can also be transmitted through other contacts, including from mother to fetus during pregnancy. This transmission is associated with microencephaly in infants. To date, a total of 86 countries and territories have reported evidence of mosquito-transmitted Zika infection.

Codagenix has leveraged our platform to re-design the Zika vaccine and demonstrate a product that is safe and immunogenic in primates.

Cancer
Virotherapeutics

Shifting the long-standing trajectory of cancer immunotherapies.
Our influenza-based virotherapeutic candidate is the first codon-modified attenuated virus developed to treat cancer.

Breast Cancer
CodaLyticTM
Breast cancer is one of the leading contributors to cancer-related death worldwide, but remains difficult to target with existing immunotherapies due in part to heterogeneity between breast cancer subtypes and unfavorable tumor microenvironments. Particularly in later stage metastatic settings, there is great unmet need for novel therapy regimens to improve patient outcomes.

Our lead candidate is designed to modulate the tumor microenvironment in multiple ways, leading to reliable anti-tumor efficacy in immune-competent mouse models of breast cancer and triggering several immune effector mechanisms. IND-enabling studies are ongoing.
Solid Tumors
CDX-Onc
A variety of solid tumors can benefit from treatment with immunostimulatory viruses, broadening and deepening the patient population benefiting from established immunotherapies. We are actively discovering novel virotherapeutics by leveraging our platform to construct target-specific therapies, focusing on immunologically cold tumors.

Animal Health

The next generation of healthy animals.
Animals are fundamental to the health of people through companionship, high quality nutrition and the control of zoonotic diseases. Codagenix vaccines for agriculture and companion animals will strengthen our food chain, make pets healthier and lower our global reliance on antibiotics.
