VaxInnate is a privately-held biotechnology company developing novel, proprietary vaccines for both pandemic and seasonal influenza. The company?s breakthrough vaccines are based on its ?Toll-like Receptor? (TLR) technology platform, which dramatically improves vaccine immunogenicity and efficacy. Using the TLR technology, vaccines can be produced by simple, low-cost, highly-scalable recombinant DNA techniques, avoiding many of the challenges and pitfalls of egg-based or cell-culture influenza vaccine production. VaxInnate?s technology has the potential to significantly improve the cost-effectiveness, manufacturing capability, and potency of influenza vaccines ? key issues facing the clinical and public health communities.
