Heat Biologics, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical, is developing first-in-class therapies to modulate the immune system, including multiple oncology product candidates and a novel COVID-19 vaccine.


Thursday’s presentation follows some promising preclinical results from a study of a potential vaccine based on its already-developed gp96 platform.


A study found that Heat’s vaccine candidate “significantly increases the frequency of systemic and tissue-specific CD8+ T-cells by conferring cellular immunity that’s essential against any viral infection, including SARS-CoV-2”, the virus that causes the COVID disease.


It elicits a robust immune response directed against the Spike protein of SARS-CoV-2.


“We believe that these results are a powerful reinforcement that this platform represents a unique and relevant paradigm for novel vaccine development, capable of inducing cellular immune responses in epithelial tissues such as the lungs,” said Jeff Wolf chief executive.


The other companies on Thursday’s roster include AIM ImmunoTech Inc, Avalon GloboCare Corp (NASDAQ:AVCO), Oregenisis Inc (NASDAQ:ORGS), ImmunoPrecise Antibodies Ltd (CVE:IPA, OTCQB:IPATF).
