El proyecto Cervipro avanza con un encuentro en Heildelberg

El proyecto destinado al desarrollo de una vacuna costo-efectiva contra el cáncer cervical, denominado Cervipro, sigue avanzando tras el encuentro celebrado la pasada semana entre  Elena de la Torre, Project Manager de Bionaturis, y los representantes del Instituto de Investigación German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) y la empresa BioEnergy GmbH & Consultant (líderes del consorcio).

El encuentro, celebrado en la sede del centro investigador en Heildelberg (Alemania), sirvió para hacer un seguimiento de las aportaciones y acciones de cada uno de los integrantes, así como para marcar los próximos hitos en el desarrollo. Además de la representante del Grupo Bionaturis –Elena de la Torre-, los asistentes a este encuentro fueron Michael Götz (por parte de BioEnergy GmbH & Consultant), Martin Müller y Caroline Odenwald (de DKFZ).

Bionaturis Group takes part in the development of a vaccine against cervical cancer

The Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI, in Spanish) has granted an incentive of 184.847,40 Euros to the company from the European Programme Eurostars
The project is led by the German company BioEnergy GmbH & Consultant with participation from the German Cancer Research Center

Jerez de la Frontera, January 12nd 2016. Bionaturis Group will take part in the development of a cost-effective and possibly oral vaccine against cervical cancer. The initiative, led by the German company BioEnergy GmbH & Consultant with the participation of the German Cancer Research Center, receives funding from the Eurostars-2 Programme with co-funding from CDTI and the Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 Framework Programme from European Union.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), developing countries suffer the highest impact from cervical cancer, which is caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). Currently available vaccines are at a price point that makes them unaffordable for most people in developing countries. In addition to the loss of human lives, this circumstance leaves a large gap in the global coverage against the disease. With this project, Bionaturis Group is taking part in an alternative strategy to produce a cost-effective vaccine that will be affordable for the most highly impacted regions, following its vision of ‘A Global Access To Health’.

“This project is a real and relevant challenge for Bionaturis because, with it, we are expanding our horizons. Our acquired technological expertise in both vaccine development and cost effective manufacturing platforms lets us face this initiative with the realistic goal of providing to the population at risk a first-in-class drug that will be affordable given the social and economic conditions of their countries”, Bionaturis CSO, Juan Jose Infante, has stated.

The WHO highlights that cervical cancer caused the […]
