Description

NasoVAX contains replication-deficient adenovirus vectors in suspension. It is a vaccine administered through a nasal spray that expresses influenza hemagglutinin in nasal epithelial cells1. Created by Altimmune, Inc., NasoVAX is currently being developed for seasonal and pandemic use as it can activate humoral and cellular immune responses. The compound has already shown to be tolerated with no adverse effects or fever in healthy individuals with a nearly 6-fold cellular immune response in comparison to an injectable vaccine1. As of June 2020, NasoVAX is being evaluated in a Phase 2 clinical trial for safety and effectivness in preventing worsening symptoms in hospitalized COVID-19 patients (NCT04442230).
