V590

Description

The V590 vaccine was developed on Merck’s recombinant vesicular stomatitis virus (rVSV) platform that was previously used to develop its Ebola Zaire virus vaccine, ERVEBO®1,2,3. By teaming up with IAVI, Merk developed a vaccine that does not require freezing, and only requires one dose4. Other features of this vaccine include potential activity with oral administration via a swish-and-swallow protocol4. Merck is currently underway to begin Phase I trials for the vaccine through intramuscular administration (NCT04569786).
