Background

The UB-612 COVID-19 vaccine was developed by United Biomedical Inc Asia in Taipei as the first COVID-19 “multi-tope” protein-peptide vaccine made up of eight rationally designed components1. The vaccine incorporates a strong S1-RBD component linked to a single chain fragment region (sFC) of a human IgG1, which facilitates cell attachment and acts as the principal neutralizing domain of the virus2,3. In addition, the vaccine contains a proprietary peptide UBITh®1a for enhanced immunogenicity, five identified peptides with Th or CTL epitopes to improve peptide solubility, and aluminum phosphate adjuvant2. This vaccine was designed to induce a broad immune response. It was able to reduce viral load and prevent COVID-19 infection in a mouse challenge model and in rhesus macaques1,2. In rats, toxicity studies have so far shown favourable safety for this vaccine1,2, Phase 1 trial is currently ongoing in Taiwan (NCT04545749).
