COVAXX Initiates Phase 1 Clinical Trial of COVID-19 Vaccine UB-612 in Taiwan

  • First Patients Safely Dosed with UB-612
  • Clinical Trial Currently Enrolling up to 60 Healthy Volunteers
  • Taiwan’s Ministry of Health and Wellness Approves Up to $15M (USD) Grant to Support Phase 1 and 2 of Human Trials
  • Clinical Trial Expands on Existing International Collaborations with Brazil and U.S.

HAUPPAUGE, NY and HSINCHU, TAIWAN (September 28th, 2020) –COVAXX announced today that the first patients were safely dosed in the company’s Phase 1, open-label, dose-escalation study of the UB-612 vaccine candidate for COVID-19 in Taiwan. The study is partly supported by a grant from the Ministry of Health and Welfare in Taiwan of up to 430M (NTD) or approximately $15M (USD). This clinical trial expands the international collaborations of COVAXX after the recently announced agreements with Dasa, the largest diagnostic medicine company in Brazil and Latin America, and with The University of Nebraska Medical Center to conduct large scale human efficacy clinical trials in Brazil and the United States, respectively.

“Administering the initial dose of our vaccine candidate to the first participants not only marks the start of this Phase 1 clinical trial but also represents a significant step forward in the global fight against COVID-19,” said Mei Mei Hu, co-Chief Executive Officer of COVAXX.

The Phase 1 open-label trial is designed to evaluate the safety, tolerability, and immunogenicity of UB-612, a multitope peptide-based vaccine candidate against COVID-19 based on a commercially proven platform that allows for the cost-effective production of vaccines at scale. The design of the vaccine components provides the additional advantage of utilizing existing cold-chain storage and distribution channels as it does not require additional infrastructure such as -80⁰C freezers or liquid nitrogen tanks to store materials at temperatures beyond -80⁰C

Peter H. Diamandis, PhD, calls himself a “data-driven optimist,” which is a necessary quality for an entrepreneur who relishes tackling grand challenges.

His XPRIZE Foundation has created $10-million incentive competitions focused on the life sciences and other areas, while his venture capital fund, BOLD Capital Partners, has invested $250 million in innovative or “exponential” technologies. His Abundance 360 summits have brought together entrepreneurs, executives, and investors to apply those technologies toward transforming their businesses. His Singularity University focuses on solving global problems through educational programs, partnerships, and a startup accelerator. Diamandis’ companies also specialize in cellular therapeutics (Celularity), personalized machine learning (Futureloop), and longevity health (Fountain Life and Human Longevity).

Another Diamandis company, United Neuroscience, combats animal and human diseases by discovering, developing, and commercializing vaccines and monoclonal antibody treatments. Earlier this year, United Biomedical created a subsidiary called COVAXX focused on tackling COVID-19 through a vaccine as well as through antibody diagnostics deployed in China, Taiwan, and several U.S. states. The company’s serology test is designed to complement RT-PCR testing by helping identify asymptomatic COVID-19 patients and those who were infected and have recovered.

COVAXX’s UB-612 program focuses on developing its Multitope Peptide-based Vaccine against SARS-CoV-2, constructed from a peptide-based platform first deployed by United Biomedical. The vaccine platform has been commercialized successfully in more than 500 million doses annually and 5 billion doses cumulatively in animal health indications for infectious disease.

聯生藥抗體新藥UB-421用於多重抗藥性愛滋病患3期臨床試驗獲中國NMPA核准執行

聯合生物製藥(股)公司(聯生藥)今日宣佈,其抗體新藥UB-421應用於治療多重抗藥性(multi-drug resistant (MDR)HIV感染病患之3期臨床試驗今日獲中國國家藥品監督管理局(National Medical Products Administration,NMPA)核准執行。這項研究是一個多國臨床試驗,包括台灣、中國等。相同的臨床試驗方案先前已獲台灣衛生福利部食品藥物管理署核准。

大多數HIV感染者可以通過聯合抗逆轉錄病毒療法(combined antiretroviral therapy,ART) 獲得良好治療效果,亦即可以將血中HIV RNA壓抑至檢測不到之水平;然而,一小部分患者會對多種藥物或多種類型的藥物產生抗藥性,臨床醫師已無法建構有效的ART方案藥物壓抑該群患者血中之HIV-RNA含量至無法檢測之水平。這群病患由於治療選擇非常有限,故處於容易產生HIV相關併發症和發展為愛滋病 (AIDS)的高風險。因此這群患者迫切需要一種相對安全、新類型藥物且無藥物相互作用或交叉耐藥性(cross-resistance)的新療法。

在這項3期臨床試驗中,將招募共50名對多種抗逆轉錄病毒藥物具有耐藥性,已經有高度治療歷史的 HIV感染患者。本臨床試驗方案是根據美國FDA指南設計,先於2週內評估主要藥效終點(HIV RNA含量降低至少0.5 log),然後在24週的維持期間(maintenance phase)評估次要藥效和安全終點。

United BioPharma Received IND Approval from China NMPA for a Phase 3 Trial with UB-421 in Patients with Multi-Drug Resistance (MDR) HIV-1 infection

Taipei, Taiwan –Aug. 21, 2020 –United BioPharma (UBP) announced today that they have received Investigational New Drug (IND) approval from the China National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) to conduct a Phase 3 clinical trial with UB-421, an anti-CD4 monoclonal antibody, in patients with multi-drug resistant (MDR) HIV-1 infection. The study is a multi-nation trial which will include Taiwan and China; the same protocol was approved earlier this year by TFDA.

A majority of people living with HIV can be successfully treated with combined antiretroviral therapy (ART); however, a subset of patients develop resistance to multi-drugs or multi-drug classes, and are unable to tolerate a regimen that could suppress HIV-RNA to undetectable levels. With very limited treatment options, these patients are at a higher risk of HIV-related complications and progression to AIDS. The MDR patients are in vital need of a new treatment that is relatively safe, and without drug-drug interactions or cross-resistance.

In this multi-nation Phase 3 trial, a total of 50 HIV-infected patients who are highly treatment- experienced with resistance to multi-classes of antiretroviral agents will be enrolled. The protocol is designed according to US FDA guidance to evaluate the primary efficacy endpoint (at least 0.5 log reduction of HIV RNA achieved) within 2 weeks, followed by a maintenance phase of 24-weeks to assess the secondary efficacy and safety endpoints. The dosing regimen of UB-421 is 25 mg/Kg bi-weekly via intravenous (iv) administration.

聯生藥抗體新藥UB-421皮下注射(SC)劑型 獲台灣衛福部核准進行臨床I期試驗

聯合生物製藥(股)公司(聯生藥)今日宣佈,台灣衛生福利部食品藥物管理署(TFDA)已核准其開發中抗體新藥UB-421之皮下注射(SC)劑型在HIV-1感染、但尚未接受任何藥物治療 (treatment naive)的患者上進行I 期臨床試驗。

本次臨床試驗是一項開放標示、多劑量、評估UB-421的安全性、藥物動力學和抗病毒活性的研究。受試者條件為先前未接受抗逆轉錄病毒藥物(Anti-Retroviral drugs)治療的HIV-1陽性、無症狀成年人,試驗方案為每週皮下注射UB-421持續4週,分三個不同劑量組(250 mg 、500 mg和700 mg),4週後再給予標準ART療法(Anti-Retroviral Therapy)。本次試驗預計招募18名受試者,每個劑量組有6名。

UB-421 的皮下注射劑型開發可提供一種比靜脈輸液(IV)途徑更方便的給藥方法,從而使患者可以在家中自行施打UB-421,進而改善患者的治療依從性。 UB-421 皮下注射劑型乃是由更高產量的細胞株生產,並製成冷凍乾燥形式。凍乾劑型UB-421在使用前以注射用水(Water For Injection)回溶後形成可皮下注射的藥劑。在前臨床動物實驗結果顯示,UB-421 皮下注射與靜脈輸注劑型對於中和HIV與抑制病毒載量具有相等的藥效。

WALKING IN THE FAVOR OF GOD — PART THREE

In a world that was sinful and wicked, what was it that set Noah apart?

As he concludes his series on “Walking in the Favor of God," Dr. Stanley uses both the story of Noah’s obedience to God and examples from his own life to help us discover how we can listen to, trust, and obey the Lord. When we make wise decisions that honor and bring glory to God, we’ll find His favor in our own lives.

Also this week: Courage For The Difficult Tasks

This sermon was recorded before COVID-19. For the protection of our staff members and the community, we are currently following safety guidelines by practicing social distancing. We appreciate your understanding.

李家同

在柏克萊念博士的時候,交到了一位美國好朋友,他叫約翰,我當時是單身漢,他已婚,太太非常和善,常找我到他家吃飯,我有請必到,變成他們家經常的座上客。

約翰夫婦都是學生,當然收入不多,可是家裡卻佈置得舒適極了,他們會買便宜貨,收集了不少的瓷娃娃,有吹喇叭的小男孩,有打傘的小女孩,也有小男孩在摸狗等等的娃娃,滿屋子都是這種擺設,窗臺上更是放了一大排。我每次到他們家,都會把玩這些瓷娃娃。

約翰告訴我他們的瓷娃娃都是從舊貨店和舊貨攤買來的,有一天,我發現一家舊貨店,也去買了一個瓷娃娃,是一個高高瘦瘦的少女,低著頭,一臉憂鬱的表情,等約翰夫婦再請我去的時候,我將他帶去,他們大為高興,告訴我這是西班牙Lladro娃娃,這家名牌公司的娃娃個個又高又瘦,也都帶著憂鬱的表情。他們一直想要有這麼一個娃娃,可是始終沒有看到,沒有想到,我買到了。

A FORMULA FOR COURAGE

God offers a solution to the very human struggle with fear, inadequacy, and discouragement during trying times. In this message, Dr. Stanley shows us the biblical formula for gaining a never-ending source of strength in God’s almighty presence. He is the one who empowers and equips us with the courage we need to face any circumstance. Learning to rely on Him and the wisdom from His Word will lead us to outcomes even greater than we can imagine.
