Meissa’s Nasal COVID-19 Vaccine Uses Codon Deoptimization for Stronger Responses

Excerpt from the Article:

Meissa Vaccines’ intranasal live attenuated chimeric virus-based vaccine for SARS-CoV-2 (and its variants) recently was cleared for Phase I trials, which will start at the end of March. Unlike other live attenuated virus vaccines, it employs codon deoptimization to evoke a stronger-than-usual immune response.

If approved, it holds the potential of providing several years of immunity for COVID-19, thus greatly easing the administration and manufacturing burden for what seems likely to be an endemic disease.

The vaccine, known as MV-014-212, is based on the company’s respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) vaccine, which has Fast Track designation. That vaccine currently is in Phase II trials, where it appears well-tolerated in adults and in children as young as 15 months.
