Reig Jofre contributes its know-how in the development of biological vaccines to the innovative consortium of Vaxdyn

  • Vaxdyn’s project to develop a new multi-antigen vaccine against serious bacterial infections, including pneumonia, is in early stages, and is funded by CARB-X, global biopharmaceutical accelerator to combat antibiotic resistance
  • Reig Jofre along with the National Center of Microbiology of the Spanish Institute of Health Carlos III are part of the consortium led by the biotech Vaxdyn
  • An estimated 700,000 people die each year from drug-resistant bacterial infections, and the death toll is expected to rise unless new preventatives and treatments are found
