AmVac - Tomorrow's Vaccines today
AmVac AG is a biopharmaceutical company developing and marketing innovative vaccines. The life-science company was founded in 2005, is headquartered in Zug, Switzerland and has research laboratories in Germany and Italy, and a manufacturing operation in Hungary. Based on exclusive licenses from leading German scientific institutes of the Helmholtz- and Max-Planck societies and own acquired IP, AmVac has developed an innovative portfolio of seven vaccine candidates and three platform technologies - Lactobacillus, Sendai and Malp. The most advanced product of AmVac is Gynevac, based on the Lactobacillus platform. Previously already approved for selected indications in certain geographies, the product is currently being developed for the treatment of certain highly prevalent urogenital diseases on a broad international level. With its particularly favourable safety profile, Gynevac could, for the first time, offer an effective treatment or prevention of non-malignant prostate enlargement and inflammation, bacterial inflammation and infection with trichomonads, virtually free of side effects. Lastly, AmVac is currently directing a part of its research program to a promising Ebola vaccine in its pipeline. 2I2
