In studies sponsored by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease (NIAID), Greffex’s GreFluVie vaccine proved to be highly effective in protecting animals against H5N1. Mice were immunized in a prime/boost schedule before being challenged with a lethal dose of the pandemic avian influenza virus. At the low dose of 3×108 genome equivalents, the vaccine proved to be highly effective when given by intramuscular, subcutaneous, and intranasal routes. Intramuscular injection resulted in a rate of survival of 100%.
