Oragenics Signs Process Development and Manufacturing Agreement With Avid Bioservices for Coronavirus Vaccine

UF startup and UF Innovate | Sid Martin Biotech graduate company Oragenics, Inc., and Avid Bioservices, Inc., announced that they have entered into a process development and drug substance manufacturing agreement. Under terms of the agreement, Avid will provide Oragenics with analytical method development, process development and drug substance manufacturing services to support the development of Oragenics’ novel SARS CoV-2 (COVID-19) spike protein vaccine candidate, Terra CoV-2.

“Avid specializes in recombinant protein production, a critical component in the development and potential commercialization of our lead coronavirus vaccine candidate, Terra CoV-2,” said Alan Joslyn, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Oragenics. “With Avid’s existing manufacturing infrastructure, which includes three 2000L single-use bioreactors and considerable space for expansion, they are the right manufacturing partner to scale-up to the significant levels of bulk vaccine substance that would be required to combat COVID-19, should our vaccine be approved by regulatory authorities.”
