San Diego, CA – May 26, 2009 – VGXI Inc., a leading manufacturer of DNA plasmids and creator of AIRMIXTM Technology, announced today that the company will present at the 2009 American Society of Gene Therapy 12th Annual Meeting at the San Diego Convention Center. The American Society of Gene Therapy (ASGT) is a non-profit medical, scientific, and professional organization devoted to the research and development of therapies that involve the introduction of genetic material and/or cells into the body to treat or prevent disease. Henry Hebel, COO, will present at the ASGT 12th Annual Meeting and was quoted as saying, “The recent H1N1 outbreak illustrates the need to develop innovative vaccine technology capable of producing strain specific vaccines within a matter of weeks, rather than months. VGXI Inc. is routinely manufacturing multi-component strain specific vaccines for our clients at large scale and is capable of producing several hundred thousand doses per week, if required.” VGXI Inc. will present the science behind the formulation and stability of high concentration, multi-component plasmid products. Multi-component DNA vaccines are increasing in demand in the advancing market which, consequently, poses challenges in production, formulation, stability and release testing. Extremely pure product is required to achieve high concentrations and is critical for accurate vaccine blending. This presentation will focus on the special considerations that must be made when developing this new class of products.
