About BunyaVax: BunyaVax has developed a novel Plug & Play vaccine technology that can be used to develop inherently safe and efficacious vaccines within a timeframe of weeks. Especially during outbreaks of new and life-threatening viruses, rapid and affordable vaccination is essential. The Plug & Play feature allows the introduction of any desired gene into the RNA particle genome. Vaccination with BunyVax RNA particles was shown to induce durable protection against highly pathogenic viruses in both laboratory animals and target animals.
