M2 PHARMA-May 27, 2020-MilliporeSigma Collaborates with Baylor College of Medicine to Develop COVID-19 Vaccine Candidates


MilliporeSigma and Baylor College of Medicine have extended their collaboration to focus on process development and improvements to advance vaccine manufacturing to fight COVID-19, the company said.

MilliporeSigma, along with researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and the Texas Children's Hospital Center for Vaccine Development, is optimising the production process to advance two Covid-19 vaccine candidates.

MilliporeSigma will help to accelerate their suitability for large-scale manufacturing. This collaboration will focus on improvements to production efficiency, yield, robustness, scalability and costs.

The MilliporeSigma-Baylor teams will improve the manufacturing platform for the CoV RBD219-N1 vaccine candidate, which was originally developed to target SARS in 2011-2016.

Additionally, they will develop a new manufacturing platform for a second Covid-19 vaccine candidate to shorten the time to enter into Phase 1 clinical trials.
