PlasProtecT® whole parasite malaria vaccine
PlasProtecT® is a chemically attenuated, whole parasite, blood stage malaria vaccine candidate.
Unique selling point/competitive advantage
PlasProtecT® has a demonstrated ability to elicit cross-strain and cross-species protective immune response in rodent models. It has also been demonstrated to be immunogeneic in first-in-man clinical studies.
As a whole parasite malaria vaccine, PlasProtecT® has the potential to address the lack of cross-strain protection associated with sub-unit vaccines. A human challenge model has also been developed at Griffith University.
Investment or collaboration opportunities

Intellectual property rights
Patent application under Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) has been filed.
