TAIZHOU, China, Nov. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — (the “Company”, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group”) on voluntary basis. The board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) is pleased to announce that in order to meet the rapidly growing market demand for HPV 9-valent vaccines in China and the international market, after process optimization, facility upgrading and verification, the peak production capacity for the first phase of the HPV vaccine manufacturing facility of the Company will be increased to an annual output of 20 million doses of recombinant HPV 9-valent vaccine. The construction of such manufacturing facility has received technical guidance from experts of the World Health Organization (“WHO”). Upon completion, the facility will meet the requirements of China’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and WHO prequalification (WHO PQ) to satisfy the global supply and demand gap of HPV 9-valent vaccines.
HPV 9-valent vaccines can prevent approximately 90% of cervical cancers and 90% of anal and genital warts, and are widely regarded as the most effective vaccines against HPV infections. At present, no domestic HPV 9-valent vaccine has been approved for sale in China. The Company’s core product, HPV 9-valent vaccine REC603, is in phase III clinical stage, with a prominent advantage in total sample size and an advanced overall research and development progress. REC603 adopts the H. polymorpha expression system to achieve high-yield and stable expression of HPV virus-like particles and to make the Company’s vaccine candidate more suitable for commercial production.
Founded in 2012, Jiangsu Recbio Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Recbio or the Company; stock code: 02179.HK) is an innovative vaccine company driven by self-developed technologies. We are dedicated to the R&D, production and commercialization of innovative vaccines, leveraging our core technology platforms (novel adjuvant, protein engineering, immunological evaluation). Staying true to the mission of “Protect human health with best-in-class vaccines”, the Company has established high-value pipelines consisting of several blockbuster vaccines with proprietary rights to satisfy the huge unmet demands in the markets of high-burden diseases.
Through years of devotion to the vaccine industry, Recbio has developed three advanced innovative technology platforms, namely novel adjuvant, protein engineering and immunological evaluation platforms, and become one of the few companies in the world capable of developing novel adjuvant systems. We develop promising vaccine candidates constantly, taking advantage of the synergy between the novel adjuvant platform, optimized antigen designs, and immunological evaluation technologies. Recbio never ceases to optimize its technology platforms, and strives to achieve breakthroughs in mRNA vaccines using a joint venture model.
With robust R&D capacity, the Company has developed high-value innovative vaccine portfolios consisting of ten-odd differentiated vaccines, covering cervical cancer, shingles, COVID-19, TB and other high-burden diseases. Our core product REC603, a recombinant 9-valent HPV vaccine in Phase III clinical trial, shows great promise of becoming the first marketed domestic 9-valent HPV vaccine. Apart from that, ReCOV, a recombinant COVID-19 vaccine with its commercialization in the offing, has been recognized as one of the most competitive next-generation COVID-19 vaccines in the world. Recbio has a clear commercialization strategy aiming to penetrate the diversified global vaccine market.
Honed and refined for ten years, Recbio is going to reap the rewards as several products are approaching commercialization.
