Executive Summary

One of the challenges surrounding the development of new vaccines has been inducing a strong enough immune response to protect the recipient from future infections, or to eradicate existing infection. The founding scientists of Oxxon Pharmaccines found that a particular combination of immunizations, using different vectors to deliver the same antigen in a sequence dependent upon priming and timing, created a high T-cell response. The scientists filed a patent around their so-called {Prime-Boost} technology, which has potential in a whole range of diseases, including hepatitis B and melanoma.
