Executive Summary

Juvaris BioTherapeutics Inc.'s technology is an offshoot of gene therapy work originally conducted at Valentis. Researchers there discovered that their DNA/lipid delivery combination elicited a mild immune response at the lowest dose. Juvaris has used the technology to develop two classes of products: JuvImmune is made up of the DNA/lipid combination without an antigen and is intended to boost the immune response. Combined with vaccines, where it boosts the intensity of the immune response, the technology is called JuvaVax.
