CRV 101 Shingles Vaccine

Description

CRV-101 is a next-generation shingles vaccine candidate designed to maximize the CMI protection by combining the gE protein antigen with our proprietary adjuvant

An effective VZV vaccine requires potent induction of VZV-specific cell-mediated immunity(CMI) since reduced CMI to VZV has been associated with increased risks of  developing shingles

CMI: powerful means of immune protection against virus infection is mediated by T cells in the body.

This is called Cell-Mediated Immune (CMI) responses through triggering antigen-specific T cells that eliminate infected cells in the system. 

Indication

CRV 101 is indicated to prevent shingles in adults age 50 and older
