Bavarian Nordic has agreed to partner with Evaxion Biotech to develop a vaccine against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). The pair will set out to create a vaccine based on Bavarian Nordic's MVA-BN vaccine platform and will utilize Evaxion's computer-based tech to discover novel antigens. According to a release, Evaxion has demonstrated "promising" preclinical results, and the MVA-BN-based candidate will be tested in further preclinical models; human testing could begin in 2019. The Technical University of Denmark will assist in the preclinical testing. More from FierceBiotechIT
