Published
  • The proprietary AI-Immunology™ platform brings the potential for a new era in vaccine discovery, design and development using advanced AI and machine learning technologies
  • AI-Immunology™ outcompetes standard vaccine target discovery approaches and holds the promise of addressing serious unmet needs
  • With a unique modular architecture, AI-Immunology™ is scalable and adaptable towards partner needs
  • The potential of AI-Immunology™ is validated by established partnerships, including an ongoing vaccine collaboration with MSD

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, March 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Evaxion Biotech A/S (NASDAQ: EVAX) ("Evaxion" or the "Company"), a clinical-stage TechBio company specializing in developing AI-Immunology™ powered vaccines, today hosts a Research & Development (R&D) Day focusing on its core AI-Immunology™ platform. The event will be hosted at our facilities in Hørsholm, Denmark, between 14.00 – 18.00 CET / 9.00 a.m. - 1.00 p.m. EST and can be accessed remotely here.

The R&D Day features a series of talks providing in-depth insights into Evaxion's clinically validated AI-Immunology™ platform for vaccine target discovery, design and development. AI-Immunology™ consists of a collection of in-house developed AI building blocks that can be intelligently combined into AI prediction models to address complex healthcare issues related to the immune system. With the AI prediction models, PIONEER™, ObsERV™, EDEN™ and RAVEN™, we can identify clinically relevant vaccine targets within hours.

Christian Kanstrup, CEO of Evaxion, expresses enthusiasm: “We have been looking forward to this exciting day and welcome everyone interested in learning more about our technology and its potential for saving and improving lives. We believe that we hold a truly differentiated position driven by our validated AI-Immunology™ platform and the multi-disciplinary capability set we have built around it. The potential of AI-Immunology™ is evidenced by our strong pipeline of vaccine candidates and existing partnerships.”

The presentations during the day will, among other things, cover:

  • The innovative modular architecture of AI-Immunology™, where AI building blocks can be combined into AI prediction models, enhancing scalability
  • Insights into the novel AI-Immunology™ building block, EvaxMHC, which is used across the platform, significantly enhancing the predictive capabilities
  • The clinical validation of the predictive capabilities of the PIONEER™ model showing a statistically significant improvement in progression-free survival in metastatic melanoma patients
  • The novel tumor target sources, named Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs), showing high relevance in low tumor mutation burden cancers, allowing for potentially more effective personal cancer vaccines
  • The EDEN™ model outperforms reverse vaccinology finding novel targets in hours instead of years. The EDEN™ designed EVX-B2 vaccine candidate showing stronger protection than a vaccine candidate developed by GSK’s Gonorrhea
  • RAVEN™ introduces novel vaccine concepts to enhance the effectiveness of T-cell-based vaccines
  • The ObsERV™ model allows for a novel precision vaccine approach toward addressing cancers which cannot be targeted with standard immunotherapies

Following the R&D Day, a replay of the event presentations will be available on our website.
