Sanofi pulls the plug on Zika vaccine project

In a press release issued on its website on Septmeber 1st Sanofi Pasteur announced they will no longer be continuing with their Zika vaccine project.

The announcement comes after the company was informed by the The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) that, after an assessment of all Zika-related projects they are funding they have decided to focus on a more limited set of goals and deliverables. As a result of the review Sanofi Pasteur was notified of BARDA's decision to “de-scope” its contract with Sanofi Pasteur to fund the manufacture and clinical development of an inactivated Zika vaccine and will limit its funding.

Consequently, Sanofi does not intend to continue development of, or seek a license from, the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research for the Zika vaccine candidate at this time.
