From Bench to Clinic: Development of the 3M-052-Alum Vaccine Adjuvant Formulation

Christopher Fox

Christopher Fox

VP of Formulations at the Infectious Disease Research Institute

Abstract: For nearly a century, aluminum salts have been the most widely used vaccine adjuvant formulation, with an established history of safety and efficacy. Nevertheless, for extremely challenging disease targets such as tuberculosis or HIV, the adjuvant activity of aluminum salts is not adequate to achieve protective efficacy. This presentation will describe a formulation approach to solving this challenge by developing a lipid-based nanosuspension of a synthetic TLR7/8 ligand (3M-052), that facilitates adsorption to aluminum oxyhydroxide (Alum) via the structural properties of the lipid excipient employed.
