Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics Announces Poster Presentation at IDWeek 2019


Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics an innovative molecular tool, assay and vaccine development company focused on serving unmet critical needs in both developed and developing nations, will present scientific data at IDWeek 2019, which will be held in Washington, D.C. on October 2-6.

Updated pre-clinical data will be presented on Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics' leading candidates for a universal influenza vaccine. The patented configuration combines multiple conserved regions on the influenza virus. Data will be presented demonstrating strong activity against influenza strains across both group 1 and 2. This approach builds on vaccine candidates that have recently entered the clinical stage that cross strains within groups but not across group. Clara Sei, Director of Microbiology & Immunology Laboratory Longhorn Vaccines & Diagnostics, will present the poster. Further details will be available on the date of presentation.
