Moderna Adds Herpes Vaccine Candidate to Pipeline

Moderna is entering the global race for a Herpes vaccine. Moderna is an American pharmaceutical and biotechnology company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts that focuses on RNA therapeutics, primarily mRNA vaccines.  They are best known for recent success with their mRNA-based COVID-19 vaccine.

From Moderna website: Moderna’s herpes simplex virus (HSV) vaccine candidate (mRNA-1608) is a vaccine candidate against HSV-2 disease. Moderna expects that an HSV-2 vaccine could provide cross-protection against HSV-1. With mRNA-1608, the Company aims to induce strong antibody response with neutralizing and effector functionality combined with cell-mediated immunity. There is no vaccine approved against HSV.
