Respiratory Syncytial Virus Vaccines Based on G Protein Subunit

The invention pertains to cross-neutralizing vaccines against human respiratory syncytial virus subtypes A and B employing immunogenic G protein subunit and fragments thereof that are preferably derived from the ectodomain. Various candidate G protein subunits are provided spanning amino acid sequence 67-298 of RSV G protein and combinations thereof. Also envisioned within the scope of this invention are tandem repeated recombinant G protein subunit vaccines that provide higher immunogenicity. Recombinant G protein can be codon optimized for expression in various hosts (e.g., mammalian cells or E. coli).

Potential Commercial Applications:

  • Vaccine
  • Childhood vaccine

Competitive Advantages:

  • Cross neutralizing
