Information on COVID-19

It was decided that we should utilize the plasmid DNA technology developed by our company as quickly as possible to respond the urgent global challenge of preventing the spread of COVID-19 and formulate effective solutions; accordingly, we announced "Joint Development of a DNA Vaccine to Combat the Covid-19" on March 5, 2020.
Relevant information, including the matters we have worked on since the announcement, and answers to the questions we have received are set out below.

[DNA vaccine for COVID-19]

The DNA vaccine against COVID-19 is a plasmid DNA vaccine encoding the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein that opens the door to infection. It is expected to prevent COVID-19 or the condition of COVID-19 patients from deteriorating. Since the vaccine is engineered to express only the spikes on the viral surface, thereby producing antibodies, it is nonpathogenic and safe.
