[내외경제TV] Reporter Choi Jae-ho = The stock price of FarmGen Science is rising.

At 2:56 p.m. on the 22nd, the share price of FarmGen Science is trading at 10,900 won, up 4.43% from the previous day.

Shares rose on the news that FarmGen Sciences had succeeded in developing a nano vaccine.

A research team led by Professor Na-gun of the Department of Biomedical and Chemical Engineering at Catholic University of Korea and Professor Choong-seong Lee of Sunmoon University announced that they had succeeded in developing a nano vaccine that controls the level of immune activation with light after inoculation into the nose.

Farmgen Sciences previously acquired NBR, which is headed by Professor Nagan of Catholic University.

The nanovaccine developed this time is expected to be applied not only to protection against influenza virus infection, but also to research on treatment for various diseases such as coronavirus and anticancer vaccines.

Various methods have been tried to directly inoculate the nose to prevent the influenza virus that causes many casualties every year, but there were safety issues such as difficulty in antigen delivery due to the mucous membrane in the nose or the use of a live virus.

Professor Nagan’s research team has developed a vaccine in the form of a nanocomposite using a polymer in which an antigen protein and a photoresponder are conjugated.

In particular, it has the advantage of being able to stay in the nasal cavity for a long time by improving tissue permeability with light.

As a result of animal experiments, administration of nano vaccine and exposure to light produced up to 8 times more immune cells than when antigen protein alone was administered, and the amount of antigen-specific antibodies increased by 80%.
