As -- flu epidemic continues to hit the US the FDA has approved a new kind of flu vaccine that has not made using eggs.
We're in influenza virus like other vaccines are.
So what benefits and when can we get -- hands on it joining us now on the no Cox protein sciences CEO well prompt thank you for coming nine.
You've had this flu shot yourself thanks for having would -- enforce.
-- haven't had to -- -- count myself because like all other entries in our company we are hoping.
And were hoping to get -- block approved said each year and we have -- 150000.
Doses and there waiting to be released back and it's been -- to us and some of us have really yearly waiting to get that what -- what are you expecting what's the timeframe here.
A couple of weeks -- -- -- -- it was filled already in November and is now waiting to have to stick us with on imprisoned boxes.
-- we were talking before we came on you've thought it was strange that I didn't know that that these vaccines could be made without preservatives.
I think you know -- you may be so in the business that you did not.
But a lot of folks don't realize that you can make a vaccine and yours is one.
Without a preservative how does that work.
Yeah I think below one of the most important advances in our technologies that we are basically using a stare out production process so unlike using a -- -- -- chicken eggs.
Are in deep in the beginning of production process bacteria present that may need to be contained with preservatives or antibiotics we don't need to do look at why doesn't everybody usually visit the cost why doesn't everybody do with that sounds like it makes more sense it is true that preservatives are mostly used to be able to sell multi dose vials and unfortunately a lot of people believe that vaccines have to be available for free -- has always been an enormous price pressure on vaccines and the multi dose vials containing ten those -- -- one of island -- for you don't have the production cost of that file of those.
Single those filed for our product will -- -- a single those found nothing contain any of those.
Additives like and embryonic or.
Preservatives and one of those if you can -- the film is.
I mean we're talking about everybody is so scared of the flu this year and some people are opponents of getting a flu -- say they're worried it'll make them sick what he -- -- -- you know in principle 30% of the US population deep belief that you can get the -- from the -- shop and I don't know what's creating a fairy tale because in principle the virus is an activated in the majority of the vaccines there -- -- life attenuated -- But that is weakened so much that you also cannot really got to -- from a but still there are side effects on our calls by for example and -- -- instead might be present in these vaccines that core of I have flu like illness well.
It it there is -- concern another concern about taking these vaccines which is that it lowers.
The body's own ability to build up defense is to diseases journey truth to that.
I don't believe dependency case because in principle and you give the pro -- to the body to but you'll see that as and we need to defend ourselves and we need to make antibodies.
It might indeed be true if -- -- many many years continued vaccination that you will have somewhat you know our ability to respond with but that we have shown in studies -- specifically in the old or individuals is that they're still better off to take the vaccine because.
It will -- and help their immune systems.
Many older people are nervous about that they really are approaching science is working on scuba -- also working on a couple of other drugs and mainly considering going public.
We certainly hope to go public at some point and tendons in the near future and we are very peace at this -- finally got to prove because we call -- the plug and play technology.
You can you've decided to Ali Tenet called kind of out of I think that.
Very interest -- that no timeframe on when you Michael public though.
Not we are and it some of our corporate investor -- and really realize an enormous increase in markets kept during the past couple of days because some markets respond with extremely mountains in Japan for you amendment in.
Sweden for a partner that I -- it.
But we don't have really planned yet we -- just talking thank you for coming in dark -- very serious -- cards protein sciences CEO thanks again.
