Inovio's Zika vaccine evokes robust response in human study

Dec 21 (Reuters) - Inovio Pharmaceuticals Inc said its experimental Zika vaccine induced robust immune responses in an early-stage study in human volunteers who have not been infected with the virus.

Forty volunteers - inclusive of both low- and high-dose groups - demonstrated Zika-specific immune responses after one or two vaccinations.

There were no significant safety concerns after 14 weeks from the initiation of dosing, the company said.
