Patent
Crucell | Date: 2015-03-31

Provided is a vaccine against respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), comprising a recombinant human adenovirus of serotype


Described are binding molecules, such as human monoclonal antibodies, that bind to hemagglutinin of influenza B viruses, and have a broad neutralizing activity against such influenza viruses. These binding molecules do not bind to hemagglutinin of influenza A viruses. Further provided are nucleic acid molecules encoding the binding molecules, and compositions comprising the binding molecules. The binding molecules can be used in the diagnosis of, prophylaxis against, and/or treatment of influenza B virus infections.


Described are binding molecules such as human monoclonal antibodies that bind to influenza virus H5N1 and have neutralizing activity against influenza virus H5N1. Also described are polynucleotides encoding the antibodies, and compositions comprising the antibodies and methods of identifying or producing the antibodies. The antibodies can be used in the diagnosis, prophylaxis, and/or treatment of an influenza virus H5N1 infection. In certain embodiments, the antibodies provide cross-subtype protection in vivo, such that infections with H5, H2, H6, H9, and H1-based influenza subtypes can be prevented and/or treated.

Compositions, vaccines and methods for inducing protective immunity against Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) infection are described. Heterologous vaccine combinations of one or more viral expression vectors and an isolated antigenic polypeptide induced strong protective immunity against infections by one or multiple clades of HIV.


Described are binding molecules, such as human monoclonal antibodies, that bind to an epitope in the stem region of hemagglutinin of influenza A viruses of phylogenetic group 1 and group 2, as well as influenza B viruses, and have a broad neutralizing activity against such influenza viruses. Provided are nucleic acid molecules encoding the binding molecules, their sequences, and compositions comprising the binding molecules. The binding molecules can be used, for example, in the diagnosis, prophylaxis, and/or treatment of influenza A viruses of phylogenetic groups 1 and 2, as well as influenza B viruses.
