Biological E of Hyderabad inked separate agreements with Janssen Pharma, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, as well as Baylor College for the production and manufacture of the COVID-19 vaccine using India as the base.

The agreement of Biological-E with Janssen is for enhancement of manufacturing capacity for J&J’s vaccine candidate AD.26COV2.S. This vaccine is currently in the midst of Phase 2 clinical trials. This is the last stage before human trials commence in Phase 3.

Biological E has also licensed the recombinant protein COVID-19 vaccine candidate which was developed by Baylor College. This is a yeast-based express technology and Baylor College has agreed to transfer the technology to Biological E.

The Hyderabad based Biological-E will undertake the mass manufacture and commercialization of the formula for general use. Clearly, the financial commitment of Biological-E will be much higher in the case of Baylor College.
