ACEPRD PRODUCTS

NAFDAC NO.:N/A

The problem caused by the acute shortage of anti-venom in Sub-Sahara Africa is the sole aim of our group to design, develop and produce for immunization of the farming population and the general Population at Risk.

To respond to this emergency health problem of snake envenomation that is evident in our rural communities (WHO, 2002), it becomes imperative for our group to design, develop and produce biologically active, cost effective, thermo-stable and easy to transport immunogens that will induce responses (humoral and cellular) to multiple conserved epitopes in venoms of different snake species from our vast bio-diversity.

The ACEPRD has developed a new anti-snake vaccine designated COVIP-PLUS, a polyvalent, thermo-stable vaccine that can maintain activity at temperature of 50 ◦C which excludes it from cold chain transportation. This will link the scientists, industry and government in enhancing the acquisition of scientific knowledge, skills, expertise and translating this into products, improving on the quality of life for the snake prone communities
