Intervacc is a Swedish company which develops vaccines against infectious bacteria, focused on the animal health care market. According to Intervacc’s management, the technology platform can be used to develop vaccines for any bacterial species, in principle. The company’s subsidiary, Nordvacc, distributes veterinary vaccines across the Nordic and Baltic regions, as well as in the Netherlands. Intervacc has been listed on Nasdaq First North since 2017.
The company has a strong scientific foundation underlying its revolutionary bacterial vaccine development platform. The opportunity to entry into the veterinary market, with Intervacc’s lead product Strangvac, represents a comparatively low-risk commercialisation strategy.
Regulators could demand additional data before approving the company’s lead product. Potential distribution partners may not sell Intervacc’s products as zealously as the company itself would. Competitive, regulatory, and intellectual property rights risks are significant, as with all biotech companies.
