Our patented and proprietary platform for the production of linear DNA empowers rapid development and large-scale production that we believe will yield a safe and effective vaccine with fewer risks than other DNA production platforms. To date, Applied DNA and Takis Biotech have designed 5 preclinical vaccine candidates.

Applied DNA/Takis received approval from Italy’s Ministry of Health to begin a preclinical trial of one of their COVID-19 vaccine candidates.
