RADNOR, Pa., Jan. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- NRx Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: NRXP), a clinical-stage, biopharmaceutical company has received scientific evidence from the Israel Institute for Biological Research (IIBR) that the BriLife® vaccine may produce effective levels of neutralizing antibody against the Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.1 More importantly, many of the mutations (alterations) that cause the Omicron variant spike protein to differ from the spike protein of the original SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 have been identified in the spike protein of the BriLife vaccine.  This natural evolution of the BriLife vaccine suggests that the vaccine may continue to evolve to address future Variants of Concern (VOCs). Unlike the current mRNA vaccines and attenuated virus vaccines, the BriLife vaccine is a live, viral vector vaccine in which the spike protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has been added to a benign virus, called VSV.  A similar viral vector was used to create the successful, FDA-approved vaccine against Ebola virus.
