Saint-Herblain (France), June 3, 2022 – Valneva SE (Nasdaq: VALN; Euronext Paris: VLA), a specialty vaccine company, today announced that its senior management will present and participate in 1-on-1 meetings with institutional investors at the Jefferies Healthcare Conference which will take place from June 8 to 10, 2022 in New York.
Valneva’s Chief Executive Officer Thomas Lingelbach and Chief Financial Officer Peter Bühler will notably discuss the Company’s late-stage vaccine candidates against Lyme disease (VLA15), chikungunya (VLA1553) and COVID-19 (VLA2001).
Valneva was recently granted Conditional Marketing Authorization in the United Kingdom for its inactivated COVID-19 vaccine candidate VLA2001 and filed a Marketing Authorization Application with the European Medicines in May 2022. The Company also recently commenced the pre-submission process with the US Food and Drug Administration for its single-shot chikungunya vaccine candidate VLA1553 after reporting final positive pivotal Phase 3 results and lot-to-lot data. Additionally, in April 2022, Valneva and its partner Pfizer reported first positive pediatric results for their Lyme disease vaccine candidate VLA15. These positive data build on the strong immunogenicity profile reported for adult participants (18-65 years old) in February 2022, and the two companies expect to proceed with a Phase 3 clinical trial in participants age 5-65, which is planned to start in the third quarter of 2022.
