Intravacc, a Netherlands-based company that deals with translational research and development of preventive and therapeutic vaccines, announced on Wednesday that that it has received a contract from the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to develop a prophylactic intranasal vaccine against Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG).

The deal includes base and options that are likely to total USD14.6m.
