The vaccines save lives by preventing diseases in both human and animals, e.g., polio, smallpox, measles, tetanus and rabies. Live attenuated vaccines are generated by disabling the virulent properties of viruses so that a broad immune response can be generated e.g., Yellow fever, measles, mumps and rubella etc. The potential of any vaccine strategy can only be proven by establishing safety, potency and consistent manufacturing processes. The present state of art relies primarily on animal testing to study neurovirulence, immunogenicity and viscerotropism as per current regulatory guidelines (WHO Annex 5, 2013). Stemnovate was awarded NC3Rs grant for implementation of 3Rs (Replacement,Reduction and Refinement). The grant challenge was sponsored by Sanofi for developing a model system for Yellow fever vaccination studies.
