Item 8.01. Other Events.
Due to delays caused by manufacturing, disruptions relating to suppliers, and those caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Companyhas adjusted the estimated timeline previously reported in its public filings with respect to the development of its vaccine candidates, BWV-102 and BWV-302 to account for additional time needed to optimize vaccine platform approach and perform sufficient preclinical studies. An updated summary of the Company’s pipeline for all vaccine candidates is provided as follows:
The FDA regulatory approval process is lengthy and time-consuming, and we may experience significant delays in the clinical development and regulatory approval of our vaccine candidates. Our vaccine candidates are in early stages of development and may fail in development or suffer delays that materially and adversely affect their commercial viability. We may be unable to complete development of or commercialize our vaccine candidates or experience significant delays in doing so due to regulatory or other uncertainties.
Additional details regarding the Company and its vaccine candidates are available in the Company’s updated corporate presentation, which is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1.
