This so-called immunogenic carrier molecule comes solely from the rare keyhole limpet, and Stellar has technology for the maintenance of the animal, the non-lethal extraction of the critical molecule and a profitable refinement process of KLH.
Scientists have believed that Buchnera bacteria live peacefully within aphids, because they have evolved to be non-immunogenic, meaning they have lost the ability to trigger an immune response in any host.
"Recent findings suggest that, due to its anti-tumor immunomodulatory activities, NOV-002 may be particularly well-suited for combination with certain 'immunogenic' chemotherapy agents including cyclophosphamide and doxorubicin which are commonly used to treat breast cancer and are part of the treatment regimen used in this trial."
It is now understood, however, that some chemotherapeutic agents referred to as "immunogenic" may enhance the antitumor effects of immunotherapy by acting directly on the tumor and host environment.
So we will know after these clinical trials whether one or two doses are needed and this will also give confirmation that the formulation that the manufacturers are using are indeed immunogenic and are likely to induce protection again the pandemic virus.

These adverse events often included anaphylactoid reactions (23 percent) and serum sickness (50 percent) .1 Although most adverse events did not result in mortality when treated with appropriate medication, such complications are problematic and fueled the development of a less immunogenic antivenin.
Number of immunogenic proteins or sugars (polysaccharides) contained in vaccines over the past 100 years
The fragments of deteriorating PUFA combine with proteins and other cell materials, producing immunogenic substances.
“Sequencing the whole genome has revealed that the bacterium can actively degrade human skin tissue because of the massive presence of these enzymes, and also that there are specific immunogenic proteins which are present in this bacterium which trigger the immune response,” Brüggemann told New Scientist ....
