NR-15892 is demonstration material of RypVax™, recombinant plague vaccine, containing recombinant F1 (rF1) and V (rV) antigens from Yersinia pestis produced in Escherichia coli. The purified antigens (240 µg/mL rF1 and 240 µg/mL rV) were adjuvanted with Alhydrogel. Antibodies to rF1 have been shown to be protective against bubonic plague while antibodies to rV have been shown to enhance protection against inhalation plague. This vaccine combined both antigens and was expected to protect against both forms of the disease. NR-15892 is provided through BEI Resources for research use only.

Each vial contains approximately 0.48 mL of purified recombinant antigen proteins (240 µg/mL rF1 and 240 µg /mL rV) adjuvanted with 0.26% w/w Alhydrogel.
