Latest From CureVac NV
From inactivated virus-based to mRNA platforms, the race is on in China to develop vaccines to fight the latest omicron variant, with substantial new funding pouring into one young mRNA company.
The menopause drug elinzanetant, which has just gone into Phase III, has joined Kerendia, Verquvo and Nubeqa as a candidate that Bayer believes has a peak sales potential of more than €1bn.
The UK major is delighted with the German biotech's decision to throw in the regulatory towel with CVnCoV and concentrate on the firms' collaboration to development a second-generation COVID-19 vaccine. However, GSK is insisting that the partners look at both modified as well as unmodified mRNA approaches, a significant change of strategy for CureVac.
The company behind the CVnCOV COVID-19 vaccine candidate says the decision to withdraw from regulatory review is strategic. The EMA says outstanding issues affecting the benefit-risk balance remained to be answered at the time of withdrawal.
