Coronavirus Update: Moderna’s Variant-Targeting Vaccine Moves Into Trial, J&J Looks Set For US Authorization
A round up of COVID-19 developments, also including news on the EMA beginning a rolling review of Celltrion's antibody therapy, and progress for Novavax and Moderna in Japan.
CanSino's COVID-19 vaccine is on the cusp of a formal approval in China, as is another candidate from state-owned Sinopharm. Meanwhile, China is shipping millions of doses around the world.
Efficacy against moderate to severe/critical COVID-19 was 66%-67%, well above the FDA’s stated 50% efficacy threshold for an EUA but far short of the 94%+ efficacy rates posted by the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines against symptomatic disease; agency says efficacy against specific variants cannot be evaluated at this time because sequencing data are incomplete.
More than 5% of participants in J&J’s vaccine trial chose to be unblinded because they were eligible to receive a vaccine that had already gained a US FDA emergency use authorization.
