Following review, FDA lifts J&J COVID-19 vaccine pause
Johnson & Johnson's COVID-19 vaccinations are set to resume in the U.S. following a decision by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Read More
Naturally occurring molecule helps SARS-CoV-2 evade neutralizing antibodies
Researchers have identified naturally occurring molecules that are created from the breakdown of hemoglobin and block the binding of a subset of human antibodies to SARS-CoV-2. The discovery, published in Science Advances on April 22, may help explain why some COVID-19 patients can become severely ill despite having high levels of antibodies against the virus. Read More
Inovio will not conduct phase III COVID-19 vaccine trial in U.S.
Inovio announced it is planning for a phase III trial outside of the U.S. for its INO-4800 COVID-19 vaccine candidate after the U.S. Department of Defense discontinued funding for the candidate. Read More
Cell-free technique could enable on-demand vaccine production
A new cell-free synthetic biology technique that increases the volume of membrane components in the manufacture of conjugate vaccines can significantly improve the efficiency of vaccine production, according to a new method published in Nature Communications on April 22. The technology could enable on-site production of vaccines and therapies, enabling them to be more efficiently distributed in areas where they are most needed. Read More
