Novavax announced the submission of a request for emergency use authorization to Taiwan’s Food and Drug Administration for its COVID-19 vaccine, NVX-CoV2373, for active immunization against SARS-CoV-2 in individuals aged 18 and over.


The submission includes data from two pivotal Phase III clinical trials: PREVENT-19, which enrolled approximately 30,000 participants aged 18 years and older in the U.S. and Mexico and was published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) (previously cited); and a UK-based trial with almost 15,000 adult participants, also published in NEJM. In both trials, the vaccine demonstrated efficacy with a reassuring safety profile.
