Clinical-stage biotechnology company Novavax, Inc. (NASDAQ: NVAX) today announced that data from the second of two phase II trials of its RSV F protein recombinant nanoparticle vaccine candidate in women of childbearing age have been published in the journal Vaccine. This specific information was previously shared at scientific conferences, and top line results from this trial were originally announced in April 2014. “The Western Blot finding from this trial, which demonstrates a reduction in recent RSV infections of approximately 52% in the vaccine relative to the placebo arms, is consistent with the Western Blot data we reported from a comparable trial and population in September of 2015,” Gregory Glenn, M.D., president, research and development of Novavax, stated in the news release. “Together, these data suggest that the RSV F Vaccine provided protection against RSV infection in controlled trials of over 1,000 women.” The company’s share price recorded an increase of nearly nine percent in morning trade following the news, with its PPS sitting at $1.11 just after noon.
