05:32 EDTNVSNovartis Bexsero vaccine receives FDA Breakthrough Therapy designation
Novartis announced that Bexsero, Meningococcal Group B Vaccine, has received a Breakthrough Therapy designation from the FDA. Bexsero is already approved in Europe, Canada and Australia to help protect against invasive meningococcal disease caused by serogroup B. Novartis plans to file for U.S. licensure of Bexsero as early as Q2; exact timing will depend on guidance from the FDA. This is the fourth Breakthrough Therapy designation for Novartis, underscoring leadership in developing innovative therapies and vaccines. This announcement comes on the heels of a landmark decision from regulators in the UK, where the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation recommended the inclusion of Bexsero in the country's National Immunisation Programme for routine use in infants from two months of age.

08:07 EDTMRKMerck, Ferring announce collaboration with WHO
Merck and Ferring Pharmaceuticals announced their collaboration with the World Health Organization to advance a new, proprietary formulation of carbetocin, used to prevent excessive bleeding in women after childbirth, that is designed to be stable at room temperature, even in hot and tropical climates. Currently, oxytocin, the standard medicine administered for the prevention of excessive bleeding, is temperature-sensitive and requires sustained cold distribution and storage in hot climates. The WHO will conduct a multi-country clinical study to evaluate the effectiveness of room-temperature-stable carbetocin, as compared to oxytocin. The development of a medicine that can be stored at room temperature has the potential to significantly improve management of bleeding following childbirth in the many areas of the world where cold storage is difficult to achieve and maintain, and thereby help reduce maternal deaths in those areas. Starting this year, the study will take place in 12 countries around the world and enroll approximately 29,000 women. If the results of the study are positive, the organizations will work together with the aim of making the medicine available in developing countries that have a high burden of maternal mortality at an affordable and sustainable public-sector price.
