CoVPN Trial: Novavax’s Traditional COVID-19 Vaccine Correlates to Strong Antibody Response, Protection Against SARS-CoV-2

A new analysis of the Novavax PREVENT-19 clinical trial concluded that this recombinant protein vaccine produced an antibody response comparable to mRNA vaccines and, if authorized, could help bolster global vaccine supplies. This is the first study to directly support antibody correlates of protection for a recombinant protein COVID-19 vaccine.

Data and safety review board reports how it monitored the COVID-19 vaccine trials

Evaluation of three vaccine candidates during the COVID-19 pandemic fell to 12 experts of the federally appointed COVID-19 Vaccine Data and Safety Monitoring Board. This team has now taken the unusual step of publishing details of their review process in The Journal of Infectious Diseases.
