EMA could authorize NOVAVAX Covid-19 vaccine soon: Executive director

Amsterdam, Nov 30 (UNI/Sputnik) The European Medicines Agency (EMA) could authorize the new Covid-19 vaccine developed by NOVAVAX in a few weeks, the executive director of EMA, Emer Cooke, said on Tuesday.
"The vaccine from NOVAVAX could be authorized in a matter of weeks," Cooke said while addressing the EU parliament.
The NVX-CoV2373 protein subunit vaccine developed by NOVAVAX used components that makes it different from mRNA or viral vector vaccines. The NVX-CoV237 contains only a spike protein, made of moth cells, and adjuvant, made from tree bark. The vaccine does not contain the virus itself and spike proteins are harmless for people, meaning that it cannot cause the Covid-19 infection. As soon as an immune system encounters spike proteins, it starts producing antibodies, and adjuvant is used to boost a person's immune response, creating higher levels of antibodies.
