路透社报导,诺瓦瓦克斯先前指出,NanoFlu/NVX-CoV2373的临床前研究显示,这支疫苗不仅对于A型和B型流感能引起很强的免疫反应,对COVID-19(2019冠状病毒疾病)的SARS-CoV-2病毒也能产生防护力。



“Combination of these two vaccines… may lead to greater efficiencies for the healthcare system and achieve high levels of protection against Covid-19 and influenza with a single regimen,” Novavax’s president of research and development Gregory Glenn said in a statement.

The firm has been touted as a leader in the race to safely and effectively combine flu and Covid-19 vaccines. Novavax said in May that it expects seasonal flu and Covid-19 combo vaccines to be vitally important in controlling the spread of the pandemic.
