CureVac’s COVID-19 Vaccine Study Will Advance to Phase 2b/3
CureVac announced that it has enrolled the first participant in the pivotal phase 2b/3 study of its messenger-RNA based coronavirus vaccine, CVnCoV.
The randomized trial of the two-dose vaccine is expected to enroll more than 35,000 participants aged 18 and up at sites throughout Europe and Latin America. Participants will also be monitored in a yearlong study following the trial’s conclusion that will collect additional data to help assess the vaccine’s duration of effectiveness.
The company announced phase 1 trial results in November that demonstrated the vaccine elicited immune responses and was well-tolerated with no adverse events observed.
