Valneva is pushing forward with its live-attenuated, single-shot vaccine candidate, VLA1553, for chikungunya, a mosquito-borne viral disease for which there are no preventive vaccines or effective treatments available.
Valneva has reached a settlement with the UK government over an abandoned COVID-19 vaccine contract. Meanwhile, the future of its COVID-19 vaccine in the EU could become clearer next week after an EMA committee vote.
Vaccine company Valneva has announced positive Phase 3 pivotal results for its single-shot chikungunya vaccine. “We are a step closer to addressing this major, growing and unmet public health threat,” says the company.
Valneva has started a Phase 1/2 trial of its COVID-19 vaccine: eying up potential regulatory approval in the fourth quarter of 2021. It champions a ‘tried and tested’ approach with its inactivated candidate.
