EU begins review of Bavarian Nordic’s vaccine for monkeypox


The European UnionThe Food and Drug Administration said on Tuesday that it had begun a review to expand the use of the Bavarian Nordic smallpox vaccine to prevent monkeypox.
Danish biotech’s Imvanex vaccine is approved for smallpox in Europe, but has been offered for off-label use to treat cases of monkeypox.
More than 3,400 cases of monkeypox have been confirmed and one death has been reported World Health Organization until last week, with the majority of them coming from Europe.
Bavarian Nordic has been vaccinated against both smallpox and monkeypox in USAwhere it’s called Jynneos.
The EU’s decision to initiate a review is based on results from laboratory studies showing that the vaccine triggers the production of antibodies that target monkeypox virus, European Health Agency speak.
The regulator also recommended importing vaccines from the United States to supplement tight supplies in Europe as infection rates rise across the bloc.
