Bavarian Nordic discontinues RSV programme



Bavarian Nordic A/S has discontinued its respiratory syncytial virus vaccine programme for adults 60 years and older after a Phase 3 study failed to show efficacy against lower-respiratory tract disease caused by the virus. The trial enrolled more than 20,000 adults who were randomised 1:1 to receive either a single dose of the vaccine, MVA-BN RSV, or a placebo.
