Johnson and Johnson submit an application to the US FDA


Johnson and Johnson has submitted an application to the US FDA, who's seeking emergency use authorisation, for its investigational single-dose Janssen COVID-19 vaccine candidate. Based on topline efficiency and safety evidence from the Phase III ENSEMBLE clinical trial, the EUA submission shows that the investigational single-dose vaccine met both primary and secondary endpoints. Johnson and Johnson expect to have stock ready to distribute, following authorisation.
