Novavax Ready to Produce Nearly 3 Billion Coronavirus Vaccine Doses (With a Little Help From Friends)
Novavax (NASDAQ: NVAX) has only completed the first phase of clinical trials for its coronavirus vaccine, NVX-CoV2373, but the relatively small biotech has already lined up at least 2.75 billion in manufacturing capacity through partnerships and an acquisition. Despite not having any drugs on the market, the biotech was able to secure the capacity through about $2 billion in funding from the U.S. government and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. The deal with Takeda to sell NVX-CoV2373 in Japan entitles Novavax to undisclosed development and commercial-milestone payments as well as a portion of proceeds from the vaccine sold by Takeda.

"We had exhausted all therapies," Dr. Hugh Cassiere, the director of critical care services at Sandra Atlas Bass Heart Hospital at North Shore University, told ABC News. Doctors say when patients are critically ill, and require mechanical ventilation, the elevated metabolism can break down the muscles used in breathing, leading to difficulty in patients coming off invasive ventilation.
