Bavarian Nordic leverer vacciner til Englands beredskab i forbindelse med nye tilfælde af abekopper11.6.2021 19:12:35 CEST | pressemeddelelse

KØBENHAVN, Danmark, 11. juni 2021 – Bavarian Nordic A/S (OMX: BAVA) meddelte i dag, at selskabet for nylig er blevet anmodet af de engelske sundhedsmyndigheder, Public Health England (PHE) og Medicines and Health Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), om at levere koppevaccinen IMVANEX® til vaccination i forbindelse med nye, udefrakommende tilfælde af abekopper i mennesker i England. To relaterede tilfælde er blevet bekræftet og er blevet indlagt på et hospital i Liverpool. Den ene er sandsynligvis blevet smittet i Afrika, hvorfra familien ankom et par dage inden sygdommen brød ud, mens den anden sandsynligvis er blevet smittet af det første tilfælde efter hjemkomsten. Abekopper er en sjælden, men alvorlig sygdom, der naturligt forekommer i det centrale og det vestlige Afrika. Sygdommen er beslægtet med den menneskelige koppesygdom, om end den er mindre alvorlig med en dødelighed, der er estimeret til at være fra 1-10% af tilfældene.
