(OCGN) said its partner, Bharat Biotech, posted positive results from a phase 2 analysis of the vaccine candidate, COVAXIN, in participants ages 12-64, receiving a booster dose six months following a second dose on the pre-print server, medRxiv. The analysis showed that participants receiving a booster dose saw a significant increase in neutralizing titers. Additional data found that more than 75 percent of all participants had a detectible neutralizing antibody response six months post their second dose of COVAXIN. The booster dose analysis also found no serious adverse events, the company noted.
