AstraZeneca Says Its Antibody Combination Treatment For Covid 'Evusheld' Approved In EU

AstraZeneca PLC (AZN.L) on Tuesday said its long-acting antibody combination treatment for Covid-19, Evusheld has ben approved in the European Union for individuals aged 12 years and more.

The approval was based on results from the TACKLE Phase 3 study of Evusheld, a combination of tixagevimab and cilgavimab. Results from the study showed that one dose of Evusheld provided clinically and statistically significant protection against progression to severe COVID-19 or death in non-hospitalised adults with mild-to-moderate COVID-19 who were symptomatic for seven days or less, compared to placebo.

Meanwhile, Evusheld was granted marketing authorisation in the EU for pre-exposure prophylaxis of COVID-19 in adults and adolescents earlier this year, and is already available in majority of countries in Europe.
