Bharat Biotech, Ocugen’s co-development partner, announced yesterday that they had been able to share positive interim results from the second analysis of their Phase 3 study of COVAXIN, a whole virion vaccine. In mild, moderate, and severe COVID-19 disease, COVAXIN demonstrated a vaccine efficacy of 78% while its efficacy against severe COVID-19 disease alone was 100%.

Based on efficacy data to date, COVAXIN can positively impact the course of this pandemic by preventing hospitalizations due to severe COVID-19 infections as well as significantly limiting the spread of asymptomatic COVID-19 infections. A subgroup of about 8,000 participants assigned to the clinical study for monthly RT-PCR tests demonstrated 70% efficacy against asymptomatic COVID-19 infection.
