Johnson & Johnson could turn from backward to winner in the race for global vaccine production from COVID-19

13.08.2020 News

Johnson & Johnson was one of the first companies to devote large resources to the fight against COVID-19 and vaccine development, and was one of the first to receive support from the US government.

However, J&J is not currently one of the companies, who conducting clinical trials of its final vaccine candidates COVID-19 in humans. Among others, the leaders are now companies such as Pfizer and BioNTech, Moderna.

However, J&J is the world’s largest medical company with a huge resource, and its candidate for the COVID-19 vaccine, according to current data, has more privileges that can make it the biggest winner of all.

Johnson & Johnson may offer only one dose for strong immunity

J&J published on July 30 the results of a preclinical study of the leading candidate for the vaccine “Ad26.COV2-S”, on primates, they showed the formation of strong immune responses from the viral growths of high levels of neutralizing antibodies, which can be infected with coronavirus.

Particularly optimistic is that a strong immune suppressor primates took after a single dose of vaccine. although the company plans to include both single and double dosing in their planned studies in humans, chances are that it can confirm the effectiveness of a single injection of the vaccine. Potentially it may be cheaper and acceptable for government vaccination programs.

In addition to more potential priority of a single-dose approach, J&J also intends to charge a much lower fee for the vaccine than its main competitors.

Last week, J&J signed a deal with the US government to supply 100 million doses of Ad26.COV2-S for about $ 1 billion. By comparison, Pfizer and BioNTech will ship 100 million doses to the United States almost twice as expensive – $ 1.9 billion.

Lower prices with fewer doses may seem like an unwise strategy, however, experts are asking investors not to “write off J&J from the accounts” because, according to epidemiologists, COVID-19 can still “live” on our land for a long time. There is a high probability that vaccination against COVID-19 may be the same procedure as the traditional annual vaccination against influenza.

In the current environment, while continuing pandemic, J & J, probably will sell it at cost. A disposable, inexpensive vaccine from a world-renowned company can be very attractive to governments around the world. This can create good publicity for the vaccine and the potential for sales at a higher price later when added to the traditional annual vaccination calendar.

Investors will learn more about Johnson & Johnson’s Ad26.COV2-S vaccine in September, when the company moves to a later stage of the study.
