Merck & Co – has announced that it is going to end development of its two vaccines and focus on treatments. The company will record a discontinuation charge in the fourth quarter for vaccine candidate V591, which it acquired with the purchase of Austrian vaccine maker Themis Bioscience, and V590, developed with non-profit research organisation IAVI. In early trials, both vaccines generated immune responses that were inferior to those seen in people who had recovered from Covid-19, as well as those reported for other Covid-19 vaccines.
