EU agency recommends 2 swine flu vaccines

The European Medicines Agency has recommended two swine flu vaccines be licensed in Europe.

In a statement today, the agency recommends the vaccines made by Novartis AG and GlaxoSmithKline PLC be granted a marketing authorization. The European Medicines Agency issues recommendations for licenses for medicines across Europe, and their decisions are generally accepted by the European Commission and individual countries.

Despite early data showing that one dose of both swine flu vaccines might be effective in adults, the European Medicines Agency is recommending a two-dose regimen for adults.

Authorities expect further data from ongoing studies and said these recommendations might be updated later.
