Posts shared online claim that vaccinated passengers testing positive for the COVID-19 virus on a cruise ship is an indication that COVID-19 vaccines do not work. Passengers testing positive on a cruise ship that requested they be vaccinated is not proof that the vaccines do not work. In comparison, the COVID-19 vaccines appear to be more effective than the seasonal influenza vaccine, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention data here . Fully vaccinated passengers testing positive for the COVID-19 virus on a cruise ship is not proof that the vaccines do not work. COVID-19 vaccines significantly reduce the risk for contracting the virus as well as the risk for severe illness and hospitalization.

University Vaccine Mandates Violate Medical Ethics
  + stars: | 2021-06-14 | by ( Aaron Kheriaty | Gerard V. Bradley | ) + 0.00   time to read: +3 min
Schools have for decades required vaccination against infectious diseases, but these mandates are unprecedented—and unethical. Never before have colleges insisted that students or employees receive an experimental vaccine as a condition of attendance or employment. Even soldiers, whose rights are constrained when they join the service, aren’t being compelled to take a Covid vaccine. The FDA has issued such authorizations for three Covid vaccines, but it hasn’t fully approved any of them. Colleges’ vaccine mandates also ignore the huge number of students—thousands of them at Notre Dame—who have already recovered from Covid infection, and who thus possess natural immunity, which studies have suggested is more robust and durable than vaccine immunity.

REUTERS/Andrew Kelly/File Photo(Reuters) -Avenue Therapeutics Inc said on Monday the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) declined to approve its intravenous formulation of non-opioid painkiller tramadol for a second time, sending its shares tumbling about 38%. The FDA has been pushing drugmakers to develop alternatives to opioid-based painkillers, as the United States grapples with the menace of opioid addiction. The health regulator in October declined to approve the intravenous formulation of the painkiller, stating it was not safe for the intended population. H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis, however, says that IV tramadol could still have a path forward. Tramadol was approved in the United States in 1995 as a non-controlled analgesic, under the trade name of Ultram, to be sold by drugmaker Johnson & Johnson.

The health regulator in October declined to approve the intravenous formulation of the painkiller, stating it was not safe for the intended population. The agency said on Monday the delayed and unpredictable onset of analgesia - relief from pain - with intravenous (IV) tramadol did not support its benefit as a monotherapy to treat patients with acute pain. H.C. Wainwright analyst Joseph Pantginis, however, says that IV tramadol could still have a path forward.

The Maryland-based biotech company Novavax reported Monday that its experimental Covid-19 vaccine is safe and 100 percent effective against moderate to severe disease. The company has already completed a Phase 3 trial in the U.K., but the U.S. trial results are required to apply for emergency use authorization in this country. The Novavax vaccine is given in two doses, 21 days apart. The Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines all work by providing genetic instructions for the body to build the coronavirus's spike protein, which the immune system learns to recognize and fight. The Novavax vaccine can be stored in standard refrigerator temperatures.

Despite the study results, Novavax said it needs much of that time to ensure that its manufacturing processes meet regulatory standards. Novavax started its late-stage, or Phase 3, trial of the Covid-19 vaccine in late December. Novavax said that the vaccine was 93.2% effective combined against the variants of concern and variants of interest in the study. One challenge conducting the study, Novavax said, was the availability of authorized vaccines. In all, about 5,000 people dropped out of the study, Novavax said, meaning the Covid-19 cases that were used to determine efficacy occurred among the remaining 25,000 study subjects, Dr. Glenn said.

Additionally, the two-dose vaccine was found to be 100% effective in preventing moderate and severe disease and 93% effective against some variants, Novavax said. The new data comes as federal officials say the U.S. has more than enough doses of Covid vaccines to finish vaccinating the entire American population. It's possible the U.S. could end up donating doses of the Novavax vaccine. Novavax said Monday it remains on track to reach manufacturing capacity of 100 million doses per month by the end of the third quarter and 150 million doses per month by the fourth quarter of 2021.

Biotech Rally Sparked by Alzheimer’s Drug Has Staying Power

The Food and Drug Administration gave the green light to Biogen ’s drug Aduhelm on Monday. Eli Lilly , which has a similar Alzheimer’s drug under development, rallied 10% on Monday. Alzheimer’s has been a particularly confounding corner of drug research for decades; a 2018 analysis found that 146 experimental drugs had failed in clinical trials over the past 20 years. The FDA’s decision to approve Aduhelm despite significant concerns over its efficacy changes the outlook for those research efforts. Even the perception of a more forgiving regulatory agency is enough to spark fresh enthusiasm for biotech, and not only for companies with an Alzheimer’s program.

In this article LLYBIIBAduhelm by Biogen Source: BiogenThe FDA's approval of Biogen's Alzheimer's drug Aduhelm was a landmark moment in the life of Dr. Paul Aisen. One immediate challenge facing other teams working on a wider Alzheimer's drug pipeline, he said in a recent video call, would be to retain participants in ongoing trials, let alone attract new ones. "In most cases," he explained, many Alzheimer's sufferers will drop out of other drug studies to pursue treatment with the newly approved Aduhelm. The controversy surrounding the Biogen drug, including its potential cost, comes against a landscape of massive, unmet need for dementia treatment and a disease that costs the U.S. as much as $259 billion annually. That is why some dementia drug experts are focusing on the renewed attention and fresh financing rather than the potential negatives from the Biogen approval, according to Dr. Jeffrey Cummings, a neurologist at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, who publishes an annual review of the Alzheimer's drug development pipeline.

The Food and Drug Administration has told Johnson & Johnson to discard about 60 million doses of its Covid-19 vaccine that were produced at a troubled plant in Baltimore, according to two people familiar with the matter. But the FDA plans to allow Johnson & Johnson to distribute 10 million doses that were manufactured at the same facility, according to the two people familiar with the decision. The FDA’s decision to tell Johnson & Johnson to dump the vaccines was first reported by the New York Times. Following the inspection, the agency required Johnson & Johnson to take full control of the facility. Friday’s action followed a move earlier in the week by the FDA to extend the shelf life of Johnson & Johnson doses from three months to four and a half months.

Vaccination rates for children 12 to 17 have surged in the Northeast and lagged in the South, one month since the first Covid-19 vaccines were cleared for ages 12 and up, according to an NBC News analysis. And in Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, more than 40 percent of 12- to 17-year-olds have received one shot. Just over 7 percent of Mississippi 12- to 17-year-olds have received their first dose, and less than 10 percent of that age group in Louisiana. In the Midwest, teenage Covid-19 vaccination rates for the first dose hover around 25 percent. NBC News calculated teenage vaccination rates by subtracting first dose vaccinations for adults 18 and up from those 12 and up.

WASHINGTON—The Food and Drug Administration is expected as early as Friday to clear for export 10 million doses of Johnson & Johnson ’s Covid-19 vaccine from a Baltimore factory that had been beset by contamination problems, according to people familiar with the situation. However, the agency has notified J&J that approximately 60 million doses of vaccine substance were not satisfactory and can’t be used, according to one of the people, a senior U.S. official. That leaves potentially 60 million more J&J doses that could get approved still. The release of the 10 million doses is expected to be the first of several steps to approve vaccine that was produced at the Baltimore plant run by Emergent BioSolutions Inc. before manufacture was halted by the FDA over quality shortfalls. The Emergent plant made vaccine for J&J and for AstraZeneca PLC, before an April 30 FDA inspection report concluded that the facility didn’t take proper measures to avoid cross-contamination between the two companies’ vaccine lines.

For the first time in 18 years, the Food and Drug Administration approved a new medication for Alzheimer's on Monday. Partly because we've all been conditioned to see an Alzheimer's diagnosis as hopeless, so we avoid finding out until it critically hinders someone's ability to function. For instance, the new Alzheimer's drug, aducanumab, was tested on people with mild cognitive impairment or early stage dementia. Scientists are also increasingly referring to Alzheimer's disease as "Type 3 diabetes" because of its involvement with insulin resistance in the brain. How we depict Alzheimer's patients needs to change, too.

WASHINGTON—The Food and Drug Administration is making millions of Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine doses available for export from a Baltimore factory that had been beset by contamination problems. A review determined that two batches of vaccines produced at the Baltimore plant run by Emergent BioSolutions Inc. were suitable for use, the FDA said Friday. The two batches cleared for use will provide about 10 million doses, according to people familiar with the situation. About 60 million doses were rejected for potential contamination, one of these people said, confirming a report in the New York Times. With those rejections, there are about 120 million vaccine doses and unbottled substance made for J&J and AstraZeneca PLC at the Baltimore plant that could be cleared in coming weeks and be available for export, according to this person, a senior U.S. official.

US state and federal health officials told The Journal that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is banning states from ordering the J&J shot. The vaccine suspension comes after the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Thursday extended the shelf life of the J&J vaccine from three months to four-and-a-half months when refrigerated. States currently have excess doses of the J&J vaccine, and millions of the single-dose vaccines are set to expire in June.

Rare instances of heart inflammation in young people after receiving their second Covid vaccine dose require further inquiry, Dr. Scott Gottlieb told CNBC on Friday. Gottlieb said many questions remain about the connection between the heart inflammation and the Covid vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna. Gottlieb said what's not known yet is whether there's something specific about the vaccines that are causing heart inflammation. "Is this a more generalized inflammatory response from the vaccine that's localizing in the heart in some patients?" Roughly 141.5 million people in the U.S. have been fully vaccinated against Covid, according to CDC data.
