EU’s Regulator Expected To Reveal ‘Opinion’ On Merck’s COVID Pill ‘Within Weeks’

By John F. Heerdink, Jr.

Reportedly, the European Union’s drug regulator has started reviewing U.S. drugmaker Merck & Co Inc’s (MRK) experimental COVID-19 antiviral pill for adults following an application and is expected to issue an opinion “within weeks.” In October, the European Medicines Agency has already evaluated a substantial portion of the data during a rolling review.

Merck’s Covid-19 pill Lagevrio reduces the chances of dying or being hospitalized for those most at risk of developing severe COVID-19 when administered early in the illness. The pill was developed with Ridgeback Biotherapeutics and was approved in Britain earlier this month.

(MRK) is a global healthcare solutions provider that has been working towards bringing forward medicine and vaccines for some of the world’s most challenging diseases for more than a century.
