Pfizer Inc. (NYSE:PFE): Current price $28.33
Pfizer announced Thursday the finalization of pneumonia case accrual in the Community-Acquired Pneumonia Immunization Trial in Adults, or CAPiTA, 65 years of age and older. CAPiTA, the largest trial of its kind, was created to determine whether Prevenar 13 is effective in preventing community-acquired pneumonia caused by the 13 pneumococcal serotypes included in the vaccine.
It is an event-driven clinical study, meaning that a pre-specified number of community-acquired, vaccine-type pneumococcal pneumonia cases must occur among study participants before the results can be determined. It should take a number of months to complete case processing, which will be performed by Julius Clinical, a spin-off of the Julius Center for Health Sciences and Primary Care, a division of the University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands where the study is being conducted.
