Moderna Japan Aims for Combined COVID-19 and Flu Vaccine, Domestic Production Base

Moderna Japan, the local subsidiary of U.S. drug giant Moderna Inc., is gearing up for clinical trials of a combined mRNA vaccine against COVID-19 and influenza this winter. If successful, the vaccine could be available in Japan within a few years.

The company is also working on establishing a domestic vaccine production base in Kanagawa Prefecture, following the government's initiative to strengthen Japan's vaccine supply system. This base will not only manufacture vaccines for COVID-19 and influenza but also for other respiratory diseases.

Moderna Japan's president, Kazumasa Nagayama, emphasizes the importance of a single-shot vaccine for multiple viruses, making it easier and more cost-effective for people to get vaccinated. He also highlights the need for domestic production to ensure a stable vaccine supply and preparedness for future pandemics.

Beyond COVID-19 and influenza, Moderna is collaborating with Merck & Co. to develop an mRNA-based cancer vaccine for preventing tumor recurrence in malignant melanoma patients. This vaccine, currently in final clinical trials in Japan, has shown promising results in reducing the risk of recurrence or death by 44% compared to standard treatment alone.

Nagayama believes that personalized mRNA vaccines hold great potential for alleviating patients' concerns about cancer recurrence. With its focus on innovative mRNA technology, Moderna Japan is committed to improving public health and offering new treatment options for various diseases.
