Approval Alert: AstraZeneca/Sanofi’s Beyfortus® (nirsevimab) to Prevent RSV LRTD Approved by NMPA

Jan 2, 2024

AstraZeneca and Sanofi announced that Beyfortus® (nirsevimab) has been approved by the National Medical Products Administration (NMPA) in China for the prevention of respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) in neonates and infants entering or during their first RSV season.  The companies anticipate Beyfortus® will be available during the upcoming 2024-2025 RSV season.  Beyfortus® is the first approved preventive option to protect against RSV in a broad infant population.

The FDA approved Beyfortus® for the same indication and to treat children up to two years old who are vulnerable to severe RSV disease through their second RSV season on 17 July 2023.
