Gottlieb hails Pfizer news as 'game-changer'

The former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Scott Gottlieb said on Wednesday that news of Pfizer's coronavirus vaccine final clinical trial results are a "game-changer" that could end the pandemic in the United States next year.

"Game change. This is a great day for patients as Pfizer (where I serve on the BoD) announces final top line results from the phase 3 trial with its Covid-19 vaccine. We should now have two vaccines that could effectively end the U.S. epidemic next year if everything goes right," Gottlieb shared on Twitter.

Pfizer announced earlier that the Phase 3 study of its COVID-19 vaccine co-developed with BioNTech "has met all primary efficacy endpoints."
