Novavax stock rallied as much as 21 percent in Wednesday trading after the company said it has successfully created a swine flu vaccine.
The company made the vaccine at its new manufacturing facility in Rockville using technology that significantly reduces the time it takes to make a vaccine. Novavax says it created the vaccine candidate just 11 weeks after getting the gene sequence for the N1H1 strain from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control.
