During its July 2021 meeting, the Pharmacovigilance Risk Assessment Committee (PRAC) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has concluded a safety signal of myocarditis (inflammation of the heart muscle) and pericarditis (inflammation of the membrane around the heart) with COVID-19 vaccines Comirnaty and Spikevax and has recommended that people who have previously had capillary leak syndrome must not be vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine Janssen.
The FAMHP reminds all sponsors they are obligated to publish the results of their clinical trials in the European Clinical Trials Database (EudraCT) within one year after the end of trial date (or six months for a paediatric trial). Publication on external sources or the transmission of reports to national competent authorities is not sufficient. The guideline applies retrospectively.
