Risks and uncertainties include, among other things, research and development uncertainties, including the ability to meet expected clinical criteria, start and/or completion dates of clinical trials, time frames for submitting legal approvals, approval dates and/or launch dates, as well as the possibility of new adverse data for preclinical or clinical trials, and complementary analysis of existing data for preclinical or clinical trials; The risks associated with the provisional data; the risk that data from clinical trials will be subject to different interpretations and evaluations, including during the peer review/publication process, in the scientific community in general and by regulators; whether and when data from the BNT162 mSA vaccine program will be published in specialized scientific journals and, if so, when and with what modifications; Whether regulators will be satisfied with the design and results of these preclinical and clinical and future trials; Whether and when applications for authorisation of biologics can be submitted in all legal systems for potential vaccine candidates as part of the cooperation; whether and when such applications can be accepted by regulators, this will depend on countless factors, including determining the benefits of the product over its known risks and determining the efficacy of the product, if approved, whether these vaccines will be commercially successful; decisions made by regulators regarding labelling, manufacturing process, safety and/or any other issue that may affect the availability or commercial potential of these vaccine candidates, including the development of products or therapies by other companies; Capacity or production capacity, including the ability to produce the estimated number of doses over scheduled periods; Whether and when a future production agreement is reached with the United States; If and when other delivery agreements are concluded Uncertainty about the possibility of obtaining recommendations from technical immunization committees and other health authorities on these vaccines, as well as uncertainties about the commercial impact of these recommendations; and the evolution of competition.
