Novartis reported that its meningococcal serogroup B (MenB) vaccine, Bexsero (Meningococcal Group B Vaccine), will be used as part of a vaccination program at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB). In the last three months, FDA has approved the use of Bexsero twice in response to MenB outbreaks at US college campuses.
