(Reuters) – Pfizer Inc on Wednesday reported results from two late-stage studies ahead of schedule as it put off its March 31 investor day amid the coronavirus outbreak.

The drugmaker said its experimental treatment, abrocitinib, was effective in treating atopic dermatitis in combination with topical therapies in a late-stage study.

In addition, it also reported positive top-line results from another late-stage study testing its pneumococcal conjugate vaccine candidate in adults 18 years of age or older not previously vaccinated against pneumococcal disease, a type of bacterial infection.
