In a fibration $\Omega F \overset{\Omega j}{\rightarrow} \Omega X \overset{\Omega \pi}{\rightarrow}\Omega B$ we show that finiteness conditions on $F$ force the homology Serre spectral sequence with $\mathbb{F} _p$-coefficients to collapse at some finite term. This in particular implies that as graded vector spaces, $H_*(\Omega X)$ is ``almost'' isomorphic to $H_*(\Omega B)\otimes H_*(\Omega F)$. One consequence is the conclusion that $X$ is elliptic if and only if $B$ and $F$ are.
