Addressing the Rapidly Evolving Vaccine Development Landscape

Life Sciences, Clinical Trials,
  • Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Will COVID-19 spur disruptive innovation in vaccine studies? The current pandemic has put a bright spotlight on vaccine trials, showing why it’s never been more urgent for robust and thoughtful vaccine trial designs that can be executed efficiently and nimbly. Typically shorter in duration relative to other trials, vaccine trials can cause an increased pressure to plan and execute adeptly.

Join VP, Strategic Development, Scott Treiber, along with AMR’s Chief Medical Officer, Dr Jeffrey Rosen, on Tuesday June 30th, 2020 for an upcoming webinar titled ‘Addressing the Rapidly Evolving Vaccine Development Landscape.’ Optimal approaches to study design and execution, with acknowledgement of the specific challenges presented by different trials and disease states, will be explored.

Treiber and Rosen will address current best practices that enhance vaccine trials performance, such as including experienced sites in protocol development and how to focus site selection to maximize patient numbers across fewer sites for reduced variability. They will detail operational guidance like abbreviate ICFs for rapid pre-screening, pre-emptive measures to accelerate enrollment and operational efficiencies that can improve the speed and quality of vaccine trials. Historical case studies (Zika, Dengue, Chikungunya) will be discussed to demonstrate how these changed the approach to subsequent trials. 

Each trial presents its own specific challenges. How will the current pandemic inform, adapt, or completely alter some of these proven strategies? Current events put into sharper focus the need for streamlined, accessible technologies that can make vaccine trials quicker, easier and more patient-centric.

Can tools such as ePRO diaries, telemedicine, HIPAA-compliant virtual systems and more aid in delivering results faster while maintaining quality? The presenters will explore these topics and provide practical insights on how vaccine trial planning and execution can evolve moving forward.
