Research to develop and test a vaccine to protect against COVID-19 is ramping up quickly. The first clinical trial of a vaccine in Seattle, WA
, testing 45 young, healthy volunteers is underway. Other clinical trial approaches may be available in the future. Associated Press (AP) reports that some researchers are hoping to quickly develop vaccines that provide temporary protection while a longer-lasting option is developed. Dr. Anthony Fauci
, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) says even if initial tests go well, it could take up to 18 months before a vaccine offering longer protection is available for widespread use.
Clinical study enrollment is one of the highest barriers to timely completion of clinical trials -- which can ultimately impact time-to-market for new pharmaceuticals and medical devices. Headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts
, Clinical Connection, Inc. provides a patient recruiting clinical trials platform designed to help the clinical trials industry meet enrollment goals for clinical research studies. Clients include pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers, contract research organizations (CROs) academic and independent clinical research centers, hospitals and physician practices engaged in clinical research.
