Strategies to Keep Drug Development Moving During COVID-19
With many studies now paused, cancelled completely, or in the early stages of restarting, this time offers a rare opportunity to re-evaluate your program and to pivot in the direction your data are suggesting. Here we will highlight strategies to help minimize delays and keep your program moving.
Learn how Nuventra can help you navigate these uncertain times and keep your program on track.
Developing Vaccines for the Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) Outbreak
The question on everybody’s mind: when will we have a vaccine for COVID-19? Our latest blog post discusses the virus as well as a potential timeline for two vaccines and one antiviral therapy currently in development.
Nuventra is committed to do our part in fighting this global pandemic by helping sponsors bring their COVID-19 vaccines and therapies to the general population as soon as possible.
Global Impacts of COVID-19 on Drug Development
Drug development has not been spared from the negative impacts of the COVID‑19 pandemic. We have assembled this post to highlight how the current pandemic is shaping the future of drug development around the world.
During this difficult time, it is important to consider what you can do now to strengthen your drug program for the future. Nuventra’s team of experts are here to support your needs and any activities related to strengthening your development program.
How Technology Makes Virtual Clinical Pharmacology Phase 1 Studies Possible
With the current COVID-19 pandemic, drug developers and researchers are searching for drug development strategies that limit human contact. For certain drugs and certain types of Phase 1 studies, a “virtual” Phase 1 trial might be possible.
Here we examine current solutions that could allow Phase 1 clinical pharmacology trials to be conducted as either partially virtual or completely virtual trials.
Understanding Vaccine Development & COVID-19
Scientists are continuing to search for a vaccine that can reliably prevent COVID-19. Discovering a vaccine to combat the virus is only part of the puzzle; large-scale production, ensuring proper dosing for efficacy, and addressing potential safety concerns remain significant hurdles.
Learn more about vaccine development for the virus, how vaccines work, and the importance of dosing and efficacy.
