ABSTRACT

Regulators Could Allow Early Use of COVID-19 Vaccine or Treatment   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "Quickly developed therapeutic, prophylactic, and vaccine treatments will be essential to defeat the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease] pandemic. Standard regulatory and development protocols typically yield drug development in 6 to 11 years. However, experimental vaccines and prophylactics against COVID19 are in development and currently in trials, making deployment after safety trials feasible within months. Though efficacy of these treatments is uncertain, with probability of success, on average, at just 16 percent, efficacy can still be tested in real-world settings by adopting an approach that allows patients to begin drug treatments earlier in the regulatory process."
