COVID-19 treatment and vaccine trials

ICON is currently working on several COVID-19 treatment and vaccine trials.

We have conducted more than 246 vaccine studies globally, including over 40 studies in respiratory viruses, within the past five years alone. In February ICON quickly mobilized its Vaccines, Infectious Diseases and Government and Public Health Solutions resources to assist both government and commercial clients in addressing the COVID-19 global threat and is already providing clinical monitoring and safety oversight on a number of new COVID-19 trials. ICON is a preferred partner for BARDA and has participated in seven studies during infectious disease outbreaks within the past 10 years, including two for H1N1 during a H1N1 pandemic and three for H7N9.

Respiratory devices

Respiratory devices

ICON has considerable experience in supporting trials of respiratory disease, infectious disease affecting respiratory function, and supporting investigational treatment. Additionally, our Medical Device & Diagnostic experts have conducted studies to aid in the diagnosis of respiratory conditions or with devices utilised to administer drugs in support of respiratory conditions.

As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves affecting the regulatory and clinical and landscape, ICON experts are available to support all aspects of your respiratory programme requirements.

ICON is working on several COVID-19 clinical trials. Download the following case studies:

COVID-19 Vaccine study: (PDF) One client trial investigating a prophylactic vaccine study in healthy participants required rapid patient recruitment, site selection, and study start-up.

COVID-19 - Easing the regulatory burden: (PDF) Various regulatory agencies have all published new recommendations on how to manage clinical trials in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. To accelerate the development of COVID-19 treatments and vaccines in general, institutional review boards, ethics committees and regulatory authorities are expediting timelines. Where ICON has encountered countries that have not implemented expedited review times, we have reached out directly to ensure this is implemented.

COVID-19 Treatment: (PDF) One client trial investigating an antiviral treatment for patients with confirmed coronavirus infection required rapid patient recruitment, site selection, and study start-up across multiple geographies.

COVID-19 vaccine challenges

COVID-19 vaccine challenges

Over the past decade, researchers have made great strides in vaccine research with gene sequencing, further development of mRNA and DNA vaccine platforms, and novel adjuvants for more traditional antigen based products. These advancements have enabled biopharmaceutical and government entities to respond to infectious disease outbreaks by fast tracking both vaccines and treatments, including monoclonal and polyclonal antibody products, in record time.

In the current pandemic, regulatory agencies such as the FDA and EMA and have expedited commercial approvals to bring safe vaccines and treatments to market. Groups such as CEPI and BARDA have enabled key assets and infrastructures to be leveraged in response to this pandemic.

However, numerous key development challenges to delivering a coronavirus vaccine remain.
