Vaccine trial

From WikiMD's Wellnesspedia

Definition[edit | edit source]

A vaccine trial is a clinical trial that aims at establishing the safety and efficacy of a vaccine prior to it being licensed.

How is it done?[edit | edit source]

A vaccine candidate drug is first identified through preclinical evaluations that could involve high throughput screening and selecting the proper antigen to invoke an immune response.

Time to complete[edit | edit source]

Some vaccine trials may take months or years to complete, depending on the time required for the subjects to react to the vaccine and develop the required antibodies.
