Pfizer and GSK are expected to gain approval and launch in time for this year’s flu season, but must educate public and physicians
The FDA Modernization Act 2.0 should make it easier for companies to gain regulatory authorization using non-traditional testing methods, like organs-on-a-chip. But biopharma will need to make the leap into technology to help build knowledge and data if the drug development world is to move away from animal testing entirely.
Messenger RNA (mRNA) prophylactic vaccines have made major breakthroughs in 2020 and 2021 with both the Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna COVID-19 vaccines gaining approval in more than 150 countries. These mRNA COVID vaccines have been developed much faster and with superior clinical profiles when compared to other more conventional modalities.
French-founded biotech Smart Immune has made significant headway in stimulating the thymus, a small gland with a huge immunological impact which rarely finds itself as a key clinical target.
