What are the COVID-19 studies?
The COVID-19 studies are clinical research studies that have been designed to learn more about potential new vaccines or monoclonal antibodies for the prevention of COVID-19. Vaccines and antibodies are different ways to potentially prevent COVID-19, and there are different clinical studies researching these two approaches.
Vaccinations for other diseases have saved millions of lives in the past and we are looking for ways to save lives in the future.
Man-made antibodies are expected to work faster than a vaccine in providing immunity. They have the potential to treat and prevent disease progression in people already infected with the virus, as well as prevent disease before virus exposure. Therefore, these antibodies could be more appropriate than a vaccine for some people.
These trials, which are testing either potential new vaccines or monoclonal antibodies, are looking for volunteers who are interested in helping to find new ways to prevent COVID-19.
The studies are looking at how safe the potential new vaccines or antibodies are and how well they work.
Who can take part?
You may be able to take part in the COVID-19 studies if you:
You will need to meet all other study criteria to take part in the COVID-19 studies.
The decision to take part in a clinical research study is personal, and each person has their own reason for participating or not. Some volunteers take part in research to help people, while others who decide to take part want to advance medical knowledge.
It is important to note that there is no obligation to participate, and even if you decide to participate, you can change your mind at any point.
