Periodic Report - INYVAX (Optimisation of the development of Poverty-Related-Diseases (PRD) vaccines by a transversal approach, addressing common gaps and challenges)

Project ID: 223532
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH

Abstract

The development of vaccines against poverty-related diseases faces several common gaps and challenges. These include difficulties in accessing know-how and technology platforms in vaccine development, formulation and delivery, difficulties in harmonising safety data collection, and an insufficient numbers of trained scientists able to undertake leadership roles in vaccine development.

INYVAX was initiated with the objective to address these challenges by establishing a comprehensive database of marketed vaccine technologies, optimising knowledge and resources for the formulation of PRD vaccines, implementing safety standards in clinical trials of PRD vaccines and funding a training programme in vaccinology.

Their report covers the initial aims and outcomes of the project. In order to raise awareness of the consortium's work and to present and share the project with the general public, a project website was established at http://www.inyvax.eu. To highlight the efforts in safety harmonisation in vaccine clinical trials, a letter to the editor of the journal Vaccine was drafted and is currently prepared for submission.
