Press Release (ePRNews.com) - TORONTO - Jan 25, 2018 - This upcoming presentation will address the challenges vaccine developers need to overcome when designing programs for resurgent diseases such as measles and mumps. The live session takes place on Thursday, Feb. 15, 2018 at 10 a.m. EST (3 p.m. GMT) featuring guest speakers Rolando Pajon, Ph.D., Lead Scientist for Vaccine and Novel Immunotherapeutics at Covance and Oliver Sendscheid, Scientific Affairs Director at Euroimmun US, Inc.
Webinar details: Vaccine Development Strategies for Stubborn Diseases: Battling the Measles and Mumps Comeback
Over 6,000 mumps cases were reported in the US during 2016 by the CDC, the highest in a decade. While earlier routine vaccine programs drastically reduced rates of mumps and measles, these diseases have made a comeback – triggering the hunt for new strategies in effective drug development.
Experts from Covance and Euroimmun will cover critical measles and mumps vaccination development issues including:
· Concomitant testing needs: any company developing pediatric vaccines for routine use will need to test for measles infection and protection during the clinical evaluation phase
· How to measure immunity: examining the challenge of differentiating natural antibodies (from natural infection) from vaccine elicited ones
· Immuno profiling of human immune response: measles antibodies as components of serological panels to evaluate immune response before and after treatment
