Science Survey Examines 10 Potential Vaccines Needing To Move Forward In Clinical Trials
Science: Unfilled Vials
“…Developed in university, government, or industry labs, [several experimental vaccines] have proven effective in animals and even been tested in small human trials. But because the diseases they target, like Ebola, are not seen as important threats in the developed world, they have not attracted the industry investment needed to prove efficacy in people. … With the help of a dozen vaccine experts, Science compiled its own list … [of experimental vaccines] that do not present obvious scientific hurdles, would fill a pressing public health need, and have attracted scant attention from the pharmaceutical industry…” (Cohen, 1/1).
