Human Challenge Trial: Successfully Tested Vaccine For COVID-19

This document outlines the norms of vaccine development in reference to the ‘Human Challenge Trial’.

Human challenge trials are trials in which participants are intentionally challenged (whether or not they have been vaccinated) with an infectious disease organism. This challenge organism may be close to wild-type and pathogenic, adapted, and/or attenuated from wild-type with less or no pathogenicity, or genetically modified in some manner. In addition, ethics in such clinical trials include “minimizing risks to subjects and maximizing
benefits”.

Subsequently, various research institutes and companies are at the forefront of developing a vaccine against the novel coronavirus. These include the University of Oxford and the Jenner Institute, Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute, Tongji Hospital, and American biotech company Moderna.
