Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV)
We are seeking volunteers ages 60 and older to participate in a study for a Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV) vaccine. RSV is increasingly prevalent in elderly adults, can cause severe cold-like symptoms, and lead to serious illness and death. The study will help determine the safety and effectiveness of a single RSV vaccine injection compared to a placebo (no active medicine). Learn more or sign up to participate here.
Pediatric COVID-19 Vaccines
Clinical Research Associates and Meharry Medical College are coordinating clinical studies for COVID-19 vaccines for individuals aged 6 months to 11 years old in with parental consent. The participants in these clinical studies help to improve the health of children around the world. Some pediatric clinical studies are designed to develop pediatric prescribing information for medicines already being used in adults. Others are specific to diseases that uniquely or especially impact the lives of children, such as those that prevent disease—like vaccines—or are related to genetic conditions. What all studies have in common is a dedication to the protection of human rights and advancement of life-saving medicine. Click here to learn more.
