The WHO is publishing a COVID Vaccine Tracker and Landscape document This link will open in a new window twice weekly. This provides summary tables of COVID-19 vaccine candidates, including analysis and visualization, progression through phased trials, and links to reports on safety and efficacy.
BIO has also created a weekly pipeline tracker This link will open in a new window to provide updates on clinical innovation happening in the industry to combat COVID-19.
The innovative pharmaceutical industry is developing new COVID-19 vaccines and adapting existing ones to offer longer, broader and more durable protection. This includes multi-valent vaccines that can offer protection against more than one variant of COVID-19.
The innovative pharmaceutical industry is developing new medicines to treat the symptoms of COVID-19 at every stage of infection, which could help relieve pressures on health systems, for example by reducing the risk of hospitalization. These include antiviral therapies which aim to stop the virus during the early stages of infection, prevent it from copying itself in our cells, or strengthen our body's existing viral defences.
In addition, we are developing therapies designed to protect people's heart, blood, and lungs from the harmful effects of COVID-19 infection, and medicines which aim to relieve the life-altering symptoms of long COVID.
