Applied Clinical Trials

This webcast will look at the scale of AMR, how CROs can assist in the development plan of new antimicrobials and where commercial development of new vaccines may be most effective. It will also provide insights and expert opinion on the potential success of antibacterial vaccination in controlling the rise of AMR and reducing the economic burden of infectious diseases.

Event Overview:
The prospect of widespread antimicrobial resistance in the global community offers a world view where AMR takes us “…back to the dark ages of medicine” (D.Cameron,2014). Although there are global initiatives looking to promote better prescribing practice, to encourage innovative approaches to reversing AMR or to assist in the development of new classes of antibiotics, the role of vaccination in controlling community carriage and spread of AMR strains is sometimes overlooked. This webinar will examine at the scale of AMR, how CROs can assist in the development plan of new antimicrobials and where commercial development of new vaccines may be most effective. It will also provide insights and expert opinion on the potential success of antibacterial vaccination in controlling the rise of AMR and reducing the economic burden of infectious diseases.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • The geographic spread of AMR and global threat to health, and its impact on prosperity

  • The scope of AMR interventions currently in operation and the roles of academia and commercial organizations (e.g., CROs) within them

  • Current antibacterial vaccines – successes and failures – hope for the future?

  • New approaches and targets in AMR control

  • Rolling out AMR vaccines – hurdles and barriers to success
