The test vaccine contains no thimerosal or adjuvant, according to NIAID
supports a number of international research programs on infectious diseases, including HIV/AIDS.
Many expand or build upon existing NIAID
bioterrorism or infectious disease research programs.
In another research study, scientists supported by NIAID
found that an investigational flu vaccine sprayed as a fine mist into children's nostrils is highly effective in preventing both the flu and otitis media, a common flu-related ear infection.
The research supported by this RFA will contribute to meeting the goals for host defense described in the NIAID
Strategic Plan for Biodefense, which is located at: http://www2.
Tramont's version (available on the same Web page), the Uganda study team consistently defined "serious" adverse events as those leading to hospitalization or death, which was the customary practice in that medical community, instead of using the more complex NIAID
research definitions; the change was never formally approved by NIAID
could have used this funding process to create a clinical trial infrastructure built for such research.
Although investigators have hypothesized that a two-stage TB skin test might be more reliable than a single-stage test in HIV-infected individuals, a recently completed NIAID
study found this not to be the case.
We are pleased that NIAID
has granted an award to support the development of TP-271, which will be the fourth compound to enter development from our novel chemistry platform," said Guy Macdonald, president and chief executive officer of Tetraphase.
, part of the National Institutes of Health, has made an initial award of $2.
We are pleased to be able to tap into our existing HIV/AIDS clinical research infrastructure to help test promising investigational vaccines against TB," said NIAID
Director Anthony S.
As identified by the recently convened NIAID
Blue Ribbon Panel on Bioterrorism and Its Implications for Biomedical Research, there is a critical need for the establishment of highly developed research and development infrastructure with strong translational research capacity to implement the Biodefense Research Agenda of the NIAID
