Amgen and Generate Biomedicines inked a research partnership to discover and develop protein therapeutics for five clinical targets.

The popularity of decentralized clinical trials (DCTs) is surging, especially among patients. Harnessing technology of all kinds, these trials provide an attractive alternative to the old-style, site-anchored system on which traditional clinical trials have rested. They also have the potential to provide better, more timely data since that data is primarily collected under real-life situations and often available more quickly to monitoring teams, according to Kristin Mauri, Director of Solution Services, Remarque Systems.

Codagenix Inc. announced favorable safety and immunogenicity data from a Phase I dose-escalation trial of the company’s single-dose intranasal COVI-VAC vaccine, and London-based pHOXBIO Ltd. reported results from a pivotal phase II/III study of the novel prophylactic nasal spray pHOXWELL.
