COVID-19 vaccine trials : Research Centers of America begins enrollment of healthy volunteers
Research Centers of America (RCA), an independent research site in Broward County, Florida, said that it is currently holding COVID-19 vaccine trials, implemented under the US government’s Operation Warp Speed (OWS).
The research site is enrolling volunteers to take part in the clinical trials, working with the US government and various pharma companies, which have developed a vaccine for the potential prevention of COVID-19.
The first clinical trial at the site will be for Moderna, which is anticipated to enroll nearly 30,000 participants in the US. Research Centers of America will recruit 300-500 participants for Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine trial, which will be a phase 3 study for mRNA-1273 dosage of 100 µg.
Dr. Howard Schwartz – Chief Medical Officer at Research Centers of America said: “Today is a day of hope. Today is a day of promise. If all of us continue to do all we can, we’re going to reach the day when we put this coronavirus behind us.”
