Vaccine Stability Considerations to Enable Rapid Development and Deployment


Vaccines are at the forefront of public health worldwide, and during this Covid-19 pandemic this is as apparent as ever. It is critical that we build systems for their rapid development and deployment. To meet this need, stability must be designed into the development of new vaccines, starting with the formulation, and carried through to the process, packaging, storage, and distribution. Each step must be optimized and controlled. The stability scientists must work with the formulator to build efficient processes, as well as ensure proper upstream and downstream testing, final drug product characterization, release and stability testing and shipping studies. The inherent stability (or instability) of biologics, the ever-expanding range of different vaccine modalities, and the need to maintain vaccine quality through a complex global supply chain presents many challenges. Fortunately, the analytical tools and stability strategies are advancing in parallel. Stability scientists must stay up to date to ensure the best shelf life for their product. This is the goal of this workshop. The workshop will discuss pinch points along with the latest stability strategies and tools to optimize product shelf life, meet global regulations and supply needs.
