hVIVO has pioneered human challenge studies for over 20 years and has built one of the most comprehensive, multi-parametric bio and databanks ever created for infectious diseases. This dataset is continuously gathered throughout the onset, progression and resolution of an infection which is enabled by hVIVO’s challenge study model. Together this forms the Disease in Motion® platform.
Human challenge studies involve deliberately exposing a volunteer to an infectious agent in a safe and controlled setting and continuously monitoring their health via clinical assessments, biological sampling and other forms of data collection. The Company is committed to volunteer patient data privacy and data is only collected from fully consented volunteers in accordance with all relevant privacy guidelines.
Our Bio & Databank
For each volunteer, multiple samples types at various points before, during and after viral challenge and resolution are retained, including Plasma, Serum, NPS, Nasal Wash, PAXgene RNA/DNA, Urine and others.
A range of measurements, including immunological and virological information, has already been collected and are available, with the stored samples available for further analysis upon request.
All datasets are accompanied by clinical notes associated with an individual volunteer’s state of health at any stage during the study, including symptoms, symptom diary cards and volunteer vital signs.
Dedicated, state-of-the-art storage facility
Samples are held in hVIVO’s dedicated off-site facility, including state-of-art refrigerators.
Commitment to privacy
The Company is committed to volunteer patient data privacy and data is only collected from fully consented volunteers in accordance with all relevant privacy guidelines.
