TBVI is continuously working on supporting the development of new vaccine candidates.
The current TB vaccine pipeline (last update October 2021), is as follows:
TBVI provides technical support for product and clinical development to TB vaccine researchers and developers.
TBVI has initiated and coordinated the realisation of a joint publication regarding preferred product characteristics (PPC) for therapeutic vaccines to improve tuberculosis treatment outcomes. This PPC is a result of a consensus generating consultation process from the WHO, TBVI and IAVI with input from experts within the TB field and beyond. To read the full publication, please follow the link: “Preferred product characteristics for therapeutic vaccines to improve tuberculosis treatment outcomes: Key considerations from World Health Organization consultations”.
TB Vaccine development pathway
The TB vaccine pipeline requires a global and comprehensive coordination of efforts with defined stages of development and criteria for progression of individual vaccine candidates. To address this, the TB Vaccine Development Pathway is an established tool that provides a structured development path and gating criteria for TB vaccine candidates. It also describes the different functions and capabilities required to advance a candidate TB vaccine to its next stage of development.
For more information about the Pathway, please visit www.TBVacPathway.org , read the article published in Tuberculosis The TB vaccine development pathway – An innovative approach to accelerating global TB vaccine development and/or Stage Gating Criteria Tables 2021
