With the publication of the new book The Politics of Fear: Médecins Sans Frontières and the West African Ebola Epidemic, MSF provides a deeper reflection around the response to the outbreak in 2014-2015. What was the motivation for some of the response decisions? Were there effective medical advances that emerged from the intervention? What lessons did MSF take away from the largest mobilization in the organization’s history? What are the lingering needs in the countries whose health infrastructures were severely compromised by the outbreak? And is the world ready for the next outbreak of Ebola or other infectious diseases? They will also share information on the post-Ebola medical needs in Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea, and how MSF is addressing them.

Recognition of the skin by vaccinologists as an ideal anatomical target has gathered momentum in the past decade. The premise that the dense population of APCs can be targeted, stimulated and loaded with antigens to induce robust immune responses and result in more efficacious vaccines has stimulated many efforts to understand skin physiology, the skin immune system antigen presenting cells, effector responses and modes of immune stimulation and delivery formats. The field is ripe to have broad interchange on relevant related disciplines to focus both research and development efforts on more effective and informative directions. With several products in late stage development and a newly licensed delivery device, a timely multi disciplinary interchange is greatly needed to help set the stage for progress that can lead to capitalizing on the immunopotency of the skin to bring about better human health.

Theme: Innovative Therapeutic Strategies in Vaccines & Vaccination

Track 1: Vaccine development:
Vaccine research is long, complex and costly. Because a vaccine is a biological product made from living microorganisms, its development method is quite different from that of a pharmaceutical method. Approximately 70% of production time is dedicated to quality control, Vaccine development is a long, complex process, often lasting 10-15 years and involving a combination of public and private involvement. Vaccine development and testing follow a standard set of steps.
1. Laboratory Studies and Animal Studies: Exploratory Stage, Pre-clinical Stage, IND Application
2. Clinical Studies with Human Subjects: Phase I Vaccine Trials, Phase II Vaccine Trials, Phase III Vaccine Trials,
3. Approval and Licensure
4. Post-Licensure Monitoring of Vaccines
5. Phase IV Trials

VAERS: The Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System


Track 2: Vaccine Business:

The Evolution in the Vaccines market continues with strong growth and new prospects to continue the growth in Vaccines market, which now stands at about $25 billion. The market is expected to return a compound annual growth rate of more than 8% through 2018, Evaluate projects, with some segments like adult vaccines showing even better.
