FDA Guidelines for Coronavirus Clinical Trials
The spread of COVID-19 is impacting every facet of the pharmaceutical industry, including planned and ongoing clinical trials. Recognizing that the coronavirus presents challenges to protocol-specified procedures, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has published guidelines regarding the conduct of clinical trials during this unprecedented time. To learn more about these guidelines, please visit our page Clinical Trials: Coronavirus Impact and FDA Guidelines.
FDA Video Explaining the Different Types of Coronavirus Tests
Today, the FDA issued a new video resource explaining the different categories of tests in the fight against COVID-19: diagnostic tests and antibody tests. As the video explains, diagnostic tests can tell if the tested person currently is infected. Antibody or serology tests detect if the person’s blood contains antibodies to coronavirus. The body produces antibodies when one becomes infected by the virus, and they help the immune system fight off the infection. If an antibody test finds antibodies in the blood, it likely means the person has been previously infected with the virus. Antibody tests do not detect whether a person is currently infected and should not be used to diagnose a current COVID-19 infection. The results from antibody tests can help us better understand questions about exposure to COVID-19.
