Keeping Clinical Trials Going During a Pandemic

June 12, 2020

When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, it disrupted all aspects of daily life. Many drug developers were forced to suspend clinical trials because of the challenges of brining participants into medical centers with the risk of infection and the strain on healthcare workers. Palvella Therapeutics, which is developing an experimental therapy for a rare skin condition has been able to navigate the pandemic and continue its clinical study without disruption thanks to recognize the challenge early and adjusting its study plans accordingly.
