Statistical Consideration of Vaccine Clinical Trials Nam, Ju-Sun; Kang, Seung-Ho;
Clinical vaccines studies (that include cancer prevention vaccines and therapeutic vaccines) are ongoing to improve the quality of life and lengthen the human lifespan. Recently clinical trials and research on vaccines have become more active due to the prevalence of new viruses such as the A(H1N1) virus that freighted the whole word in 2009. In this paper we will describe the statistical aspects of clinical vaccine trials and outline the current situation of domestic and international vaccine development.
