CEPI vaccine R&D pipeline and cost tracking survey

Vaccines can be powerful tools for preventing potential outbreaks of epidemic infectious diseases from becoming humanitarian crises. However, developing these vaccines requires investment and evidence on what it would cost to successfully develop a sound epidemic infectious disease vaccine portfolio is scarce.

Partly supported by the Research Council of Norway through the Global Health and Vaccination Programme GLOBVAC, we conducted a cost analysis to estimate the minimum cost for achieving vaccine research and development preparedness targets in a portfolio of 11 epidemic infectious diseases. Our research found that, out of a pipeline of 224 vaccine candidates from preclinical through to phase 2 for 11 epidemic infectious diseases, the cost of developing a single epidemic infectious disease vaccine from preclinical trials through to end of phase 2a is US$31–68 million (US$14–159 million range, assuming no risk of failure. Progressing at least one vaccine through to the end of phase 2a for each of the 11 epidemic infectious diseases would cost a minimum of $2·8–3·7 billion ($1·2 billion–$8·4 billion range).

You can read the full research within The Lancet Global Health here as well as a commentary piece by Chief Medical Officer of GeneOne Life Science, Joel Maslow, here.

Our work within this area is ongoing. CEPI is inviting you to participate in a survey that is mapping vaccine research and development pipelines and associated costs for emerging infectious diseases.

To achieve its strategic objectives, and to make efficient use of its financial resources, CEPI needs to draw on a variety of vaccine candidates and leverage diversity of product development partners. CEPI is currently building up a comprehensive knowledge base on available vaccine candidates and their current status, in order to serve vaccine preparedness needs against non-commercial epidemic disease threats.

Our request

Through this survey, you are asked to:

  • Report the current status of development of vaccine candidates against non-commercial epidemic disease threats.
  • Clarify current sources of funding, development costs incurred and future funding needs for bringing the vaccines through phase II and potentially phase III in response to potential disease outbreaks.
  • Specify main drivers of R&D costs and technical success to date and identify potential drivers of future costs and technical risks for bringing your vaccine candidates through late stages of clinical development.

Diseases in scope

  • Diseases that are of main interest to CEPI include those listed by the WHO Blueprint as priority diseases: Crimean Congo haemorrhagic fever, Lassa fever, MERS-CoV, Severe acute respiratory syndrome, Nipah, Rift Valley Fever, Chikungunya, Zika, Severe fever with thrombocytopaenia syndrome, Ebola, Marburg. (For more details, see here).
  • Other diseases that have epidemic potential and which are not included in the WHO priority list.
