COLUMBUS, OH, July 30, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — Aventiv Research, today announced plans to participate as a study site for, and begin enrolling participants into, the Phase 2/3 global study sponsored by Pfizer Inc. and BioNTech SE of an investigational vaccine, BNT162b2, against SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the current global pandemic. The Aventiv Research study site is one of more than 120 clinical investigational sites around the world that will collectively enroll up to 30,000 participants.
Dr. Samir Arora has been a Principal and Sub Investigator involved in Phase I-IV clinical research on over 200 studies and serves as primary Clinical Trial Investigator at Aventiv’s Columbus, Ohio location. “We have a large facility on the East side and have had to repurpose some areas of our office to accommodate for the large numbers of participants that will be coming through,” commented Arora. “We learned a lot during the first wave and have made significant safety enhancements to give our patients the comfort that we are a safe, experienced and highly professional organization to work with.”

The Phase 2/3 study is an event driven trial that will continue enrollment on a rolling basis, enroll up to 30,000 participants at more than 120 clinical investigational sites around the world, in non-pregnant adults 18-85 years old.
