At Johnson & Johnson, there is no greater priority than the safety and wellbeing of the people we serve every day around the world. We are committed to providing transparent updates throughout the clinical development process of our vaccine candidate, in compliance with regulatory standards.
As recently announced alongside other biopharmaceutical companies, we pledged our ongoing commitment to our developing and testing a potential vaccine for COVID-19 in accordance with high ethical standards and sound scientific principles. Further, our COVID-19 clinical trials, and the development of all investigational products across Johnson & Johnson, are guided by protocols and standards that help ensure our trials are conducted professionally, ethically, and responsibly.
In addition to our standard oversight of safety during the course of our studies, during our Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine candidate study (ENSEMBLE), an independent, expert vaccine Safety Advisory Board has been put in place for additional consultation and advice on safety risk management. Furthermore, the safety of the entire clinical study will be overseen by an independent Data and Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), as described in the study protocol.
We are also committed to disclosing our data on external public registries, such as ClinicalTrials.gov and the EU Clinical Trials Register, as well as publishing our results and making both our Clinical Study Reports and clinical trial participant data available for sharing with researchers through the Yale University Open Data Access (YODA) Project.
