Emergency Use Authorizations of Coronavirus Vaccines – Similarities and Differences between and EUA and Approval and Legal Ramifications of potential Vaccine Injury

Emergency Use Authorizations as we know them now were borne out of the terror attacks on 9/11 and subsequent anthrax mail incidents and came into law in 2004 and have been amended in 2013 and again in 2016.  As of 1/1/2021, two vaccines have been authorized for use in the United States, each under an EUA.  This talk will explore the history of the EUA, the changes made to the EUA, and how it is being utilized today.  The talk will also discuss the differences between EUAs and Approvals as well as the federal government’s absorption of damages from vaccine injuries – who and what is covered and what are the limitations.

SAI and Pharmaceutical Solid Form Patent Strategies for Repurposing Pharmaceutical Assets

This presentation will discuss the basics of pharmaceutical solid forms and why they are important in drug development and repurposing programs. The emergence of AI may also have a great impact in the near future on patent strategies, and Eyal will discuss how we can forecast now about how to go about such patent strategies.
