In their brand new review article, Marcin Osuchowski and his co-authors from more than twenty research institutions from all over Europe address the interplay between preclinical and clinical research in the context of COVID-19.
Is this yet another paper in the jungle of COVID-19 literature? No! Their article is more than a mere summary of the published work of either domain. It gives a concise overview of preclinical models, specifically through the prism of identifying the most relevant synergy points for preclinical and clinical COVID-19 research. The pandemic underscored the importance of preclinical research in critical care medicine, anywhere from vaccine development to clinical trial design. The new review suggests a number of specific improvement points, investigative and logistic, with the potential to enhance the investigative synergy of preclinical and clinical research for numerous COVID-19 endpoints
