Pneumococcal vaccine in people at risk


"A very specific pneumococcal vaccine"


The pneumococcal vaccine prevents infections caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pneumoniae, which can cause pneumonia, meningitis and ear infections, especially in people with weakened immune systems.

Vaccines work by stimulating the immune system to produce antibodies against the bacteria.

The clinical study is conducted to evaluate the efficacy and safety of this pneumococcal vaccine in people with system weakened by various health problems.

To this end, it is important to participate in clinical studies like this one to help improve public health and protect individuals with an immune system at greater risk of contracting pneumococcus.

To participate, you must:

  • Be between 18 and 64 years old
  • Have a diagnosis of type 2 diabetes or asthma or chronic heart disease or chronic kidney disease or COPD

You will be reimbursed for expenses related to the study during your participation and you will be surrounded by a medical team throughout the process.

The study process in pictures


Step 1 | Before starting the study, we will take time to fully explain the selection process and the conduct of the study by phone.


Step 2 | After the initial phone interview, if you are still interested in taking part in a study, we schedule a preliminary meeting with you during which you may ask all the questions you wish and take the time you require to read over the consent form. This form explains, in detail, the different stages of each study.


Step 3 | You may make a decision at that time to move forward with or terminate the selection process. However, you are under no obligation to make an immediate decision. Based on briefing content, you may take the time necessary to come to a decision and consult with your personal physician or loved ones.


Step 4 | Depending on the nature of the study, some tests or medical examinations may be required. In the majority of cases, these tests or examinations are conducted on Diex Research premises based on your individual availability.


Step 5 | If you are eligible, you may then begin a clinical study with us.
