The Supported Studies Programme

Immunology and Specialty Medicine








[The following areas are of interest to the Otilimab ISS/SCS Committee. These were last updated in May 2021.]
Otilimab research proposals are reviewed on a monthly basis. GSK pledges to communicate decisions within 8 weeks. Sponsors will then be invited to submit a full protocol. Please note that approval of a proposal does not guarantee GSK’s support of the protocol.

• GM-CSF expression and myeloid cell activation in COVID-19
• Understanding the underlying immunobiology associated with COVID-19 severity of disease and outcome risk factors
• Understanding the immunobiology of “Long Covid” & association with myeloid cell activation
• Evaluation of clinical outcomes in COVID-19 with therapeutic sequencing or combination therapies
• Timing of treatment in hospitalised COVID-19 patients in need of oxygen support
• Inhibition of disease progression in COVID 19
• Burden of disease costing, HCRU, cost-effectiveness data of COVID-19 therapy
• Unmet needs and risk factors in vaccinated/previously COVID-19 infected patients and the role of immunomodulatory therapies in these populations
Burden of “Long COVID” and long term impact of immunomodulatory therapies
