Oxford University Succeeded: Coronavirus Vaccine Is Almost Ready

Oxford University Succeeded: Coronavirus Vaccine Is Almost Ready

When asked why it isn't enough to show that a vaccine elicits an antibody response - and why more testing is needed, Dr. Kathryn Edwards who directs vaccine research at Vanderbilt University said, "we need to know that it protects the animal or the human from the infection".

Researchers have reported that they were treated before giving massive doses of coronavirus to six monkeys. The six animals that were vaccinated had less of the virus in their lungs and airways. But researchers won't be celebrating until a vaccine is safe and effective in people.

Oxford University has now tested the largest covid-19 vaccine project in Britain, which is included in the world's powerful countries.

Adrian Hill, director of Oxford's Jenner Institute, which has teamed up with the drugmaker AstraZeneca to develop the vaccine, said ensuring wide distribution and low cost have been central to the project from the start. But the virus still appeared active in the nose.

No Guarantee Coronavirus Vaccine Will be Developed, Says WHO Envoy David Nabarro.

The study hasn't yet been reviewed by other scientists and formally published, but Prof Stephen Evans at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, described it as "high quality" and "very encouraging".

Oxford's Adrian Hill says that if it works the vaccine has another important benefit, "this is not a hugely hard vaccine to make". The potential upcoming vaccine, ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, is based on an adenovirus vaccine vector and the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein.

Researchers have reported that by May 13, almost a thousand people who volunteered for this research have been vaccinated as a trial.

The open letter urges Health Minister at the World health Assembly to support this people's vaccine.

These include MRNA.O of Moderna Company, PFE.N of Fizer Company, 22UAy.F of BioN.

Significantly, more than 100 vaccines are now being worked on to fight the coronavirus globally. The vaccine has to be used to prevent the corona virus from being infected in a wider population.

The World Health Assembly must forge a global agreement that ensures rapid universal access to quality-assured vaccines and treatments with need prioritized above the ability to pay.
