Russia Readies Approval For Second Covid-19 Vaccine

Russia Readies Approval For Second Covid-19 Vaccine

"Nobody has ever produced vaccines in the necessary volumes, so in reality, any vaccine that is ready next year will be available in limited quantities", she stated.

Saying that Golikova and Rospotrenbadzor President Anna Popova were also the EpiVakKorona vaccine at the meeting held for the new vaccine, Putin asked Golikova how she felt. Phase II trials will begin on 19 October.

"Two doses of MRT5500 induced neutralizing antibody levels significantly higher than those observed in COVID-19 patients", the companies said.

The company received approval from the FDA to test the vaccine in children about one month after a group of doctors urged pharmaceutical companies to include children in clinical trials.

The vaccine candidate uses a technology known as messenger RNA (mRNA) which instructs cells in the body to make specific coronavirus proteins that then produce an immune response.

Wednesday's announcement came days after the Kremlin said that another vaccine "registered" in August had only just begun a second round of Phase III safety and efficacy trials.

At the same time, he stressed that Russian vaccines against coronavirus must first meet all the needs of the domestic market and reach as many pharmacies as possible.

The WHO has been leading an initiative to manufacture and provide equitable worldwide access to a vaccine and Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the WHO director general, has said the global rollout of the drug will first be to those at highest risk with disbursement continuing on to other demographics as supplies increase.

AstraZeneca similarly paused all of its COVID-19 vaccine trials in early September due to a participant developing an unspecified sickness. The vaccine is now in Phase III trials on 40,000 participants. It's based on technology similar to that used by one of the fastest-moving vaccine developers, Moderna Inc.

Many companies are also using this approach to develop a vaccine, including the United States companies Moderna and Pfizer, whose vaccines are in the late testing stage.

Marsudi was to meet with United Kingdom (UK)-based pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca on Wednesday to cement a vaccine-dose deal for Indonesia, the world's fourth most populous nation with almost 270 million people, which has struggled to contain soaring infection rates.

The Government announced that 40,000 volunteers will participate in the clinical analyzes of the second Russian vaccine, of which 150 people are over 60 years of age. It might publish results of phase II clinical trials by early November.
