Russian Federation claims success in producing COVID-19 vaccine

Moderna aims to price coronavirus vaccine at $50-$60 per course- FT

Moderna announced that it is moving into phase III human trials of its Covid-19 vaccine candidate mRNA-1273 with a booster shot of funding from the USA government, which allocated another $472 million to its efforts.

"Russia has really benefited from the billions of dollars that have been invested in the Soviet Union our vaccine infrastructure and knowledge", he said.

Two hundred volunteers will be recruited in Rochester. About 90 health care systems seek 30,000 volunteers. Two hundred of them will be Rochesterians, URMC says. At least four are in final Phase III human trials, according to World Health Organization data, including three developed in China and another in Britain.

Moderna's proposed price for a two-dose course sold to governments compares with US$39 for two doses under a deal that Pfizer and German partner BioNTech struck with the United States government, according to the report on Tuesday. To date, there has not yet been a successful mRNA vaccine developed.

The scientists' findings were presented Thursday by Rospotrebnadzor, Russia's consumer protection and human wellbeing watchdog.

A trial by Sinopharm would join Phase III trials already announced in Brazil by AstraZeneca, Sinovac Biotech and a Pfizer partnership with BioNTech.

Up to 30,000 participants ranging anywhere from 18 to 85 years old will be able to participate in the trial. In the 2nd phase, children and the elderly were studied to evaluate its safety and immunogenicity. Both are members of the Infectious Disease Unit at Rochester General Hospital.

The Brazilian government has said that it would begin with the distribution of just over 15 million dozens of Oxford-AstraZeneca experimental vaccine if trials prove the vaccine is safe.

Coronavirus: Apple Closes More Stores In US
Apple has now closed two more stores in Florida, St Johns Town Center in Jacksonville, and University Town Center in Sarasota. Apple is set to reclose 16 more stores in the US following a rise in new COVID-19 infections in several states.

The researchers from National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases in the USA and the Oxford University found that the ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine protects the macaques from COVID-19 pneumonia - a complication of SARS-CoV-2 infection in which the lungs become inflamed and may fill with fluid.

The recently published results of their Phase I trial showed that the vaccine did not lead to major adverse reactions and also produced neutralising antibodies in some measure.

"We do not expect to be the only vaccine out there but definitely based on research I have seen, our vaccine will be the first to be approved", Mr Dmitriev said.

This was revealed by the director of the FDA Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research, Dr. Peter Marks at the online Disease Control and Prevention Summit.

COVID-19 vaccine pricing is so uncertain, however, that SVB Leerink analysts did not include its impact in their Pfizer sales or earnings guidance.

So far, India has not signed any agreement with the pharma companies manufacturing vaccines, Mr Bhushan said. "This recognition is due not only to the efforts of our scientific and medical community, but also because the people of Rochester have been critical partners in the process of advancing medical research".

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to surge, all hopes rest on the development of a vaccine to beat the virus.
