UK Scientists to Immunize Hundreds with Coronavirus Vaccine

Virology institute launches Russia's second COVID-19 vaccine human trial

Professor Petrovsky told The Australian that the vaccine has now been approved to be tested on the elderly, children and cancer patients.

Meanwhile, Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline said the United States government will pay $2.1 billion to them for COVID-19 vaccines to cover 50 million people and to underwrite the drug makers' testing and manufacturing.

The human clinical trial of indigenously developed Covaxin, a possible vaccine against coronavirus, began at a hospital, officials said on Friday.

Shattock, who is leading the research on the vaccine at Imperial, said that "We are still doing research on it".

Nevertheless, Kirill Dmitriev, the head of Russia's sovereign wealth fund which is financing the Gamaleya trials, told CNN: "It's a Sputnik moment".

"Now we will see which categories will get the vaccine first".

But in a statement, Charnley seemed to suggest the deal could be resurrected. Never say never, but to be clear Mike Ashley is 100% committed to this deal.

Stoffels said prior tests of this type of vaccine in other diseases found that a second shot significantly increases protection.

The vaccine developed by the Gamalei Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology (Moscow, Russia) could be approved for civilian use within three to seven days of its registration, said a person familiar with the process to Bloomberg. The vaccine will be made available for public use; however healthcare workers will be the first ones to get it.

Russian officials, as reported by CNN said that their scientific data is now being compiled and will be out for peer review and publication by early August.

Besides, human trials have begun for the second coronavirus vaccine candidate at the Russian state virology institute.

A group of scientists, led by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, discovered a new vaccine, developed from a common cold virus called adenovirus serotype 26 (Ad26).

Following the study, a Phase 1/2a first-in-human clinical trial of the vaccine candidate has now commenced in healthy volunteers in the U.S. and Belgium. Russian Federation has recorded more than 800,000 Covid-19 cases, making it the fourth most-affected country in the world. "We have 20 vaccines in clinical trials, (so) we can be pretty confident that at least two of those will work", he said, adding that the efficacy of the vaccine will depend on the strength of the body's immune response to it.
