China Starts Clinical Trials of Coronavirus Vaccine

China Starts Clinical Trials of Coronavirus Vaccine”

They aim to see if any drugs can help reduce the effects of Covid-19 infection and help identify those suitable for further testing and clinical trials in 12 months. The scientists will collect samples and information from COVID-19 patients in the U.K.to answer questions about the virus.

A £20 million Covid-19 rapid research response fund has been announced by the Department of Health and Social Care.

.

Mr Sharma said: "UK scientists and researchers have been working tirelessly on the development of treatments for coronavirus".

According to the local press, unlike other clinical trials, the volunteers did not need to be infected with the new coronavirus that causes Covid-19, and the researchers will seek to determine if the substance produces antibodies and makes them immune to the respiratory condition. "This investment will speed up globally-recognized vaccine development capabilities and help us find a new defense against this disease", Matt Hancock, Health Secretary, said.

It should be mentioned that in a key step towards developing diagnosis methods, the Duke-NUS researchers helped to culture the new Coronavirus in January after the Republic reported its first confirmed infection case.

"These efforts will be critical to finding better ways to treat and manage COVID-19, which we hope will help to save lives, protect the more vulnerable, and support the development, trials and in due course the scale up of production of much-needed vaccines".

The Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, said: "In the midst of a global health emergency the United Kingdom is using all its extensive research expertise to quickly develop new vaccines to target this worldwide threat". It provides sourcing for each, as well, including credible media sources, journals and the World Health Organization.

Jennifer Haller was the first person to be injected with the trial vaccine.

The project, led by Prof Peter Horby of the University of Oxford, will first test two HIV drug therapies: lopinavir-ritonavir and low-dose corticosteroids.

According to KDKA, the scientists modified the measles vaccine by attaching the genetic material of the novel coronavirus to the modified vaccine, which had been in use for years.

In February, it was revealed that Israel's Institute for Biological Research (IBR) is in the final process of developing the COVID-19 vaccine, using their expertise in the past to develop a vaccine against avian Coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV).

A further £0.3 million funding will go to a project under Profs Ultan Power and Ken Mills from Queens University Belfast who are testing a library of around 1,000 human-use approved drugs on cells in the laboratory.
