India's 1st COVID-19 vaccine gets human trial approval

India's 1st COVID-19 vaccine gets human trial approval”

June 29, 2020 - India's Covaxin has received permission to initiate Phase I & II Human clinical trials after the company submitted results generated from preclinical studies, demonstrating safety and immune response.

Bharat Biotech's Covid vaccine candidate Covaxin is set to undergo human clinical trials in July.

She said that, in later trials, after the safety of the vaccine has been assured, they would want to have a "global study" of the vaccine in order to properly test how effective it is.

In a recent breakthrough, India has finally developed its first indigenous COVID-19 vaccine named COAXING.

Rick Bright, who was sacked as head of the US Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) earlier this year, has warned that it could take up to two years to produce enough vials to meet the vaccine needs of the US population alone.

Pune-based Serum Institute and Delhi-based Panacea Biotec, too, are leading candidates from India to develop a Covid-19 vaccine.

Doctors are also testing various drugs to find out their effectiveness in fighting against the COVID-19 virus.

AstraZeneca could not be reached for comment by press time on the details of the supply agreement, including how Brazil would produce doses of the vaccine.

More than half of the 17 candidate vaccines identified by the World Health Organization (WHO) as being at the clinical evaluation stage involve Chinese companies or institutes.

In late-May 2020, Oxford University disclosed that it has commenced recruiting for Phase 2/3 trial of AZD1222 in about 10,000 adult volunteers in the United Kingdom.

A decision could also be made to make a vaccine available early to certain sections of the population, Landry explained. Their candidate is now in pre-clinical studies. "Our R&D and manufacturing teams worked tirelessly to deploy our proprietary technologies towards this platform".

Another is messenger RNA (mRNA) vaccine candidate in partnership with Translate Bio: With numerous experimental vaccine platforms now investigated by many healthcare companies, mRNA vaccine is deemed among the most hopeful.

According to medical journal The Lancet there have already been more than 1,000 clinical trials on dozens of pharmaceutical treatments for the virus but no effective medical intervention has yet been found.
