COVID-19: Russian vaccine trial successful in human”

The leader of the team behind Sputnik V said on Friday that the immune response documented among volunteers taking the world's first registered coronavirus vaccine is sufficient to fight any level of Covid-19 infection.

Last month, Russian Federation became the first country to register a coronavirus vaccine, which was named Sputnik V. Developed by the Gamaleya Research Institute, it underwent clinical trials in June and July.

It is based on a known platform previously used for other vaccines. The researchers weakened those pathogens and modified their genomes in such a way so that they deliver the coronavirus RNA fragments to human cells, forcing them to produce a large amount of its membrane proteins.

Josue Bacaltchuk, vice president of medical affairs for Latin America for Janssen, J&J's Belgian unit developing the vaccine prototype, said countries hosting the trials would also likely get preferential access to vaccines once ready.

According to a statement signed by the ministry's Director of Information, Media and Public Relations, Olujimi Oyetomi, the minister, in his response, said the vaccine would be quickly referred to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), as well as the Nigeria Institute of Pharmaceutical Research and Development (NIPRD), amongst other agencies, for review and possible validation. The first formulation was a frozen one and the second one was a lyophilized one. "With this [publication], we answer all of the questions of the West that were diligently asked over the past three weeks, frankly with the clear goal of tarnishing the Russian vaccine", said Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, the country's sovereign wealth fund which has backed the vaccine. But still, scientists say that the trails were too small to prove its safety and effectiveness. "However section 3 will happen, on 40,000 sufferers of various ages".
