United Kingdom tests if COVID-19 vaccines might work better inhaled

United Kingdom tests if COVID-19 vaccines might work better inhaled”

According to france24.com, China has four COVID-19 vaccines in the final stage of clinical trials and at least three of those drugs have already been offered to essential workers under an emergency use programme inaugurated in July. On Monday, it said it had enrolled more than 29,000 volunteers.

'[Researchers] would notify us if they had any safety concerns and have not done that to date, ' Dr Kathrin Jansen, Pfizer's head of vaccine research, said on the call.

Brazil: Clinical trials for the coronavirus vaccine being developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford University resumed in Brazil on Monday, September 14 after the country's health regulator received confirmation over the weekend that its British equivalent MHRA had approved the resumption of clinical tests, a company representative said.

FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said during an Instagram Live event that the agency is "going to do very significant work with the company to figure out if there's a significant safety issue or not".

This means the FDA is only requiring data on 6,000 volunteers - 3,000 vaccinated and 3,000 given a placebo, the executives said. Last week, nine pharma companies, including Astra-Zeneca and Pfizer, pledged to rigorously vet any vaccine, but the researchers said that missing from the joint statement was a promise to share more critical details about their research.

Bourla told the media that the company releasing data is "very unusual" but called it a "must" due to ongoing discussions with the United States government and regulators.

AstraZeneca's trials resumed in the United Kingdom and Brazil on Monday following the green light from British regulators, but remain on hold in the US.

The comments follow rival AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine trials being put on hold worldwide on September 6 after a serious side effect was reported in a volunteer in Britain.

Volunteers are expected to receive a second shot of the adenovirus-based viral vector vaccine within 21 days of the first.

Results showed the levels of neutralizing antibodies were between 1.8 and 2.8 times greater than those seen in recovered patients.

The world has pinned its hopes of countering coronavirus on the development of vaccines, with governments planning for their availability at the end of this year and the beginning of next.
