Chinese firm says coronavirus vaccine candidate shows promise in human test

According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), there are 16 vaccine candidates now in late-stage clinical trials among the 140 vaccines in different stages of development to fight COVID-19. On Monday afternoon, volunteers received their first dose at Shulan Hospital.

The hospital posted a recruiting announcement on its account on WeChat, a social media platform, on June 24.

Globally, there are almost 150 vaccine candidates under development now, of which 17 are undergoing human trials. Researchers can leave the research center after confirming the absence of any abnormality. The shot also won approval for human testing in Canada. Many scientists also made outlandish claims. On vaccines, he said several candidates are being studied and "hopefully there will be doses available by the beginning of next year". The proactive support and guidance from the CDSCO has enabled approvals to this project. Half a dozen Indian firms are developing vaccines.

She called on the FDA to release any data it may use to approve any covid-19 vaccine.

Expedited through national regulatory protocols, the company said it accelerated its objective in completing the comprehensive pre-clinical studies and added results from these studies have been promising and show extensive safety and effective immune responses. Dexamethasone, an already approved steroid, has also been shown helpful in treating covid-19 patients on ventilators, and has been recommended for some patients by the Infectious Diseases Society of America.

"The difference between the strains present globally is something still being researched", a spokesperson for the vaccine maker told the BBC.

Among the few to have managed to reach advanced stages of trials, Moderna, which is entering Phase III of its trials in July for its mRNA-based vaccine, is optimistic of receiving FDA approval.

The main issue has been that Chinese companies have deliberately produced watered down vaccines that do not produce the desired immunity, presumably in an attempt to maximize profits.

This is the CanSino Biologics-Beijing Institute of Biotechnology product using the "non-replicating viral vector" design. The most significant of their developments is arguably the rotavirus vaccine Rotavac, a next-gen vaccine against a viral gastroenteritis that got pre-approval from the World Health Organization after an Oxford laboratory found it safe and efficacious.
