Coronavirus vaccine by Pfizer-BioNTech could be available by end of 2020, claims top official

In an interview with CBS, Bourla stated the company would know where it stands with its potential vaccine by the end of October. The move came less than a week after the study was suspended following a reported possible side-effect in a United Kingdom patient.

The companies have submitted an amended protocol for their trials to the US Food and Drug Administration. The trials resumed after the Medicines Health Regulatory Authority confirmed that the trials are safe.

"The independent review process has concluded and following the recommendations of both the independent safety review committee and the United Kingdom regulator, the MHRA, the trials will recommence in the United Kingdom", it said.

"Let me tell you something".

The new trials of the vaccines will see volunteers receive aerosolised vaccines through a nebulizer, delivering the vaccine as airborne droplets through a mouthpiece.

Imperial's vaccine is also in clinical trials, although at an earlier stage.

Oh In Hye was immediately transferred to a nearby hospital after receiving first aid such as cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Actor Oh In-hye is said to be in a stable condition after being found unconscious in her home in Incheon on Monday morning.

"This new agreement could help us vaccinate millions of people across the country, as well as help create a United Kingdom vaccine manufacturing facility to speed up access to a potential Covid-19 candidate and boost the country's resilience against future pandemics", said Britain's Business Secretary Alok Sharma.

Although Oxford would not disclose information about the patient's illness due to participant confidentiality, an AstraZeneca spokesman said earlier this week that a woman had developed neurological symptoms that prompted the pause. Specifically, the woman is said to have developed symptoms consistent with transverse myelitis, a rare inflammation of the spinal cord.

Previous studies suggest that lower doses might be required than in intramuscular injections to give protection, the Imperial researchers said.

Dr. Nawal Al-Kaabi said that the UAE hosts a number of advanced clinical trial facilities, such as the ADNEC Center, which is considered one of the world's largest field clinics for trials, supporting the participation of 31,000 volunteers from 125 nationalities.

The World Health Organization has cited AZD1222, replication-deficient chimpanzee viral vector based on a weakened version of a common cold virus which contains the genetic material of the SARS-CoV-2 virus spike protein, as a leading contender in the race for a vaccine.
