Russia claims the world’s first COVID-19 vaccine after successful Human trials. Vadim Tarasov, the Director of the Institute for Translational Medicine and Biotechnology, told the trials of vaccines are done which was developed by the Gamaleya Institute, an epidemiology research center in Moscow.
The Russian Health Ministry allowed human trials for the vaccine. The first set of human trials was done on 18 people on June 18 and the second set of people of 20 were done on June 23 at the Practical Research Centre for Interventional Cardiovasology, Sechenov University said.
The first set of volunteers is discharged on July 15 and second set on July 20 respectively. In this challenge, human volunteers were deliberately infected by COVID-19 to test the vaccines. The participants differ in their severities so that the dosage can be tested accordingly which was approved by regulatory authorities.
This method has been followed for seasonal flu, typhoid, malaria and cholera earlier. Gilead Sciences, Oxford University’s researchers and American biotech company Moderna are developing the vaccine for COVID-19.
Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE’s vaccine is expected to get approval by 2020. Antiviral Remdesivir helps to reduce the risk of death on severely affected patients which were found by Gilead Sciences analysis. But its also cautioned that proper clinical trials have to be taken and proved to make Remdesivir a forefront.
