Corona-News: A drug that makes hope

The London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) lists nearly 120 projects, the research on a vaccine. A few of the possible vaccines are already being tested in Phase I clinical trials on humans. This means that a small number of healthy Volunteers will be vaccinated in order to examine primarily the safety and tolerability of, and only to a lesser extent, the effectiveness.

Most of the research at the Hong Kong stock exchange-listed companies CanSino, whose vaccine is already being tested in the clinical phase II study is well advanced. That is, it is first tested on a larger test group, whether the vaccination acts. Before any market authorisation of large-scale, Phase III studies need to be successful.

Tests in Germany, China and the UK

In Germany, the first test phase starts with the company’s vaccine candidate for the Mainz-based biotechnology company BioNTech to 200 subjects.

To bring with vaccinations for the pandemic to a halt, and thus also permanently on safety precautions such as home and contact restrictions, waive, must have produced the vaccine in huge quantities, and mass imprisonment to be administered. The WHO and major pharmaceutical laboratories assume that it alone will take up to market maturity of a vaccine twelve to 18 months.

Some scientists are more optimistic. The British vaccine expert, Sarah Gilbert of Oxford University and her colleague, Frédéric Tangy from the French Pasteur Institute, for example, it is possible that already by the end of this year could be a vaccine ready for use.
