KARACHI: Oxford University researchers believe they have succeeded in developing a coronavirus vaccine.
According to the report, human trials have shown promising results, as the Oxford team found that their injection could provide double protection against the virus.
According to a report published in the Daily Telegraph, blood samples taken from volunteers in Phase One trials showed that the vaccine stimulated the body to make antibodies and T cells.
T cells play a central role in the body’s immune response. Sources told the newspaper that the mixture “hopefully will keep people safe”.
David Carpenter, chairman of the Berkshire Research Ethics Committee, who approved the Oxford trial.
He says the vaccine team is “on track”. No one can set a deadline, things can go wrong, but the fact is that working with a big pharma company, the vaccine may be quite available by September and that is the goal they are working on.
