  • COVID-19 CanSino’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate approved for military use in China

By Reuters• 29 June 2020

CanSino declined to disclose whether the inoculation of the vaccine candidate is mandatory or optional, citing commercial secrets, in an email to Reuters.

The experimental shot, developed by a Beijing-based unit of CNBG, has induced high-level antibodies in all the inoculated participants in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial involving 1,120 healthy people, according to preliminary data of the trial, CNBG said in a posting on the social media platform WeChat, without disclosing specific readings.

The company says that the formula; known as Ad5-nCoV, is now limited to use by military personnel, and can not be offered to a broader population without the approval of the Logistics Support Department, the division of the Central Military Commission which approved the military use of the vaccine.

Swaminathan said there are now more than 200 candidate vaccines, with 15 at the clinical trial stage.

CanSino said Monday that China's Central Military Commission approved the use of the vaccine on June 25, for one year. He has dismissed the severity of the disease and has shown indifference to the rising death toll while also pushing treatment using an unproven anti-malaria drug. The vaccine will prove to be a breakthrough to contain spread of Covid-19.

A coronavirus vaccine candidate that showed promise in the early stages of clinical trials has been approved for use with China's military.

Since the outbreak of the pandemic, a global race has been under way for a vaccination against Covid-19.

A vaccine would see potential profits for the medical and science industry, makers of medicine and researchers. This appears to be the first coronavirus vaccine to be made widely available to a segment of a population before finishing Phase 3 trials.

Germany and the United States are also leading candidates, with the latter boasting the largest number of vaccine-related projects.

Since first appearing in China last December, the virus has spread to at least 188 countries and regions.
