  • Chinese COVID-19 vaccine shows promise in human trials: Details here

China's military has approved a coronavirus vaccine for use within its ranks that has been developed by its research unit and a biotech firm, the company said Monday.

"The transfer of this technology will give us production autonomy", health ministry official Elcio Franco said, adding, "Brazil is trying to avoid situations like the ones that occurred at the start of the pandemic when high demand prevented us from accessing supplies and medicine".

It's big news for a couple reasons. The shot also won approval for human testing in Canada.

According to the Reuters' report, CanSino Biologics, in an exchange filing, said China's Central Military Commission has approved the use of the vaccine by the military on June 25 for a period of one year after the vaccine was found safe in clinical trials and showed some efficacy.

British and Chinese researchers are already chasing the coronavirus beyond its borders, testing possible vaccines in Brazil and the UAE because there are too few new infections in the home to elicit clear answers.

CNBG on June 23 announced an agreement with authorities in the United Arab Emirates to start phase-3 clinical trials for inactivated vaccine candidates. The company's phase 2 is still ongoing.

"Phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials for Ad5-nCoV have been conducted".

"People who received two doses of the vaccine at an interval of 28 days, saw their neutralizing antibody positive conversion rate reach 100 percent", experts maintained. Among those who received medium to low doses, only half developed sufficient neutralizing antibodies.

The vaccine uses an adenovirus, which normally causes the common cold, as a vector.

Only if the virus begins to spread through a community several weeks after the volunteers receive a vaccine or a dummy vaccine, long enough for the immune system to speed up, scientists have the best chance of comparing which group had the most diseases. In addition to the planned USA -run study, Brazil last week began a last-stage test of the Oxford shot in 5,000 health workers, the first experimental COVID-19 vaccinations in South America.

Canada is now running phase 2 trials on the same vaccine with 500 participants.

Folks on 6 continents now are acquiring jabs in the arm as the race for a vaccine enters a defining summer months, with even even bigger research poised to confirm if any shot actually performs - and probably supply a actuality test.
