The world health organization (who) has included in the list of candidate vaccines against COVID-19 first Russian project. We are talking about the vaccine, Saint-Petersburg Institute of vaccines and serums FMBA Russia, which is a recombinant protein based on surface epitopes of the S protein of SARS-CoV-2.
Currently Spbniivs completed the first phase of testing on animals. The proven ability of vaccines to generate specific immune response to SARS-CoV-2.
The selected platform (recombinant proteins) is already implemented in practice in global health, which significantly increases the probability of success develop an effective and safe drug against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, noted in Spbniivs.
A list of candidate vaccines is based on monitoring by who of the ongoing developments around the world. Who is requesting the documents (the research results), after analysis, which takes the decision on inclusion or non-inclusion of the ongoing development of the list, which is actually a confirmation of the prospects of the current work.
