China conducts clinical trial for Corona virus vaccine

Major general Chen Wei is leading the trial in Wuhan and was the first person to be given a shot

China has begun the first section of a clinical trial for a novel coronavirus vaccine, data show, as the world's scientists race to discover a way to fight the sometimes lethal pathogen. The vaccine is made from a harmless virus, an adenovirus, which has been altered to produce the surface spike protein of the coronavirus after vaccination, to prime the immune system to recognise and attack the coronavirus.

"Amid a global health emergency, the U.K.is using all its extensive research expertise to develop new vaccines to target this worldwide threat quickly".

This kind of tracker is a good resource for anyone looking to keep tabs on the ongoing work that people are doing to take on COVID-19, though it's a high-level view that is probably of most interest to other ongoing projects, as well as health and research professionals who might be able to assist in the development of these solutions, or to collaborate with partners.

The six projects receiving funding are supporting and encouraging the UK's world-class researchers and experts to speed up coronavirus research including developing new vaccines and treatments.

The researchers behind what is expected to be UK's first coronavirus vaccine stated that since similar vaccines that were developed in the past for other diseases proved safe in human testing, the overall process could be accelerated.

A clinical trial has started in the United Kingdom to test if existing or new drugs can help patients hospitalised with confirmed COVID-19.

According to KDKA, the scientists modified the measles vaccine by attaching the genetic material of the novel coronavirus to the modified vaccine, which had been in use for years.

A £20 million Covid-19 rapid research response fund has been announced by the Department of Health and Social Care.

.

This project will test a library of approximately 1,000 drugs on cells in the laboratory to determine if any can reduce the toxic effects of novel coronavirus infection.

The virus is believed to have originated from Wuhan, China.

This could identify promising drugs for further testing and clinical trials in 12 months.
