Panel Recommends Oxford COVID Vaccine Partner For Phase 2,3 Human Trial

J&J's COVID-19 vaccine generates positive pre-clinical results

The DCGI has given approval to SII, Pune, to conduct Phase II+III clinical trials of Oxford University-Astra Zeneca COVID-19 vaccine (COVISHIELD) in India and this will hasten the development of the COVID-19 vaccine, the health ministry said in a statement. According to a report, after the registration by drug regulators, the vaccine would be approved for use in hospitalized patients within 3 to 7 days.

Speaking to journalists in Nizhny Novgorod, Murashko added that teachers and medical workers would be given priority for the vaccination program.

Industry and Trade Minister Denis Manturov told Russia's TASS news agency Monday that the country was expecting to manufacture several million doses of Covid-19 vaccines each month by the start of 2021.

"It's a Sputnik moment for many people who didn't expect Russian Federation to be the first", Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of Russia's RDIF sovereign wealth fund, told Abu Dhabi newspaper The National last week.

"In my opinion, there are other countries which are way ahead of Russian Federation when it comes to the production of the coronavirus vaccine and are still going through the testing stage".

Gamaleya's vaccine employs the adenovirus, a similar technology to the coronavirus vaccine prototype developed by China's CanSino, now in the advanced stage of clinical trials.

"I believe a vaccine that is not properly checked must not be registered, no matter in what country", he said.

Fourth week of anti-Kremlin protests at Russia's far
One factor fuelling protests is long-standing resentment among residents who feel ignored by Moscow. They were also held in other cities in the Russian Far East and Siberia on Saturday.

Previously it was reported that the vaccine production would commence in September.

The available data showed the safety and good tolerability of the vaccine, Zvezda said.

Russian Federation said Monday it aims to launch mass production of a coronavirus vaccine next month and turn out "several million" doses per month by next year.

In testimony before the U.S. Congress on July 31, Anthony Fauci, the United States' top infectious-diseases official, expressed concern about reported COVID-19 vaccines being developed in Russian Federation and China. Moscow and Beijing have rejected the allegations, claiming they weren't backed by evidence.

According to the latest data from John Hopkins University, Russia has a total of 849,277 confirmed coronavirus cases, the fourth highest in the world.

A report in The Atlantic explains that these vaccines will most likely protect against severe effects of the disease like blood clots, organ failures and others.
