Encouraging results of the corona vaccine developed by Oxford University;-otgnewsupdate

The good news about the corona virus is that the initial results of the corona vaccine, developed at the University of Oxford in the UK, are not only safe but also strengthen the body's immune system against the virus.

According to the British Broadcasting Corporation, the vaccine, developed at Oxford University, was tested on 1,077 people and injected into their bodies so that their bodies could produce antibodies and T cells (white blood cells). Who can fight the corona virus.

Remember that T cells are actually immune cells whose job is to fight infections in our body.

According to experts, the results so far are very promising, but at the moment it is not possible to say whether the vaccine is sufficient to protect against corona, so it is being tested on a large scale.

According to the report, the UK has pre-ordered 100 million vaccines.

Experts say the initial results are promising, but it is important to make sure that the vaccine is completely safe to give to people.

 Research is currently underway to determine whether the vaccine can prevent coronavirus infection in humans or simply reduce their symptoms.

Experts say that because the number of coronavirus patients in the UK is low, the vaccine will have to be tried in countries where the number of victims is much higher.

In the next phase, the vaccine will be tested on 10,000 people in the UK and in the United States, where 30,000 people will be vaccinated, while 5,000 in Brazil and 2,000 in South Africa. Will be done

The most important step in testing this vaccine will be 'challenge trials' in which the coronavirus will be deliberately injected into selected individuals after the vaccine is given and then the results of the vaccine and the immune response will be reviewed.

The Corona vaccine is being developed in collaboration with scientists from Oxford University and a pharma company, and its human experiment was launched in April.

The vaccine was made from a virus in monkeys
The vaccine is being developed at an unprecedented pace due to the rapid corona coverage in the world.

According to the report, this vaccine is being developed by genetically engineering a virus that causes common cold in chimpanzees (monkeys).

The virus has been modified to such an extent that it does not infect humans and even looks like a corona.

This means that the vaccine will be similar to the corona, and our body's immune system will learn how to fight the corona virus once the vaccine is introduced.

How long will the vaccine be available?
Experts say that even if the vaccine is declared to be fully effective, it will not be possible to manufacture it on a large scale by the end of this year, but if everything goes according to plan, the vaccine will be widely available by next year. Will be provided.

It is estimated that more than 690,000 people have died from the corona virus worldwide, while the number of infected patients is more than 14.6 million.

Various countries, including the United Kingdom, are working hard to develop the vaccine, and it is being tested on humans in various countries.
