Russian Vaccine Safe Induces Antibody Response in Small Human Trials: Lancet study

Russian Vaccine Safe

Sputnik V, the Russian vaccine for coronavirus, shows an outcome for eliciting antibodies and has no severe unfavorable effects in the small human trials. The Lancet Journal had published its preliminary results on Friday. 

The preliminary results suggested that the non-randomized trial for the vaccine on 76 people has shown that two formulations have an excellent safety outline, which was detected for over 42 days. Within 21 days, they induce antibody responses. The first formulation was a frozen one and the second one was a lyophilized one. 

The frozen formulation is for extensive scale usage in the available worldwide supply. The lyophilized or the freeze-dried one is developed for supply hard to reach places. According to the researchers, the trials’ secondary results showed that within 28 days, a T cell response is also produced.

When the adenovirus vaccines enter human beings’ cells, it spikes their genetic code and prepares the body to recognize the virus and attack it when somebody gets affected.
