Oxford University’s vaccine test for COVID -19 trials has promised a valuable result aid and had shown signs by test on the rhesus macaque monkeys’ immune systems to fend off the deadly virus and had not shown further adverse effects.
Oxford University’s Covid-19 vaccine test on monkeys shows a positive promise LONDON: The UK’s largest Covid-19 vaccine project is currently being tested by the University of Oxford, has shown some promising results in a test with a variety of monkeys.
Since the entire world is suffering from this global pandemic, it has been now important to develop the vaccine and bring an end to this deadly disease.
Researchers who have been involved with the COV-19 trials informed that the vaccine had shown the positive signs on the rhesus macaque monkeys’ immune systems to fend off the deadly virus and shown no further indications of its adverse effects.
According to the reports, which has to be reviewed, the single vaccination proved to be enough for preventing the infection from lungs– as it is the main organ affected by the deadly virus.
“The scientist observed a significant decrement in the viral load in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and respiratory tract tissue of all the vaccinated animals that are challenged with SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19).
They also found that after exposing the animals to high levels of the coronavirus, none of the monkeys that were earlier vaccinated developed viral pneumonia.
Also there were no symptoms that proved to be vulnerable to animals. This development has been examined as encouraging results for a vaccine currently its experiments are to done on humans.
Although the scientist claimed that the vaccine’s response on humans has to be further checked.
“The results on animals show the positive signs and also support the current vaccination on the animals a fruitful one, These results are further expected to prove accuracy,” told Dr. Penny Ward, who is the regular visiting professor in the pharmaceutical medicine at King’s College, London.
Sarah Gilbert, professor of vaccinology at the University of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, is a senior officer, she claimed that she has the uttermost trust on the vaccine and this shall truly be the first vaccine to fight against the novel coronavirus.
The main step that has to be kept in mind is that the people who are been vaccinated further to not get the disease in the future.
This vaccine has gained support from all the countries and now its execution on humans is to be further checked. If this vaccine proves to be the one to fight against the novel coronavirus, the world shall heal from the current epidemic soon.
