A vaccine developed by the Statens Serum Institut has shown promising results in mice.
It writes in a press release.
the Vaccine has been given the name CoVAXIX, and describes that it has 'had great success in experiments with mice'.
Now you must to test it on monkeys.
It may or may not be ready for testing on people already in the year.
It is chefvirolog, professor and chief physician dr. with. Anders Fomsgaard, who has led the development of the new vaccine.
- the Vaccine is very interesting, because has the potential to activate both arms of the immune system. It can provide both protective antibodies and celleimmunitet, says Anders Fomsgaard to Ekstra Bladet.
Thus protects the vaccine against both disease by eliminating the virus infected cells at the same time that it prevents new cells in to find a foothold in the body.
- It is highly desirable for vaccines, but far from all of the vaccines are able to do it, " says Anders Fomsgaard.
in technical terms, the new vaccine is a dna vaccine, which is to say, to prepare the human immune system to fight against viruses.
This is done by exposing the body to a small part of the virus' surface without the rest of the virus.
it also means that there is something infectious in the vaccine.
Anders Fomsgaard tells that you already are ahead of the coronapandemien was in the process of developing a universal flu vaccine using dna technology.
Why has the Statens Serum Institut quickly been able to saddle and directing the vaccine directly against the chinese coronaviruses. Ago WHO first mentioned corona virus 12. January, Anders Fomsgaard and his team work hard to target their new vaccine against the virus.
- We've worn pretty hard at it since January. We should have gensekvensen from China, before we could design the vaccine. It has been a lot of work.
According to the chefvirologen have viruslaboratoriet at the Statens Serum Institut work with the skeleton for the dna-vaccine in 25 years.
this is Why the new vaccine is also still far from the goal, and there are still many part, where the development can suffer setbacks.
Nevertheless, there is a cautious optimism that the track at Anders Fomsgaard.
- Our initial testing has shown that the vaccine can induce antibodies that neutralize SARS-CoV-2 with the same strength or greater strength than most people are immune after a successful covid-19 infection, he says.
If everything goes straight, can a final attempt, among randomly selected persons first start in over a year and a half time.
But in spite of the many pits, there is perhaps still reason for optimism for the Danish vaccine.
Anders Fomsgaard has, at least earlier in the process demonstrated that he is thinking out of the box and is a problem solver.
As the world at the end of march desperately lacked testing kits, invented Anders Fomsgaard a practical 'æggetest', which in record time and without large paraphernalia can quickly determine whether a person has the corona or not.
