The vaccine of a US company produces antibodies in volunteers and makes them immune to disease.
It is the first vaccine against Covid that has been tested on humans, and not only is it well tolerated, but it also produces an immune response that can protect against infection by the virus. This sensational result has been announced by the US pharmaceutical company Moderna in Cambridge Massachusetts on Monday.
Although initially only eight healthy patients were tested with the active substance, all of them produced antibodies against the virus – and these antibodies, which were subsequently removed from them, were able to prevent the virus from multiplying in a human cell culture: This is primarily the of an effective vaccine.
The company announced that from now on, the tests will be continued at “increased speed”. Within the next few days, tests on 600 test persons will be started, and in July tests on several thousand persons will follow. If the successful tests continue as planned, Moderna believes that a ready-to-use vaccine can be expected by the end of the year or the beginning of 2021.
