Coronavirus : Russian vaccine Sputnik V to be given to 100 Indian volunteers
New Delhi : Deadly coronavirus has been completed almost a year worldwide, but we have not yet found an effective cure. Work is underway on dozens of Corona vaccines worldwide, but how long it will take to reach effective corona vaccines to people is difficult to say.
At the same time, India gave permission to test the Russian Sputnik V vaccine. Now the Russian Sputnik V vaccine against Corona will be tested on 100 volunteers in India. The General Controller of Indian Medicine (DGCI) gave this information. DGCI has given permission to the laboratories of pharmaceutical company Dr. Reddy to conduct the test. However, the test date and time will be determined by the company.
Sputnik quoted the organization as saying that two clinical trials would be conducted before reaching the third stage of vaccination. At the same time last week, the expert committee of DGCI recommended permission to Dr. Reddy’s laboratories for the second phase of clinical trials.
According to the government official, Dr. Reddy Lab has said that 100 volunteers can be included in the second phase of clinical trials, while the number may be 1400 for the third phase trials.
The pharma company will then present the second phase of safety and immunogenicity data, it will be analyzed by experts and they can proceed to the third critical phase.
Dr. Reddy’s Lab of India has partnered with the Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) for the clinical trials as well as distribution of Sputnik V vaccine.
