A phase-1 trial using a single dose of a vaccine (Ad5-nCoV) that uses a recombinant adenovirus type-5 vector that carries the genetic material that codes for spike glycoprotein of novel coronavirus was found to be safe, well-tolerated and able to generate immune responses against the virus. It protected mice from lung infections.
Companies that pass phase one trials, including Oxford and Moderna, will shift to massive phase two trials rather than the small trials that are typical.
There were side effects - primarily pain, muscle aches and fever - but they subsided within 28 days, and no serious or risky side effects were reported.
"This project is for the human race, not just Thais".
It's not yet clear whether the shot - if it proves effective - will be available in the U.S., and the Department of Health and Human Services had not responded to request for comment at the time of publication. The company only provided limited results for eight of the 45 volunteers who received multiple doses of the RNA vaccine candidate and who developed neutralizing antibodies.

Major issues such as testing and safety measures would be addressed by the Return to Play committee. All remaining series would be best-of-seven.
To get there, leading vaccine makers have agreed to share data and lend the use of their clinical trial networks to competitors should their own candidate fail, the scientists said. Furthermore, half of the participants in the low- and middle-dosage groups and three-quarters of those in the high-dosage group showed neutralising antibodies against SARS-CoV-2.
According to the Reuters/Ipsos poll of 4,428 people, respondents who reacted negatively to a possible vaccine cited concerns that a fast approach to finding one could be unsafe, with 40% saying they believed the vaccine is riskier than COVID-19.
Interleukin 7 is known to boost a certain kind of human immune system cell, known as a T-cell, which is vital for clearing the body of infection.
He has at times downplayed the seriousness of the pandemic and encouraged public protests against his government's own stay-at-home guidelines meant to slow the pathogen's spread. Most subsided within a couple of weeks, and nearly all resolved by the end of the study.
A poll conducted by Donald Trump's former favourite United States tv news network, Fox News, reveals the stark reality of the president's decline in popularity in the middle of the current coronavirus pandemic and his altogether bleak re-election chances in November.

Faul stated that the fixtures, if played, would offer a match needed injection for CSA's finances . With Chris (Nenzani), you would want a full commitment on paper and then proceed.
Side effect profiles may be particularly important to getting people to get vaccinated against coronavirus once one is available. The results were published in the journal The Lancet.
"The clinical studies are progressing very well and we are now initiating studies to evaluate how well the vaccine induces immune responses in older adults and to test whether it can provide protection in the wider population", said Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group.
"From this data alone, it is not possible to tell how much antibodies have been formed and how long they will last", he said.
Dr. Anthony Fauci expressed "cautious optimism" about the initial results from a coronavirus vaccine trial - results that were widely celebrated this week - and says it remains "conceivable" that a vaccine for the deadly pathogen could be available by the end of the year.

The space shuttle programme was retired four decades after it began service, a prime reason was the high cost of maintenance. With American shuttles no longer in use, the United States has had to rely on Russian Federation for rides to the station.
