Indian scientist prepares corona vaccine, human trial begins
Professor Sumi Biswas has worked with Professors Adrian Hill and Sarah Gilbert at the Jenner Institute at Oxford University. Let me tell you that the Corona vaccine prepared by Professor Adrian Hill and Sarah Gilbert is currently in the final stages of the trial. At the same time, Sumi formed the company SpyBiotech in 2017. The Spybiotech company has prepared a new vaccine for Corona.
Human trials (phase one and two) of the experimental corona vaccine of the Spybiotech company have been launched in Australia. Oxford professor and company CEO Sumi Biswas said that several hundred people would be given vaccine supplements during the two phase trials.
In the new vaccine, hepatitis B antigen virus-like particles have been used as carriers to which the corona virus spike proteins are associated. Only through this, immunity will develop in the body. Sumi Biswas has a PhD from Oxford and has worked with the Jenner Institute for many years to develop a malaria vaccine. Sumi moved to the UK in 2005 after studying microbiology from Bangalore University.
SpyBiotech has tied up with the Serum Institute to license the vaccine. Earlier, the Serum Institute has also tied up with the AstraZeneca company for the production of Oxford’s first Corona vaccine. Under this, the Serum Institute will prepare a dose of one billion vaccines. The Spybiotech company has so far raised about $ 19.8 million through funding. This funding has been done by Oxford Sciencenage Innovation and GV.
