World news – AU – COVID 19: An Australian vaccine is ready for the last phase of clinical trials


. .

Canberra: It has been announced that a Covid-19 vaccine is in development by the University of Queensland Australia (UQ) ready to advance to subsequent clinical phase trials ahead of schedule Friday, following promising results for phase 1.

Regulatory approval for a vaccine has been sought to advance to Phase 3 clinical trials before the end of the year, with a schedule for widespread distribution in late 2021, according to Xinhua News Agency..

Professor Paul Young, co-leader of the University of Queensland Vaccine Project and a leading Australian virologist, said that Phase 1 clinical trials have shown that the vaccine is safe and effective in eliciting an antibody response..

“Early data from a phase 1 clinical trial indicate that the vaccine is safe and well-tolerated when given, and there are very few adverse events when the vaccine is injected,” Young said.

« It also leads to a strong immune response, especially the neutralizing antibody response, which is equal to or greater than what was shown in patients who recovered from a live virus infection..

Additionally, Young said that lower doses of the vaccine have proven equally effective in stimulating the immune response, which means that manufacturing the vaccine will be more efficient in terms of number of doses..

The university has partnered with local biotechnology company CSL to conduct vaccine manufacturing, with the ability to rapidly produce tens of millions of doses at the Australian company’s facilities..

“Our national goal is to ensure that all Australians seeking vaccination are vaccinated by the end of 2021,” said Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt.
