The U.S. Army will begin testing the Covid-19 vaccine developed by the Army on adult volunteers. Researchers say the vaccine can prevent multiple coronavirus mutations.
Army doctors plan to begin protein-based shooting tests on up to 72 adults aged 18 to 55 at the Walter Reed Army Institute in Silver Spring, Maryland, on Tuesday. The research team will test whether the vaccine can safely induce the immune response required by the research subjects.
The preliminary results of the study may be announced before midsummer. Kayvon Modjarrad, director of the Institute’s Department of Emerging Infectious Diseases, said that if the data is positive, the Army may try to cooperate with a pharmaceutical company to further test and develop the vaccine.
Experimental lenses are dozens of lenses under development, many of which are designed to improve usable lenses. According to BioCentury, 229 human vaccine trials are ongoing and the research is ongoing.
Army researchers say their vaccine has a protective effect in the study of monkeys exposed to the coronavirus.
