After scientists in Frankfurt discovered the weak point of the virus, and American and Belgian scientists managed to make antibodies that protect against kovid-19, researchers from the Roman company “Takis Biotech” announced another good news.
They claim to have created antibodies that could save thousands of lives around the world, and after testing on mice, they plan to test their vaccine on humans this year. Testing on humans is expected to begin in the fall, scientists say.
– As far as we know, we were the first in the world to demonstrate the neutralization of the virus with a vaccine – says Luigi Aurisicio from the company “Takis Biotech”, reports Avaz.
Although scientists around the world are trying to find a vaccine, Aurisicio says “this is not a competition”.
– If we combine our strengths and skills, together we can defeat the coronavirus. say scientists.
Italian scientists have injected a cloned genetic code into mice and say the results are encouraging. The potential vaccine led to a “strong antibody response” after 14 days, the scientists said.
Tests of the potential vaccine have so far been conducted at the National Institute of Infectious Diseases, but the company says they need support from the Italian government to conduct clinical trials.
