Preparing to inject Nanocovax phase two trial 7

Nearly 200 volunteers were screened on the morning of February 25 at the Military Medical Academy to select about 50 people to receive the second phase of the Nanocovax vaccine trial tomorrow.

Associate Professor, Dr. Chu Van Men, Director of the Center for Clinical Trials and Bioequivalence, Military Medical Academy, said on February 25 that nearly 200 people from February 24 to now have registered to participate.

`We hope to filter and select about 50 people eligible for phase two trial injection tomorrow. The actual number of injections may also be less to ensure the testing process,` Mr. Men said.

According to the plan, phase two will test the vaccine on 560 people.

Dr. Men said implementing the trial in two separate provinces helps increase the ability to recruit volunteers and speed up research progress.

At this stage, experts will evaluate the immunogenicity and effectiveness of the vaccine in preventing Covid-19.

`We will blind the study codes, meaning doctors and volunteers will not know whether they receive the vaccine or a placebo,` Mr. Men said.

He also said that placebos are made up of many types of excipients, used to prepare vaccines that have been injected into the community.

Nanogen company employees conduct the research and preparation stages of Nanocovax at its headquarters in District 9, Ho Chi Minh City.

Participating in the second phase trial, volunteers are free of charge and their health status is monitored.

Nanocovax is a Covid-19 vaccine developed by Nanogen, tested on humans from December 17, 2020.

The Nanocovax clinical trial process is expected to be completed by the end of 2021. After being licensed, Nanogen plans to produce 50-70 million doses of Nanocovax a year, initially ensuring enough domestic demand, then

The number of vaccines produced by Nanogen is expected to be used in the fourth quarter of 2021 to the second quarter of 2022, out of a total of 90.5 million doses of the 7th round of Covid-19 vaccine supply in Vietnam, according to the plan from the Steering Committee.
