Oxford University's Covid-19 vaccine opens for clinical trial

Mar 30, 2020 09:17 IST

In the race to find a vaccine against the novel coronavirus, the University of Oxford has begun screening healthy volunteers between the age of 18 and 55 for a human trial. The trial will involve over 500 volunteers to assess the safety of the vaccine and to see if it fights Covid-19 by generating an immune response. The particular vaccine technology has been chosen as it may generate a strong immune response in one dose and is safer to administer to varied age groups, say the scientists.
