The trial of the coronavirus vaccine was developed at Oxford University.it took three months to develop.Sarah Gilbert,department of vaccinology at Jenner Institute said that” Personally I have a huge degree of confidence in this vaccine”. she is also lead this research.
Elisa Granto, a microbiologist in Oxford who is selected for this coronavirus vaccine trail out of 800 candidates.she said that”I am a scientist, so I wanted to try to support the scientific process wherever I can since I don’t study viruses I felt a bit useless these days, so I felt like this is a very easy way for me to support the cause”.Coincidently she was injected on her 32nd birthday.
Take a look at how the coronavirus vaccine works:
- Scientists took the genes of the coronavirus spike protein.
- Put the genes into a harmless virus to make the vaccine.
- Now the vaccine injected into the patient,
- After entering into the cells the coronavirus vaccine starts to produce coronavirus spike protein.
- This leads the immune system to produce antibodies and activate killer ‘T’ cells to eliminate foreign particles from the body.
- The ‘T’ cells find the infected cells and destroy them.
- If the patient encounters coronavirus again, then the antibodies which present already in the patient’s body activated and “t” cells triggered to fight the virus.
Professor Andrew Pollard, director of Oxford Vaccine Group, leading the trial said “We are chasing the end of this current epidemic wave. If we don’t catch that, we would not be able to tell whether the vaccine works in the next few months. But we do expect that there will be more cases in the future because this virus has not gone away”.
Let’s hope for the best.beaacuse all mankind are desperately looking towards the end result of this coronavirus vaccine trials.
