Oxford Vaccine ‘Could Give Double Protection Against COVID-19’

LONDON – Human trials of a possible COVID-19 vaccine developed by scientists at Oxford have reportedly shown promising results.
The researchers believe they have made a breakthrough after discovering that the jab could provide “double protection” against the virus, the Daily Telegraph reported Thursday.
The newspaper said the phase 1 trial in healthy adult volunteers, which began in April, showed that the vaccine sparked an immune response, with blood samples indicating it stimulated the body to produce antibodies and “killer T cells.”
It came when British Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, said the teams were working to achieve the “best-case scenario” for an available vaccine sometime this year, although he admitted it was more likely in 2021.
David Carpenter, chairman of the Berkshire Research Ethics Committee, which approved the Oxford trial and continues to work with scientists on the amendments, told the Telegraph that the team was “completely on track.”
“They can strengthen the findings by targeting people in hospitals, health professionals, where the spread is most likely to occur,” he said.
“No one can set end dates … things could go wrong, but the reality is that by working with a large pharmaceutical company, that vaccine could be quite available in September and that’s the kind of goal they’re working on.”
But a source told the newspaper that the results have not yet shown that the Oxford vaccine, known as ChAdOx1 CoV-19, provides long-lasting immunity.
“I can tell you that we now know that the Oxford vaccine covers both bases: it produces an antibody and T-cell response,” the source said.
“It is the combination of these two that will hopefully keep people safe.
“So far, so good. It’s an important moment. But we still have a long way to go.”
Speaking at the ITV Peston on Wednesday night, Mr Hancock said: “We are all working towards the best of times, we are all giving AstraZeneca and the Oxford team, and the Imperial vaccine, all possible support We are working with the other potential vaccines worldwide, in the United States, Germany and the Netherlands.”
“We are working with them to make sure that if they come out first, we will have access to them here.”
“But this is an inexact science, and it is at risk.”
He said that the most clinically vulnerable, such as the elderly and health workers, would be the first to receive the vaccine.
“That is the principle established by the independent committee that oversees these things and about the clinical evidence,” he added.
On how the vaccine will reach people, Hancock said he is expanding the list of professionals who can legally vaccinate, which will include not only general practitioners but also technicians, nurses and pharmacists.
On June 19, the first healthy volunteer received a small dose of a possible COVID-19 vaccine developed by researchers at Imperial College London.
About 300 healthy participants are expected to participate in that trial.
The pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca reached an agreement with the Alliance of Inclusive Vaccines (VAT) of Europe to supply up to 400 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine from the University of Oxford, non-profit, with deliveries from the end of 2020.
