I must say that the progress is happening rapidly on the vaccine front. In fact, doses of the potential Coronavirus vaccine developed by Oxford University have arrived at the Bharatiya Vidyapeeth Medical College for Phase 2 clinical human trials.

These trials are expected to start on Wednesday itself and it will target around 350 respondents who will be tested before administering the vaccine. Based on the results of the test sample, the sample list will b e expanded for granular results.

The human trials in India are being handled by the Serum Institute, which is part of the Poonawala group of Pune. It has the mandate to manufacture the potential Coronavirus vaccines once they are approved after human trials.

It may be recollected that the potential vaccine developed by Oxford Research will be jointly manufactured by Serum in association with AstraZeneca PLC of UK. Serum also has a huge financial commitment in this venture.
