Italy is the first nation that claims to develop the vaccine for Covid19. The pandemic covid19 is spreading rapidly across the globe. The deadly virus has led to over 303, 636 deaths, including 4,541,148 positive cases by May 2020. Recently, WHO has also released a statement that covid19 may never go.
To cope-up with the pandemic, the world has united hands to finding a vaccine for covid19. Medical researchers and scientists from around the world are in desperate search of their first breakthrough. At present, 111 potential vaccines for (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) SARS-CoV-2 are there in several phases of clinical trials.
Whilst, Italy is the first country that claims for the first vaccine of covid19. The scientists of Italy are claiming to discover a successful vaccine that produced antibodies in mice. These antibodies work on human cells. In Spallanzani Hospital, Rome, the vaccine is tested. The vaccine counteracts SARS-CoV-2 in the cells of humans.
After one vaccination, the mice advanced antibodies that can block the deadly virus from affecting the cells of humans. In this research, the scientists opted for two top candidates after observing the generation of a great number of antibodies in the first five candidates.
Impactful Breakthrough Vaccine Of Israel
A few days back, Naftali Bennett, Israeli Defence Minister, announced that the nation has a noticeable breakthrough in covid19 vaccine development. A monoclonal neutralizing/counteracting body is being developed by IIBR, Israel’s Institute for Biological Research, as per the saying of Naftali Bennett. This monoclonal neutralizing body will efficiently counteract the deadly coronavirus. And hence, the Israeli defense minister named it a significant breakthrough.
Covid19 Vaccine In The Oxford
Phase-1 of clinical trials of the covid19 vaccine on humans at Oxford University has started. -ChAdOx1 nCoV-19- the vaccine was developed that uses a depleted common cold virus strain (adenovirus) that has the infection you will find in Chimpanzees.
Oxford scientists have used the genetic material of deadly covid19 present on the virus surface for the vaccine to work successfully. Also, the scientists have put the genetic material in the virus.
Another integral treatment for helping people to recover from covid19 is plasma therapy. The plasma therapy makes use of transfusing the blood component, which people refer to as plasma from the human body. These bodies have recovered from the attack of the virus. The therapy helps in the quick start of passive immunity in the infected person. It also helps people with bodies that are not generating enough antibodies for curbing the disease.
In India, several hospitals are using plasma therapy to treat the patients of the novel coronavirus. These states include Rajasthan, UP, Delhi, Madhya Pradesh, And Maharashtra. As per the report of Delhi Health Minister, six severely ill covid19 patients have almost recovered after convalescent plasma therapy usage.
Hydroxychloroquine: The Effective Malaria Drug
The malaria drug came into limelight after US president Donald Trump requested India to supply their nation with hydroxychloroquine. Several clinical trials are underway regarding the drug.
According to the reports, hydroxychloroquine, malaria drug is the first-line covid19 treatment for patients in the US. It is so because the drug is having immune-calming and antiviral properties. As per Indian health experts also, it is the only remedy available for the deadly virus. The malaria drug has the fine potential to fight with the disease and can inhibit infection of SARS-CoV-2 in vitro. However, overdose and long-term use of hydroxychloroquine can result in poisoning.
Remdesivir refers to a drug for treating SARS and MERS (a disease that is caused by the family of coronavirus). In addition to this, it is the drug that was manufactured in 2014 for treating the Ebola virus. It is an effective drug that promises to speed-up recovery from the novel coronavirus.
The Combo Of HIV-Drug (ritonavir & lopinavir)
The combo of ritonavir and lopinavir that are of HIV-drug is one of the most lauded treatment methods for treating covid19 patients. For instance, A British national in Kerala, two Italian patients, were given a combo of anti-HIV drugs, ritonavir, and lopinavir tablets. After the HIV-Drug combo treatment, these patients had a negative test result for Covid19.
Drug Companies In Rhe USA
According to WHO, presently, there are eight vaccines of covid19 that have been listed in the human trial phase. Furthermore, pharmaceutical companies, BioNtech and Pfizer, have collaborated to start the clinical trials of their vaccine programmer, BNT162.
Moreover, the companies are working on RNA vaccines that penetrate human cells and notify cells on how to build coronavirus spike protein, but on the condition of without getting sick. Once your body recognizes that antigen, it will start developing protective antibodies.
Current Status Of Covid19 Vaccine In India
Narendra Modi, Prime Minister of India, has reviewed the vaccine status in the nation for the treatment of novel coronavirus. He is also keen on testing, diagnosis, and drug discovery.
Over 30 vaccines are undertrials in various stages of development. On the other hand, some of them are ready for clinical trials. Also, it is essential to note that Serum Institute of Pune, India, is the largest vaccine maker in the world. Moreover, India produces 60% of the vaccines in the whole world.
We are hoping and praying that soon the entire world finds the life-saving vaccine for covid19 with these ongoing clinical trials under process.
