U.S. “DNA Vaccine” Inoculated Monkeys May 21 at 12:27
After multiple monkeys used to determine the effect of a new type of vaccine called “DNA vaccine,” a group from Harvard University in the United States has compiled a study that found that genes for the new coronavirus were not detected after inoculation in a third of the total.
Dna vaccines are a new type of vaccine that allows the body to synthesize certain proteins and create antibodies that suppress the function of viruses by putting genes into the body, and groups such as Harvard Medical Center have developed six types for research, each of which was inoculated twice into rhesus monkeys to confirm its effectiveness.
As a result, both vaccines have increased the amount of antibodies in monkey’s blood to the same extent or even as humans recovered from the new coronavirus.
In addition, after being vaccinated, when it was confirmed whether the infection by injecting the liquid containing the virus from the nose and trachea, it is that the gene of the virus was not detected from the combined animal singing the vaccine of the kind.
The researchers say that a new type of vaccine may prevent infection in humans.
Although the DNA vaccine has been approved in some animals, it has not yet been put into practical use in humans, and clinical trials are underway in the United States as a vaccine for the new coronavirus.
The findings are published in the American journal Science on March 20.
