Coronavirus vaccine trials successfully completed in Russia
The study of the world's first vaccine from COVID-19 by volunteers at Sechenov University was successfully completed. The first group of volunteers will be discharged on Wednesday, the second on July 20, Vadim Tarasov, director of the Institute of Translational Medicine and Biotechnology at Sechenov University, told RIA Novosti.
Clinical trials at the university began on June 18. They stated that the safety of the coronavirus vaccine was confirmed during testing. Earlier, Sechenov University said that volunteers who test the coronavirus vaccine “generally” tolerate it well. In total, 38 people participate in the research. The Ministry of Defense also reported positive results earlier.
Health Minister Mikhail Murashko said research was underway on 17 promising vaccines. According to him, vaccination in Russia will be voluntary. For more details, see Kommersant FM, “Vaccination is gaining supporters.”
Russia will begin testing a covid vaccine on paid volunteers next week, writes The Moscow Times.
Vadim Tarasov, the director of the institute that will conduct the study, explained that 50 volunteers were selected, and those who will participate in the study until the end will be paid 100,000 rubles ($ 1,450). Those who participate only partially will be rewarded with 20,000 rubles ($ 288). The vaccine was developed by a state-owned research institute.
The study, which will begin on June 7, is open to "healthy women and men, aged 18-60," according to documents distributed earlier this week on social media by students at a medical university in Moscow. Tarasov confirmed the authenticity of the test guide and the online registration form.
In the first phase of the study, participants will be isolated at a medical unit in Zvenigorod, a city 50 km from Moscow, on June 9-22. The vaccine will be administered to participants only in the second phase, which will take place between June 23 and July 20, and the volunteers will be transferred to a research center in Moscow.
Russia ranks third in the world in the number of coronavirus cases, with more than 440,000 patients. On Thursday, 8,831 new cases and 169 deaths were confirmed.
Russia is the first country in the world to register a Covid-19 vaccine, President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday, although the vaccine has not been mass-tested on humans and there is little public information about its effectiveness.
On Tuesday's government meeting, however, Putin said the vaccine had been shown to be effective in initial tests and provided long-term immunity.
International and Russian experts reacted with skepticism to the decision of the Moscow authorities to approve the use of a vaccine without it having passed the so-called third phase of testing, consisting of tests on thousands of people. Moreover, the fact that the vaccine was registered in Russia does not mean that it is internationally approved.

The company AstraZeneca announced Monday that late-stage trials of its vaccine developed with the University of Oxford against COVID-19 were "highly effective" in preventing the disease, giving public health officials hope that they may soon have access to a vaccine that is easier to distribute than some of its pharmaceutical rivals.
The results are based on an interim analysis of trials in the UK and Brazil of the vaccine developed by the University of Oxford and manufactured by AstraZeneca. No hospitalizations or serious cases of COVID-19 were reported among those who received the vaccine.
"These findings show that we have an effective vaccine that will save many lives," said Professor Andrew Pollard, the trial's principal investigator. "It's exciting that one of our dosing regimens is around 90% effective," he added.
AstraZeneca is the third major pharmaceutical company to report late-stage results of its potential COVID-19 vaccine as the world eagerly awaits vaccines that will end the pandemic that has killed nearly 1.4 million people.
Two other drug makers, Pfizer and Moderna, reported preliminary results from the last stage of their testing last week, showing that their COVID-19 vaccines were nearly 95% effective.
