The world facing the coronavirus epidemic is now troubled by new variants. The coronavirus has been continuously changing its form since the beginning of the epidemic. In such a situation, some American researchers have designed a special vaccine for protection. This vaccine will protect against SARS-CoV-2 as well as other coronaviruses. It is being called a universal vaccine, which will work on all types of variants. Also, it will help in preventing any such pandemic in the future.
What does the research say?
In the study, this vaccine has been described as a second-generation vaccine, which attacks Sarbecovirus.
Two variants of this family have not caused havoc all over the world in the last two decades.
When this vaccine was tested on mice, the vaccine developed many such antibodies that could counter many spike proteins.
It has been told in the study that this vaccine will have the power to prevent any kind of outbreak.
Researchers say that our plan is still working. If this goes right, we can make a universal vaccine.
Effective on other variants
Researchers at the University of North Carolina found that the coronavirus that caused SARS and Kovid in 2003 will always be a threat. In such a situation, researchers have prepared a new vaccine. According to the results of trials conducted on mice, the vaccine protected the mice from not only Covid-19 but also other variants.
The vaccine targets Sarbecovirus. It is part of the larger family of Corona. Also, after spreading SARS and Kovid-19, it remains necessary for virologists. The special thing is that the team has used mRNA in it, which is similar to Pfizer and Moderna Vaccine.
Trial on humans next year
When mice were given this hybrid vaccine, it effectively produced neutralizing antibodies against different spike proteins. Researchers have expressed hope that after further testing, this vaccine can also be brought to human trials next year.
