As we reported earlier, Cambridge University intends to start clinical trials of its vaccine against coronavirus in autumn.
“A Cambridge-developed vaccine candidate against SARS-CoV-2 could begin clinical trials in the UK in late autumn or early next year, thanks to a £1.9million award from the UK government,” the message said.
Thus, the Cambridge vaccine, DIOS-CoVax2, is based on DNA. The structures of the antigens are coded by synthetic genes that might reprogram the immune system to produce antibodies against the coronavirus.
