A vaccine that could come in handy to prevent novel coronavirus (COVID-19), has a greater probability that it will be produced from the Serum Institute of India here.

The institute, which is deemed as the world’s biggest manufacturer of vaccines by volume, is quietly working on several formulas, in addition to mass-producing the AstraZeneca/Oxford University project, as well as manufacturing its own.

Meanwhile it was reported that University of Oxford’s COVID-19 clinical trial has just a 50% possibility of success rate as the coronavirus is by all accounts dwindling in Britain, the professor heading the research of the vaccine shared to the Telegraph paper.

Adrian Hill, director of Oxford’s Jenner Institute, which has collaborated with drugmaker AstraZeneca Plc to build up the vaccine, said that a forthcoming preliminary, including 10,000 volunteers is anticipated to produce no results because of low transmission of COVID-19 in the surrounding areas.

It’s a race against the virus disappearing, and against time”, Hill stated. “At the moment, there’s a 50% chance that we get no result at all.”

The experimental vaccine, labelled as ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, is one of the most anticipated one in the global race designed to combat against the novel coronavirus triggering the COVID-19 pandemic.
Hill’s researchers began preliminary human trials of the vaccine in April, marking it the only one to have reached that milestone.

In the beginning of the year, scientists claimed they were “80% confident” about the vacccine potentiality. And said it would be proved it’s efficacy by the end of the autumn, making it one of the successful candidates globally.
