According to the journal, the new COVID vaccine is based on the vesicular stomatitis virus, while the antigen is aimed at boosting the body’s immune response and boosting the immune response to the virus in vaccinated people, it does not consist of a full spike protein, but only a part of it.
The spike protein antigen is delivered to the body, and it is not produced in the body after preparation, as is the case with other COVID vaccines.
Germany and an innovative COVID vaccine. Rat tests
The Germans have already tested the new COVID vaccine in mice, and the results of the study are published in the journal Plos Pathogens.
According to scientists at the Paul Ehrlich Institute, a single dose of the innovative COVID vaccine significantly increased the number of antibodies neutralizing the effects of the coronavirus.
The study showed that the administration of the COVID vaccine to mice was aimed at protecting the animals with “very high efficacy against symptomatic infection”.
