Storyline


China's COVID-19 vaccine trial, the first such vaccine to reach phase one clinical trial, has been found to be safe, well-tolerated, and able to generate an immune response against SARS-CoV-2 in humans, according to a study published online Friday by the medical journal The Lancet.

The open-label trial in 108 healthy adults demonstrates promising results after 28 days and the final results will be evaluated in six months, The Lancet said in a press statement.

Further trials are needed to tell whether the immune response it elicits can effectively protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection, said the medical journal.

The trial demonstrates that a single dose of the new adenovirus type 5 vectored COVID-19 (Ad5-nCoV) vaccine produces virus-specific antibodies and T cells in 14 days, making it a potential candidate for further investigation.

A randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase two trial of the Ad5-nCoV vaccine has been initiated in the central Chinese city of Wuhan to determine whether the results can be replicated. And if there are any adverse events up to six months after vaccination in 500 healthy adults: 250 volunteers given a middle dose, 125 given a low dose, and 125 given a placebo as a control, according to The Lancet.

Richard Horton, editor-in-chief of The Lancet, shared the result on Twitter, saying "These results represent an important milestone".
