A coronavirus vaccine created at Moscow State University is included in the list of promising WHO
On May 22, the World Health Organization (WHO) included a vaccine against coronavirus infection, developed at Moscow State University named after MV Lomonosov, in the list of promising ones.
Biologists from Moscow State University based on plant viruses have created several prototypes of a multivalent vaccine against coronaviruses that cause diseases such as Covid-19, SARS, MERS and bat coronaviruses, which have the potential to overcome the interspecific barrier with humans. That is, the multivalent vaccine being developed may possibly be able to refute the notion that “a vaccine is always a weapon against yesterday’s war.”
Commenting on the development of university scientists, the rector of Moscow State University V.A. Sadovnichy noted that the use of plant viruses to create modern recombinant vaccines against human infections is a modern and promising approach, in the development of which Moscow State University is at the forefront of world science.
