Step-by-step Approach Followed for Contracts, Approvals, Says Bharat Biotech After Brazil Suspends Covaxin Contract


The US House of Representatives has expressed solidarity with India in its fight against the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic and in a resolution urged the Biden administration to urgently facilitate Covid assistance to India.

Meanwhile, the US National Institute of Health has said that India’s Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech in collaboration with the Indian Council of Medical Research effectively neutralises both Alpha and Delta variants of coronavirus. The NIH said results of two studies of blood serum from people who had received Covaxin suggest that the vaccine generates antibodies that effectively neutralise the B.1.1.7 (Alpha) and B.1.617 (Delta) variants of SARS-CoV-2, first identified in the UK and India, respectively.

The top American health research institute, which has a history of strong scientific collaboration with India, also said that an adjuvant developed with funding from it has contributed to the success of the highly efficacious Covaxin, which has been administered to roughly 25 million people to date in India and elsewhere.
