Russian vaccine recognized as the largest scientific breakthrough in Moscow since the collapse of the USSR


The Russian drug "Sputnik V" (Gam-COVID-Vac is a combined vector vaccine against coronavirus infection COVID-19) is probably the largest scientific breakthrough in Moscow since the collapse of the USSR, writes the American Bloomberg agency.


After The Lancet, the oldest (since 1823) and most famous in the medical community, published the results of the third phase of the Sputnik V clinical trials, interest in the Russian development has grown significantly. Its efficiency is about 92%, which is at the level of similar developments in the West and significantly exceeds the level of the drug from China (CoronaVac).

For "Sputnik V" a long time ago began to line up from countries wishing to receive it. Now it will increase even more. About 20 states, including Hungary, an EU country, have approved the drug for use, and more than 50 are going to do so in the near future, including Brazil and India with a giant population.

The process of considering a request for permission to use Sputnik V in the EU can take several months, which is relatively short, given the bureaucratic delays associated with the process of detailed examination of all information about the drug. According to the editor-in-chief of The Lancet, Richard Horton, the Russian vaccine will become widespread, "but it will not be fast."

At the same time, Moscow's influence in countries where the aforementioned vaccine will be used may significantly increase. Such a prospect cannot but cause concern, given that we are talking about entire continents, summed up the media from the United States.

    Probably, I will surprise many in the West: research on bacteria and viruses has never stopped. The department of microbiology usually has an electron microscope and three or four closed "rooms" around the city where there is a medical institute. Exceptions are Kazan, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Krasnodar. In the latter, T4 was turned into a unique weapon against bacteria.

    I will surprise you, but educated people in the West perfectly understand the level of Russian microbiology and virology, and ohloos is deeply purple.

      As an educated person, help clarify with BiondVax. As far as they understood, they have been developing a universal influenza vaccine there for 20 years. It seems that everything is written well by the beautiful marquis ...

      The drug has successfully passed five different early and mid-stage trials that demonstrate that the vaccine is safe and immunogenic against a variety of influenza strains.

      “An important contributor is the evolution of BiondVax from a biotech startup to a pharmaceutical company with the potential to generate significant growth and contribute to society. I would like to thank the Ministry of Economy and Industry for helping make the Biondwax vision a reality, ”said the doctor. Ron Babekoff, CEO of Biondwax.
      Following the update, BiondVax's share price rose 36%, hitting a 52-week high of $ 7,87 a share on Thursday morning.

      But ..., information came across that not everything was going smoothly with clinical trials, the effectiveness of the vaccine was not confirmed. Yes, and with the stock price, not everything is perfect, which, as it were, hints that success is in a fog.

    The Russian drug Sputnik V ... probably became ... writes the American agency Bloomberg

    I don't know about the drug, Bloomberg expresses its subjective opinion.
    I know for sure that last spring-summer-autumn Russia surpassed civilized countries in terms of the number of restrictions and all kinds of prohibitions beyond common sense. I especially "liked" the system of "export flights" with all registrations, uploading photos, a portal of state services, "we do not abandon our own!", "We are taking home", "brotherhood of muzzles" and so on.
    In June, my delight was aroused in Moscow by the "self-isolated" tenants' walking schedule introduced in Moscow and the "voting" on amendments to the dusty constitution that followed soon after.

      Found something to flaunt. Who is stopping you from forming your own opinion? Read to your health.

      Very interesting, how do you know this? Can you list the number of bans, preferably in comparison with the "civilized" countries? In some of them, the people are destroying everything in the streets, they are probably mad with fat smile

        Nobody bothers, and I have it for a long time.

        Can you list the number of prohibitions,

        I don’t even think about it! I try not to feed trolls like you too much

        probably mad about fat

        Well, yes, they, parasites, were given amendments to the constitution under the guise of a pandemic, and they began to rage :)

          Don't worry about my digestive system. Glad that you have your opinion. Will you share it?

          Well, yes, they, parasites, were given amendments to the constitution under the guise of a pandemic, and they began to rage :)

          Don't jump off the topic. Numerous riots and protests in Europe due to coronavirus restrictions is a fact, you cannot refute it. Therefore, there is nothing to answer. The myth about "civilized" countries is crumbling like a house of cards. All you have to do is grind your teeth and call names. Hence the conclusion you are the same troll wink

            Won't you share it?

            Don't you need the key to the apartment where the money is? I can't see you at close range :)
            I still have to share with all sorts of 4 thistropods :)

            Don't jump off the topic.

            I didn't "jump" on it. I expressed my opinion on what I read and how Russia survived the so-called "pandemic". What do you have to do with it and why? Go to the forest.

              Maybe then write on the wall at home? Why clutter up the chat here? Write for your own.
