Russian scientists have tested the coronavirus vaccine. According to preliminary data, the result was successful.

As the Interfax, drug development and testing were carried out at the Gamalei Research Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology. According to the director of the institute, Alexander Gunzburg, there are no negative effects, the subjects gained immunity. Gunzburg did not disclose how many of his employees were given the vaccine, saying only that they were the organizers of preclinical studies, the developers themselves and the technologists.

The vector vaccine is based on the adenovirus DNA into which the coronavirus gene is integrated. Adenovirus is used to deliver the coronavirus gene to cells to trigger protein synthesis of the new coronavirus and make the immune system work with the new pathogen.

Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Health said that now they are preclinical trials vaccines, which may appear at the end of July. According to him, several laboratories are engaged in development at once. Among them are state and private developers.
