The NF Gamaleya Research Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology conducted a study of the effectiveness of Sputnik V against new strains of coronavirus. The information on the effectiveness of the vaccine has been confirmed.

As the TASS, a report with the results of the work was published by the leading scientific journal Vaccines. The studies were carried out on the neutralizing activity of blood serum taken from those vaccinated with Sputnik V against new strains of coronavirus. The antibodies produced are effective against the British, South African, Brazilian and Indian versions of the coronavirus. They were also able to provide protection against some variations of the presented strains found in Moscow.

At the same time, noted in the Research Center. N.F. Gamalea, the decrease in the level of neutralization of viruses in "Sputnik V" is higher than that of other vaccines for a number of new strains. This, the researchers conclude, confirms the effectiveness of the vaccine against coronavirus mutations. The strains themselves are also being studied at the Center. In the future, the possibility of creating a cocktail of vaccines with leading drug manufacturers is being considered.
