Chinese Scientists Develop Oral Vaccine to Beat Coronavirus

Wednesday, February 26, 2020 - 11:27

Chinese scientists have developed oral vaccine without having any side effects to beat new coronavirus.

Professor Huang Jinhai from Tianjin University announced that taken four doses of the drug will not have any side effects, Daily Mail reports.

However, the expert said the product was still 'far from' being sold on the market because it needed to pass animal tests and clinical trials.

The news was announced by Professor Huang Jinhai from the School of Life Sciences at Tianjin University and reported by state newspaper People's Daily.

The immunization uses food-grade saccharomyces cerevisiae, or baker's yeast, as the carrier and aims at the Spike protein of the virus, Prof. Huang said.

It helps people generate antibodies against the deadly virus.

The Spike protein, or S protein, is responsible for inducing the virus into the host cells inside a patient and is the key to tackling the infection, the expert explained.

Prof. Huang said he was looking for partners to help his team complete the project.
