Scientists have created a vaccine against COVID-19 in capsules




Israeli scientists have created the world's first vaccine against coronavirus infection in capsules. This is reported by The Jerusalem Post with reference to the pharmaceutical company Oramed Pharmaceuticals.





It is noted that the drug trials will take place at the Suraski Medical Center immediately after approval by the Ministry of Health, 24 volunteers who have not yet been vaccinated with another vaccine will participate in them. According to the publication, half of the group will take one capsule, the other two doses of the drug. The tests will last six weeks.

According to Nadav Kidron, CEO of Oramed Pharmaceuticals, this drug has several advantages compared to conventional coronavirus vaccines. Thus, the capsule is “more resistant to different strains of coronavirus”, unlike Moderna and Pfizer, it targets three structural proteins of the virus. Also, such drugs usually cause fewer side effects.

Kidron also added that such a vaccine is easier to deliver around the world. The CEO stressed that he will seek approval of the capsule vaccine in other countries if the tests are successful.
