Akdoğan gave information about domestic vaccine studies supported by TÜSEB in the process of combating Covid-19.
Akdoğan said about the projects, “Currently, 6 different vaccine development projects supported by TÜSEB are being carried out in Erciyes, Hacettepe, Yıldız Teknik, Marmara, Atatürk and Akdeniz universities.”
In these studies Erciyes Universityvaccine candidate Do-2 Akdoğan, who stated that he is at the stage, continued as follows:
“Studies are still in progress at the university. Today’s science is the technology of tomorrow. Therefore, scientific processes are continuing for the development of vaccines. We hope that the vaccine will come as soon as possible. In this regard, both scientists, TÜSEB and TÜBİTAK provided the necessary support for research and development very quickly. The studies continue for the vaccine developed at Erciyes University, we have a little more time to explain the preliminary results. “
Akdoğan stated that human experiments were basically evaluated in 3 stages, Phase-1, Phase-2 and Phase-3, and stated that work was carried out with a small group at the Phase-1 stage. Akdoğan said, “At this stage, studies such as 40-50 people are carried out with numbers of 10, whose security is checked, then the number reaches 100 when the phase-2 is passed. And when the phase-3 stage is reached, the numbers expressed in thousands” said.
“VACCINE TO BE APPLIED IN THE FORM OF NOSE SPRAY IS ALSO SUPPORTED”
