Coronavirus Vaccine: 7 Participants Disqualified From Oxford Phase III Trial.

While the testing is seeing an active response from the public, recent reports have suggested that at least seven participants have been found ineligible for vaccine testing, as the Serum Institute of India began phase III testing at a government facility in Pune.

“All seven candidates who were selected on Monday have become ineligible due to various medical reasons, including antibody test coming positive for some…Some more candidates have been screened today (Tuesday) and if their results in the antibody and COVID-19 tests are negative and if they are eligible on other medical grounds, they will be administered vaccine candidate..” said officials.

Vaccine trials are going on in an unprecedented manner across India and the globe, considering the urgency of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most of the vaccines under contention right now are way into phase II and III of trials, with high hopes that we’ll see a vaccine ready by early months of 2021.
