CanSino Biologics has announced that the National Medical Products Administration of China (NMPA) granted approval for the clinical trial application of its COVID-19 mRNA vaccine in China, reports Biospectrumasia.
CanSinoBIO’s pre-clinical trial results
Pre-clinical trial results showed that CanSinoBIO’s COVID-19 mRNA vaccine can induce high-titer neutralizing antibody levels against multiple SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern (VOC) identified by the World Health Organization (WHO), including the Omicron variant, a highly transmissible and the most dominant strain circulating in China and globally.
Additionally, results showed that CanSinoBIO’s mRNA vaccine can induce neutralizing antibodies with greater cross-reactivity against global VOCs and provide stronger protection against infections caused by the circulating variants, compared to the original strain-based COVID-19 vaccines.
