The COVID-19 vaccine landscape has three to four dozen contenders. Multiple companies such as Moderna Therapeutics, Inovio Therapeteutics, Janssen, and Sanofi Pasteur are working on their own hopeful candidates. Academic groups are also pushing forward with firm footing. Indeed, one example comes from an announcement today from scientists at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine that their vaccine candidate produces antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 in mice, at quantities thought to be sufficient for neutralizing the virus.

Two important characteristics set this vaccine apart. First, the vaccine is delivered through a fingertip-sized patch. Second, the data regarding the vaccine’s efficacy represent the first peer-reviewed study that describes a candidate vaccine for COVID-19.

The paper titled, “Microneedle array delivered recombinant coronavirus vaccines: Immunogenicity and rapid translational development” appears in EBioMedicine... More of this in the GEN – Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News Blog.
