According to the National Institutes of Health, India’s Covaxin successfully neutralises the Delta
version of Covid.
According to the US National Institute of Health, India’s Covaxin, developed by Bharat Biotech in
partnership with the Indian Council of Medical Research, successfully neutralises both Alpha and Delta
strains of coronavirus. According to the National Institutes of Health, two studies of blood serum from
people who received Covaxin suggest that the vaccine produces antibodies that effectively neutralise
the B.1.1.7 (Alpha) and B.1.617 (Delta) variants of SARS-CoV-2, which were first identified in the United
Kingdom and India, respectively.
The top American health research institute, which has a long history of strong scientific collaboration
with India, also stated that an adjuvant developed with its funding contributed to the success of the
highly effective Covaxin, which has been administered to approximately 25 million people in India and
elsewhere to date.
Adjuvants are chemicals that are created as part of a vaccine to improve immune responses and
increase the efficiency of the vaccine.
Covaxin is a non-replicating version of SARS-CoV-2 that induces the immune system to produce
antibodies against the virus. The vaccine is safe and well tolerated, according to published results from a
phase 2 trial, according to the NIH, which also stated that safety data from a phase 3 trial of Covaxin will
be released later this year.
