US COVID-19 Vaccine Enters Final Stage Trial This Month

Moderna said it would enter the final stage of human trials for its COVID-19 vaccine.

“The US biotech firm Moderna said Tuesday it would enter the final stage of human trials for its COVID-19 vaccine on July 27, after promising early results were published in an influential journal,” NDTV News reports.

“The Phase 3 trial will recruit 30,000 participants in the US, with half to receive the vaccine at 100 microgram dose levels, and the other half to receive a placebo.”

“It is designed to show whether the vaccine is safe and can prevent infection by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, or — if people still get infected — whether it can prevent the infection from progressing toward symptoms.”
