Russia publishes virus vaccine results, weeks after approval

Russia publishes virus vaccine results, weeks after approval

MOSCOW (AP) — Russian scientists have belatedly published first results from early trials into the experimental Sputnik V vaccine, which received government approval last month but drew considerable criticism from experts, as the shots had only been tested on several dozen people before being more widely administered.

In a report published in the journal Lancet on Friday, developers of the vaccine said it appeared to be safe and to prompt an antibody response in all 40 people tested in the second phase of the study within three weeks. However, the authors noted that participants were only followed for 42 days, the study sample was small and there was no placebo or control vaccine used.
===========================================================
Talk about being in a hurry. This was way off the normal protocol for getting a new vaccine approved.
 
Not sure I'd trust Putin to inject me with anything.

Indeed.

As an amusing historical sidebar, did you know that when the initial trials for Heroin were done, they found that it was completely non-addictive?

The trial was conducted on a very small number of people and (through a statistical fluke) ALL of them were what is known as "Heroin Immune" (which means that their body chemistry was such that the didn't get addicted).
 
Pompeo saw political motives in the rush of the Russian Federation and China to create COVID-vaccine.
"Created a vaccine for political motives" - an excellent wording for the psychiatrist's Handbook in the section " clinical cases of political americanism "
