Antibody levels are a good predictor for how effective Moderna Inc's COVID-19 vaccine is, according to a new study, a finding which could help speed up future clinical trials for vaccines against the disease. Regulators currently rely on large placebo-controlled studies to determine if a vaccine works, but the study, conducted by scientists showed that measuring the antibody levels in vaccine recipients could also determine effectiveness.

The study, which has not yet been peer-reviewed, found that the Moderna vaccine was more effective in vaccine recipients with high levels of antibodies. These recipients also reported a lower rate of breakthrough infections after being vaccinated. The study was conducted using data from Moderna's 30,000-participant clinical trial, which started last year and was the basis for the vaccine's authorization.

Finding a surrogate measure of efficacy should speed regulators' decisions on vaccine approval even without large placebo-controlled studies, which could be impracticable to carry out if vaccines become widely available, said Peter Gilbert, a researcher at Fred Hutchinson and an author of the study.

Combined with data about the Pfizer/BioNTech and AstraZeneca vaccines, Gilbert said there has been a "consistent accumulation of evidence" showing that antibodies can be used as an alternate marker for vaccine efficacy.

+2 (760) 349-3288 best traditional healers in Johannesburg traditional healers in Gauteng +2 (760) 349-3288 TESTIMONY The only true spell caster that can help you win a lottery is the GREAT DR WAVA. I never believed in lottery winning through spells until I met DR WAVA who helped me to cast a spell for the winning numbers of the lottery I just won. I just needed to share the testimony of how I won $200,000 with the help of DR WAVA. One very day I checked up on spell casters that have helped lots of people because I was tired of losing lotteries. So I found the extraordinary spell caster people kept talking about but I still had doubts of the possibilities of winning through spells. However I contacted him and he told me the necessary things that needed to be done and assured me of gaining great wealth from the lottery as long as I had faith in the power of his gods. After casting the spell he told me I was going to get my numbers in less than 24hrs. Those numbers I got is what has gotten me where I am right now. Invested the money from the lottery and I must say life is way better for me. DR WAVA is a gifted human being who is fully blessed to help other who is in need. I’ll advise everyone reading this to contact this amazing spell caster. Email drwava@mail.com or call +27603493288 https://drwavaofspirituallovespells.com ... Read more
