One of the reasons for choosing mice, Syrian hamsters, rabbits and rhesus macaque monkeys for this test was that the ability of these animals to fight the virus that develops in the body is very close to the human body.
Coronavirus infection is increasing in an uncontrolled way in the country. On the other hand, millions of people all over the world are using covaxine to protect themselves from corona. This vaccine has saved many lives, and has helped prevent the spread of infectious disease in many places. We should thank the rat, Syrian hamster, rabbit and rhesus macaque monkey for this vaccine. In fact, rats, Syrian hamsters, rabbits and rhesus macaque monkeys were the animals that were given the first dose of the three vaccines developed by scientists of Bharat Biotech.
Not only because these animals were the first animals to receive the jobs of three vaccine candidates developed by scientists at the Indian Biomedical Research Council (ICMR) as well as Bharat Biotech. According to the information found, at the end of the research, those animals were put to sleep forever so that scientists could research what the virus did to the animals and their organs, and after the vaccine, the virus in its body was vaccinated by the vaccine. How to control.
Scientists involved in the development of these animals or vaccines, which are being tested by themselves in the lab of NIV, which no one knows, have made a big contribution to save the whole world from the virus and make the vaccine successful. At the same time, in three studies conducted on the vaccine, scientists from Bharat Biotech, NIV and ICMR have given detailed information about how this vaccine reaches the body and enhances our immunity system and protects it from Kovid.
The reason for choosing these animals was
One reason for choosing mice, Syrian hamsters, rabbits and rhesus macaque monkeys for this test was that the ability of these animals to fight the virus that develops in the body is very close to the human body. Although rats, rabbits and Syrian hamsters were lab-bred, the rhesus macaas used in the test of covaxin candidates were caught from the forest in Maharashtra.
Permission was sought for testing on animals
Although permission was obtained from the Office of the Principal Chief Conservator of Forests (PCCF) of the state of Maharashtra for this test, according to permission, scientists could capture 30 rhesus macaques from the forests. At the same time, the number of monkeys was reduced due to lack of food in the forests during the lockdown caused by the corona of India. Research said that the experiments were done in compliance with the guidelines set by the Committee for the control and supervision of animals of the Government of India.
