Keeping Pace with MUTATING VIRUSES


A surge in the pandemic has forced the pharma industry to deliver a wide-spectrum vaccine to fight mutation-prone SARS-CoV-2, pledging to prevent future outbreaks. WHO states that the most extensive vaccinatio­n campaign in history is providing prophylact­ic results by delivering more than 12 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, protecting 60 per cent of the global population as of June 2022. Now the next-generation COVID-19 vaccines are countering the challenge of enhancing the immune response to tackle the emerging COVID-19 variants. It is therefore imperative to remain vigilant and upgrade vaccine candidates to emerging virus sublineage­s. In order to gain a competitiv­e position in the market, vaccine manufactur­ers are investing in advanced platform technologi­es. Let’s take a closer look at some of these leading vaccines approved in APAC as broad spectrum virucide inhibitors.
