Stine says his vaccine is similar to a recombinant vaccine being developed by the University of Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. He also claims that a shot will not only protect people against the virus, but also treat those who have it. Dr. Louis Falo, a lead researcher on University of Pittsburgh’s effort, said he was skeptical that Stine’s vaccine could be safe or effective based on how it was assembled. Even if it was, he said, it’s unlikely it would help sick people. … [Read more...] about These scientists are giving themselves DIY coronavirus vaccines

Even if the world gets cheap, effective vaccines against COVID-19, that doesn’t mean all of our pandemic worries are over. With an abundance of other coronaviruses lurking in wild animals, another COVID-like pandemic may be not far off. Several companies — including Anhui Zhifei in China, Osivax in France and VBI in Massachusetts — are developing “universal” coronavirus vaccines that might protect people from an array of the viruses, even those that haven’t colonized our species yet. … [Read more...] about What if the first coronavirus vaccines aren’t the best?
