  • nCoV vaccine prognosis

    Fauci,NIH : 1 year
    Fauci said it would take a few months until the first phase of clinical trials begins and
    more than a year until a vaccine is available

    Tregoning, Imperial College at Bloomberg : 5-6 Months

    University of Queensland : 16 weeks , 6 months
    The team hopes to develop a vaccine over the next six months, which may be used to help
    contain this outbreak,” he said. “The vaccine would be distributed to first responders,
    helping to contain the virus from spreading around the world.” (Paul Young)

    Dr. Tal Zaks, Moderna’s chief medical officer, committed to getting that done
    on CEPI’s 16-week timeline. And the company will be able to manufacture the
    eventual vaccine in a matter of a few months, Zaks said. That should cover
    clinical trials, he said, but if the vaccine ends up working — and the 2019-nCoV
    outbreak drags on — the company would have to rely on someone else to
    churn out the massive number of doses required to halt the virus.

    David Weiner , Inovio : "much faster".

    Gregory Glenn from Novavax says that his firm is working on developing a
    vaccine for the China coronavirus, and work on that could take two to three months.

    CEPI : In 16 Wochen sollen die ersten Impfstoffe gegen das neuartige Coronavirus
    getestet werden Eine Erfolgsgarantie gebe es allerdings nicht.
    Laut Experten dürfte es aber mindestens ein Jahr dauern, bis ein fertiger Impfstoff
    zur Verfügung steht.

    I speculate they could somehow reduce the testing phase, if time urges,
    That makes it somehow risky, but hey, the pandemic is the bigger risk.
    I can't find any statements on this, though. But maybe they mustn't talk
    about this ... it's all commercial,legal.government - they can't just speak freely.

    Meanwhile, they are clearly counting on HIV anti virals such as lopinavir/ritonavir to help plug the gap.
    The Beijing hospitals appear to have been the first to try this, with some patient improvement and no obvious ill effects.
