Monkeys respond well in vaccine experiment, offering hope for humans


Tony Luong - New York Times

Katherine McMahan, a research assistant in Boston, worked in a lab testing COVID-19 vaccines on monkeys that shows promise.

A prototype vaccine has protected monkeys from the coronavirus, researchers reported Wednesday, a finding that offers new hope for effective human vaccines.

Scientists are already testing coronavirus vaccines in people, but the initial trials are designed to determine safety, not how well a vaccine works. The research published Wednesday offers insight into what a vaccine must do to be effective and how to measure that.
