Bengaluru Startup developing Heat Tolerant Covid-19 Vaccine

Bengaluru startup developing heat-tolerant Covid-19 vaccine

A startup incubated in the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru, is developing a Covid-19 Vaccine that can be stored at 37 degrees Celsius, a development that could be a game-changer for India which lacks sufficient cold chain facilities.

“All (Covid) Vaccine candidates in clinical trials currently require refrigerated temperatures of at least four degrees. Ours would not, in principle,” biophysicist Raghavan Varadarajan, who heads the startup Mynvax, told DH.

“For Covid-19, no one has shown equivalent data of the temperature. They have exposed it to much higher temperatures than 37 degrees for shorter periods of time, and it was okay.” This heat-tolerant medicine can also withstand the heat of 70C for about 16 hours. In comparison, the front runner, AstraZeneca-Oxford’s Covishield Vaccine, manufactured by Pune’s Serum Institute, will have to be refrigerated at 2-8 degrees.

Good if they are doing it, but first it is the vaccine that is urgently required.
