The University of Queensland will commence a phase one clinical trial of a potential coronavirus vaccine on 13 July. Professor Paul Young, one of the lead researchers, says preclinical testing of the S-Spike vaccine showed that it is effective in neutralising the virus and is safe to administer to humans. More than 4,000 people volunteered to take part in the clinical trial, although the university had sought just 120. Project leader Trent Munro says a working vaccine could be available by September, although he notes that it may take longer to receive final approval and commence mass production.
