In the coronavirus epidemic, a serious way has been made in the production of vaccines that are hope to the whole world. However, due to the mistrust of most people towards vaccines, Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna companies have published the ingredients in the vaccine ingredients.
American pharmaceutical company Pfizer and Turkish scientist Prof. Dr. The new type of coronavirus vaccine developed by the German biotechnology company BioNTech, of which Uğur Şahin is the founding partner, has been used in the USA, England and Canada so far. The vaccine, which is announced to be 95 percent effective, will be used in European Union (EU) countries as of September 27. The Moderna vaccine, produced by a US company using the same technology as BionTech / Pfizer, has also received emergency use approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today.
THE CONTENT OF VACCINES SHARED ONLINE
According to the news of NTV; With the distribution of millions of doses of Pfizer / BionTech vaccine in approved countries, false claims have surfaced. Companies wanting to prevent this have also shared the full contents of their vaccines online.’MRNA’ TECHNOLOGY IS USED IN VACCINESBoth Pfizer and Moderna vaccine use messenger RNA (mRNA) technology. While these vaccines are the first of their kind, scientists have been working on mRNA technology for over 20 years, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
INCLUDES BAŞAK PROTEIN IN THE CONTENT
The mRNA vaccines developed against the corona do not contain live or inactivated viruses, they work by encoding a part of the spike protein found on the surface of the new type of coronavirus. Virgo protein is also known as the part where the virus attaches to the body.HOW DO
VACCINES USE THE CODEED PROTEIN?
The mRNA contained in the vaccine instructs the cells to produce a protein similar to the spike protein of the virus. After this, the immune system thinks that it is an infection that it needs to fight, and a response occurs against the proteins produced. In this process, the body develops a new type of corona-specific antibody. Antibodies, on the other hand, provide the defense of the body when the coronavirus is encountered again.HERE
