Covid-19 vaccine that can cope with mutated viruses in clinical phase 1 study at Karolinska University Hospital

A new DNA-based vaccine against covid-19 is being tested for the first time on healthy participants at Karolinska University Hospital. The vaccine has been developed at Karolinska Institutet and target multiple parts of the virus, making it less vulnerable to mutated strains and potentially effective against new variants.

“This vaccine makes the immune system’s reaction more similar to what it looks like in the event of a real infection compared to today’s vaccines. We hope that it will produce a broader immune response, which can be helpful for people who have difficulty forming antibodies due to, for example, being on dialysis or taking drugs that are immunosuppressive,” says Matti Sällberg, Professor in Biomedical Analysis at at Karolinska Institutet.
