The Minister of Science assures that the Spanish Hipra vaccine presents good results against omicron


The future Spanish vaccine against COVID-19 in which the Hipra laboratories, based in Amer (Girona) are working, presents good results against the omicron variant, according to the Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, assured this Tuesday.

Morant has visited the facilities of this company and recalled that he works with the method of recombining proteins, which is designed for alpha and beta strains, but can be adapted to those that “may arise”.

“The results and the resistance presented by the vaccine that is being tested today against the new variant, against the omicron, have just told me that it is good,” said the minister, who hopes that it will be marketed in the second quarter of this year.

“I would like it to be the year of Hipra”, said the minister, who stressed that the company is awaiting authorization from the Spanish Agency for Medicines and Health Products (AEMPS) to move to phase III of the clinical trial this January.

Morant has also advanced that, “if everything goes well”, the vaccine could be ready for the second quarter of 2022.
