Coronavirus: Oxford Vaccine Trigger Immune Response, UK Orders 100 Million Doses

A coronavirus vaccine developed by the University of Oxford appears safe and triggers an immune response.

Trials involving 1,077 people showed the injection led to them making antibodies and T-cells that can fight coronavirus.

The findings are hugely promising, but it is still too soon to know if this is enough to offer protection and larger trials are under way.

The UK has already ordered 100 million doses of the vaccine.
How does the vaccine work?

The vaccine – called ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 – is being developed at unprecedented speed.

It is made from a genetically engineered virus that causes the common cold in chimpanzees.

It has been heavily modified, first so it cannot cause infections in people and also to make it “look” more like coronavirus.

Scientists did this by transferring the genetic instructions for the coronavirus’s “spike protein” – the crucial tool it uses to invade our cells – to the vaccine they were developing.

This means the vaccine resembles the coronavirus and the immune system can learn how to attack it.
What are antibodies and T-cells?

Much of the focus on coronavirus so far has been about antibodies, but these are only one part of our immune defence.

Antibodies are small proteins made by the immune system that stick onto the surface of viruses.

Neutralising antibodies can disable the coronavirus.

T-cells, a type of white blood cell, help co-ordinate the immune system and are able to spot which of the body’s cells have been infected and destroy them.

Nearly all effective vaccines induce both an antibody and a T-cell response.

Levels of T-cells peaked 14 days after vaccination and antibody levels peaked after 28 days. The study has not run for long enough to understand how long they may last, the study in the Lancet showed.

Prof Andrew Pollard, from the Oxford research group told the BBC: “We’re really pleased with the results published today as we’re seeing both neutralising antibodies and T-cells.

“They’re extremely promising and we believe the type of response that may be associated with protection.

“But the key question everyone wants to know is does the vaccine work, does it offer protection… and we’re in a waiting game.”

The study showed 90% of people developed neutralising antibodies after one dose. Only ten people were given two doses and all of them produced neutralising antibodies.

“We don’t know the level needed for protection, but we can maximise responses with a second dose,” Prof Pollard told the BBC.
Is it safe?

Yes, but there are side-effects.

There were no dangerous side-effects from taking the vaccine, however, 70% of people on the trial developed either fever or headache.

The researchers say this could be managed with paracetamol.

Prof Sarah Gilbert, from the University of Oxford, UK, says: “There is still much work to be done before we can confirm if our vaccine will help manage the Covid-19 pandemic, but these early results hold promise.”
What are the next steps in the trial?

The results so far are promising, but their main purpose is to ensure the vaccine is safe enough to give to people.

The study cannot show whether the vaccine can either prevent people from becoming ill or even lessen their symptoms of Covid-19.

More than 10,000 people will take part in the next stage of the trials in the UK.

However, the trial has also been expanded to other countries because levels of coronavirus are low in the UK, making it hard to know if the vaccine is effective.

There will be a large trial involving 30,000 people in the US as well 2,000 in South Africa and 5,000 in Brazil.

There are also calls to perform “challenge trials” in which vaccinated people are deliberately infected with coronavirus. However, there are ethical concerns due to a lack of treatments.
When will I get a vaccine?

It is possible a coronavirus vaccine will be proven effective before the end of the year, however, it will not be widely available.

Health and care workers will be prioritised as will people who are deemed at high risk from Covid-19 due to their age or medical conditions.

However, widespread vaccination is likely to be, at the earliest, next year even if everything goes to plan.

Boris Johnson said: “Obviously I’m hopeful, I’ve got my fingers crossed, but to say I’m 100% confident we’ll get a vaccine this year, or indeed next year, is, alas, just an exaggeration.

“We’re not there yet.”
What progress is being made with other vaccines?

The Oxford vaccine is not the first to reach this stage, with groups in the US and China also publishing similar results.

The US company Moderna was first out of the blocks and its vaccine can produce neutralising antibodies. They are injecting coronavirus RNA (its genetic code), which then starts making viral proteins in order to trigger an immune response


Why You Shouldn’t Sleep With A Woman For More Than 13 Minutes

The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Noble Trust Herbal Clinic Dr George Donkor, has cautioned persons who enjoy sex for than 13 minutes to stay off that practice.

Speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow 87.5FM, he said men who go beyond 13 minutes are prone to prostate enlargement and heart disease.

Reason Why Father Brutalized His 3-years Old Son Will Shock You

Commander of the Manhyia Divisional Police Command, ACP Kwaku Buah, has given an update on the reasons given by a father for virtually mutilating his 3-year-old son’s body.

According to ACP Buah, the abuser father, Ebenezer Nana Bonsu, has told the police that his actions were borne of his 3-year-old son’s insubordination.

ACP Buah, however, said police suspect Bonsu’s actions could be due to mother of the boy’s decision to opt out of their relationship.

“Bonsu was in a relationship with the boy’s mother until she recently decided to opt out so we suspect it’s the reason he has decided to unleash his anger on the little boy,” he said.

ACP Buah who was speaking on Adom FM 106.3 FM‘s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, said Mr Bonsu is currently in police custody to assist with investigations as the child receives treatment at the Manhyia Hospital.

“I’m not a doctor but the child’s condition looked bad to me and we pray it’s not worse than we see now because he is to go for a scan today,” he disclosed.

“All the excuses he [the boy’s father] gave didn’t make sense to us because I don’t know what offence can merit such a punishment for a 3-year-old boy,” he added.

Top 9 Ghanaian Foods You Should Taste When You Visit The Country

When it comes to a perfect skin nutrition, Ghanaian dishes are enough to give you that flawless glowing skin you so much desire. The saying that “you are what you eat” has proven itself to be a fact over time both through study and real-life experiences. A lot of people who are ignorant of this spend fortunes on skin care products in their search for better skin tone and texture. Inasmuch as the role of skin care products in achieving that perfect-looking skin may not be completely ruled out, your skin on most occasions reflects what you eat and so, working on it should start with working on your diet.

Foods, when chosen rightly, can really do wonders to our skin. Without much fuss, here are 10 common Ghanaian dishes you should make part of your regular diet if you desire a perfect glowing skin. Of course, you’ll also find them elsewhere in case you are not a Ghanaian or residing in the West African country.

1. Spinach Soup/Stew with Beef

Beef tastes great and is a good source of minerals that serve as antioxidants and facilitate the skin renewal process. Include it in most of your diets, stews, soups, etc. It is good to have it garnished with vegetables that are great for the skin too. Spinach is one of the most recommended as it is rich in Vitamin C, another antioxidant that works to repair skin cells and keep your skin looking beautiful. You need vitamin C to make collagen, a protein used to manufacture new skin cells.

2. Avocados

Avocados have been proven to be rich sources of healthy fats, antioxidants, and vitamins, especially vitamin E and C which are the major vitamins that see to the well-being of the skin.

The unsaturated fats in avocado are beneficial for improving your skin tone and for maintaining good moisture levels in the epidermal layer of your skin. They also help to reduce skin redness, irritation and are involved in repairing damaged skin cells. Avocado protects your skin from wrinkles and other visible signs of aging with its antioxidant carotenoids – vitamin E which helps guard against photo-aging from sun exposure, and vitamin C which creates elastin and collagen for maintaining your skin’s elasticity and firmness. There may not be a dish of avocado complete in itself, but it can easily go with a lot of Ghanaian dishes.

3. Salmon

If you desire your skin to shine, you can easily achieve this by making salmon a regular part of your diet. Salmon is rich in the sought-after omega-3 fatty acids which perform wonders to the skin tone and texture. Lucky enough, good Ghanaian restaurants always have a rich supply of this nutritious food. Unless you don’t like fish, there’s always an option of fish (salmon) wherever beef or chicken would go. Be it stews, soups, or other dishes.

4. Red Bell Pepper

Red bell peppers are always available in the local market at very low prices, and they can go with almost every meal. Surprisingly, they could also serve as snacks. Red bell peppers are tasty vegetables that can be enjoyed either cooked or raw. One red bell pepper contains more than 100% of your daily vitamin C needs. It also contains significant amounts of dietary fiber and vitamin B6. Moreover, it is rich in carotenoids which can help prevent wrinkles and increase blood circulation to your skin, helping it look more youthful. Due to their carotenoids, red bell peppers are also great to fight acne. Wondering the best way to eat red bell peppers? Think of any egg dish or salad!

5. Dark Chocolates

Dark chocolates are not only eaten the way they come in packets but could also be used to prepare some yummy spicy dishes like the one above. Chocolates are made from cocoa and the dark ones are recommended because they are the ones that contain significant quantities of cocoa. Cocoa hydrates the skin and makes it firmer and more supple. It contains high levels of flavonoids, a type of antioxidant that improves skin luminosity.

6. Beans

Unfortunately, so many people, especially, the western-minded fellows despise and ignore this very nutritious local delicacy. Ghana has various ways of preparing beans to make it most appetizing and delicious. Instead of wasting money on some so-called protein-rich packed foods, turn your attention to the local beans which are very rich in protein, and you’ll be amazed at the results you’ll get as regards to your skin condition. Most importantly, beans are full of anthocyanins, and they are very powerful in preventing skin damage caused by free radicals. To get the best results, garnish with fresh tomatoes, pepper, onions and a little green vegetable of your choice.

7. Sardines

Sardines taste great in almost all types of sauce for eating virtually anything. So, it’s very easy to make it a regular part of your diet for a perfect skin nutrition. Most seafood contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as selenium, iron, zinc and vitamin B12. This is exciting because most people have a hard time getting enough of these fats, vitamins, and minerals, and they are all linked to skin regeneration and repair. The extra iron can help ward off hair loss while B-12 can help with itchy eczema. Also, omega-3s are known to ease everything from adult acne to dandruff.

8. Pawpaw

Paw-paw or papaya as it is sometimes called is a long time skin beauty fruit used in various ways. So many people spend huge sums of money on skin care products that have papaya extracts but unfortunately, the content may be very minimal and therefore, would not give the desired results as much as expected. The antioxidant nutrients found in paw-paw, including Vitamins C and E and beta-carotene, are great for reducing inflammation and acne. Moreover, Vitamin C may also protect your skin against sun damage. If only you’ll be patient, you’ll get to realize that consuming some cubes of paw-paw on a daily basis will do wonders for your skin. Interestingly, paw-paw could go with a lot of Ghanaian dishes such as jollof rice, rice-and-stew, and salads. It could as well be used as dessert to conclude main meals.

9. Carrots

Carrots are good not only for your eyes but also for your skin; they are especially good for clearing up breakouts. Carrots are rich in vitamin A and they help to prevent the overproduction of cells in the outer layer of the skin. That’s where excess sebum combines with dead cells and clogs pores. Just like papaya, carrots could go with almost all kind of meal. You can as well eat it alone as a snack. It is crunchy, sweet and more satisfying than many junk snacks you could think of.

10. Plenty of Water

No class of food can take the place of water in our diets. Drinking adequate amounts of water daily is important for overall good health because it helps improve most bodily functions. Whenever the inner metabolism of the body is not in good condition, it quickly reflects on the skin, affecting the texture and tone. This is exactly why an individual’s daily water intake has a direct relationship with his or her skin condition. It has been proven beyond doubt that taking a good quantity of water every day helps improve skin textures. Drinking adequate water maintains your skin’s healthy glow and makes wrinkles less visible.
