Australia has abandoned development of a domestically made coronavirus vaccine after participants in clinical trials for the vaccine returned false positive test results for HIV.
The drug, created by the University of Queensland (UQ) and biotech company CSL, has sparked a “robust” immune response to SARS-COV-2 in phase 1 trials, but it also led to unfortunate complications involving another dangerous virus. The antibodies that protected participants from Covid-19 infection also led to false positives on HIV tests.
Although none of the participants in the trial actually contracted HIV, Australian Minister of Health Greg Hunt admitted that this bizarre side effect interferes with HIV testing. There is no known cure for the virus, which attacks the immune system, and if left untreated, HIV can lead to AIDS.

According to the vaccine developers, the problem could take a year to resolve. The setback prompted CSL and the Australian government to cancel the Phase 2 and Phase 3 trials.
The coronavirus coup was one of four candidates mandated by Canberra. Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the drug will be put on the shelves indefinitely and “Will no longer be part of Australia’s vaccination plan.”
The government had planned to acquire 51 million doses of the vaccine as part of a mass inoculation campaign set to begin in mid-2021. Instead, the UQ-CSL team will manufacture an additional 20 million doses of the jab created by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca, in addition to the 30 million doses it already produces of the drug.
Australia has also signed an agreement for 10 million doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine, which is expected to receive approval from the country’s pharmaceutical regulator early next year.
Governments and pharmaceutical companies around the world have been scrambling to launch an effective injection of Covid-19, which has resulted in safety concerns due to rushed development. The US drug regulator, the Food and Drug Administration, recently revealed that four people who received the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine suffered temporary facial paralysis, although the FDA said there was no evidence linking the issues. vaccine health care.
