New Delhi: The National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration Monday met with five domestic COVID-19 vaccine manufacturers, including two whose products are not yet in the clinical trial stages in India, to review the situation.

The two companies are Gennova Biopharmaceuticals, based in Pune, and Biological E in Hyderabad. The remaining three are the Serum Institute of India, Bharat Biotech, and Zydus Cadila, all of whose vaccines are in different stages of a clinical trial.

According to a government statement on Monday’s expert group meeting: “It provided the National Expert Group with inputs about the present stage of various candidate vaccines being developed by the indigenous manufacturers as well as their expectations from the Union Government.”

Gennova Biopharmaceuticals, in collaboration with HDT Biotech Corporation in Seattle, USA, has developed an mRNA vaccine candidate (HGCO19) with “demonstrated safety, immunogenicity, neutralization antibody activity in the rodent and non-human primate models”.

“The company is working aggressively to ensure first human injection by the end of the year, subject to Indian regulatory approvals,” a PIB statement issued last month stated while announcing a tie-up of the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) with the company.

The DBT Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (DBT-BIRAC) had facilitated the establishment of a ‘first-of-its-kind’ mRNA-based vaccine manufacturing platform in India. DBT provided seed funding for the development of Gennova’s novel self-amplifying mRNA-based vaccine candidate for Covid-19, the statement had said.

As for Biological E, the company just announced a tie-up with Johnson & Johnson. In its statement on 13 August, the company said: “Biological E. Limited (“BE”) has entered into an agreement with Janssen Pharmaceutica NV (“Janssen”), one of the Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, for the creation/enhancement of manufacturing capacities for drug substance and drug product for Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate, Ad26.COV2.S. Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine candidate is currently in Phase 1/2a clinical trials.”

Thousands of people protesting over Kyrgyzstan election result

Kyrgyzstan Protest

Thousands of people are protesting in Kyrgyzstan over allegations of vote-buying and intimidation in Sunday’s parliamentary election. The capital Bishkek saw the largest protest while rallies were also held elsewhere in the ex-Soviet republic.

Only four parties out of 16 passed the 7% threshold for entry into parliament, three of which have close ties to President Sooronbai Jeenbekov. International monitors have said the claims of vote-buying are “credible”.

None of the established opposition parties got a seat in parliament. Now all of these parties have declared that they will not recognize the results of the election. Opposition candidates are calling on the Central Electoral Commission in Kyrgyzstan to cancel the results of the vote. One candidate, Ryskeldi Mombekov, told a crowd of more than 5,000 protesters: “The president promised to oversee honest elections. He didn’t keep his word.”

Mr. Mombekov’s party, Ata Meken, had been confident of entering parliament, but in the end, it was one of the eight parties that missed the threshold. Protesters are also calling on President Jeenbekov to resign. Thomas Boserup, head of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe’s election observation mission, said in a briefing that although the vote had been “generally well organized”, allegations of vote-buying were a “serious concern”.

The two leading parties, which got a quarter of the vote each, were Birimdik and Mekenim Kyrgyzstan. President Jeenbekov’s younger brother, Asylbek Jeenbekov, is in Birimdik.

Mekenim Kyrgyzstan, meanwhile, is seen as being closely connected to the powerful Matraimov family. The family’s figurehead, Rayimbek Matraimov, is believed to have helped finance Mr. Jeenbekov’s successful presidential campaign in 2017.
