"These results support the further evaluation of BBIBP-CorV in a clinical trial", researchers said in the paper.
The company informed via a press release that they have been able to further accelerate the clinical development of the investigational SARS-CoV-2 vaccine, Ad26.COV2-S, recombinant.
Moderna Inc. announced Thursday it is ready to begin testing its candidate for a coronavirus vaccine on 30,000 people in the United States. The administration has launched a program called "Operation Warp Speed", with the ambitious goal of rolling out a safe and effective vaccine by the year's end.
The primary endpoint would be preventing symptomatic COVID-19 disease and the key secondary endpoints would be prevention of severe COVID-19 disease and prevention of infection by SARS-CoV-2, the company said. There are five Chinese coronavirus vaccine candidates that are in the human trial stage and competing with the likes of Moderna and AstraZeneca.
At that dose level, the company said it can deliver 500 million doses per year and perhaps as many as 1 billion doses per year starting in 2021, as it works with Swiss drugmaker Lonza for its manufacturing needs. The study will take place in the US and Belgium.
The full details of that study aren't available yet; that will soon be published by Moderna's collaborators, a team of scientists at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

The company plans to test the vaccine in high-transmission regions within the United States.
Moderna's Early, Midstage Coronavirus Update: For the early- and mid-stage studies that are ongoing, Moderna said the original cohorts in the Phase 1 study are in long-term follow-up and enrollment is complete in nine of the 12 cohorts that were subsequently added. A Moderna representative confirmed the phase 3 plan to the Journal, and an AstraZeneca spokesperson said the company's recent contract with the USA government includes a late-stage test, but the company didn't confirm timing.
British-based drugmakers AstraZeneca AZN.L and GlaxoSmithKline GSK.L , France's Sanofi SASY.PA , and US players Pfizer PFE.N , Novavax NVAX.O , Johnson & Johnson JNJ.N and Moderna MRNA.O are among companies trialling vaccines.
J&J began developing their vaccine in January, using the same technologies they used to make their experimental Ebola vaccine rolled out in the Democratic Republic of Congo in late 2019.
