RBDCOV, towards a new COVID-19 vaccine for children, adolescents and immunocompromised people using a recombinant protein

RBDCOV will test the efficacy, tolerability, and safety of the vaccine against the variants of COVID19

What is RBDCOV ​

RBDCOV is a clinical trial that tests how efficient, tolerable, in terms of side-effects, and safe, the HIPRA’s vaccine against the different variants of COVID-19 by the consortium partners. The Covid-19 vaccine being developed by HIPRA is an adjuvanted recombinant protein vaccine, based on a receptor binding domain (RBD) fusion heterodimer containing variants B.1.1.7 (alpha) and B.1.351 (beta) of SARS-CoV-2.

The initiative is an innovative vaccine-focused research project that brings together the expertise of a number of European groups and companies in rational design of animal and human vaccine immunogens, vaccine manufacturing, distribution and commercialisation, cellular and humoral immune responses, clinical trials, regulatory issues, stakeholders involvement and patients perspective.

As we all know, COVID-19 is a respiratory disease categorized by the WHO as a pandemic that has provoked obviously a health crisis, but a socio-economic crisis too because of the measured needed and adopted by the different countries to try to contain the spread of the virus.
