Hungarian-Austrian vaccine about to be tested on animals

The Virology Research Group of the University of Pécs together with Austrian biotechnology company CEBINA started a vaccine development project in June 2020. – The vaccine development project has entered its laboratory phase. We will also start animal testing in late January, early February. We are very confident that we will be able to produce results soon, but it would be too early to say when our vaccine is expected – virologist Ferenc Jakab told in the interview for the ATV newscast (LINK).
