Mexico in talks to produce ReiThera's COVID-19 vaccine
22 July 2021 -

Authorities in Mexico are in talks with Italian health authorities and Italian biotechnology company ReiThera regarding the possibility of producing the company's GRAd-COV2 COVID-19 vaccine in Mexico, Reuters news agency reported on Thursday.

Mexico is also planning to participate in GRAd-COV2's Phase III trials, which will require 6,000 volunteers in the country.

According to Reuters, Italy's hopes of producing its own COVID-19 vaccine were boosted earlier this month when ReiThera said its vaccine candidate showed a strong immune response and no major side effects in intermediate Phase II clinical trials.
