The Biology Institute of the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences has announced the start of the second stage of testing a possible vaccine for human immunodeficiency virus, in its efforts to assess the effectiveness and safety of the vaccine.
About 10 vaccines have entered various stages of human testing worldwide, at a time when the World Health Organization warns that the Corona pandemic is accelerating, and that "the world is in a new and dangerous stage."
None of these vaccines has entered the third stage of large-scale testing, a necessary step to obtain approval from the authorities concerned to put it up for sale.
The institute said, "Chinese researchers began Saturday the second phase of human testing of the vaccine, which is one of 6 possible Chinese scientists are testing on humans, following the first stage in which about 200 people participated since last May."
The second stage will determine the necessary dose and continue to assess whether the vaccine can stimulate the immune system of healthy people without any problems.

Twitter has apologized to its users for some of the problems that have arisen in them in the new "audio tweets" service it is testing, and for its failure to take into account the interests of people with special needs.
The application apologized for not offering special services for the disabled and people with special needs in the new "audio tweets" service, according to the "Engadget" technical website.
In its new service, Twitter did not provide translation or explanation for people with disabilities, which civil rights advocates described as an "unforgivable mistake."
"At least, the option of providing closed captions will make this easier for people with disabilities," said attorney Matthew Cortland, who was one of the first to highlight this issue. "Twitter did not provide any explanation for people with special needs."
Twitter replied from its official support account, saying: "This is an early version of this feature and we are exploring ways to make these types of tweets accessible to everyone."
But the Twitter statement sparked a second campaign of anger against him, as some accused him of thinking about people with special needs late for him, and this is unacceptable.
Criticism of Twitter intensified, prompting him to submit a second official apology, and the promise of a second service update offering benefits for people with special needs.
