    NEJM, JAMA and BMJ rejected it. Annals is usually really good. It definitely gets attention and eye balls on your journal.

    It's good to know from an epidemiology stand point that masks probably don't do any good when local cases are low and community spread is minimal, and this is good data supporting that.

    OF COURSE, it will be misinterpreted by chuds who are scientifically illiterate, but it's still a relevant data point in this specific regard. (although it's a shitty data point of a low quality study).

    Got injected around 10:00 am. Knew by 6:00 pm something wasn’t right. Was pretty miserable by 12:00 midnight and had the fever of 101.4, really bad chills, bad headache. Slept like a rock until around 10:00 the next day - woke up with symptoms but felt slightly better than the night before. More fatigue than anything that day. Took another nap that afternoon and woke up feeling decent. Woke up the next morning feeling 100% minus the arm hurting/swollen.

    So we’re gonna have to get this vaccine on a Friday or take a sick day? Or any chance of these side effects being reduced?

    the MOA of masks doesn't change based on the level of community spread. they work just as well, no worse no better. are they an expensive, difficult intervention? not particularly. i don't see the real world value in this data whatsoever.

    LONDON—A Covid-19 vaccine being developed by the University of Oxford and AstraZenecaAZN -1.76% PLC showed promising immune responses in elderly and older adults, with fewer serious side effects than in younger volunteers, according to a just-published interim analysis previewed in late October.

    The data from that preview have now been peer reviewed. The results were published Thursday in the Lancet medical journal, providing a stamp of approval for the earlier findings. The data were based on earlier, Phase Two human trials of the vaccine.

    AstraZeneca and Oxford have yet to release later-stage, or Phase Three, trial data demonstrating the vaccine’s overall efficacy in fighting Covid-19. Those trials continue.

    THE VACCINE RACE



    Drugmakers of two rival vaccine candidates—one from Pfizer Inc. and Germany’s BioNTech SE and another from Moderna Inc. —have each disclosed efficacy rates of more than 90%, higher than many had expected from vaccines developed so quickly. The vaccines’ full safety data hasn’t yet been published.

    People involved in the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine have said they expect their efficacy data, from ongoing late-stage trials, in the coming weeks. Unlike the Pfizer and Moderna programs, which rely on a new vaccine technology called messenger RNA, the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca and Oxford represents a more traditional approach.

    AstraZeneca has committed to making the vaccine at greater volumes across a wider geographic footprint than its Western peers. It has also promised to deliver doses at no profit during the pandemic, and continuing afterward for poorer countries. All that has heightened anticipation of clinical results for the AstraZeneca vaccine, with hopes it can complement rollouts of other shots in parts of the world that might not have immediate access to Pfizer’s and Moderna’s shots.

    The data describing the vaccine’s effect on older people has also taken on outsize importance, since this group is especially vulnerable to serious illness or death from the virus.

    In the peer-reviewed study of the vaccine, healthy adults aged 56 and older showed similar positive immune responses to younger trial participants. The oldest adults involved—with an average age of 73-74 years—showed milder adverse reactions, according to early results published Thursday.

    Governments are expected to give priority to older adults in rollouts of vaccines, which could start in limited quantities before the end of this year. Scientists have said they expect different age groups to react differently to different vaccines—a big reason why they expect multiple vaccines to be necessary to protect all ages in the coming months and years.

    The Oxford vaccine spurred trial participants’ immune systems to find and attack cells infected with the virus, and following a second, booster shot was effective in attacking the virus in the bloodstream, according to the interim results. Those positive outcomes were present in all age groups given low and standard doses. Some participants received just one shot, while others got a booster after 28 days. The early-stage study involved 560 healthy adults, including 240 people older than 70 years. Most were white nonsmokers.

    The continuing late-stage trials of the vaccine will show broader results for safety and efficacy, including in older adults with underlying health conditions, and from a wider range of backgrounds, countries and ethnicities of all ages, researchers said.

    “Immune responses from vaccines are often lessened in older adults because the immune system gradually deteriorates with age, which also leaves older adults more susceptible to infections,” said Andrew Pollard, an Oxford professor who is the lead author of the study.

    The most common side effects were pain at the injection site, fatigue, headache, feverishness and muscle pain. Fewer people aged 70 or over experienced those temporary symptoms, compared with younger trial participants, researchers said.

    From the CDC:

    Vaccines Require More Than One Dose

    There are four reasons that babies—and even teens or adults—who receive a vaccine for the first time may need more than one dose:

    • For some vaccines (primarily inactivated vaccines), the first dose does not provide as much immunity as possible. So, more than one dose is needed to build more complete immunity. The vaccine that protects against the bacteria Hib, which causes meningitis, is a good example.

    • For some vaccines, after a while, immunity begins to wear off. At that point, a “booster” dose is needed to bring immunity levels back up. This booster dose usually occurs several years after the initial series of vaccine doses is given. For example, in the case of the DTaP vaccine, which protects against diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis, the initial series of four shots that children receive as part of their infant immunizations helps build immunity. But a booster dose is needed at 4 years through 6 years old. Another booster against these diseases is needed at 11 years or 12 years of age. This booster for older children—and teens and adults, too—is called Tdap.

    • For some vaccines (primarily live vaccines), studies have shown that more than one dose is needed for everyone to develop the best immune response. For example, after one dose of the MMR vaccine, some people may not develop enough antibodies to fight off infection. The second dose helps make sure that almost everyone is protected.

    • Finally, in the case of flu vaccines, adults and children (6 months and older) need to get a dose every year. Children 6 months through 8 years old who have never gotten a flu vaccine in the past or have only gotten one dose in past years need two doses the first year they are vaccinated. Then, an annual flu vaccine is needed because the flu viruses causing disease may be different from season to season. Every year, flu vaccines are made to protect against the viruses that research suggests will be most common. Also, the immunity a child gets from a flu vaccination wears off over time. Getting a flu vaccine every year helps keep a child protected, even if the vaccine viruses don’t change from one season to the next.

    Im not 100% sure if I possibly got a stronger/experimental dose or not. I had patients that night and figured out of caution I should probably go home, but up until that point I was able to work, just feeling kind of miserable. I could have powered through had I needed to. I wouldn’t want to go to work the next day if I didn’t need to though.

    More good news

    https://www.astrazeneca.com/media-centre/press-releases/2020/azd1222hlr.html

    Two different dosing regimens demonstrated efficacy with one showing a better profile

    No hospitalisations or severe cases of COVID-19 in participants treated with AZD1222

    Positive high-level results from an interim analysis of clinical trials of AZD1222 in the UK and Brazil showed the vaccine was highly effective in preventing COVID-19, the primary endpoint, and no hospitalisations or severe cases of the disease were reported in participants receiving the vaccine. There were a total of 131 COVID-19 cases in the interim analysis.

    One dosing regimen (n=2,741) showed vaccine efficacy of 90% when AZD1222 was given as a half dose, followed by a full dose at least one month apart, and another dosing regimen (n=8,895) showed 62% efficacy when given as two full doses at least one month apart. The combined analysis from both dosing regimens (n=11,636) resulted in an average efficacy of 70%. All results were statistically significant (p<=0.0001). More data will continue to accumulate and additional analysis will be conducted, refining the efficacy reading and establishing the duration of protection.


    Any theory on the half dose? Seems weird

    Anyway, this will be the gamechanger for this to go global and should lead to mass vaccination by the end of Q1 in the West at least.

    Ok so this started as an argument with a family member and now I am just genuinely curious. Is this operation warp speed thing Trump is hanging his hat on anything more than a purchasing agreement? Does the federal government typically provided funding for these types of things? What actual barriers to development have been removed here? Not trying to start some major political shitstorm in here I am more curious about how the behind the scenes on how this stuff typically would go. I know this is a bit unprecedented but I thought I would ask. Don't expect some dissertation but if anyone has any helpful links I can read I would appreciate it.

    It’s more than a purchasing agreement. It’s fairly standard for labs receive government funding for vaccine development, though amount allocated for OWS is generous. The government worked with the drug companies to standardize their protocols for efficiency of trial oversight. The government is footing the bill for large scale production, before trial results/approval are known. Finally, the government is assisting with distribution to expedite delivery to all 50 states.
