Experts says covishield induced more antibodys than covaxin. The preliminary Coronavirus Vaccine-Induced Antibody Titre (COVAT) study by medical workers who have received both dose levels of either vaccine has shown that Covishield vaccine has produced more antibodies than Covaxin.
The study claimed that seropositivity rates to anti-spike antibodies in Covishield recipients were significantly higher than those in Covaxin after the first dose.
The study is a preprint and was not evaluated by pairs, so clinical practise is not to be guided. It said that Covishield and Covaxin vaccines were good in the two doses, but in Covishield they had significantly higher seropositivities and median spike antibodies.
“The first dose was taken of Covishield and Covaxin among the 552 HCW (325 males, 227 females) and 456 and 96. After the first dose, 79.3 percent were shown to be seropositive.
In covishield versus covaxin, an increase in the response rate and median IQR (included in the page: 86.8 versus 43.8 percent; 61.5 versus 6 AU/ml; p<0.001), were significantly higher for antispike antibody “The research said. Study said.
The study included health workers with or without a history of SARS-CoV-2 infection who had administered one of the vaccines Covishield and Covaxin.
“This ongoing Pan-India, Cross-sectional Coronavirus Vaccine-induced Antibody Titre (COVAT) study is being conducted among HCW who have or have not had a previous history of SARS-CoV-2 infection.
The anti-spike binding antibody to SARS-CoV-2 is being quantified at four timepoints ranging from 21 days or more after the first dose to 6 months after the second dose
“According to the study. However, according to the study’s findings, both vaccines elicited a positive immune response. “In the Covishield recipient, seropositivity levels were significantly higher in comparison with Covaxin following the first dose when both vaccines triggered immune response.
In the current COVAT study, two vaccine immune responses will be further illuminated after the second dose, “That said. It said.
