UK – Inhaled coronavirus vaccines to be tested in UK

UK researchers are to begin trials of inhaled coronavirus vaccines.

Delivering doses directly to the lungs might give a better immune response than conventional jabs, they say.

The Imperial College London team will use two frontrunners already in development – the Oxford one recently paused in trials and one from Imperial that entered human testing in June.

There are nearly 180 candidates being explored globally – but none has yet reached the end goal.
