Twenty volunteers, who will be part of the trial, underwent the screening at the Kolkata hospital. The enrolment process for more volunteers is on. The first lot of volunteers may get the jab by the weekend.
“We screened 20 volunteers on Wednesday after taking consent from them. Their blood, urine and swab samples for Covid test were collected while their doubts were cleared,” said Peerless Hospital clinical research & academics Subhrojyoti Bhowmick.
While Bhowmick will be the principal investigator, Debarati Kundu will co-investigate the study.
