Kolkata hospital: 20 screened for Sputnik vs Sputnik trial – ET HealthWorld

Kolkata: The ground is all set for the Sputnik versus Sputnik match at the Peerless Hospitals where the Indian made Sputnik V jabs will be pitted against the Russian made shots.

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.
