Team Udayavani, Dec 7, 2020, 4:07 PM IST

Moderna’s coronavirus vaccine causes the human immune system to produce potent antibodies that endure for at least three months, according to a study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Researchers studied the immune response of 34 adult participants from the first stage of a clinical trial. The vaccine, mRNA-1273, is administered in two injections given 28 days apart.

According to experts, even if the antibodies fade over time, the immune system will remember the virus if re-exposed and produce new antibodies. As per the study, the shots may help produce a type of immune cell that will help the system remember the virus. However, this couldn’t be conformed. They said they can also be sure after a longer study is performed.
