The first vaccine in the world against coronavirus May 08, 2020 | 12:08 / Interesting information

Italian researchers have revealed plans to test a vaccine on humans after claiming their jab is the 'first in the world' to neutralise the virus.

Scientists gave mice the jab - which is being developed by Rome-based Takis Biotech - and took the antibodies they made in response. 

Antibodies are substances produced by the immune system to remember how to fight off a specific infection, and are vital for immunity. 

Preliminary results from lab tests showed the antibodies created in test mice were able to stop human cells being infected with the coronavirus.
