Who will make the race for the first approved Corona vaccine? Russia, China, and several North American suppliers are fighting for a place in the sun. The second and third parties should also benefit from the approval, as the demand is enormous among the nearly 8 billion inhabitants of the earth. One thing is clear; the winners of this almost macabre-sounding "Corona contest" will go through the roof. Those who receive late approval or no approval at all risk extinction. Admittedly, the world is looking at the long-awaited miracle cure. But there are easier ways for every individual to protect themselves against viruses.

    On the home stretch!

    Pfizer pushes forward. The U.S. pharmaceutical Company could apply for emergency approval of its Corona vaccine in the USA in November. According to Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla, the prerequisite is that efficacy and safety data are positive in the ongoing trials. An emergency approval would have the advantage that parts of the U.S. population, namely, the elderly or medical staff, could be vaccinated even before the official license.

    The third week of November as the target

    The North Americans, who are developing the active ingredient BNT162b2 in collaboration with the Mainz-based Company BioNTech, are aiming for the third week of November to apply for approval. Since the FDA requires data from at least half of the participants in the ongoing trials for a period of two months after the completion of vaccination, this would be the timeframe for an evaluation.

    Most promising applicant

    The vaccine from Pfizer and BioNTech is still considered one of the most promising in the fight against the virus. At the beginning of the month, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) confirmed that the testing of the active ingredient in the so-called rolling review process for approval in Europe. Similarly far as the German-American conglomerate, is the U.S. biotech Company, Moderna. The Company intends to apply for emergency approval in December. It remains exciting in the global battle for the "Corona contest."

    Alternatives to vaccination

    It remains to be seen how long it will take until a suitable vaccine is available on the market for all population groups and whether it is the final elimination of the pandemic. What each individual can do for himself, however, is to strengthen his immune system. For once, even the highly decorated virologists agree on this. It is also undisputed that viruses and pathogens can attack the body easier if the immune system is weak. One can bring about strengthening with healthy foods and drinks.

    Nutritional supplements have a targeted effect

    People who are healthy and eat a healthy and varied diet mostly supply their bodies with all the vitamins and minerals they need. Under certain circumstances, however, food supplements may be necessary. After operations, in the case of unbalanced nutrition, during pregnancy, or in the case of senior citizens, an undersupply of essential nutrients can occur.

    At the pulse of time

    Valeo Pharma is well in the running here. The Canadian Company markets a dietary supplement containing a highly effective antioxidant intended to support the immune system. The product is HesperCo and was approved by the Canadian authorities a few weeks ago. At the beginning of November, the capsules will be on the shelves of all major retailers in Canada.

    President and Chief Executive Officer of Valeo Pharma, Steve Saviuk, commented as follows: "We have high expectations for HesperCo, which will be launched nationally in the coming weeks, as the immune support it provides is needed in the current health care environment. We continue interacting with Health Canada in the review of Redesca (low-molecular-weight Heparin biosimilar) and are preparing for an early 2021 launch, pending its expected approval."

    Broad range

    In addition to HesperCo, the North Americans market innovative prescription products with a focus on neurodegenerative diseases, oncology products, and speciality products for hospitals in Canada. At the end of September, a total of CAD 6.9 million has been raised from investors. The money raised is to strengthen sales and fill the pipeline of future-oriented products.
