ZyKoV-D is the very first vaccine in the world that has been developed through the plasmid DNA method. The vaccine has made use of the genetic material which has been derived from the virus. The genetic material can be either DNA or RNA-based. This is later used in order to create a specific type of protein that is recognized by the immune system. The protein makes sure that the immune system responds to the virus in the same way as the virus will, thus creating memory cells.

Development Of The Vaccine

Zydus Cadila’s vaccine has been developed after getting into partnership with the Department of Biotechnology. This is the second homegrown venture to create a vaccine that can be used in emergency situations. This has been preceded by Bharat Biotech’s Covaxin. It has been said that the vaccine is quite effective against different variants of the virus. It has proven to be especially effective against the Delta Variant in India. Thus, it is perfect for emergency use.
