A research conducted in collaboration between the United Sates and India initiated in 2019 has been responsible in making Covaxin, which is a covid-19 vaccine that is more affective against the novel corona virus infection.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) of United States, an adjuvant known as Alhydroxiquim-II, that has been developed by ViroVax LLC, a bio-tech company bases in Kansas City has enhanced the efficacy of the novel corona virus vaccine ‘Covaxin’, and the NIH have also noted that, Covaxin had been found to be able to generate the antibodies, that are responsible in effectively neutralizing the Alpha and Delta variants of the novel corona virus.

The adjuvants are the substances that are formulated as a part of vaccine for the purpose of boosting the response of the immune system and hence they enhance the effectiveness of the vaccines.
