Biological E. Limited (BE), one of the world’s largest vaccine manufacturers, has announced that its Corbevax, India’s first indigenously developed protein sub-unit vaccine against COVID-19, received the approval from the Drugs Controller General of India (DGCI).

Corbevax is a “recombinant protein sub-unit” vaccine, developed from the receptor binding domain (RBD) of the spike protein on the virus’s surface combined with Dynavax’s CpG 1018 adjuvant with alum, which helps the body build the immune response against the virus. The vaccine has been developed by Biological E. Limited in collaboration with Texas Children’s Hospital Center for Vaccine Development (Texas Children’s CVD) and Baylor College of Medicine (Baylor) in Houston, Texas.
