Description

The RUTI® Vaccine contains fragmented, purified and liposomed heat-inactivated Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli. The vaccine has demonstrated a reasonable safety profile and potent stimulation of the immune response against tuberculosis. Much like the BCG vaccine, the RUTI® vaccine is also being tested as a prophylactic for SARS-CoV2. Sponsored by Fundació Institut Germans Trias i Pujol, the RUTI® Vaccine is being tested for prevention of COVID-19 infection in a controlled trial with 315 healthcare worker participants (NCT04453488).
