Proposal to study mixing of Covaxin, Covishield approved by DCGI

The Drugs Controller General Of India (DCGI), India’s drug regulator, has approved a proposal for a study to be conducted on the mixing of two COVID-19 vaccines — Covishield and Covaxin. According to reports, the study and related trials will be conducted at Christian Medical College in Vellore, Tamil Nadu.

“Permission has been granted for research study at CMC Vellore on mixing of vaccine doses,” news agency ANI quoted Dr VK Paul, Niti Aayog, as saying.

Earlier on July 29, the Subjects Experts Committee (SEC) of the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) had recommended that a study be conducted. The trial will see 300 volunteers being administered a dose each of Covaxin and Covishield.
