The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority ( Sahpra ) has for the moment rejected the application for the use of Russia’s Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine over concerns related to HIV acquisition.
In a statement released on Monday, Sahpra said it had requested the applicant to provide data demonstrating the safety of the Sputnik V vaccine in settings of high HIV prevalence and incidence, with the applicant unable to adequately address the request.
The Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine has not received Emergency Use Listing by the World Health Organization.Sahpra said the Section 21 application for Sputnik V by Lamar international Pty (Ltd) will not be approved at this time, due to concerns that the use of the vaccine in South Africa, the setting of a high HIV prevalence and incidence, may increase the risk of vaccinated men acquiring HIV.
“The rolling review of the Sputnik V vaccine will, however, remain open for submission of relevant safety data in support of the application,” read the statement.National Institute for Communicable Diseases acting executive director Adrian Puren said: “There was initial precedent-setting evidence that there was a risk of the Adenovirus 5 backbone being associated with HIV acquisition. headtopics.com
“The published data based on a well-designed HIV vaccine trial design may be a caution that there is risk for the Covid-19 vaccine to have a similar outcome in settings where there is a high prevalence of HIV. It would be difficult therefore to approve a vaccine given the evidence.”
In statement on Tuesday, the Gamaleya Center of Epidemiology and Microbiology, one of the world's leading research institution, has come out against these claims.“Sahpra has confirmed that the rolling review of Sputnik V continues. All the required information confirming that possible concerns about the safety of Ad5-vectored vaccines in populations at risk for HIV infection are completely unfounded will be submitted to the South African regulator.
“There is no evidence of increased risk of HIV infection among human population after common cold or conjunctivitis,” the centre said. Read more: IOL News »

The use of Ad5 in the vaccine raised safety concerns for populations at risk for HIV infection. Aren't you glad we have Sahpra who actually give a shit about you? 😏 Sputnik V drug uses a combination of two separate adenovirus-vectored constructs. One relies on the adenovirus type 26 (Ad26), while the other relies on adenovirus type 5 (Ad5), as the delivery vehicles for the antigen

AIDS is not a disease but Deficiency in immunity hence Acquired Immuno Deficiency Syndrome. Why would 'HIV' be linked to AIDS. Scientists still need to look for disease caused by 'HIV' and not AIDS. Mbeki was right 'HIV' cannot cause AIDS. Trying so hard to discredit any competitor of J&J Nothing to do with HIV chom.
Nothing of that sort. Its Gates tarnishing the image of the Russian jab 😁 If the safety data is not clear then 🤷🏿 No this is simple, Bill Gates said no Sputnik only J&J
