I would anticipate that given the level of medical innovations that this country is so famous for then this new vaccine will become as sought after as their cures for HIV and Ebola, very useful for their aspiring space adventures to Uranus

How do I volunteer?  Sounds great with a garage lab as the source of this chemical wonder.  Whose son runs the 
"lab" and company?

100 volunteers? Surely this is jus a phase 1 study.

Do you think Pfizer, Moderna, etc, did their initial tests on "40,000 or more" without doing limited tests on 100 with half of them as a control group?

So who owns this company?

An extract from the link below "Baiya Phytopharm, Co, Ltd., a Thai startup linked to the CU Innovation Hub, the incubator setup by Bangkok’s well known Chulalongkorn University, received approval for a project to develop and produce biopharmaceuticals, including plant-based vaccines and therapeutic proteins, using molecular pharming technology."

It's part of Chula Uni.

 

They're developing two vaccines: one mRNA based, similar to Pfizer and Moderna, and this one, similar to Novavax.
