EpiVacCorona's creators have chosen a name for a new COVID-19 vaccine

A new generation vaccine against coronavirus infection COVID-19, developed by the State Scientific Center for Virology and Biotechnology “Vector”, may be called AURORA-CoV. The decision to register the corresponding trademark was made by the Federal Service for Intellectual Property (Rospatent).

“The AURORA-CoV trademark is supposed to be used as the name of the new generation of the EpiVacCorona vaccine (EpiVacCorona-N), which is currently undergoing clinical trials,” the ministry said in a statement.

The application for registration of the trademark was filed by the “Vector” center on June 18, 2021 for classes MKTU 01 (bacterial, biological preparations) and 05 (amino acids for medical purposes, serums, pharmaceuticals, diagnostic preparations, etc.).

“Registration of a trademark for a patented product provides significant advantages in its promotion both in the Russian and foreign markets,” explained Grigory Ivliev, head of Rospatent.

The EpiVacCorona vaccine was registered in Russia on October 14, 2020, it was created on the basis of artificially synthesized fragments of the S-protein of the SARS-CoV-2 virus. On June 28, “Vector” submitted to the Ministry of Health the documents for registration of another drug – “EpiVacCorona-N”. The head of “Vector” Rinat Maksyutov said that the new vaccine will be administered three times: the interval between the first and second vaccinations will be 21 days, and between the second and third – 60 days.

On July 1, Tatyana Nepomnyashchikh, deputy head of the Vector Center, announced that EpiVacCorona and EpiVacCorona-N will differ only in the peculiarities of the production technology.

“Two peptides are combined into one for ease of synthesis, ease of scaling,” Nepomnyashchikh said, explaining that the letter “N” in the name “EpiVacCorona-N” means “new”, and also refers to the place where the vaccine was created – Novosibirsk.
