The Russian Sputnik V vaccine has been recognized as meeting Indian safety standards, TASS reports.

This is the conclusion reached by the Independent Security and Data Oversight Board. After the completion of the 2nd stage of drug research, the board got acquainted with the results of clinical trials and made a recommendation to continue the trial without changes. The board noted that the trials have once again demonstrated that the drug has a high degree of safety.

The research was carried out by the pharmaceutical company Dr. Reddy's Laboratories. Now the third stage will begin, which will be much wider. More than 30,000 volunteers will take part it.

The production of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine should begin in India. The Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) and the Indian pharmaceutical manufacturer Hetero have agreed on this. It is planned that at least one hundred million doses of the drug will be produced every year.
