Interim analysis of this phase 3 trial

Randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled, phase 3 trial

25 hospitals and polyclinics in Moscow

Participants at least 18 years, with negative PCR and IgG and IgM tests

Randomly assigned (3:1) to receive vaccine or placebo

Two shots, 21 days apart

First dose, rAd26

Second dose, rAd5),

Both vectors carrying the gene for the full-length SARS-CoV-2 glycoprotein S

Outcome recorded 21 days after second shot (vaccine or placebo)


Sept 7 to Nov 24, 2020

N = 21 977

Randomly assigned

Vaccine group, n = 16 501

Placebo group, n = 5476

N = 19 866 received two doses of vaccine or placebo and were included

(2,144 participants older than 60 years, 1,611 in the vaccine group and 533 in the placebo group)

Vaccine efficacy was 91·8 in participants older than 60 years

Interim immunogenicity

Vaccine group

RBD-specific IgG detected in 336 (98%) of 342 samples

Seroconversion rate of 98·25%

Higher levels of interferon-gamma

(secreted by activated T helper lymphocytes, T cytotoxic lymphocytes, B lymphocytes and NKs)

Significantly higher levels of IFN-γ secretion upon antigen restimulation

Placebo group

RBD-specific IgG was detected in 17 (15%) of 114 samples

Seroconversion rate of 14·91%

(p less than 0·0001 vs the vaccine group)

Adverse events

Grade 1

7485 [94·0%] of 7966 total events

Serous adverse events

Vaccine group

45 (0·3%) of 16, 427

Placebo group

23 (0·4%) of 5435

None were considered associated with vaccination

Four deaths were reported during the study

Vaccine group

Three (less than 0·1%) of 16 427

Placebo group

One (less than 0·1%) of 5435
