Why is the Japanese Government so tight-lipped on the status of the local vaccines? This is not the time for stereotypical inscrutability.

What's very conspicuous by its absence is any mention of Japan's own vaccine , presumably still under development by AnGes and Osaka University. I have seen it mentioned in other forums recently, even mentioning status of trials, but a stunning silence from Japan Inc. Are they being cagey about it or is there some share market manipulation going on ?

Still no news of the AnGes/ Osaka University vaccine. Did it fail, or is it in limbo due to lack of funding?

Where is the Japanese vaccine being developed by Osaka University and AnGes. No news at all, why is Japan so inscrutable

Not a word about the status of Japan's home-grown vaccines such as the one supposedly being developed by AnGes and Osaka University. If it's not going forward, please say so

I agree with other posts that Japan's response to Covid-19 has been woefully inadequate, There was much publicity in 2nd quarter 2020 about the vaccine being developed by Osaka University in collaboration with AnGes MG. Last I heard, this vaccine is planning Phase 2 trials on 500 people, which is a ridiculously small group to test a vaccine. At the end of the day, this effort will peter out, and the only guys laughing all the way to the bank will be insiders who capitalized on AnGes stock's steep rise in June; it has now fallen more than 50% from those highs and looks set to plummet further.

All this talk of foreign vaccines, but what's the status of Japan's home vaccine supposedly being developed by Osaka University in collaboration with AnGes MG Biotech of Osaka?

After a flurry of announcements in mid-year, which propelled AnGes stock up at a meteoric rate, there has been dead silence, and AnGes' stock price has plummeted. Was it all just an announcement to make a few insiders rich ? If so, it's particularly egregious, and the authorities should take action.

Still, a stunning silence about the AgNes vaccine from Osaka University. A flurry of announcements in mid-year sent the stock shooting up and no doubt AnGes insiders raked in several billion yen, the stock is now 50% down and counting. Another example of complete lack of transparency by the "inscrutable" Japanese, no wonder it's a moribund economy.

@Sven, my apologies for misreading your post. I agree 100% with you.

Vaccine, Vaccine, Vaccine !!! Yes, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, and perhaps soon, Astra Zeneca, are coming out with vaccines. Japan has "pre-ordered", but how well these orders can be complied with is very debatable. Both the US and Europe have to give priority to their citizens.

The billion-dollar question is : What about Japan's local vaccine supposedly being developed by Osaka University together with AnGes Biotech ? There was a big flurry in May/June, but nary a word after that. In fact, a recent press release states that AnGes has obtained approval from FDA for a medication to alleviate the condition of Covid patients. So, does that mean Japan's home vaccine development effort has been scrapped ? Is it due to lack of funding, poor trial results, or what ? Surely, complete transparency is required, or is the news being kept under wraps to allow a select few to make a killing in the stockmarket killing, while Covid continues its killing.

The infections are almost unstoppable without complete lockdowns. What we need are updates from the authorities on the status of the Covid-19 vaccine reportedly being developed by Osaka University. The Japanese people are likely to more readily accept a local vaccine, not to mention the fact that distribution will be considerably easier. It's essential that the Government adopt a warp-speed approach, and not stint on funding. This is a matter of life and death, surely the greatest crisis since the War.

Posted in: Suga vows to secure enough vaccines as hopes rise for breakthrough See in context

I am concerned about the complete absence of news about the Covid-19 vaccine supposedly being developed by Osaka University in conjunction with a biotech firm. There should be more transparency about this because Japanese people may be more inclined to take a local vax rather than a warp-speeded foreign vaccine.

What's the latest on the vaccine being developed by Osaka University , no news for the last 3-4 months. Are trials proceeding ? It's always good to have a home-grown vaccine .
