The biomedical research centres -- the Butantan Institute in Sao Paulo and the Fiocruz in Rio de Janeiro -- are currently carrying out the tests.

The Butantan Institute last week received approval from the National Technical Commission for Biosecurity (CTNBio) to begin the vaccination's third phase of clinical studies.
