Muestra de la infección viral y la producción de vacunas

David Prentice, Ph.D., Tara Sander Lee, Ph.D.   

Como resultado de la rápida propagación del nuevo coronavirus, técnicamente conocido como SARS-CoV-2, los gobiernos de Estados Unidos y de otros paises han pasado por varios intentos fallidos en la producción de una vacuna efectiva contra esta enfermedad que se transmite tan rápidamente.  Ha surgido una selección de candidatos para esta vacuna  y se encuentran en distintas etapas de desarrollo y de prueba.  Al mismo tiempo, se han manifestado otras preguntas acerca de la manera en la cual estas vacunas son producidas; inlcuyendo los procesos sobre los cuales millones de americanos tienen objeciones en material moral.  Hoy en día, la variedad de medios utilizados para producir vacunas es inmensa; en algunos casos son éticament lícitas, mientras que en otros los procedimientos que utilizan son questionables.  Para ayudar a la comprensión de estos modos de producción, ofrecemos una guía básica respecto a la ciencia involucrada.
