Adenovirus type 5 encoding sars cov 2 spike protein - a recombinant, replication deficient coronavirus vaccine composed of a genetically engineered adenovirus type 5 (ad5) vector that expresses full length sars cov 2 spike protein (sp), with potential immunomodulating and anti covid 19 activities. Upon intramuscular administration of the ad5 ncov vaccine, the ad5 infects human cells, which produce the sars cov 2 sp, and travel to the lymph nodes where the immune system creates anti sars cov 2 sp antibodies. The antibodies recognize the sp and kill sars cov 2. This prevents sars cov 2 infection. Sp, usually found on the surface of sars cov 2, plays an essential role in the infection pathway of the sars cov 2 virus.
