It would seem that the pharmaceutical industry was preparing for the Zika virus almost a year ago as two vaccines have reportedly been developed already in India.

Bharat Biotech  International in Hyderabad, India was the first company to file a patent for a Zika vaccine and they are about to start pre-clinical testing.

“On Zika, we are probably the first vaccine company in the world to file a vaccine candidate patent about nine months ago,” managing director Krishna Ella said in an interview.

The company say that two candidate vaccines were created following research that began nine months ago and if trials are successful a vaccine could become available to the public in as little as four months.

RT reports: They will now be tested in animal and human trials. If those trials are successful, a vaccine could become available to the public in around four months. The best case scenario is that the biotech firm could make one million doses in that time, according to Ella.

Research into the vaccines began after the biotech firm legally imported a live Zika virus into the country last year. Ella has sought direct intervention from Prime Minister Narendra Modi since then, urging for the vaccines to be fast-tracked through clinical trials.
