Dr Fotin-Mleczek said: “We are only giving out information on how to produce a certain protein and that protein by itself is not harmful because it is a protein that is currently in our body.”
However, the researchers will need to first test the effectiveness of their proposed coronavirus cure.
The vaccine will first be tested on a small test group of people to see whether it works as intended.
Dr Fotin-Mleczek said: “Probants will most likely receive two doses, with a gap of four weeks in-between them.
“We will study the immunological response after the first dose and after the second one, so after a few weeks we will know whether we have a successful vaccine.”
