Its reported that the quality was tested against the World Health Organisation (WHO)'s standards.

A group of scientists injected two doses of vaccine into white mice, guinea-pig and cockerels and a second dose was given 20 days after the first dose.

Samples obtained from the vaccinated animals ten days after the second dose, showed that the vaccine produced the highest haemagglutinin (HA) antibody levels.
