Revolution in medicine – BioNTech, mRNA and the Covid-19 vaccine | DW Documentary technology documentary 2021



With the help of mRNA technology, BioNTech has developed a vaccine for COVID-19. These assist the body to produce its own antigens to fight the virus – a medical milestone.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, scientists Uğur Şahin und Özlem Türeci have pursued the goal of creating cancer treatments that are specific to individuals. The firm they established, BioNTech, focuses heavily on revolutionary mRNA technology.

The “M” in mRNA means messenger and RNA stands for ribonucleic acid. MRNA delivers information for antigen production directly to the cell which produces proteins. Afterwards, these cells present self-produced antigens on their outer shells and trigger a specifically desired immune response.

Şahin and Türeci came up with the idea of using mRNA technology for vaccines in January 2020 after reading about a virus recently identified in Wuhan, China. Within hours, BioNTech decided to launch its search for a viable vaccine. The initial steps required lots of money and nerves of steel. The founders of pharmaceutical giant Hexal, brothers Andreas and Thomas Strünmann, were among the first financial backers.

BioNTech received hundreds of millions in funding and the search for a vaccine began. But many questions remained unresolved. In the end, persistence paid off. A Partnership with Pharma Giant Pfizer sped up the testing phase and the Comirnaty Concentrate was approved. Its efficacy proven, millions around the world have been vaccinated with it.

But what does the future look like for cancer research? And can mRNA technology aid in the fight against Malaria? The documentary shows what a wide-ranging affect this startup company in Mainz, Germany is having on global health. Film maker Michael Schindhelm has gained the opportunity to take a closer look at this revolutionary company.

  1. I'll never take an MRNA vaccine. They affect the nervous system in people who are suseptable. Like what they did to Eric Clapton who can't use his hands anymore from the covid MRNA. That's just one, there have been a lot more adverse reactions to these vaccines. It will come out eventually. Sad there is another cover up is going on with phamacutical companies.

  2. It's nice to know that BioNTech one of pharmaceutical company who was made the mRNA vaccine for Sars Cov2. It was great the vaccines called Moderna because they've researched it very well especially the two couple doctors.

  3. I’m sitting with covid with 39C fever, fully vaccinated. Very revolutionary things are those vaccines.
    Waiting for the comments with an explanation that the vaccine does not prevent from sickness and so on. But in that case I would not call it a revolution.

  4. These people haven't wasted their lives in the comment sections of social networks. Their work will help cure the world of illnesses. Just amazing work. We're lucky to have these scientists around.

  5. DNA is the ghost in the machine. Once we decipher this spirit, we can fix anything wrong with our machines (bodies). I'm talking growing limbs and organs, and even cancer can be done. DNA is only molecules after all, and everything in the body is made of molecules. I have hope. We should push this type of research like the next Manhattan Project which created the nuclear bomb.. This video shouldn't exist because we need secrecy and competition to facilitate this important research.

  6. Pfizer lining up the two people to blame if and when their vaccine side-effects become undeniable to the public eye.
    They are getting played and they are not even aware of it.

  7. I dont trust any vaccine my true vaccine is only trust in God.they are deadly to our body. N we cannot go to heaven ,people dont realized heaven is beautiful with everlasting life in heaven.

  8. I just wish that making money was not the main motivation to create a vaccine for Covid-19 over a Cancer saving vaccine which obviously does not fit the model for a money hungry investor and it's a same. Based on God's own words, it will be hard for a rich man to get into Heaven as they place money before God and people. Their fate is all good in their own mind while on earth however the pain and suffering will await them in hell.
