Blood samples were taken via retro-orbital bleeding 14 h after administration of CVnCoV or buffer. Serum cytokines (IFN-γ, IL-1β, TNF, IL-6, IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13) were assessed using cytometric bead array using the BD FACS CANTO II. Serum was diluted 1:4 and BD Bioscience mouse cytokine flex sets were used according to the manufacturer’s protocol to determine serum cytokine levels.

The following flex sets were used: Mouse IFN-γ Flex Set RUO (A4) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558296); Mouse Il-13 Flex Set RUO (B8) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558349); Mouse IL-1β Flex Set RUO (E5) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 560232); Mouse Il-4 Flex Set RUO (A7) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558298); Mouse Il-5 Flex Set RUO (A6) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558302); Mouse IL-6 Flex Set RUO (B4) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558301); Mouse TNF Flex Set RUO (C8) (BD Bioscience, Cat. 558299).

IFN-α was quantified using VeriKine-HS Mouse IFNα Serum ELISA Kit (pbl, Cat. 42115-1) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Sera were diluted 1:100 and 50 µl of the dilution was tested.
