Antibodies to Neutralize a Range of SARS-Cov-2 Variants Identified

In a recent study, published in the journal Nature, researchers discovered antibodies that can neutralize a range of SARS-CoV-2 variants and other coronaviruses. In the future, this may help to develop treatments for the current COVID-19, and potential pandemics.Antibodies to Neutralize a Range of SARS-Cov-2 Variants Identified

In their study, the scientists studied a dozen anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies isolated from people who had previously contracted SARS-CoV-2 or SARS-CoV looking for such antibodies that would not lose their effectiveness after virus mutation and work against new virus variants.

Dr. Schaffner, a professor of medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases at the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, TN, who was not involved in the study, says: “[The monoclonal antibody treatment is] designed to prevent the evolution of the infection from a mild infection into a serious one. In other words, you’ve just [contracted the virus], but we can now give you a medication that will help prevent [you] being hospitalized and getting seriously ill.”
