Hope in Sight, Scientist Identifies Antibody That Could Fight COVID-19 Virus
There seems to be hope and a bright light in the tunnel, as the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic intensifies. Medical scientists have identified the Antibody that helps prevent the COVID-19 virus from infecting living cells.
The Antibody was found to block infection by the novel virus SARS-Co -2 in living cells. The Antibody known as ’47D11′ targets the ‘spike protein’ of the destructive coronavirus.
This is a major step towards developing an effective treatment. When test where carried out on mice, it show that 47D11 antibody binds to this protein and prevents it from hooking on, therefore effectively neutralising it.
And Medical scientists are optimistic that the news discovery if injected into human alter the ‘course of infection’ or protect an uninfected person exposed.
The breakthrough could offers hope of a treatment for the Coronavirus pandemic which has killed more than 250,000 people around the world and infected more 3,000,000 persons.
In the 2003 SARS outbreak, known as SARS-CoV-1, European Researchers identify the antibody. The current research builds on the work that emerged in 2002/2003 about antibodies targeting the SARS-CoV.
Study also suggest that people with low levels of Vitamin D may be more likely to catch coronavirus and die from COVID-19 infection.
SARS-CoV-2, which is responsible for the illness known as COVID-19, is spread through small respiratory droplets from sneezing or coughing.
The virus hooks onto a locking point on human cells to insert its genetic material, makes multiples copies of itself and spreads throughout the body.
The successful antibody, 47D11, binds to an enzyme called ACE2 – which is also present in SARS-CoV-2 – and acts as the virus’s ‘doorway’ to human cells.
Although this new findings is an interesting development in the fight against the pandemic, injecting people with antibodies is not without risk and it would need to undergo proper clinical trials.
