The good news comes from Berlin and scientists from the Charité Hospital in Berlin and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases.
The researchers found highly effective antibodies in the blood of people infected with the coronavirus. The advantage is that they act immediately, but offer only temporary protection because the body does not produce them the same as other vaccines, but come from outside to fight the coronavirus.
Everyone is hoping for a coronavirus vaccine and research is being done around the world. Obviously, this is the only way to regain a bit of regularity in the future.
“In the future, these could be used to protect people from contracting the virus and protecting them from the effects of so-called passive vaccination,” he said in an interview with RTL. Jacob Kray, coordinator of the antibody research program.
Antibodies are used as passive vaccines for other diseases. The advantage is that they act immediately, but offer only temporary protection. The body does not produce them the same as other vaccines, but they come from outside to fight the coronavirus.
“If the promising results of the animal experiment are confirmed, the antibodies could then be tested in clinical trials in humans as early as next year,” he said. Jacob Kray on RTL.
