Scientists at University of Pittsburgh Make Huge Discovery

Health Editor’s Note: This newly discovered antibody (biomolecule) is 10 times smaller than a regular sized antibody. The drug Ab8 which is a potential prevention against SARS-CoV-2 has been tested in mice and hamsters and since it does not bind with human cells, hopefully it will not cause negative side-effects in humans.
Ab8 has the potential to be used as a therapy to treat COVID-19 but also as a prevention against contracting the virus. This biomolecule neutralizes coronavirus.
Ab8 sounds hopeful as we continue to see hundreds of new cases of COVID-19 every day in the U.S. and thousands all over the planet. We need a workable plan to stop this pandemic and hopefully Ab8 will be an important tool in the anti-COVID-19 tool box…..Carol
