Covid-19: immune memory could last more than eight months

The more time passes, the more perspective we have on the natural immunity developed by ex-Covid-19 patients. In November, it could be said that antibodies against Sars-CoV-2 are effective for at least six months. This week, a new study published in Science lengthens the delay: most former patients seem to remain immune for up to […]

New drug should protect against Covid-19

Berlin / LondonBritish scientists are testing a new drug in two studies that could prevent the outbreak of Covid 19 disease after possible contact with the virus. The hope lies in an artificially produced antibody cocktail. The drug AZD7442 was jointly developed by the pharmaceutical company Astrazeneca and the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation […]

Hope against Corona? New antibody drug being tested

The drug AZD7442 consists of two different antibodies that were raised in the laboratory. It was jointly developed by drug maker Astrazeneca and the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH). This particular combination of antibodies could make people infected with the coronavirus directly exposed to protect you from developing the disease Covid-19. The […]
