The report related to this antibody research has been published in the journal Embo.
Preparations for clinical trials begin
The researchers said that preparations are currently underway to conduct clinical trials of these antibodies. He said that these antibodies can be produced in large quantities at low cost and they can meet the global demand related to Covid-19 treatment. It is noteworthy that antibodies help the body’s immunity. They inactivate the virus by sticking to it.
