Researchers have found out that the antibody from a patient who recovered from SARS has been showing blocking Covid-19 infection in a laboratory setting.
This new finding is another breakthrough in the search for the treatment of the novel coronavirus.
In a GMA news report, it reported that scientist based in Switzerland and the United States previously isolated the antibodies from the patient in 2003. The SARS outbreak has killed 774 people.
The scientist have experimented with 25 different types of antibodies to see if they could prevent cells becoming infected with the new coronavirus.
In their research, they’ve found eight antibodies that could bind to both Covid-19 and the infected cells.
No human body has been experimented with the new method.
