Scientists Discovered an Antibody That Can Take Out All COVID-19 Variants

| COVID-19 vaccines have been effective at keeping people from getting severely ill and dying from the virus, but they’ve required different boosters to try to keep on top of all of the coronavirus variants that have popped up. Now, researchers have discovered an antibody that neutralizes all known COVID-19 variants.

| It’s important to note that this research was done in mice with built-in human immune systems—not humans—although studies on the antibody are ongoing.

This is very early-stage proof-of-concept work to illustrate that broadly neutralizing antibodies can be generated using a mouse model. Such work, if replicated and expanded, could form the basis of new monoclonal antibody products as well as a vaccine.


| At least we are getting there. Took a while.
