Researchers from the University of Bonn, along with colleagues from America and Sweden, have discovered and developed antibodies that may help against the coronavirus.
We are talking about fragments of antibodies, the so-called “nanobodies”. They attach to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and prevent it from spreading in the body. In addition, according to the university, nanobodies are much smaller and simpler than conventional antibodies and therefore more effective. They are also easier to produce in large quantities. At the University of Bonn clinic, two antibodies effective against the virus were fused together, making them even more effective. According to the researchers, such a promising therapy could be developed in the medium term. Ministry of Finance
