Researchers discover antibody molecule they say can prevent, treat COVID-19
Potential breakthrough has led to drug shown to work in animal experiments
University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers report they have identified a tiny antibody molecule that neutralizes the COVID-19 virus in animals, and have used it to create a potential breakthrough drug that could treat and prevent the disease.
The researchers reported Monday in the journal Cell that the experimental drug Ab8 was highly effective in preventing and treating COVID-19 infections in mice and hamsters and has characteristics that could make it successful in humans.
The antibody component is tiny enough to absorb into tissue or be administered by an inhaler, and does not bind to human cells in ways that could cause adverse reactions, the scientists said after testing with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, the University of British Columbia and the University of Saskatchewan.
“Ab8 not only has potential as therapy for COVID-19, but it also could be used to keep people from getting SARS-CoV-2 infections,” said co-author John Mellors, head of the Division of Infectious Diseases at UPMC. “Antibodies of larger size have worked against other infectious diseases and have been well tolerated, giving us hope that it could be an effective treatment for patients with COVID-19 and for protection of those who have never had the infection and are not immune.”
The microscopic discovery is associated with an immunoglobin antibody in the blood and was found by “fishing” in a pool of 100 billion potential antibody components, using the spike protein for the COVID-19 virus as bait, the researchers said.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
