Scientists Have Now Discovered Antibody That ‘Neutralizes’ COVID-19 Virus

Published

on

It looks like we’re finally getting some good news on the coronavirus front as scientists working at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine have discovered “the smallest biological molecule” that “completely and specifically neutralizes” SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.

The antibody is actually 10 times smaller than a full-sized antibody and has previously been used to help create a medication know as Ab8. Researchers say that the drug could possibly serve as a preventative treatment against SARS-CoV-2.

Now, the real question to ask here is how long it will take Dr. Anthony Fauci to come out and condemn this research and bring doom and gloom to rain on everyone’s parade. After all, he and fellow Democrats have a lot to lose if this pandemic goes away.

“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, chief of the Division of Infectious Diseases at Pitt and 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 drug has been tested in mice and hamsters and has been shown to be “highly effective in preventing and treating” the SARS-CoV-2 infection, according to the report. Researchers also say the drug does not bind to human cells, which they say suggests there may not be adverse side effects in people.

Currently, researchers are studying how the medication might be administered. Some are saying it could possibly be used as an aerosol and inhaled or through injection.

Another team of researchers at the University of Texas Medical Branch Center for Biodefense and Emerging Diseases and Galveston National Laboratory tested Ab8 and found that the drug blocked the virus from entering cells. In trials, mice treated with Ab8 had 10-fold less of the amount of infectious virus compared to those untreated.

This news is hot on the heels of the announcement that the world’s largest coronavirus vaccine trials, which were being developed by AstraZeneca, were put on hold.

“Our standard review process was triggered and we voluntarily paused vaccination to allow review of safety data by an independent committee,” AstraZenec said in a previously released statement. “This is a routine action which has to happen whenever there is a potentially unexplained illness in one of the trials, while it is investigated, ensuring we maintain the integrity of the trials.”

“In large trials, illnesses will happen by chance but must be independently reviewed to check this carefully,” the statement continued. “We are working to expedite the review of the single event to minimize any potential impact on the trial timeline. We are committed to the safety of our participants and the highest standards of conduct in our trials.”

Pay attention to to how the mainstream media responds to this news. If they are super critical and absolutely seem to be looking for ways to shoot it down, then you have all the proof you need that the Democratic Party is fully attempting to capitalize on the pandemic to take down Trump.

The Trump team (and America, in general) scored a big win on Wednesday. Ultimately, Nevada could potentially swing back toward President Trump if all goes according to plan. Now, the lawyers just have to provide the evidence. Here’s the deal, via Washington Examiner: In its first court victory, a Nevada judge has agreed to let the Trump campaign present its evidence that fraud and illegalities plagued the state’s election, enough to reverse Joe Biden’s win and set an example for other state challenges. According to Trump officials, the judge set a Dec. 3 hearing date and is allowing 15 depositions. What’s more, the campaign plans to present its evidence that could result in the rejection of tens of thousands of mail-in ballots in Democratic Clark County where Biden ballots outnumbered Trump ballots by 91,000 in unofficial results.

Pelosi. Newsom. Phil Murphy. All have been caught doing things during the pandemic that they’ve cautioned the public against doing. That would be called hypocrisy – do as I say, not as I do. Now, another far-left radical has been busted in the act. It’s as if these libs think they won’t get caught. From The Daily Wire: Denver Mayor Michael Hancock (D) apologized and asked for the public’s forgiveness on Wednesday evening after it was revealed that he was traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday despite his own Twitter account cautioning against travel “if you can” earlier in the day.
