Scientists Discover Antibody That Prevent Coronavirus From Infecting Human Cells

A group of scientists announced that they found the antibody that blocks infection by the deadly coronavirus. The discovery of a new antibody is a major breakthrough in this pandemic. It could help in the development of a vaccine against coronavirus which has killed 3,666,139 people around the globe.

The antibody, named 47D11, targets the spike protein of novel coronavirus. Coronavirus link this spikes protein onto the human cells and insert them into genetic material. It is the point where it makes multiple copies of itself and spread throughout the body.

Scientists disclosed that if antibody 47D11 is inserted into the uninfected person it prevent that person from coronavirus infection as it stopped the virus to spread into the body.

The European Researchers discovered this antibody from 51 cell lines from mice that have been engineered to carry human genes. Test on the mice revealed 47D11 attached with ‘spikes protein’ and stopped it from hooking onto the cell.

It is disclosed by scientists that this antibody also target the SARS-CoV-1 which caused the 2003 SARS outbreak. Now it also stopped the SARS-CoV-2 which is also the same family of coronaviruses as SARS-CoV-1.

Dr. Bosch said that this antibody has the potential to stop the further infection of coronavirus. SARS-CoV-2 which is also known as COVID-19 spread after the droplets entered in the human body when they cough or sneeze in front of others.
