More good coronavirus news. The medical teams for Pitt and UPMC are discussing new research deemed as a “COVID breakthrough.”
The live presser is below:
Monday, KDKA reported scientists at the University of Pittsburgh have isolated a biomolecule that “completely and specifically” neutralizes the virus that causes coronavirus.
“University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine researchers isolated the smallest biological molecule to date that neutralizes the SARS-CoV-2 virus, according to a report published Monday in the journal Cell. The antibody component is 10 times smaller than a full-sized antibody and has been used to create a drug known as Ab8 for use as a therapeutic and preventative against SARS-CoV-2, the report says.”
Let’s keep taking the wins.
