China preparing to Stop the Pandemic Without a Vaccine!!
The corona virus emerged in China towards the end of last year before it spread to the world. Nations around the globe are engaged in developing a potential covid-19 vaccine or treatment.
Using antibodies in drug treatments is certainly not a new methodology it has been fruitful in treating several other viruses including HIV, Ebola and MERS.
China as of now has five potential coronavirus vaccines at the human trial stage and in excess of 100 vaccines are underway globally. However,as indicated by the World Health Organization, developing a vaccine could take 12 to 18 months.
At this phase of time, A Chinese Laboratory is developing a drug that could be a quicker and increasingly proficient approach to stop the global march of the coronavirus. They believe that the drug has the ability to fight the corona virus.
Sunny Xie, the director of the university's Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics and his scientists began inquires about the virus since the flare-up began in China.
The research team has been working day and night for the development of an antibody that could possibly provide a potential "cure" for the disease and abbreviate the recuperation time. The drug they have developed has been successful at the animal testing stage. When the neutralising antibodies were injected into mice, the viral load was reduced by a factor of 2,500 in 5 days.
As per the research team, their expertise is single-cell genomics rather than immunology or virology. They were thrilled when they realised that the single-cell genomic approach can viably discover the neutralising antibody.
They believe that the drug should be ready for use later this year that could possibly fight the virus, which has infected 5,198,307 individuals around the globe and killed more than 334,689.They are seeking for the neutralised antibodies to become a specialised drug that would stop the pandemic. They believe they would be able to stop the pandemic with a effective drug, even without a vaccine
