There has been update from China provides relief amid the outbreak of Coronavirus. Chinese scientists claim that they have developed a drug that can stop the spread of corona. If this claim of scientists proves to be true, then the world waiting for vaccine can be free from the deadly virus.
The team of scientists at China’s prestigious Peking University are testing the drug. Not only can infected patients be cured soon, but it also builds immunity against the virus for a short period. Sunney Xie, director of the University’s Beijing Advanced Innovation Center for Genomics, said drug testing on animals has been successful.
They reported that when we injected this neutralizing antibody into the infected mice, the viral load was reduced by a factor of 2,500 five days later. This means that the drug has a therapeutic effect. This drug uses neutralizing antibodies prepared by the human immune system to prevent the virus from infecting cells. Which was separated from the blood of 60 patients who were cured of corona by the team.
