Scientists discover tiny antibody that completely neutralises novel coronavirus

The researchers set out to isolate the gene for one or more antibodies that block the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which would allow for mass production.

Scientists, including one of Indian origin, have isolated the smallest biological molecule to date that they say completely and specifically neutralises the SARS-CoV-2 virus which causes COVID-19.

Ten times smaller than a full-sized antibody, the molecule has been used to construct a drug — known as Ab8 — for potential use as a therapeutic and prophylactic against SARS-CoV-2, according to the study published in the journal Cell.
