The Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences has succeeded in obtaining an antibody from the blood of patients with neo-coronary pneumonia that can neutralise the virus. This is the first time That Russian researchers have obtained antibodies that can neutralise the virus, according to the Russian news agency. Previously, researchers in other countries have discovered antibodies that can neutralise the virus.
To obtain this antibody, the researchers used blood samples from patients with the new coronavirus and the unique technique of sorting individual B lymphocytes, said Olead Dorohova, head of the institute’s genetics lab. They found that antibodies obtained through the above methods were able to block the interaction between the virus and human ACE2 receptors, thus neutralizing the new coronavirus. She believes the results will help future studies of the immune properties of the human body after being infected with the new coronavirus, and the development of drugs to prevent and treat the new coronavirus.
In a Paper published July 14 in the journal Nature Structure and Molecular Biology, researchers at the Rosalind Franklin Institute in the United Kingdom and the University of Oxford said they could neutralise the virus with antibodies from the blood cells of the large alpaca, which could be used to develop new crown treatments. In a paper published May 6 in the journal Nature Letters, researchers at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands found a 47D11 antibody that neutralizes the neutrality of the new coronavirus from a chimeric antibody collected in a humanized mouse that produces antibodies to different coronavirus S proteins.
Recently, with the new crown pneumonia single-day confirmed cases fell, the Russian capital Moscow further relaxed control measures, the city of Moscow from July 13 to remove the mandatory requirements for wearing masks and gloves on the streets, the city’s sports, art schools to resume classes, allowing open-air public entertainment, more public places to reopen, but the number of visitors can not exceed the maximum capacity of 50%. As of 19:30 on July 16, more than 750,000 people had been infected with the virus, 11,973 had died, and 6,428 new confirmed cases had been reported in the past 24 hours.
