Can We Use Antibodies to Treat Covid-19?
Potential vaccines for the coronavirus are all over the news right now, and we all hope that a safe an effective vaccine is developed soon. But vaccines aren’t the only tool in the pipeline. Right now there’s a lot of research happening around antibody treatments. When you get sick, your immune system produces antibodies to help fight off illness. Can we use these antibodies from recovered coronavirus patients to create drugs that help currently infected people fight the infection? We look at the research and the evidence around these treatments.
