Scientists have identified an antibody in a blood sample from a patient that successfully recovered from Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) dating back to 2003.
Scientists have now identified an antibody that is capable of killing COVID-19, and its called S309.
What is special about this antibody is that it neutralizes not only COVID-19, but also other coronaviruses.
Scientists also noted that combining S309 with other weaker antibodies from the recovered SARS patient enhanced the neutralization of COVID-19.
The researchers hope that once more conclusive research is done that S309 either in a singular form, or combined with multiple other antibodies will become a viable treatment for COVID-19 patients.
