  • Researchers from the Netherlands and Japan have developed antibodies for the novel coronavirus that can neutralize the pathogen in labs.
  • The drugs still need to prove their effectiveness in human trials, but they might be ready for wide use before a vaccine.
  • Israel has also developed its own antibody compound, joining countries like America and Korea that are also studying monoclonal antibody therapy for COVID-19 patients.

But the months that have passed since the first cases were registered in China allowed researchers to study the virus closely and develop all sorts of treatment ideas that work.

But there’s another form of COVID-19 therapy that’s starting to emerge and it looks like it’s already showing promising results. At least two separate teams claim they have identified antibodies that can kill the coronavirus, and the good news is these chemical compounds can be built into drugs that could be available to patients very soon.
