A drug that can completely neutralise the coronavirus

post-image

Researchers at the Pittsburgh School of Medicine have isolated the smallest molecule capable of completely neutralizing the coronavirus. The scientists will now use that molecule to help create a drug for humans (called Ab8, for the time being) that could completely destroy the virus that causes COVID-19 and prevent it from replicating in humans. 

The full research paper can be viewed over here.

To date, Ab8 has only been tested on mice. Clinical trials are set to begin early next year and the scientists seem confident based on early results that they’re on to something big.
