doctors are working hard to develop a drug or a remedy for Covid-19. Promising a so-called anti-body therapy seemed to be.

In the fight against the Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2* researchers from all over the world are looking for a therapy. Covid-19* runs in some patients almost no symptoms, while others fight for their lives. In a clinical study have been transferred in China Corona-patients, antibodies of Recover. Also you can find here a variety of current case numbers in Germany, as a card*.

München – around the world are engaging Researchers with the Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2 . Feverishly search for a vaccine, drug or therapy in severely ill patients. to transfer antibody of already healed Covid-19*in patients on Sick, looked, as the treatment approach is very promising.

A first clinical study of an antibody therapy have doctors from China now published in the “Journal of the American Medical Association” (JAMA).

Coronavirus: anti-body therapy in China tested, Doctors from Wuhan reports

A team of Doctors from Wuhan reported, therefore, only of a significant legacy in the treatment of seriously ill Covid-19-patients. The therapy with antibodies have shown in comparison to a standard treatment within 28 days and no success.

In the context of the study 103 Corona patients. All were treated in the hospital. One group was administered blood sera with antibodies, a second group received a Placebo. The authors of the study point to the fact that the study was terminated prematurely, and possibly also as a result, the meaningfulness of the results was limited.

At a clinic in China, five patients with severe Covid-19-diseases of the blood have received plasma from humans and survived. But that was still no evidence for a General efficacy. Also, the medical journal reported online. The idea of using blood to heal Heal the Sick, there since the end of the 19th century. Century. Doctor Emil von Behring began the treatment approach successfully in the case of diphtheria. Behring was awarded in 1901 with the Nobel prize.

Whether an antibody therapy for the treatment of Covid-19*patients effectively, is also being investigated in other clinical studies. The result of the Chinese study is one of many.

What are antibodies against the Coronavirus

The Coronavirus Sars-CoV-2* gains on proteins – specific proteins access to the human cell. In the case of an infection, the body makes specific Antibodies – protein molecules against the Virus. People survive a viral infection, because your immune system neutralizing antibodies against the pathogen forms.

These are found in the blood plasma. Yet science assumes that people have after an infection with the Coronavirus* a protection. How long and how secure is this protection still needs to be further explored.
