Amid the rush to develop an effective vaccine against COVID-19, antibody therapy has become a major strategy to ameliorate and treat cases of severe disease. Armed with the capacity to neutralise pathogens and orchestrate the immune system, promising antibody candidates for multiple viral indications, including HIV, continue to emerge. Technology…

Researchers in the US describe how they utilised previously published scientific literature to guide the design of their potential COVID-19 vaccine.
A vaccine currently in Phase I clinical trials was effective at inducing immune responses against SARS-CoV-2 in mice and rhesus macaques.
In a new article, researchers highlight the need for treatments to combat the potentially lethal overreaction of the immune system in the progression of COVID-19.
A MERS vaccine, which uses RNA-based adjuvants, has demonstrated efficacy in non-human primates and is now being developed as a prophylactic for COVID-19.
