Synthetic Mini-Antibody Binds to and Neutralizes SARS-CoV-2
News   Nov 04, 2020

Extremely small antibodies, known as nanobodies, have been shown to neutralize SARS-CoV-2. But they're extracted from llamas and camels, which is problematic for a number of reasons. Now, scientists have identified a synthetic form of a nanobody, known as a sybody, which shows affinity to SARS-CoV-2 and neutralizing capabilities.
