In repeated tests, the group of scientists were able to demonstrate that the result is sustainable. They will now look for a potentially effective treatment for seriously ill coronavirus patients, according to local media.
"We are on the right track for the development of a drug against covid-19," the Helmholtz Center's Luka Cicin-Sain researcher told to the press.
Cicin-Sain and his team tested 6,000 different human antibodies. They found that more than 750 attach to the coronavirus and prevent it from advancing through the bodies of patients already infected.
