20 febrero 2015

A super-potent antibody that requires a minute amount to neutralize the dengue virus has been identified by researchers. The study showed how a newly identified antibody 5J7, is highly effective in killing dengue virus whereby only 10-9 g of antibody is needed to stop the infection of dengue serotype 3 virus. This new finding gives hope for the development of effective dengue treatments.
