Snake antivenom is a medication made up of antibodies used to treat snake bites by venomous snakes. It is a type of antivenom. It is a biological product that typically consists of venom neutralizing antibodies derived from a host animal, such as a horse or sheep.
A similar technology is being applied for corona virus aka Covid 19.
Antibody derived from animals:
The Indian Council of Medical Research in collaboration with Biological E Company of Hyderabad, have developed purified antisera, raised in animals, as a prophylaxis and treatment for Corona Virus Covid-19.
Antiserum is blood-based serum containing antibodies against viruses.
Have we prepared ourselves to live and face Corona without a vaccine?
There are many virus which human being are facing without any vaccine. Hepatitis B and HIV are two such viral infections for which there are no vaccines. The Suputnik V vaccine is now a suspect because it produces symptoms as severe as the infection itself. The Oxford Vaccine is also in doubts as two patients have developed neurological problems and its trial is on hold in USA. So what will happen? Will there be a vaccine? Let us analyze various factors.
Scientists claimed a major breakthrough in the war with Corona.
Scientists at the University of British Columbia have discovered an organic molecule 10 times smaller than an antibody protein that has the potential to destroy even the smallest fraction of the virus, scattered in the body. This study has been published in the journal Cell.
A team of researchers from the University of British Columbia, Canada, created a drug using the smallest molecule, named AB8. Leading researcher Sriram Subrahmayam and his team found that mice and hamster organisms could be protected from the corona virus through the AB8 drug and successful treatment of infected organisms.
Subrahmayam says that a drug prepared with the smallest molecule can not only be better transmitted to the body’s tissues, but it can also be entered into the body through many subtle pathways that are not usually administered. . This will make it easier to completely destroy the virus present in any part of the body.
No negative effect
Researcher Subrahmayam said that this drug does not bind to human cells, which is a sign of absence of the negative effect of the drug in people. AB-8 can not only be used as a Kovid-19 key therapy but can also be used as a prevention to keep people away from the virus.
Researchers say that treating the patient with AB8 may give better results in the event of low plasma availability. This drug is successful in completely eliminating the virus in the body which can be considered as an alternative to plasma therapy.
Mumbai has reported 23,000 fresh infections in past 24 hours, the highest in any state of India on any single day. But switch on any TV channel for past one week, the Government is busy protecting Rhea Chakraborty from arrest or bad mouthing Kangana Ranaut.
Kangana Ranaut had reached Mumbai and the ruling party Shiv Sena could only demolish one floor of her office in her absence in open defiance of rule of law, natural justice or common sense or politics. It also violates the general embargo on all demolitions due to Corona. Later Shiv Sena proclaimed it’s achievement:
The headline above smacks not just arrogance but also a lack of sobriety expected from a publication. The alterations made in the apartment of Kangana are very common and exist in every household including that of prime minister of India. If such demolitions are permitted no building in India would be legal enough to stand on ground.
On top of it a reporter of Republic TV has been arrested from the farm house of the Chief Minister (??) and is being kept in custody of police for several days. Why TV has not filed habeas corpus petition in High Court? Why it has not approached the concerned Magistrate?
