The 1st generation monoclonal antibodies to #SARSCoV2 are just at the starting gate. More to come, lasting longer (e.g. 6 months) and nanobodies that can address scalability and cost issues by
What if it were possible to synthesize an antibody that protects not just against the coronavirus -- but against a range of similar viruses? These scientists say they are closing in on the goal.

The Race for a Super-Antibody Against the #Coronavirus. Scientists are chasing the pandemic’s holy grail: an antibody that protects against not just the virus, but also related pathogens that may threaten humans, by via #Covid19
NEW: Everyone is talking about the Regeneron and Lilly monoclonal antibodies. But some scientists are betting on "Prometheus," a ragtag group of scientists who are months behind in the competition — and yet may deliver the most powerful antibody. 1/x
What if it were possible to synthesize an antibody that protects not just against the coronavirus -- but against a range of similar viruses? These scientists say they are closing in on the goal. 
What if we had a treatment not just for Covid-19, but that also protected against SARS and future coronaviruses? with the story of one team of scientists working to do just that
"Even dozens of companies manufacturing antibodies could not produce the billions of doses required for the world — or just the minimum estimate of 25 million doses needed for Covid-19 patients and high-risk people in the US alone." via
Great deep dive by into the world of therapeutic antibodies, prominently featuring my friend Dr. Kartik and the excellent work done by the Prometheus consortium that he leads.
Kartik Chandran, Ph.D., talks to about the efforts of a multi-institutional group he is leading that seeks to discover a potent, long-lasting antibody effective against a range of #coronaviruses, not just the one that causes #COVID19.
Monoclonal Antibodies for #SARSCoV2 #COVID19 (Regeneron, Eli Lilly, and Prometheus) Great report by [1] Monoclonal antibodies are artificially synthesized copies of the most effective antibodies produced naturally by patients.
Fantastic piece by on the quest for a more powerful anti-COVID antibody therapeutic.
#MustRead overview of efforts to produce monoclonal antibodies for #COVID19, inclu promising work by . notes access challenges - 💰, complexity, manufacturing capacity - highlighted by IAVI & #ActForAccess
Monoclonal antibodies could play an important role to fight #COVID19. However, there are several #access2meds barriers to make the available to millions of people: - Complex to manufacture - Expensive - Effective only for a few weeks
