While the coronavirus continues to spread all over the world, the epidemic is trying to be slowed down with vaccines that are rapidly developed and widely applied. Scientists who continue to work on the virus that brought the world to its knees shared a very promising study on antibodies.
Achieving the amount of antibodies that will provide life-long protection from coronavirus may be easier than we thought, according to the results of the research carried out by the Washington University School of Medicine and published in Nature magazine!
Antibody refers to the substance produced by the immune system in response to the antigen entering the person’s body. Also called immunoglobulin. When the virus enters the body, it encounters the immune system and tries to be destroyed. At this point, proteins called antibodies play a very important role. In other words, an antibody is a substance produced by the body to protect itself against organisms and chemicals that it sees as a threat. It helps the immune system identify and eliminate threats.
The working principle of the vaccines, which we see as a remedy for the Kovid-19 epidemic, which has become the nightmare of the world for a year and a half, is basically to ensure that our body produces antibodies against this virus, thus catching the disease or surviving it even if it is caught. That’s why antibodies are vital to the Covid-19 scourge.
A pleasing news came from scientists who have been researching the subject for many months. According to a new scientific study, immunity after passing Kovid-19 lightly has the potential to last a lifetime. According to the researchers, the working of this system is explained as follows:
With the emergence of Kovid-19 infection, the number of antibodies in our blood is rapidly decreasing. This is what makes us sick and bedridden due to the virus. However, our body, which survives the infection slightly, reactivates the mechanism that produces antibodies in the blood in the bone marrow and the production of antibodies is continued here.
According to experts, the reason for the low number of people caught in Kovid-19 and then seriously ill again is the production of this antibody. This production can last a lifetime and give us life-long immunity, according to research published in Nature.
