Covid Vaccine Fuels 100-Fold Rise In Antibodies In Lactating Mothers: Study

A study showed a robust antibody response in blood and breast milk of lactating mothers vaccinated against Covid-19, which may help protect nursing infants from the illness

COVID Antibody Level Remains High For At Least 9 Months After Infection: Study
Two-Thirds Of Indians Have Covid Antibodies, 40 Crore Still Vulnerable To Infection: Govt

Two-thirds or 67.6 per cent of India's population aged above 6 years were found to have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies in the latest national sero survey. A third of the population did not have SARS-CoV-2 antibodies, which means about 40 crore people are still vulnerable to COVID-19 infection, the official said.

Scientists Develop Lab Test To Detect Protective Effects Of COVID Antibodies

New York: Scientists have developed a new lab testing procedure for the detection of antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 that gives results more quickly than existing assays and specifically identifies so-called “neutralizing” antibodies – those that protect by blocking infection of cells. “With many assays currently in use, we can detect antibodies, but that doesn’t tell us […]
