U.S. scientists have reportedly identified a remedy called “Darpins,” which can neutralize various strains of Covid.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Covid-19 would have resulted in the death of more than 6 million of people. If not vaccine managed to slow down the transmission of the virus, the emergence of new ones variants remains a constant risk.
But the discovery of American scientists could change things. They would have managed to create modified proteins called “Darpins” effective against all variants du Covid.
So what is this famous remedy?
These are genetically modified proteins, with an action similar to that of antibodies humans. Called “Darpins”these proteins would therefore be able to attack different strains of Covid.
Published in Biorxivthe study reports that the Darpin SR16m and FSR22: “show a high degree of neutralization of coronavirus strains “.
Tested on mice, this remedy would allow them to lose a lot less weight.
In addition, the viral load identified in their airways was between 10 and 100 times lower than without the Darpins.

An upcoming miracle drug?
This discovery would therefore make it possible to produce medicines capable of neutralizing all strains of Covidmuch more effectively than the vaccines currently.
In addition, The Newspaper points out that Darpins could be effective against future variants of Covid still unknown.
