Plasma from recovered patients can help treat Covid-19

Apr 08, 2020 07:52 IST

A promising news in search for a treatment for Covid-19. Virus fighting antibodies from people who have recovered from coronavirus can help cure others, according to a research published in the American journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Hindustan Times has reported. The basis for convalescent plasma therapy is simple: plasma from a recovered patient carries the specific antibodies that can neutralise the virus. The therapy had consistent and safe effects on a group of 10 critical patients in China who began to show significant improvements after a single dose, says the study.
