Antibody-based treatments: From convalescent plasma to single cell immune sequencing
For over 100 years, physicians and scientists have been scrambling to respond to pandemics. Antibodies produced in the immune system of survivors are still the most potent protectant against waves of infectious disease. With the advent of single cell sequencing, we now have a technology that can enable the detection of antibodies against infection in a matter of days.
Learn about the historical and modern progress of antibody-based therapies for infectious diseases, ranging from Spanish Flu, Ebola, and now malaria and COVID-19, in this survey of the latest research.
