New approach against chronic inflammation

Researchers at the Universities of Bonn and Sao Paulo have succeeded in mitigating chronic inflammation in mice using customized “mini-antibodies.” These nanobodies enabled them to dissolve molecular complexes in tissue that normally activate the immune system. The nanobodies produced may in future…

Molecule attacks coronavirus in a novel way

Active ingredient inhibits infection with so-called pseudoviruses in the test tube, as shown by study at the University of Bonn Scientists at the University of Bonn and the caesar research center have isolated a molecule that might open new avenues in the fight against SARS coronavirus 2. The active ingredient binds to the spike protein…

New promising antibodies against SARS-CoV-2

Study in Science: Combination of two molecules simultaneously attacks multiple sites on the surface of the virus An international research team led by the University of Bonn has identified and further developed novel antibody fragments against the SARS coronavirus-2. These “nanobodies” are much smaller than the classic antibodies used to treat US President Donald Trump,…
