COVID-19: How is Severity of the Disease Related to Antibody Response?

Researchers from the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut jointly with teams of the University Hospital at Frankfurt/Main and the Leibniz Institute for Primate Research (Leibniz-Instituts für Primatenforschung) at Göttingen have studied the antibody response of COVID-19 patients in Germany. The aim was to gain new insights into the course of the disease and immune reactions, and to identify possible protection correlates required for the development of vaccines and therapeutic antibodies. The Journal of Infectious Diseases reports on the results of the study in its online version of 31 October 2020.
