The authors claim that monoclonal antibody 35B5 has been shown in both in vitro (laboratory or test-tube experiment) and in vivo (performed on living organism) studies to neutralize wild-type Covid-19 (without mutations) as well as variants of concern (VOCs). The in vivo tests were carried out on humanized mice.

The scientists noted that the antibody also works on the highly mutated Delta variant, which has been responsible for deadly waves of infection around the world since it first emerged in India earlier this year.

“35B5 neutralizes SARS-CoV-2 [Covid-19] by targeting a unique epitope [part of the antigen molecule which the antibody attaches itself to] that avoids the prevailing mutation sites,” the study explains. In other words, 35B5 targets a unique part of the virus that does not change during the mutation process.

By targeting part of the virus which is not impacted by the mutations identified in circulating VOCs, antibody 35B5 demonstrated capacity for “pan-neutralizing efficacy” across multiple strains. These findings, the scientists argue, could be “exploited for the rational design of a universal SARS-CoV-2 [Covid-19] vaccine.”

The part of the antigen targeted by antibody 35B5 is also present in the Omicron variant, the researchers note.

The research could prove particularly valuable amid the spread of Omicron, which is highly mutated. Leaders and scientists around the world are concerned the mutant virus could evade vaccine-induced immunity and immunity gained from previous infection.

VIDEO: Triple vaxed Comedian Heather McDonald collapses after joking about unvaxed.

See here hospital instagram about the subject, where she is hospitalized in Tempe, Arizona.

McDonald collapsed and hit her head on the floor after she delivered her second joke: “I’m vaxxed, double vaxxed, boosted … and flu shot and shingle shot and haven’t gotten COVID and Jesus loves me most.”

As soon as she delivered the joke, she just collapsed and hit her head on the floor. Everyone thought at first it was all part of the act, but it was not. She was conscious, but clearly, all was not well. An EMT and a nurse happened to be in the audience … they rushed up on stage to provide first aid.

The 911 call came in as a seizure, but no one really knows yet. An ambulance came and paramedics tended to Heather. Heather tells TMZ she felt somewhat dizzy when she was on stage and then just collapsed.

She says it’s never happened to her before….

The comic went on to share a trio of videos from her hospital bed to her Instagram Story, and began her clips by apologizing for the collapse.

She also reiterated that she was sorry about having to end her show in an early and unplanned manner and that she had ‘never ever fainted in my life.’

McDonald did point out, however, that she would return to perform in Tempe in the near future. It is unclear if she will use that same ignorant joke again…

I guess he didn’t love u the most… jk
