A biologist told me about the study of immunity in recovered COVID-19

Scientists still don't know how long I had been ill COVID-19 remains immune to the virus, said the doctor of biological Sciences, Professor, School of systems biology, GMU (USA) Ancha Baranova.
According to biologist, coronaviruses that come in the population of man had already been studied.

Faster just to find out the duration I had been ill using to test for the presence in humans of antibodies. The test may be ready by may-June. The source code and the reagents for these tests are in countries where there is biomedical engineering. In Russia, the US and Europe it is.

Scientists still don't know how long I had been ill COVID-19 remains immune to the virus, said the doctor of biological Sciences, Professor, School of systems biology, GMU (USA) Ancha Baranova.

“The most important thing we need to know and what we still don't know yet, because we technically haven't run it yet: we don't know how long will the period of immunity. Immunity may be of different duration. For example, if you received measles vaccine once for life, then you measles is not scary. The second option, as hepatitis B. You have received a vaccination with a single protein of hepatitis b virus and for ten years all right. Then you need to measure the level of antibodies and if it falls below a certain limit, you have to spur him, that is, to raise the same antigen. There are immunities that are not very long,” - said Baranov.

She cited the example of norovirus, or the so-called “intestinal flu.” “Immunity for it lasts a year or two, and then man again, for this stuff to get sick,” said Baranov.

According to biologist, coronaviruses that come in the population of man had already been studied.

“We know that immunity to them occurs in humans, but not for very long. It may be that this coronavirus is not very long. But how would we know it? We learn only after the people who got sick recovered. We are monitoring to understand how long the immunity. That is, we have to wait a year or two to get the data,” - said Baranov.

She added that faster to find out the duration I had been ill using to test for the presence in humans of antibodies.

“There is no doubt that scientists are working on tests for antibodies. But one story that you do such a test in the laboratory. There is one jar, and you're testing with it 10. And the story about the available antibody test cannot scale as fast as that available test for the virus,” - said Baranov.

Earlier, the Russian company - resident of SKOLKOVO, has informed that has begun to develop such tests. By estimations of developers, the test may be ready by may-June. The source code and the reagents for these tests are in countries where there is biomedical engineering. In Russia, the US and Europe it is.
