The antibody treatment President Trump received could BACKFIRE and actually ENHANCE the infection

Sharing is Caring!

“But even if solo antibodies or cocktails show early signs of efficacy, other risks could come into play. For one, the treatments could backfire in a phenomenon called antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE), in which a virus takes advantage of antibodies to enhance infection.”


“Antibody-dependent enhancement (ADE) of disease is a general concern for the development of antibody therapies because the mechanisms that underlie antibody protection against any virus have a theoretical potential to amplify the infection or trigger harmful immunopathology.”
