Homegrown plasma therapy effective against Covid-19 mutations

Homegrown plasma therapy treatment for the novel coronavirus has shown efficacy against mutations, according to South Korean health authorities.

The treatment was found to have created neutralizing potency against seven strains — S, V, L, G, GH, GR and GV — as well as the two most-known mutations, from Britain and South Africa, in a cell level test, the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency (KDCA) said.

The plasma therapy is a type of hyperimmune globulin drug that uses blood plasma taken from people who have fully recovered from COVID-19 infections.
