Anti-drops from chicken eggs protect against the Coronavirus
Scientists have claimed that nasal drops made using antibodies to the Corona virus taken from chicken eggs can give short-term immunity to Covid-19.
According to the Daily Mail, chickens make antibodies to infection just as humans do, and infection-fighting chemicals are found in high concentrations in their eggs, according to what was published by the British newspaper "Daily Mail".
Researchers are using birds to rapidly produce antibodies to the Coronavirus and extract them from their yolks in the hope that it can help humans, and they believe that if chicken antibodies are combined in nasal spray or drops, it can provide short-term protection from Covid-19.
Experts believe that two drops in the nose every four hours provide temporary immunity in high-risk situations. They also envision the use of chemicals derived from chickens when boarding a plane, entering a crowded area, or by health care workers while at work.
There is currently no evidence that chicken antibodies are resistant to corona virus in humans, as the study is ongoing, and includes 48 participants, while the use of chicken eggs as a source of antibodies is easy, non-lethal and cheap.
Obtaining antibodies from the blood of other animal species, including humans, is also a more difficult process, "There is a big opportunity," Stanford University scientist leading the project, Daria Mosley Rosen, told Science.
However, while the academics behind the project are optimistic about its potential uses, others are more skeptical.
