Antibodies to the omicron-strain learned to produce with the help of “Sputnik V”



As it became known, “Sputnik V” can also be used to produce antibodies to the newest omicron strain COVID-19.

According to the developers of the domestic vaccine, all tested samples of people revaccinated with Sputnik V developed antibodies to the omicron strain of coronavirus.

Moreover, the level of neutralizing antibodies to omicron in the sera of revaccinated persons is slightly higher than the level of antibodies to the original strain of coronavirus (B.1.1.1.) In the sera of vaccinated persons.

Recall that the newest mutation of the coronavirus under the code B.1.1.529 was identified on November 11, 2021 in South Africa. The first confirmed cases of infection date from November 24.

Despite the fact that the omicron strain is relatively “young”, it has already been recognized as dangerous at the level of the World Health Organization (WHO).
