      Adagio Therapeutics, Inc. (ADGI) stock is climbing high – What are the new updates? - Stocks Telegraph

      Omicron SARS-CoV-2 variant – What’s up?

      On 29th November 2021, ADGI gave details on the ability of its leading SARS-CoV-2 antibody, ADG20. This will help combat the Omicron SARS-CoV-2 mutant and other recognized variations of concern. ADG20 is an experimental monoclonal antibody (mAb) product candidate with wide and powerful neutralizing activity against SARS-CoV-2.

      What’s next?

      The COVID-19 pandemic’s worldwide magnitude has raised immunological strain on the virus. This is leading to the generation of variants with mutations linked with an escape from typical classes of neutralizing antibodies. Unlike many other antibodies presently offered under EUA, ADG20 has also been shown to attack an epitope that is evolutionarily conserved.

      Moreover, ADGI predicts ADG20 to continue efficacy against Omicron, as they have found in-vitro models with all other variants of concern reported before, due to the extremely conserved and immunorecessive character of the epitope recognized by ADG20. Furthermore, no changes in the Omicron variant’s spike protein have been linked to ADG20 neutralization resistance.
