There aren’t a lot of details that are available about AZD7442 but if you would delve deeper into it, you will realize that this is a type of a possible combination therapy that can be used for some people. The status of this study right now is still in the recruiting stage which means that they are still looking for the right people to participate in the study. With all of the recent happenings, there is a possibility that this will not take place anytime soon. There are different antibodies that are being considered so that this study will still push through. Hopefully, this would be enough to create the right vaccine to completely eradicate COVID 19.
