Scientists report major advance in human antibody therapy against deadly Hendra virus
Date:10/19/2011

outbreak in Australia has been unprecedented. Since late June, there have been 18 separate outbreaks of Hendra virus infection of horses in Queensland and New South Wales resulting in the deaths of numerous animals. Hendra infection was also reported in a dog, but fortunately, no cases of human infection have been seen this year. The most recent appearance of Hendra virus was on Oct. 11, 2011, with health officials declaring it endemic in New South Wales in addition to Queensland.

"There are currently no licensed and approved vaccines or therapeutics for prevention and treatment of disease caused by these viruses for humans or livestock," said Dr. Broder. "This human monoclonal antibody is the first effective antiviral drug against Hendra virus and Nipah virus that has a real potential for human therapeutic applications."

The human monoclonal antibody, m102.4 is protected under issued and pending patents in many countries around the world.
