Antibodies against coronavirus 'coldspots' discovered, may fight future coronaviruses: Study
Scientists have discovered regions on the coronavirus which do not change, or 'coldspots', and that antibodies specific for these coldspots may help fight future coronaviruses, reported news PTI quoting a new study.

The coronavirus keeps evolving, and in so doing it evades our immune defenses. But does the entire coronavirus evolve, or do some portions remain unchanged? According to the study, sieving through over 10 million coronavirus sequences, two PhD students at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB), Switzerland and affiliated with the Università della Svizzera italiana, discovered that some portions of the virus spike, or the molecule on the virus that is key to infect human cells, were remarkably conserved.
