Newark, DE, 10/3/2021. ANP Technologies, Inc. published its study titled "COVID-19 Neutralizing Antibody Surveillance Testing for Fully Vaccinated Individuals During Delta Variant Spread".
Abstract: We recently performed 568 rapid neutralizing antibody (NAb) tests on 164 fully vaccinated individuals who received either Moderna or Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine regimens over 7 weeks. The NAb levels against the wild type (WA1/2020), Delta, and Kappa variants were measured and compared. Depending on each individual’s medical condition and vaccination status, the NAb levels for most of the fully vaccinated people decreased within 2-6 months, while a small number of individuals either generated non-detectable amount of NAbs after full vaccination (e.g., immunocompromised), or had high NAb levels lasting beyond 6 months. Since the NAb levels vary significantly among different individuals and decrease over time, the deployment of a low-cost rapid test to monitor NAb levels against both the wild type and emerging variants among fully vaccinated individuals can play a very crucial role to control the current pandemic. Our study provides an example of using such a rapid NAb test to fill this currently unmet medical need.
