H Nguyen, 2011, US Patent 20,110,166,328


Avian antibodies that bind to influenza virus are provided. The disclosed antibodies are inexpensive to produce and are more effective than previously used antibodies against influenza. The present disclosure provides methods of treatment, prevention and diagnosis using such avian antibodies as well as methods of producing the disclosed avian antibodies. Methods of using the disclosed avian antibodies to prevent viral adhesion of influenza to cells are also provided. A novel source of such antibodies is bird eggs from countries in which vaccination against influenza of various bird populations is legally required. The present disclosure solves the problem of the limited supply of antibodies for the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of influenza.

*Note: Normal Chicken IgY  and the HRP-Anti-IgY used in this publication were manufactured by Gallus Immunotech Inc.
