A team from the Primates German Center - Leibniz Institute for Göttingen Primates Research and their colleagues at Hannover Faculty of Medicine, the Göttingen University Medical Center and Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany) They have investigated why the DELTA variant of SARS-COV-2, the virus that provokes the COVID-19, spreads so effectively and if the Delta Plus viruses are more dangerous.

In his work, published in Cell Reports magazine, they could demonstrate that Delta and Delta Plus infect the lung cells more effectively than the original virus. In addition, one of the four antibodies used to treat the COVID-19 was not effective against Delta, and Delta Plus was even resistant against two therapeutic antibodies.

In the same way, the antibodies generated after vaccination with the vaccines of Biontech-Pfizer and Oxford-AstraZeneca were also less effective against Delta and Delta Plus compared to the original virus. On the other hand, these variants were inhibited comparable, which suggests that Delta Plus may not suppose an increased risk for vaccinated people than delta.

Finally, it was discovered that individuals vaccinated first with Oxford-Astrazeneca and then with Biontech-Pfizer had significantly more antibodies that inhibited delta than individuals vaccinated twice with Oxford-Astrazeneca. Thus, they demonstrate the combination of two vaccines can induce a particularly strong immune protection against the variants of SARS-COV-2.
