“Far more effective than wearable forms of personal protective equipment, we think of AeroNabs as a molecular form of PPE that could serve as an important stopgap until vaccines provide a more permanent solution to COVID-19,” said AeroNabs co-inventor Peter Walter, professor of biochemistry and biophysics at UCSF.

Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco, reported Tuesday they have formulated a nasal spray that can help ward off the coronavirus. They are working with business partners to get it manufactured and clinically tested.

They call the aerosol spray AeroNabs. It’s not a cure, but it is an antiviral aimed at preventing COVID-19, the respiratory illness that has killed hundreds of thousands worldwide.
