Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) is a newly discovered contagious and sometimes fatal respiratory virus. People often get MERS through close contact with an infected person. Scientists are worried that MERS may spread and cause more infections. There are no vaccines or treatments for MERS right now. Researchers think a new therapy called SAB-301 may be able to help. Antibodies are proteins the body makes to attack viruses. SAB-301 is made of antibodies made in cows to fight MERS. The antibodies are collected from plasma, the liquid part of cow blood. (Source:
