Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine say neutralizing nanobodies extracted from llamas could be used as an inhalable therapeutic against SARS-CoV-2.

They can also be fashioned into an inhalable mist to deliver antiviral therapy directly into the lungs, where they’re most needed.
