    Ultrapotent miniproteins targeting the receptor-binding domain protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD and disease in mice

    Despite the introduction of public health measures and spike protein PROTEIN-based vaccines to mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic MESHD, SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD SARS-CoV-2 infections MESHD and deaths continue to rise. Previously, we used a structural design approach to develop picomolar range miniproteins targeting the SARS-CoV-2 receptor binding domain. Here, we investigated the capacity of modified versions of one lead binder, LCB1 HGNC, to protect against SARS-CoV-2-mediated lung disease MESHD in human ACE2 HGNC-expressing transgenic mice. Systemic administration of LCB1-Fc reduced viral burden, diminished immune cell infiltration and inflammation MESHD, and completely prevented lung disease MESHD and pathology. A single intranasal dose of LCB1v1.3 reduced SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD in the lung even when given as many as five days before or two days after virus inoculation. Importantly, LCB1v1.3 protected in vivo against a historical strain (WA1/2020), an emerging B.1.1.7 strain, and a strain encoding key E484K and N501Y spike protein PROTEIN substitutions. These data support development of LCB1v1.3 for prevention or treatment of SARS-CoV-2 infection MESHD.
