The surrogate Virus Neutralization Test (sVNT) was designed in the versatile ELISA format allowing the quick and parallel screening of multiple purified antibodies and serum samples with potent neutralizing activity. With no species, isotype, or antibody format restriction, it is now possible to perform a preliminary assessment of an antibody or a sample neutralizing potential in less than 2 hours and without needing to use live mammalian cells or native viral particles.
The test works according to the principle of competitive binding between a purified antibody and HRP-labeled human ACE2 (angiotensin-converting enzyme 2), which is the natural ligand of the receptor-binding domain (RBD) in the COVID-19 pathology. For accurate detection, the test kit comprises the following reagents:
- Horseradish peroxidase (HRT) labeled ACE2
- Capture plate coated with unlabeled RBD
- The HRT substrate, TMB (3, 3?, 5, 5?-Tetramethylbenzidine)
- Positive and negative controls
The test works according to the principle of competitive inhibition. In the presence of SARS-CoV-2 neutralizing antibodies (NAbs), the interaction between the RBD and the ACE2 is hampered leading to low or no detectable signal. On the contrary, in the presence of unspecific antibodies (Abs) the formation of the HRT-ACE2-RBD complex takes place leading to an intense signal.
The test kit is for research use only and it can serve as a tool for immune surveillance of large populations or regions. The test also serves as a preliminary assessment of SARS-CoV-2 neutralization potential for candidate antibodies obtained either by in vivo antibody discovery technologies (e.g. hybridoma) or in vitro methodologies such as phage display.
The advantage of using the sVNT kit lies on the possibility of shortening the development times of neutralizing antibodies by reducing the number of promising molecules that need to be validated in traditional viral neutralization tests which are time-consuming such as the pseudo-virus neutralization tests (pVNT) and require access to facilities with biosafety level 3 (BSL3) such as the plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT).
The test has been validated according to the following methodologies:
- Testing anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies with proven neutralizing activity
Antibodies S309 (doi: 10.1038/s41586-020-2349-y) and CR3022 (doi: 10.1038/s41467-020-16256-y), previously shown to neutralize SARS-CoV-2 through conventional PRNT assays, were used as positive controls. At the same time, antibodies that have been isolated from the COVID-19 human antibody library against other SARS-CoV-2 antigens (S2 subunit of the spike), were used as negative controls.
Additional antibodies isolated from the antibody library against the RBD region were used to assess their potential neutralizing activity (antibodies with unknown activity).
The tests showed a strong disruption of the ACE2-RBD interaction in the presence of S309 and CR3022 antibodies. Moreover, most of the anti-RBD antibodies were able to strongly inhibit the interaction of these two domains in vitro. No significant inhibition was detected in the presence of anti-S2 neutralizing antibodies (F7, F8, A9).
Results indicate that the inhibition ratio obtained through this ELISA test correlates strongly with an antibody's potential for neutralizing the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
- Testing human convalescent serum
Convalescent serum (n = 28) was used to monitor the development of neutralizing activity and compared to samples from healthy individuals and purified antibodies with proven neutralizing activity. Results showed a strong correlation between exposure to SARS-CoV-2 virus and the development of a measurable neutralizing immune response.
But while some basal signal was detected in the serum from healthy individuals, the inhibition ratios were significantly inferior to the ones detected in convalescent serum samples.
