In a recent study published in the Molecular Therapy journal, researchers assessed the efficacy of the scFv76 antibody against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) lung damage. Study: Spike mutation resilient scFv76 antibody counteracts SARS-CoV-2 lung damage upon aerosol…

Synthetic mucin gels against HIV-1 and HSV-2 transmission

In a recent study published in the Advanced Science journal, researchers assessed the effectiveness of synthetic mucin gels in the inhibition of human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1) and herpes simplex virus-2 (HSV-2) transmission. Study: Synthetic Mucin Gels with Self-Healing Properties Augment…

Why fatigue from long COVID goes beyond simply feeling tired

In a recent study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server, researchers in the Netherlands examined the role of inflammatory genes, cytotoxic T-lymphocytes (CD8+  T cells), and pro-inflammatory cytokines in long-lasting severe fatigue experienced by a large number of coronavirus disease…

Vaccination-induced responses for Omicron subvariant neutralization

In a recent study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server, researchers summarized existing data on severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) Omicron variant’s sub-variant (BA.1, BA.1.1, BA.2, BA.2.12.1, BA.3, and BA.4/5) neutralization. They also performed a comparative assessment of…

What is the SARS-CoV-2 transmissibility among United States residents?

In a recent study posted to the medRxiv* preprint server, researchers estimated region-specific basic reproduction number (R0) values for MSAs (metropolitan statistical areas) in the US (United States) based on compartmental modeling with reproduced severe acute syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)…
