Scientists have discovered that a vaccinated San Diego resident has produced antibodies that are effective against multiple variants of SARS-CoV-2, including Omicron. The research also identified three antibodies that can neutralise the virus, giving new insights into different binding mechanisms with the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein. The findings could help to…

By creating a drug that is based on part of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, US and Finnish researchers can block the virus from entering cells.
US researchers find that SARS-CoV-2 bivalent antibodies can continue to neutralise Omicron and Omicron lineages.
US scientists have designed a mathematical model that can predict COVID-19 vaccines’ effectiveness over the long term in healthy individuals and those who have cancer or suppressed immune responses.
Pre-clinical experiments involving cells from ICUs patients infected by SARS-CoV-2, and mice infected by MHV-A59 (murine hepatitis virus A59) show promise in treating COVID-19.
Anti-inflammatory effects of niclosamide, observed in a new pre-clinical study, were due to inhibition of the inflammasome, a protein complex presented in the interior of defence cells.
