A vaccine currently in Phase I clinical trials was effective at inducing immune responses against SARS-CoV-2 in mice and rhesus macaques.
Researchers have found that molecules from ticks called Evasins have the potential to halt cytokine storms, the leading cause of COVID-19 fatalities.
Researchers in the UK have selected nanobodies that bind with high affinity to the Spike protein on the COVID-19 coronavirus, enabling stabilisation for imaging.
A collaboration aims to utilise a compound library of 15,000 clinically-ready molecules and screen then against three COVID-19 targets.
Scientists have identified that the TEX264 protein and associated enzymes protect the genome from damage, which could lead to new anti-ageing and neurodegeneration therapies.
Research determined macrophages’ role in forming a permanent cardiac scar after a heart attack, the researchers suggest altering this behaviour may make the scar temporary and allow restoration of heart function.
The researcher Sir Peter Ratcliffe and two others have been jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine 2019.
A new study has identified antibodies that may hold the key to creating the first effective vaccine against malaria infection in the blood.
Researchers have applied a computational analysis based on networks in order to identify biologically relevant phenotypes apart from those currently defined by the WHO...
Researchers have identified a novel imaging biomarker, which has been found to be able to predict all-cause and cardiac mortality...
A collaborative team of researchers has found that elevated levels of certain types of lipids in the brain may be an early sign of Parkinson's...
Researchers have shown that it is possible to identify genetic catalysts that accelerate the evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria...
