Researchers have developed a new brain implant which may help prevent Alzheimer's disease.
A newly developed antibody has shown to trigger a meaningful reduction of amyloid beta in patients with early stage Alzheimer's disease.
Breast milk may help train the circadian clock in young babies. The hormonal composition of breast milk changes throughout the day, with cortisol levels being higher in the morning and melatonin levels being higher at night.
Embryonic damage caused by autoantibodies is implicated in a range of behavioral and psychological disorders, including schizophrenia, autism, and ADHD.
Johns Hopkins University researchers propose using antibodies from the plasma or serum of those who have recovered from COVID-19 to help boost the immunity of newly infected patients and for those at risk of contracting the disease. Researchers say the antibodies may bind to and neutralize SARS-CoV-2. The technique has been proven successful in prior outbreaks, including the SARS epidemic and the 1918 flu pandemic.
Structural mapping of both SARS and SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, reveals an almost identical site on both coronaviruses to which the CR3022 antibody binds. This suggests a functionally important and vulnerable site for this family of coronaviruses.
Researchers have developed a novel antibody strategy to prevent the association between a harmless protein and a disease mediator that could lead to sepsis, and ultimately death. The findings could help to prevent sepsis induced by COVID-19 infections.
