Researchers have launched a new interactive tool that compares hospital capacity with projected demand throughout the nation's 306 hospital regions. The app provides a clear picture of best and worst scenarios across each region for hospital capacity during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Cholesterol-lowering statins show promise for the treatment of severe coronavirus infections. Statins lowered the death rate and decreased the need for mechanical ventilation in patients hospitalized for severe COVID-19.
Researchers found no evidence NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen, may result in worse outcomes for some COVID-19 patients or help control the virus. TNF blockers and JAK inhibitors, used to treat inflammation and arthritis, were also found to be safe to use. However, low amounts of prednisolone or tacrolimus therapy may be useful in treating coronavirus infection.
Study identifies 275 ways to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 when countries eventually attempt to reduce social distancing pract
Study provides first potential targets for effective immune responses against COVID-19. The findings provide essential information for vaccine design against SARS-CoV-2.
The misconception that young people are more immune to COVID-19 is dangerous, and ignoring social distancing measures means the virus is more likely to spread among the young.
A new COVID-19 vaccine produces antibodies specific to SARS-CoV-2 at quantities believed sufficient for neutralizing the virus, a mouse model study reveals. The new vaccine using an innovative microneedle array on fingertip-sized pads, which increases the vaccine potency.
Researchers have identified a fully human monoclonal antibody that prevents SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, from infecting cultured cells. The antibody binds to a domain that is conserved in SARS-CoV-2, neutralizing the virus. The findings are an initial step towards developing a fully human antibody to prevent or treat coronavirus.
Couples who blamed their stresses on the coronavirus pandemic were happier in their relationships.
A newly created stem cell model demonstrates a potential route of entry of the COVID-19 virus, SARS_CoV_2, into the human brain.
A new study reports long-term cognitive problems that occur following COVID-19 infection may be a result of fatigue rather than pathological alterations in the brain.
