The task of the expert group will be to establish criteria for the identification of variants of concern (VOC) and variants under investigation (VUI) of the SARS-CoV-2 to adapt vaccines
British study compared the effectiveness of the BioNTech-Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines against the Alfa and Delta variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus in symptomatic individuals with COVID-19.
Research published in Nature found 13 important loci in the human genome that are associated with SARS-CoV-2 infection or COVID-19 severity. The results are based on a meta-analysis of the genetic data of nearly 50,000 COVID-19 patients and 2 million controls from 19 countries. The research is part of the
Metabolomic studies have revealed that increased levels of monolaurin (a component of coconut oil) protect against SARS-CoV-2 infections. On the other hand, elevated cholesterol was associated with an increased risk of infection. Research published in Scientific Reports.
