Awards for COVID-19 project, media work
A COVID-19 remembrance project, two videos, an article about bad brain cells and Stanford Medicine magazine have been recognized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Antivirals may benefit some inpatients
Elevated virus levels in hospitalized COVID-19 patients’ blood predicts worsening respiratory symptoms and suggests ongoing viral replication in later disease stages, Stanford Medicine-led study says.
COVID-19 virus can infect fat tissue
Stanford Medicine scientists’ findings could explain why obese people have a higher risk of SARS-CoV-2 infection and are more likely to progress to severe disease and die of infection.
Viral genome packing key in replication
Disrupting a virus’s genome packaging can halt replication and jumpstart a natural immune response against subsequent exposures, a Stanford Medicine study finds.
Mark Davis on immunology research
Vaccinology has taken great leaps forward in the past decade, largely due to advanced analytical methods as well as a shift in researchers’ focus from rodents to humans.
Hints into long COVID
People with lower levels of an antiviral antibody as well as those with lung disease take longer to clear COVID-19 symptoms, say Stanford Medicine researchers.
Gummy phlegm and COVID-19
Levels of a stringy, spongy substance soar in the sputum of COVID-19 patients requiring intubation, accounting for at least some of their breathing trouble. Development of an off-patent drug may prevent it.
COVID vaccine approved for young kids
Children as young as 6 months can now receive the Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines.
1,000+genes linked to severe COVID-19
Using machine learning, researchers from Stanford Medicine and their collaborators found specific genetic signals in people who develop severe coronavirus infection.
COVID-19 brain fog similar to chemo brain
Researchers found that damage to the brain’s white matter after COVID-19 resembles that seen after cancer chemotherapy, raising hope for treatments to help both conditions.
COVID RNA lingers in feces
People with mild to moderate COVID-19 can shed viral RNA in their feces months after initial infection, Stanford researchers find. Those who do often have nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
