A recent study posted to the bioRxiv* preprint server supports using mosaic sarbecovirus receptor-binding domain (RBD)-nanoparticles to discover therapeutic pan-variant and pan-sarbecovirus monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) and to induce mAbs by vaccination.
In a recent study published in the BMJ, researchers investigated the factors that might influence the long-distance (more than two meters) airborne transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS‐CoV‐2) in real-world indoor settings, e.g., workplaces and residential apartments.
In a recent study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers evaluated the effectiveness of the BNT162b2 vaccine against the new severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) variant of concern (VOC) Omicron in five to 11-year-old children.
In a recent study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, researchers investigated the neutralization sensitivity of the emerging Omicron sub-variants, BA.2.12.1, BA.4, and BA.5.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that mothers to continue breastfeeding for two years or beyond.
