Malaria is mainly a travel-associated infection in Belgium where between 2016 and 2019, 327 to 420 cases were reported annually by the National Reference Laboratory. Local transmission is only sporadically reported.
Results from early-stage clinical trials show two drugs that target the DNA damage response (DDR) pathway in cancers -; ATR inhibitor elimusertib and PARP inhibitor AZD5305 -; are safe and clinically beneficial in treating patients with advanced solid tumors.
The rare blood clot side-effect associated with some COVID-19 vaccines could be the result of genetics, new research has found, paving the way for a potential genetic screening test.
A recent study analyzed the antibody that mediated the COVID-19 vaccine-induced thrombotic thrombocytopenia.
A new study measured both proCPU and CPU+CPUi over time to determine the impact of SARS-CoV-2 infection on the CPU system.
Researchers led by Christopher Garcia of the Ludwig Center at Stanford University have solved the long-sought structure of a large signaling protein involved in responses to infection, inflammation, the generation of immune cells and when dysregulated by mutation-; the emergence of blood cancers known as myeloproliferative neoplasms.
Researchers have reviewed the currently published data examining the potential molecular and clinical biomarkers of COVID-19 severity.
Monica Melkonian wanted the Johnson & Johnson covid vaccine. It was only one shot and then she would be protected against the virus. So she was thrilled when the vaccination clinic at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center on April 7 had her first choice.
Researchers determined the neutralization potency of sera from people vaccinated with BNT162b2, mRNA-1273, or ChAdOx1 against the novel SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant.
Over 90 percent of patients with transfusion-dependent thalassemia, an inherited blood disorder, no longer needed monthly blood transfusions years after receiving gene therapy, according to an international Phase 3 clinical trial that for the first time included children younger than 12 years of age.
Researchers investigated the role of platelets in the adverse immune response against a COVID-19 vaccine.
Researchers assessed the intensity of association between SARS-CoV-2 infection and risks of various respiratory and non-respiratory complications.
In a recent study posted to the Research Square* preprint server, researchers conducted a systematic review to investigate any association between immunoglobulin A (IgA) vasculitis and coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in children.
The clinical and imaging characteristics of COVID-19 breakthrough infections in fully vaccinated patients tend to be milder than those of partially vaccinated or unvaccinated patients, according to a new multicenter study published in the journal Radiology.
In a new study, a team of researchers estimated the pre-pandemic incidence rates of adverse events of special interest now observed in association with COVID-19 vaccines in Canada.
In a new study, researchers engineered the bacterial strain, Salmonella, to express differently-sized antigens to serve as vaccine platforms.
One dose of Ad5-nCoV (Convidecia), a COVID-19 vaccine developed in China, is 57.5% effective against symptomatic COVID-19 and 91.7% effective against severe COVID-19 disease beginning 28 days postvaccination, according to a phase 3 randomized controlled trial published in The Lancet.
A collaborative team from the School of Medicine at the University of Cardiff, Wales and a range of US institutions used the UK's national synchrotron, Diamond Light Source, to help reveal the details of how a protein in the blood is attracted to a key component of Adenovirus based vaccines.
Researchers examined autopsy tissue samples of hearts from patients who died early in the COVID-19 pandemic.
