Did you have a recent (before the current #covid19pandemic ) flu-like illness caused by another #coronavirus? You may have better protection against #sarscov2. Coronaviruses found all around the world have been known for decades to cause what are usually much milder infections. There is emerging evidence that people who were infected by other #coronaviruses possess some degree of pre-existing #immunity A study published in Science Magazinehttps://lnkd.in/gxH-8FBfound SARS-CoV-2 reactive T cells...

Using 3D skin model, a proof-of-concept study demonstrates how #bacteria on skin surface leads to significant changes of thousands of genes, secretion of cytokines and growth factors. The model gained first insights on the microbiome’s influence on skin #xenobiotic#metabolism and #olfactory receptor expression.
