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.

A secondary analysis from the ChooseWell 365 randomized trial byHassan S. Dashti,Marie-France Hivert, Douglas E. Levy, Jessica L. McCurley, Richa Saxena, Anne N. Thorndike It is well known that #genetics plays a role in the development of #obesity, yet the influence of #genetic risk for obesity on #food choice behaviors is not well understood. Real-time assessment of workplace cafeteria purchasing data demonstrates that the highest quartile of a #genome-wide #polygenic score for #BMI (highest...

Fascinating social life of #skin#bacteria avoiding conflicts and fights while competing for #nutrients and space and maintain balance that determines the composition of our skin #microbiota . New study identifies interactions between two important skin bacteria B. subtilis and S. epidermidis: B. subtilis is an important protective bacterium of our skin and S. epidermidis is the most abundant member of the #skinmicrobiota This study sheds light on how #microbial communities define...

Another study funded by Genomics EnglandIllumina has received £28 million (US $34.4 million) in funding to sequence whole #genomes of 20,000 people with #covid2019 who need intensive care treatment and 15,000 people with the disease who exhibit more mild symptoms. Analyzing whole genomes may identify variations and specific genes that affect response to #sarscov2 , and enable #drugdiscovery and #drugrepurposing. The study will inform strategic planning for future waves of #covid19 or even other #pandemics. #coronavirus#coronavirusoutbreak#research#DNA#genetics#sequencing Source ...

In the times of #pandemic new ways of caring for patients remotely via #telemedicine, tracking medical supply chain using #blockchainhttps://lnkd.in/eZ6MYYC , and conducting global clinical trials are emerging. Large clinical trial SOLIDARITY has just been announced by World Health Organization. The trial will test four drugs to find out if any can treat infections with the new coronavirus for the dangerous respiratory disease. The promising candidates are...
