mRNA Vaccines Protect Against Serious COVID-19 During Pregnancy
The first large, real-world study of the effectiveness of mRNA COVID-19 vaccines during pregnancy found these vaccines, especially two initial doses followed by a booster, are effective in protecting against serious disease in expectant mothers whether the shots are administered before or during pregnancy.
People Infected With COVID-19 Are at an Elevated Risk of Neurological Conditions
The post-COVID brain is at higher risk of developing neurological conditions including movement disorders, strokes, cognitive and memory problems, anxiety and migraines in the first year after infection, according to new research.
Newly Discovered Barrier Prevents Immunity From Reaching Smell-Sensing Cells
A previously unknown barrier separates the bloodstream from the smell-sensing cells in mice, likely as a mechanism of protecting the brain, but may hinder the effectiveness of vaccines.
New “Slow Delivery, Escalating Dose” Vaccine Strategy To Help the Body Target HIV
Researchers at La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) have discovered how the immune system can transform into an antibody-making machine capable of neutralizing one of the most elusive viruses out there: HIV.
Vaccination Campaign Budgets Need a Boost for Disadvantaged Populations
