The roles of vaccine-induced SARS-CoV-2 NAbs and T cells in protection and disease


In a study published in Molecular Therapy researchers from KTH among others have generated several different DNA vaccines selectively activating neutralizing antibodies (Nabs) and/or T cells and used them in different animal models to study their individual roles in the protection against severe SARS-CoV-2...Read more

Researchers within the HPA have described the presence of the enzyme ACE2 in the entire human body, which is suggested to be the key protein used by the SARS-CoV-2 virus for host cell entry and development of the disease COVID-19. In contrast to previous studies, the study shows that none or only very low levels of ACE2 protein is present in the normal respiratory system. The results are presented in Molecular Systems Biology...Read more
