Nano-sized vesicles with ACE2 receptor could prevent, treat infection from current and future strains of SARS-CoV-2 – BIOENGINEER.ORG

HOUSTON and CHICAGO – Scientists from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and Northwestern Medicine have identified natural extracellular vesicles containing the ACE2 protein (evACE2) in the blood of patients with COVID-19 that can block broad strains of SARS-CoV-2 virus in preclinical studies. The study was published today in Communications in nature. HOUSTON … Read more

Common cold may protect against SARS-CoV-2 infection and lead the way…

.The common cold can have some protective benefits against coronavirus infection. Camilo Fuentes Beals / EyeEm / Getty Images Some people are less susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 infection. A new study suggests that T cells from previous coronavirus infection, such as the common cold, may protect against SARS-CoV-2. These T cells target the internal SARS-CoV-2 proteins. … Read more
