A closer look at long COVID symptoms
May 10, 2023 -- Patients with persistent neurological symptoms after SARS-CoV-2 infections were intensively studied and found to have autonomic dysfunction and differences in their immune cell profiles. The findings, published last Friday in Neurology: Neuroimmunology & Neuroinflammation, may help explain lingering long-COVID neurological symptoms, and lead to better diagnoses and treatments.

Targeting viral RNA to treat infection
April 26, 2023 -- Despite the rapid development of COVID-19 vaccines, the rise of variants forces scientists to frequently modify treatments. A new study published Wednesday in ACS Central Science describes a treatment that directly targets and degrades the viral ribonucleic acid (RNA) genome, reducing SARS-CoV-2 infection in mice.
