The difference is down to the vaccination campaigns.
A study details how the virus that causes COVID-19 infects crucial immune cells and causes inflammation.
People who are vaccinated and have had a booster shot against COVID-19 recover from symptoms from the Omicron variant more than three days earlier than those with the Delta variant, a study said Friday.
A research team led by Jae Jung, Ph.D., Director of Cleveland Clinic's Global Center for Pathogen & Human Health Research, has uncovered the critical role a viral gene, ORF8, plays in infection and disease outcomes of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19.
For centuries, understanding the basis for how we detect, process and react to light, sound, temperature, pressure and other environmental signals has been a scientific focus. Science has advanced, and new understanding at the cellular level of ion channels—which are fundamental to these sensations and our bodies' functions—has contributed to important advancements, including the development of new and effective drugs. An indication of the significance of this science and research came with the awarding of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, which honored the discovery of the fundamental ion-channel sensors for temperature and pressure.
A research team led by scientists at Georgetown University has found that humans give viruses back to animals more often than previously thought.
A new study from the lab of an adolescent psychologist at the University of Virginia has found more evidence that teens who are not adept at managing relationships will show physical signs of premature aging as adults.
Medication abortion pills safe for early use in patients even if ectopic pregnancy has not been ruled out
Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital have found that administering the medication combination of mifepristone and misoprostol as early as possible can be done safely and can also help a patient determine whether their pregnancy was an ectopic pregnancy or not in less time than if they had waited for an ultrasonogram.
Hepatitis C widespread but rarely treated in postpartum Medicaid beneficiaries with opioid use disorder
Nearly a third of pregnant Medicaid beneficiaries who have opioid use disorder and are screened for hepatitis C test positive for the potentially deadly, liver-destroying virus, according to new findings made by a research consortium led by University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health scientists.
A hormone that triggers puberty and controls fertility in humans might be developed as a treatment for non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, according to new Rutgers research.
