Door-to-door surveillance surveys can provide more precise estimates of how many people are infected with COVID-19 or have immunity to COVID-19 at any given point in time than relying on self-reporting and self-testing, a Cornell-led research group has found.
The inflammatory response from adaptive immune cells – such as B and T lymphocytes – clears the body of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, but at the same time, it also causes the characteristic symptoms of COVID-19, a new study finds.
Severe COVID-19 infection triggers changes that affect gene expression in immune system stem cells, causing alterations in the body’s immune response, according to a new study by Weill Cornell Medicine and Jackson Laboratory investigators.
Pregnant women who had a previous COVID-19 infection and received full vaccination and a booster have the strongest immune protection from the disease – and pass that protection along to their unborn babies, according to a new study.
A new study led by Weill Cornell Medicine and NewYork-Presbyterian investigators has found that the risk of long COVID and its symptoms present very differently across diverse populations and suggests that further investigation is needed to accurately define the disease and improve diagnosis and treatment.
