It’s a small consolation, given the enormously disruptive scope of the pandemic. But it’s the focus of a new paper published in the journal Frontiers in Public Health by two Concordia researchers and their colleagues that studies the […]

New covalent and non-covalent SARS-CoV-2 inhibitors discovered in silico

With the onset of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, caused by the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), it came to light that there were no specific and highly effective preventive or therapeutic agents against this virus. The result has been an enormous amount of studies reporting the efficacy or otherwise of novel drug candidates or repurposed drugs […]

Vaccine development software shows promise in influenza effort, could help defeat coronavirus

A novel computer algorithm that could create a broadly reactive influenza vaccine for swine flu also offers a path toward a pan-influenza vaccine and possibly a pan-coronavirus vaccine as well, according to a new paper published in Nature Communications. “This work takes us a step closer to a pan-swine flu virus vaccine,” said Bette Korber, a computational biologist at Los […]

New study highlights risks associated with the sequential infection of influenza followed by COVID-19

A Liverpool-led study provides evidence that the ‘twinfection’ of influenza and COVID-19 may exacerbate the health risk associated with COVID-19. When multiple pathogens are in circulation at the same time this can lead to cooperative or competitive forms of pathogen-pathogen interactions. This concept of co-infection was evident during the outbreak of the Spanish flu in 1918 with secondary bacterial pneumonia […]

Thermally stable TB vaccine closer to reality thanks to microscopic silica cages: A promising TB vaccine can be protected from heat damage

Scientists working on a new tuberculosis (TB) vaccine have achieved a major step forward by showing that a promising TB antigen and a novel vaccine adjuvant can be protected from heat damage with a technique developed at the University of Bath. Their method prevents these crucial vaccine components from spoiling outside of a fridge — meaning a thermally stable vaccine […]
