AstraZeneca, U. of Oxford; Pfizer, BioNTech Ramp up COVID-19 Vaccine Trials

AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford resumed the clinical study they paused last week after one U.K. participant developed a “potentially unexplained illness,” while Pfizer and BioNTech have requested FDA approval to add 14,000 participants to their late-stage study.

Thermo Fisher Partners with AstraZeneca, UNMC on Clinical Biomarker Analysis Workflows

The new partnerships are intended to bolster Thermo Fisher's Precision Medicine Science Center's mission of creating standardized workflows with pharma and academic partners, with the goal of enhancing precision medicine by streamlining the transition from biomarker research to clinical implementation.

Researchers Map Immune Response of Children’s COVID-19-Associated Inflammatory Syndrome, MIS-C

Unlike children with Kawasaki disease and children with mild COVID-19, children who developed MIS-C were lacking IgG-antibodies to common cold coronaviruses. The researchers also found several autoantibodies that target the body’s own proteins and that may contribute to the pathogenesis of MIS-C.

IBD Inflammation Linked to Long-Lived Immune Cell

It has long been believed that immune system dysfunction, in concert with genetic susceptibility and changes in the gut microbiome, plays a significant role in IBD. However, the types of immune cells involved and their specific contributions to IBD have remained unclear.

Drugs that Block Cell Signaling Pathways Thwart SARS-CoV-2

By conducting a comprehensive survey of phosphate group changes that occur during a SARS-CoV-2 infection, researchers have ascertained which signaling pathways were relevant, allowing them to supply mechanistic rationales for how signal-adjusting SARS-CoV-2 drugs might work.
