Johns Hopkins researchers warn of new infectious diseases and death due to global warmingSARS-CoV-2 Antibodies for Lateral Flow Assay

Lateral flow immunoassay (LFA) is an alternative platform that can be used to detect viral antigens in biological samples. Sino Biological has developed a panel of antibodies pairs against SARS-CoV-2 S&N protein and that identified as potential candidates for developing LFA (ChemRxiv 2020).

 'Silent' wave of neurological consequences may be on its way due to COVID-19
 
'Silent' wave of neurological consequences may be on its way due to COVID-19Is the world prepared a wave of neurological consequences that may be on its way as a result of COVID-19? This question is at the forefront of research underway at the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health.
 
 
 AI used to define the cytokine storm implicated in fatal COVID-19
 
AI used to define the cytokine storm implicated in fatal COVID-19A new study published on the preprint server bioRxiv* in September 2020 reports the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to identify an invariant or universal host immune response found in all viral pandemics so far. The association of this response with severe COVID-19 phenotypes indicates a new understanding of the human immune response in viral pandemics.
