Anatomical barriers shield the brain from SARS-CoV-2 invasion at vulnerable interfaces
Absence of evidence for neurotropism and neuroinvasion of several SARS-CoV-2 variants including Omicron
21-Dec-2022 - A common symptom of COVID-19 is a partial or complete loss of smell. The virus infects sustentacular cells in the olfactory epithelium and is thought to impair thereby the activity of the sensory neurons in this epithelium. Scientists at the Max Planck Research Unit for Neurogenetics in Frankfurt ...
SARS-CoV-2 infects sustentacular cells in the olfactory epithelium of COVID-19 patients
The coronavirus does not appear to infect nerve cells in the olfactory epithelium and in the olfactory bulb
29-Nov-2021 - It is now widely known that COVID-19 is associated with the transient or long-term loss of olfaction (the sense of smell) but the mechanisms remain obscure. An unresolved question is whether the olfactory nerve can provide SARS-CoV-2 with a route of entry to the brain. Scientists at the Max ...
Parkinson's disease involves degeneration of the olfactory system
Scientists discover anatomical link for the loss of smell in Parkinson’s disease
02-Oct-2017 - The first symptom of Parkinson's disease is often an impaired sense of smell. This neurodegenerative disease primarily causes irreparable damage to nerve cells in a brain area involved in movement control. How it affects the olfactory system has been unclear. Researchers at the Max Planck ...
