Aerosol microdroplets inefficient carriers of COVID-19 virus

Modeling shows SARS-CoV2 isn't spread very well by the small droplets that linger longest

30-Oct-2020

Aerosol microdroplets, the tiny particles that linger in the air longest after we talk, cough, or sneeze, do not appear to be extremely efficient at spreading the virus that leads to COVID-19. Modeling of SARS-CoV-2 transmission in confined spaces suggests aerosol transmission is not a very ...

New mechanism that leads to inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis discovered

03-Mar-2017

New research findings suggest that synovial CD4+ T cells that produce IL-21 contribute to joint inflammation by activating synovial fibroblasts in rheumatoid arthritis patients. Understanding the mechanisms of inflammation in rheumatoid arthritis is important for the design of new therapies for ...

New insights that link Fragile X Syndrome (FXS) and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)

Crucial role for FMRP (Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein) in embryonic development of the brain cortex

19-Nov-2014

Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the most common cause of inherited intellectual disability (ID), as well as the most frequent monogenic cause of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). FXS is caused by the absence or incorrect production of the protein FMRP (Fragile X Mental Retardation Protein). Scientists ...
