Dogs can determine with great accuracy whether people are infected with corona from different body fluids.
Two sugar-binding proteins prevent SARS-CoV-2 variants from penetrating cells.
The mortality rate depends not only on infection rates or protective measures taken, but also on how well the healthcare system functions
Shielding those at highest risk from Covid-19 during the first wave of the pandemic may not have been as effective at protecting them from infection and death as hoped, according to a new study.
Out of fear of contamination, people prefer to use debit cards rather than pay with cash. That fear is not really founded, say Prof. Dr. Eike Steinmann and Dr. Daniel Todt.
Göttingen researchers have apparently found a way to switch off the coronavirus and its new variants using mini-antibodies, so-called nanobodies.
Listening to and making music can help you cope better emotionally with difficult times like the corona crisis, according to a new international study.
Researchers at TU Munich have developed a new strategy against viruses: Nano-capsules made of DNA material enclose viruses, rendering them harmless.
TWINCORE researchers give hope to people with autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or multiple sclerosis that they too will soon be able to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Doctors at the Tübingen University Hospital in Germany have developed a vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 specifically designed for patients with cancer or an immune deficiency
Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Ceramic Technologies and Systems IKTS in Germany have developed innovative "μPCR" lab modules to significantly speed up PCR lab tests
'Interleukin-33' can recognize viruses it has seen once before and signal the immune system to start producing antibodies.
DESY researchers have identified several candidate compounds against SARS-CoV-2 that bind to a key protein in the virus and could be the basis for a drug to combat Covid-19.
German scientists have isolated a molecule that binds to the spike protein of the virus in such a way that it could prevent the virus from entering a cell.
UV-C breaks down the DNA or RNA of microorganisms such as bacteria and viruses, thereby rendering them harmless.
A research team from Berlin's Charité University Hospital and MDC has shown how an antiviral messenger can favor the replication of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and allow the virus to spread.
Scientists at the University of Potsdam have developed new monoclonal antibodies to detect the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, which could now pave the way for further rapid tests.
An international research team from the Universities of Tübingen and Paraná has developed a new coronavirus antibody test that provides a reliable result in just twelve minutes.
