Researchers at the University of Bonn, Germany, together with international colleagues, have found and further developed novel antibody fragments, so-called "nanobodies", against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
Scientists at the University of Seville may have found the reason why COVID-19 patients do not notice a life-threatening oxygen deficiency - or notice it much too late.
British researchers have identified in a study five genes associated with the most severe form of COVID-19.
A team of researchers from Munich University of Applied Sciences has examined to what extent transparent face shields are suitable for protection against infection with the coronavirus.
German and British scientists have discovered that the protease inhibitor aprotinin can prevent the SARS CoV-2 virus from entering host cells.
Austrian researchers have shown in a study that natural UV radiation in winter is too weak to destroy SARS-CoV-2 viruses in aerosols and on surfaces.
Researchers at the University of Augsburg in Germany are working on an app that can detect an infection with the SARS CoV-2 coronavirus via speech. The app currently has an accuracy rate of over 80%.
British researchers have observed robust T-cell responses to SARS CoV-2 virus peptides in the majority of adults even six months after an asymptomatic or mild COVID-19 infection.
A patient's voice can reveal whether they have the coronavirus. This is in principle an option as a trial in Italy has convincingly shown.
Scientists at Berlin's Charité university hospital and TU Berlin have developed a new method that can accurately measure the amount of aerosol transferred from person to person.
Jelmer Visser explains the spread of the corona pandemic in Europe for Innovation Origins. Today: Which line of defense prevents a total lockdown?
Scientists at the German University of Leipzig have developed a corona antibody test that should enable anyone to find out if they have already been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
A new study has shown that the body's very strong immune response to the SARS CoV-2 virus can cause a severe case of COVID-19.
Scientists at Jena University Hospital are also looking into whether those people who have not produced antibodies have built up any immunity.
The discovery by an international team of scientists can help in the development of new medicines and vaccines.
The German Paul Ehrlich Institute (PEI) is confident that a vaccine against the novel SARS CoV-2 coronavirus could be available by the end of 2020.
An international team of researchers was able to show that an endogenous protein can prevent the Sars-Cov-2 virus from fusing with the body's cells and infecting them.
The outbreak of COVID-19 among employees of a large German meat processor was not due to their cramped poor housing conditions, but due to the environmental conditions in the abattoir.
It turns out that people can suffer severe brain damage as a result of COVID-19. British doctors are now diagnosing a rare brain disorder much more frequently than before the pandemic.
Reserachers in Germany have compiled a new molecular library to help in the search for vaccines, not just against corona.
