Science|Business organised a roundtable discussion with international experts -representing industry, academia, public health bodies, think tanks, government officials and research organisations- to discuss how to prepare for future pandemics.
Development of a Definition of Postacute Sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 Infection
What symptoms are differentially present in SARS-CoV-2–infected individuals 6 months or more after infection compared with uninfected individuals? What symptom-based criteria can be used to identify postacute sequelae of SARS-CoV-2 infection cases?
Diagnosis of type 1 diabetes after SARS-CoV-2 infection: Researchers find possible correlation
Researchers at Helmholtz Munich and TU Dresden, in cooperation with the Kassenärztliche Vereinigung Bayern, have now investigated whether there is a temporal association between infection with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the development of type 1 diabetes.
Second monovalent SARS-CoV-2 mRNA booster restores Omicron-specific neutralizing activity in both nursing home residents and health care workers
Antibody levels and neutralizing activity progressively increased with each booster but subsequently waned over 3-6 months.
The impact of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic on global influenza surveillance: Insights from 18 National Influenza Centers based on a survey conducted between November 2021 and March 2022
