Hints into long COVID
People with lower levels of an antiviral antibody as well as those with lung disease take longer to clear COVID-19 symptoms, say Stanford Medicine researchers.
Awards for COVID-19 project, media work
A COVID-19 remembrance project, two videos, an article about bad brain cells and Stanford Medicine magazine have been recognized by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education.
Gummy phlegm and COVID-19
Levels of a stringy, spongy substance soar in the sputum of COVID-19 patients requiring intubation, accounting for at least some of their breathing trouble. Development of an off-patent drug may prevent it.
COVID vaccine approved for young kids
Children as young as 6 months can now receive the Pfizer BioNTech and Moderna mRNA vaccines.
1,000+genes linked to severe COVID-19
Using machine learning, researchers from Stanford Medicine and their collaborators found specific genetic signals in people who develop severe coronavirus infection.
COVID-19 brain fog similar to chemo brain
Researchers found that damage to the brain’s white matter after COVID-19 resembles that seen after cancer chemotherapy, raising hope for treatments to help both conditions.
COVID RNA lingers in feces
People with mild to moderate COVID-19 can shed viral RNA in their feces months after initial infection, Stanford researchers find. Those who do often have nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
Students create low-tech antiviral method
Using household items, Stanford students have developed a way to make affordable nasal drops with the potential to slow the spread of viruses like COVID-19.
Vaccines bolster immunity from prior infection
Two-dose COVID-19 vaccines significantly increase protection against hospitalization and death in people who had the illness before they were immunized.
The pandemic turns 2
Stanford Medicine scientists explain what we know, and what we don’t know, about living with COVID-19 two years after the World Health Organization declared a pandemic.
Lab processes 1 millionth COVID-19 test
Stanford Medicine’s clinical virology laboratory has processed its 1 millionth COVID-19 test nearly two years after becoming one of the first academic center testing sites in the country.
