RECOVERY trial Regeneron’s monoclonal antibody combination reduces deaths for hospitalised COVID-19 patients
The Randomised Evaluation of COVID-19 Therapy (RECOVERY) trial has demonstrated that the investigational antibody combination developed by Regeneron reduces the risk of death when given to patients hospitalised with severe COVID-19 who have not mounted a natural antibody response of their own. The treatment uses a combination of two monoclonal antibodies (casirivimab and imdevimab, known as REGEN-COV in the US) that bind specifically to two different sites on the coronavirus spike protein, neutralising the ability of the virus to infect cells.

AI Predicts How Patients with Viral Infections, Including COVID-19, Will Fare
Gene expression patterns associated with pandemic viral infections provide a map to help define patients' immune responses, measure disease severity, predict outcomes and test therapies - for current and future pandemics Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine used an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm to sift through terabytes of gene expression data — which genes are "on" or "off" during infection — to look for shared patterns in patients with past pandemic viral infections, including SARS, MERS and swine flu.

Why heart patients should avoid cream cake
Study examines the influence of rumensic acid on heart muscle fibers Cardiovascular diseases are the most common cause of death in Germany. Important triggers for this are stress, lack of exercise and an unhealthy diet. Now a research team led by Dietmar Manstein, Director of the Institute of Biophysical Chemistry at Hannover Medical School (MHH), has discovered another reason why people with heart problems should avoid butter, cream cake or roast lamb: They contain rumensic acid, a trans fatty acid found in cow's milk products and the meat of ruminants.
