Effects of COVID-19 across organs and systems in healthy and immunocompromised individuals

Effects of COVID-19 across organs and systems in healthy and immunocompromised individuals

As vaccines are rolled out and new SARS-CoV-2 variants emerge, understanding the long-term effects of COVID-19, the impact on various organ systems, and the immune system’s response to the virus is vital. Read our latest blog to discover more about:

  • Recent research on the effects of COVID-19 on different organ systems and in different patient populations
  • Mapping the T-cell response to COVID-19 over time
  • How a whole-systems approach can help in the development of vaccines and therapies in the long term

T cells are Important: SARS-CoV-2 Variants & Vaccine Immune Response

To understand immune evasion of emerging variants and vaccine responses, researchers need to go beyond the antibody response and study the T-cell immune response to SARS-CoV-2. Read our latest blog to discover more about:

  • How T-cell responses play a critical role in clearing SARS-CoV-2 infection
  • SARS-CoV-2 variants of concern
  • Comparing T-cell responses to neutralizing antibody responses in SARS-CoV-2 variants

Understanding the effects of SARS-CoV-2 on the immune system and which immune response correlates are important for protection is critical in turning the tide of the pandemic. There are many ways to measure the immune response to infection or vaccination. In a previous article, we discussed why monitoring T cells, which are an important component…

Monitoring the immune response to SARS-CoV-2: The importance of T cells

T cells are essential to combat infection with any viral pathogen. Because T-cell responses have traditionally been more challenging to study than antibodies, they have been somewhat neglected compared with their humoral counterparts. The emphasis on antibody response in infection is highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic; media coverage is dominated by reports on antibody testing…
