Nanophotonic circuits could revolutionize data processing
A study conducted at RIDC CEPOF shows that light interacting with free electrons in a metal can traverse nanometric structures far smaller than its wavelength.
New studies enrich knowledge of genetic factors that naturally protect people against COVID-19
A team at HUG-CELL investigated over-90s who were resilient to SARS-CoV-2 and identical twins who had severe COVID-19 with different outcomes, including long COVID. Findings might contribute to the development of new vaccines and treatments.
COVID-19: drug shows potential to combat exaggerated inflammation in pre-clinical trials
Researchers at CRID tested the anthelmintic niclosamide on mice and human blood cells. Besides exhibiting antiviral action, the drug deactivated the mechanism underlying cytokine storm. A novel formulation is required for the active principle to reach the lungs.
