Controlled human infection models and SARS-CoV-2 vaccine development

Date: July 2, 2020 Source 1: Walter Reed Army Institute of Research Source 2: Summary: Infecting volunteers with COVID-19 may provide valuable insights for future rounds of vaccine testing, but would require very strict controls and is unlikely to advance the current slate of vaccines in advanced development, argues a group of infectious disease


Mutations in SARS-CoV-2 offer insights into virus evolution

Date: May 5, 2020 Source 1: University College London Source 2: Summary: By analyzing virus genomes from over 7,500 people infected with COVID-19, researchers have characterized patterns of diversity of SARS-CoV-2 virus genome, offering clues to direct drugs and vaccine targets. The study identified close to 200 recurrent genetic mutations in the virus, highlighting
