A recent pandemic caused by a single-stranded RNA virus, COVID-19, initially discovered in China, is now spreading globally. This poses a serious threat that needs to be addressed immediately. Genome analysis of SARS-CoV-2 has revealed its close relation to SARS-coronavirus along with few changes in its spike protein. The spike protein aids in receptor binding and viral entry within the host and therefore represents a potential target for vaccine and therapeutic development. In the current study, the spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 was explored for potential immunogenic epitopes to design multi-epitope vaccine constructs. The ...

Coronavirus has an unpredictable future. We do not know whether efforts to suppress transmission will survive the easing of lockdown restrictions, if and when a vaccine will be produced, or even whether we – as a population – can develop long term resistance to it. The trajectory of the nation's mental health is different. It is influenced not only by the course of the virus but by decisions and interventions made directly by our government. Last week, the Prime Minister made a speech addressing the UK's post-Coronavirus economic future. Our sense of what may change is growing.

(The Francis Crick Institute) Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have characterised the structure of the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein as well as its most similar relative in a bat coronavirus. The structures provide clues about how the spike evolved and could help inform vaccine design.

Authors: Konturek PC, Harsch IA, Neurath MF, Zopf Y Abstract Severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV2) outbreak is the most dramatic event since World War II. Originating as a cluster of unexplained cases of pneumonia, it turned out that this viral disease termed COVID-19 is not only a respiratory infection, but a systemic disease associated with a number of extrapulmonary complications. One of the medical disciplines that is strongly affected by this viral infection is gastroenterology. COVID-19 causes in some patients typical symptoms of enteritis such as diarrhea or abdominal pain. There is als...
