T cells take the lead in controlling SARS-CoV-2 and reducing COVID-19 disease severity
Ever since SARS-CoV-2 first appeared, researchers have been trying to understand whether sometimes the immune system does more harm than good during the acute phase of COVID-19. The latest study by researchers at La Jolla Institute for Immunology clearly argues in favor of the immune system.

Study: New Form Of Coronavirus Spreads Faster, But Doesn ’ t Make People Sicker
(CNN) — A global study has found strong evidence that a new form of the coronavirus has spread from Europe to the US. The new mutation makes the virus more likely to infect people but does not seem to make them any sicker than earlier variations of the virus, an international team of researchers reported Thursday. “It is now the dominant form infecting people,” Erica Ollmann Saphire of the La Jolla Institute for Immunology and the Coronavirus Immunotherapy Consortium, who worked on the study, told CNN. “This is now the virus.” The study, published in the journal Cell, builds on some earlier wo...

How a mutation on the novel coronavirus has come to dominate the globe
(La Jolla Institute for Immunology) Two variants of the novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), called G614 and D614, were circulating in mid-March. A new study shows that the G version of the virus has come to dominate cases around the world. They report that this mutation does not make the virus more deadly, but it does help the virus copy itself, resulting in a higher viral load, or " titer, " in patients.

Cellular culprit suspected of pushing dengue fever from bad to worse is cleared by transcripts
(La Jolla Institute for Immunology) No one knows what makes a mild dengue viral infection morph into a severe and sometimes deadly dengue hemorrhagic fever/dengue shock syndrome. Experts previously believed the likely cause was ramped up activity of T cells, which can massively boost an immune response to a virus. Now, researchers at the La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI), have found definitive evidence that CD4 T cells, one of two main subtypes of T cells, are not to blame.

Why Pig Organs Could Be the Future of Transplants
Making human tissue in a lab has always been more sci-fi than sci-fact, but powerful genetic technologies may change that soon. For the most part, the only way to replace diseased or failing hearts, lungs, kidneys and livers is with donor organs. Even then, many people struggle to find a good biological match with a donor, and 8,000 die each year in the U.S. while waiting for an organ. In one promising solution to the shortage, researchers have been putting a new DNA editing tool called CRISPR through rigorous tests in organ regeneration. Last August, a group of scientists led by George Church, professor of genetics at Har...

The Best ex vivo Storage Option For Biopreservation Of Transplant Grafts
Storage of Hair Transplant Grafts outside of the body significantly impacts the quality of hair transplant procedures. There are almost as many opinions on the best ex vivo storage media for follicle grafts during a hair transplant procedure as there are hair transplant surgeons. Many surgeons have used the same protocol for years with great success, and there is always a tendency not to ‘rock the boat’ or mess with something that has worked in the past. But is your chosen hair graft storage solution as good as it could be? And how much impact does storage media have on the final quality of a transplant operation?

Can plucking hairs stimulate new hair growth?
Conclusion This study showed that hair regeneration in mice depends on the density at which hairs are removed. The researchers describe a sense and response mechanism working around a threshold. If hair removal, specifically plucking, was below this threshold, there was no biological response to repair and regrow the hair, and the mice remained bald. But once the plucking threshold was crossed, the plucked hair regrew – and often more hair regrew than was there originally. The main limitation with this research is it did not involve humans, so we don't know whether the same thing would happen in people. It might actua...
