Understanding antibody responses will be key to offset coronavirus variants' evasion of earlier immunity.
A distinct immune response is observed in people who had COVID-19 and then got vaccinated.
Cryoelectron microscopy studies of Nipah and Hendra viruses may lead to ideas for vaccine design and antibody treatments.
People vaccinated three times or vaccinated after an earlier COVID-19 infection had comparable neutralizing antibody activity to those with a breakthrough case.
COVID-19 variants are finding methods to elude antibody protection, but the scientists with UW Medicine who made that discovery say vaccines are holding strong against the mutations.
People who are "fully vaccinated" – meaning two weeks have elapsed since the final dose of the final vaccine series – can gather with others and share a meal, unmasked, indoors with another vaccinated household, says Dr. Seth Cohen.
Today is winter solstice, the day of the year with the least daylight, and perhaps a fitting day to reflect on sleep.
Tailored vaccines developed at UW Medicine enable a more targeted immune response against viruses.
Large, mobile gene clusters protect against a type of toxic attack by rival bacteria.
Dr. Seymour Klebanoff, 89, a world leader in the study of how white blood cells kill bacteria, died in his sleep Aug. 31 at his Seattle home.
