New Mouse Model Provides Unprecedented Look at Human Immune System
Despite the critical role of neutrophils in the human immune system, no one has been able to study them in a living context, limiting investigations of their properties. But now, a team of Yale researchers has developed the first humanized mouse model that will permit research on neutrophils in vivo.
How Gut Microbes Can Evolve and Become Dangerous
Gut bacteria can evolve over time within the host, becoming more pathogenic by gaining the ability to migrate across the gut barrier and persist in organs outside of the intestine, thereby driving chronic inflammation and associated pathologies.Source: YaleNews
Elevated Biomarkers Offer Early Indicator of Severe COVID-19, Study Says
When patients with COVID-19 arrive in emergency rooms, there are relatively few ways for doctors to predict which ones are more likely to become critically ill and require intensive care and which ones are more likely to enjoy a quick recovery. Recent Yale research could help them identify important early clues that foretell severe cases of COVID-19.
