Coronavirus: while we keep social distance, we fight back with knowledge sharing
OniX is sharing information daily about the coronavirus to keep the public and researchers up-to-date. We are also reaching out to potential sponsors to provide OniX available free for all researchers - we'll let you know when we will be able to do that. We will provide e-alerts and access to the OniX portal with funded grants, startups, biotech companies, clinical trials, and news about COVID-19.
In the meantime, here are some of the latest research and news that we have been posting online:
Tracking the Coronavirus: How Crowded Asian Cities Tackled an Epidemic: Singapore, Taiwan and Hong Kong offer successful strategies, at least so far, in battling a pandemic. But they use tactics that the U.S. and Europe may not be able to replicate.
Substantial undocumented infection facilitates the rapid dissemination of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV2): high proportion of undocumented infections, many of whom were likely not severely symptomatic, appears to have facilitated the rapid spread of the virus throughout China https://lnkd.in/euq3rR7
Covid-19 Patient Helps Scientists Map Virus Immune Response: study provides novel contributions to the understanding of the breadth and kinetics of immune responses during a non-severe case of COVID-19. Furthermore, study indicates that robust multi-factorial immune responses can be elicited to the newly emerged virus SARS-CoV-2 and, similar to the avian H7N9 disease8, early adaptive immune responses might correlate with better clinical outcomes.
Gasdermin E: A new approach to cancer immunotherapy that could have broad reach: tumour GSDME ( also known as DFNA5) acts as a tumour suppressor by activating pyroptosis, enhancing anti-tumour immunity. https://lnkd.in/diczau3
Investigators Identify 2 Circulating SARS-CoV-2 Strains: urgent need for further immediate, comprehensive studies that combine genomic data, epidemiological data, and chart records of the clinical symptoms of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) https://lnkd.in/dUTAzjy

How Coronavirus Hijacks Your Cells: The virus that causes Covid-19 is currently spreading around the world. At least six other types of coronavirus are known to infect humans, with some causing the common cold and two causing epidemics: SARS in 2002 and MERS in 2012
Israeli scientists: 'In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine':Once the vaccine is developed, it will take at least 90 days to complete the regulatory process and potentially more to enter the marketplace. Israeli scientists: 'In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine' jpost.com
