Spain seeks paid volunteers to test its vaccines | Digital Trends Spanish

Two organizations related to the field of health in Spain are looking for volunteers to test the vaccines they develop for COVID-19. The Higher Center for Scientific Research (CSIC) is looking for people who want to be part of the trial of the CSIC-Biofabric vaccine, which has shown 100 percent efficacy in mice. For these tests, people between 18 and 39 years old who are not vaccinated and who have not been infected with coronavirus are needed. Meanwhile, the Girona Institute for Biomedical Research has published a statement calling on the public to test the Hipra vaccine, which plans to produce about 400 million doses of the drug Hipra SARS-CoV-2 during the next year. In this case, those who sign up as volunteers will receive remuneration for taking both doses. In addition, they will ...

Study Shows Advantages of Combining Pfizer and AstraZeneca | Digital Trends Spanish

A study carried out in South Korea showed that a mixed COVID-19 vaccination of AstraZeneca and then an injection of Pfizer increased the levels of neutralizing antibodies by six times, compared to two doses of AstraZeneca. About 500 medical workers participated in the research. Of these, 100 received mixed doses, 200 received two doses of the Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine, and the remainder received two AstraZeneca vaccines. According to a Reuters articleAll showed neutralizing antibodies, which prevent the virus from entering cells and replicating, and the result of the mixed vaccine plan showed similar amounts of neutralizing antibodies found in the group that received two injections from Pfizer. A neutralizing activity was also detected against the main variants of greatest interest, ac...

We already know why the delta variant is so contagious | Digital Trends Spanish

One of the big questions for science during 2021 is why the dreaded delta variant of COVID-19 is more contagious than the normal strain or other variants of concern. Therefore, a group of Chinese researchers from the local Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Guandong, set themselves the objective of knowing the spread and infection times of delta. The results that were published in the journal Virological, indicates that the incubation and subsequent positive patient indicator after the PCR sample is at least two days less than the original strain of SARS-CoV-2. Thus, the amount of time the virus needed to replicate at levels high enough to be detectable was 5.61 days for the parent virus and 3.71 days for the delta variant. John Connor, a researcher at the National Laboratori...

COVID-19: these are the countries with the best vaccination rate | Digital Trends Spanish

Health experts around the world have highlighted vaccines as the most effective way to slow the spread of the coronavirus. For this reason, efforts have been intensified so that the greatest number of countries vaccinate their inhabitants. The problem is that, at the moment, the global vaccination rate is barely 13.4 percent. As a way to encourage inoculation, Johns Hopkins University has published a list of countries that have the best vaccination rate. Of course, this classification is headed by countries with a smaller population, even so it serves to get an idea of ​​how the different vaccination processes have been carried out around the planet. The list also incorporates the percentage of the population that has been vaccinated in each nation, in addition to the total number of i...

Create the most complete map of human proteins using AI | Digital Trends Spanish

DeepMind, a research laboratory for Artificial Intelligence (AI), created the most comprehensive map of human proteins to date using AI. The firm is a subsidiary of Alphabet, Google's parent company, and some scientists already compare the potential impact of this work with the Human Genome Project. Importance Proteins are long, complex molecules that carry out various tasks in the body, from building tissues to fighting disease. According to the researchers, its purpose is dictated by its structure, which folds like origami into complex and irregular shapes. DeepMind.Understanding how it folds helps explain protein function, while helping scientists with various tasks, from fundamental research on how the body works to designing new drugs. Until now, determining the structure of a prot...

COVID-19: A treatment from a Japanese dish? | Digital Trends Spanish

Natto is a fermented soybean dish that is usually served for breakfast in Japan. It is one of the most traditional dishes of this nation and it has always been thought that it helps to have a longer life. Now, a group of researchers has discovered that the extract made from natto can inhibit the ability of the virus that causes COVID-19 to infect cells. "Traditionally, the Japanese have assumed that natto is beneficial to their health," says article author Tetsuya Mizutani, director of the Infectious Disease Prevention and Epidemiology Research Center at the Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology. “In recent years, research studies have revealed scientific evidence for this belief. In this study, we investigated the antiviral effects of natto on SARS-CoV-2, the virus that caus...

Trump fans sue FDA to stop vaccines | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of fanatical supporters of former President Donald Trump wants the vaccination process against COVID-19 in the United States to be stopped. To achieve this, the self-proclaimed group America's Frontline Doctors filed a motion against the Department of Health and Human Services, the parent agency of the FDA, to request a court order that stops all COVID-19 vaccinations in that country. According to the motion filed in the Northern District Court of Alabama, vaccines that have been cleared for emergency use by the FDA do not actually prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Of course, this statement is not correct. In addition, those responsible for America's Frontline Doctors assured that the authorization for emergency use should never have been granted since the coronavirus pand...

COVID-19: what can we expect from the British experiment | Digital Trends Spanish

July 19, 2021 will go down in history - for better or for worse - as the day that England launched an unprecedented measure since the emergence of COVID-19: the total end of all the restrictions that have been in force for more than one year globally. Already known as the "British Experiment" or "Freedom Day", this is what we can expect from one of the most radical bets of Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister. In early 2020, contrary to measures taken by other countries, Johnson refused to confine the population to prevent the spread of COVID-19. After the blow of reality caused by the millions of infections - including himself - and thousands of deaths, he ended up giving way. Almost 14 months later, Johnson himself pushed for the total end of the restrictions. Among other meas...
