Association of postoperative #influenza vaccine on overall mortality in patients undergoing curative surgery for solid #tumors

Recent findings have found that the influenza vaccine induces changes in the immune system in favor of anti‐tumor cytotoxicity. The aim in this study was to investigate if an influenza vaccine given in the postoperative period decreased overall and cancer‐specific mortality in patients undergoing curative surgery for solid cancers. We conducted a registry‐based national observational study in Denmark in the period January 1, 2010 to … Continue reading Association of postoperative #influenza vaccine on overall mortality in patients undergoing curative surgery for solid #tumors

Orthogonal SARS-#CoV-2 Serological Assays Enable Surveillance of Low Prevalence Communities and Reveal Durable Humoral Immunity

We conducted a serological study to define correlates of immunity against SARS-CoV-2. Relative to mild COVID-19 cases, individuals with severe disease exhibited elevated virus-neutralizing titers and antibodies against nucleocapsid (N) and the receptor binding domain (RBD) of spike protein. Age and sex played lesser roles. All cases, including asymptomatic individuals, seroconverted by 2 weeks post-PCR confirmation. Spike RBD and S2 and neutralizing antibodies remained detectable … Continue reading Orthogonal SARS-#CoV-2 Serological Assays Enable Surveillance of Low Prevalence Communities and Reveal Durable Humoral Immunity
