Possible discovery of mechanism behind mysterious COVID-19 symptoms

The immune system can affect the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein, leading to the production of a misfolded spike protein called amyloid. A new study points to a possible connection between harmful amyloid production and symptoms of COVID-19.

Two pieces of the Alzheimer’s puzzle

One is a protein chemist, the other a physician. Both conduct research into Alzheimer’s disease. Each benefits from the knowledge of the other, making progress more rapid. Their objective: to make a difference for those affected by disease.
