Study finds immune cells recognizing SARS-CoV-2 in tissue predating the pandemic

CITF-funded researchers Drs. Götz Ehrhardt and Mario Ostrowski from the University of Toronto set out to determine whether their pediatric tissue samples from 2015-16 contained signs of immunity to SARS-CoV-2. They discovered immune cells and antibodies in the tonsils that could specifically recognize the virus’ spike protein. The study provides some helpful insights as … Continue reading Study finds immune cells recognizing SARS-CoV-2 in tissue predating the pandemic
