I’ve talked to a few friends who recovered from COVID and say they have fatigue, difficulty breathing or “brain fog” and even […]
Real-Time Prediction of COVID Vaccines
The first real-time prediction of COVID Vaccines has been created by a team of researchers in Hong Kong. I was lucky to talk to one of the lead researchers, Professor Maggie Wang, on my Causes or Cures Podcast. Obviously, durability of COVID vaccines and how well they work against, what seems like, an endless army […]
A Model for COVID Vaccines- What did it Show?
Another model for COVID vaccines- what did this one show? A recent study published in JAMA assessed how effective the COVID-19 vaccines were in the US during the vaccine rollout across a portion of the pandemic (October1’2020- June 30’2021) Researchers at Yale University’s Center for Infectious Disease Modeling built a predictive model that included transmission […]
Prenatal Exposure to COVID and Neurodevelopment Issues
By: Eeks Prental exposure to COVID and Neurodevelopment Issues: A preprint study (not yet peer-reviewed) shows that prenatal exposure to COVID-19 may lead to neurodevelopment issues in the baby. Obviously wait till this is peer-reviewed before you run with it, but it’s still interesting research to consider. What happens when there is prenatal exposure to […]
Dr. Nikolai Petrovsky & His New COVID Vaccine
On Episode 77 of my Causes or Cures podcast, Dr. Nikolai Petrovsky joined me to discuss his new vaccine for COVID-19. Most people are focused on the mRNA vaccines ( Pfizer-BioNTech & Moderna) or the viral-vector vaccines, like J&J, but many researchers and companies are working on protein subunit vaccines for COVID-19. Unlike the […]
COVID Vaccines and Consistent Data Points
COVID Vaccines and Consistent Data Points: COVID-19 is one heck of a virus. I thought we’d be out of it by now, but nope. Despite rolling out vaccines across the globe ( at least in rich countries), cases are still surging. Why are cases surging? Take your pick, but my feeling is that it’s one, […]
Immunity from One Dose of COVID vaccines ?
A question I hear a lot: How much immunity from one dose of COVID vaccines (Pfizer & Moderna) are you getting? (Keep in mind the date I am writing this post, as this information may change wtih time.) In other words, how effective are the 2-dose mRNA shots (Pfizer and Moderna) after just 1 dose […]
The COVID vaccines
What’s the scoop on the new COVID vaccines? Dr. Andrew Fleming, an infectious disease doctor here in NYC, recently came on my Causes or Cures podcast to discuss the new vaccines. He has done research on antibody responses to COVID-19 and knows the specifics of the vaccine trials. Listen, I get people being anxious […]
