British Study Finds Babies Produce Strong Antibodies to SARS-CoV-2
Researchers from the University of Bristol found that infants mount a stronger immune response to COVID-19 than many adults. The results, published in Cell Reports Medicine, found that infants younger than 3 months of age generated high amounts of antibodies and immune cells particularly helpful in fighting off SARS-CoV-2 when they contracted COVID-19 illness. Infants and children, on the whole, experience less serious health effects from COVID-19 than their elders. Researchers hope to replicate these results in a larger study and use the data to improve the protective ability of vaccines. Click here to read more.
