COVID-19 Researchers Develop Tech for Mopping Up Cytokines, and Consider Gathering in the NETs

Posted by in category: biotech/medical

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers have developed a series of soluble, stabilized cytokine receptors that could feasibly be injected into COVID-19 patients to help reduce the effects of cytokine storm by binding to excess cytokines.

Independent research teams describe soluble cytokine receptors that might tackle cytokine storm, and suggest that a little known function of neutrophils may be involved in severe COVID-19 disease.
