Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine and the University of Pittsburgh have discovered how Rift Valley fever virus enters cells, pointing the way to new therapies to treat the deadly disease.
A study by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine and the Veterans Affairs St. Louis Health Care System shows that people who have had COVID-19, including those with mild cases, are at an increased risk of developing kidney damage as well as chronic and end-stage kidney diseases.
A study led by Washington University School of Medicine, in collaboration with the Special School District of St. Louis County, found that rapid saliva test screenings contributed to exceedingly low transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 among students, teachers and staff in those schools.
A new analysis from Washington University School of Medicine suggests that the St. Louis region avoided thousands of hospitalizations and deaths with early and coordinated public health measures as the COVID-19 pandemic was first taking hold.

School of Medicine scientists have identified an antibody that is highly protective against a broad range of COVID-19 viral variants.
Researchers at Washington University School of Medicine have found antibodies that protect against specific mosquito-borne viruses that cause arthritis and brain infections. The findings could lead to a universal therapy or vaccine for the viruses.
There is a strong association between high levels of physical activity and the ability to maintain cognitive function among breast cancer patients treated with chemotherapy, according to new research from Washington University School of Medicine.
School of Medicine researchers have found that the delta variant of the virus that causes COVID-19 is largely unable to evade antibodies elicited by vaccination. The findings help explain why vaccinated people have been at low risk of getting seriously ill with COVID-19.
