Indian Institute of Technology (IIT Madras Study) researchers have shown that spike protein vaccines may be effective against multiple variants of Coronavirus (SARS COV-2). The results of the IIT Madras study suggest that the attack by selected variants Delta plus, Gamma, Zeta, Mink and Omicron may be dealt with by vaccine-induced T-cell responses despite the compromised neutralising antibodies responses.

IIT Madras researchers are studying the high transmission rate and mortality of SARS-CoV-2, the scientific name for the coronavirus that causes Covid-19. Using computational tools, the team studied its two close variants — SARS-CoV and NL63. The team set out to understand how the spike proteins (which enables the coronavirus to penetrate human cells and […]
