Protocol Preview: a Ferret Model of Respiratory Inflammation
While rodents have long been used to model many human diseases, their anatomical, physiological, and immunological differences from humans cannot be ignored when modeling respiratory inflammation. Recently, Khoury et al. demonstrated how ferrets can be used to model inflammatory respiratory disease and injury, which we review in this blog post.
Inhalable COVID-19 Vaccines: Recent Findings and Breakthroughs
Given that SARS-CoV-2 is primarily transmitted through respiratory droplets, with respiratory mucosa being the main viral entry route, is intramuscular administration the most effective vaccine delivery method to fight COVID-19? In this blog post, we have reviewed one recent study that reported the design and preclinical testing of an inhalable, exosome-based COVID-19 vaccine.
