Toxin-like Peptides in Plasma, Urine and Faecal Samples from COVID-19 Patients

Carlo Brogna et al. The presence of toxin-like peptides could potentially be connected to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Their presence suggests a possible association between COVID-19 disease and the release in the body of (oligo-)peptides almost identical to toxic components of venoms from animals. Their involvement in a large set of heterogeneous extra-pulmonary COVID-19 clinical manifestations, like […]

An Incredible Paper Was Just Published: It’s Incredible in Terrifying ways

Jessica Rose The bottom line of this incredible work is that there are two amyloidogenic proteins in the Open Reading Frames (ORF) 6 and 10 from SARS-nCoV-2 (the ORF-10 one does not have a homologue in SARS-nCoV – that means it’s unique to SARS-nCoV-2), that form crystalline amyloid structures independently, and together, at room temperature!, […]
