New TGen research finds link in severity for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is both increasingly common and potentially deadly; yet its causes remain poorly understood. Now, a collaborative team of researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), part of City of Hope, and Temple University has uncovered a link between decreases in an enzyme that makes choline in the liver —an essential nutrient for humans— and severity of NAFLD.

TGen, NAU study examines body’s antibody response to COVID-19 vaccine

Could the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine reawaken previous antibody responses and point the way to a universal coronavirus vaccine? A new analysis of the antibody response to a COVID-19 vaccine suggests the immune system’s past history with other coronaviruses, including those behind the common cold, shapes the patients response, according to a study published today in Cell Reports.
