The search for a coronavirus vaccine and the challenges we're facing

Coronacast 15 de abril de 2020 17

Scientists are desperately searching for a coronavirus vaccine, but before that can happen there’s a whole bunch of stuff they need to discover.

One of those things is working out how the body’s immune system responds to the virus that causes COVID-19.

It has implications not only for vaccine discovery, but also how long people may stay immune after recovering.

On today’s show:

* Anti-bodies. What are they and how do they work?

* Is there a test that can detect them?

* How long might you stay immune after a vaccine or infection?

And we’re also joined by Professor Declan Murphy from Melbourne’s Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre to discuss the worrying phenomenon of cancer patients who may be frightened to continue their care because they’re worried about picking up the virus while visiting the doctor.
