New success in the fight against the coronavirus: Hungarian researchers discovered how the Delta variant infects
In a breakthrough in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic, researchers from Pharmacoidea Kft., Szeged have unravelled the secret of the increased infectivity of the dreaded Delta variant, which triggered a new wave of epidemics in 2021. In the project funded by a HUF 350 million grant from the “Investment in the Future” programme and implemented in university-research institute-enterprise cooperation, Dr Tamás Letoha and his research team have successfully elucidated the mechanism of infection. This allows the development of molecularly targeted yet simple strategies to reduce the spread of newer variants and effectively treat the diseases they cause.
