Group publishes research on understanding the pathology of COVID-19

Boise State research technician Alexandra Oxford, associate professor of biology Brad Morrison, Fabio Halla and Evan Robertson co-authored the article “Endothelial Cell Contributions to COVID-19.”

From the abstract: “Recent reports suggest that SARS-CoV-2, unlike other related viruses, infects and replicates within endothelial cells, which may explain a significant portion of the observed clinical pathology. Likewise, mounting evidence associates vascular and endothelial cell dysfunction with increased mortality. This review focuses on understanding how endothelial cell pathology is caused by SARS-CoV-2 at the molecular and cellular levels and how these events relate to COVID-19.”
