Researchers from Skoltech had been a part of a analysis consortium learning a case of vertical COVID-19 transmission from mom to her unborn baby that resulted in main problems within the being pregnant, untimely beginning and dying of the kid. The consortium used a Skoltech-developed proteomics methodology to confirm the prognosis. The paper was printed within the journal Viruses.
The results of SARS-CoV-2, the novel coronavirus, on maternal and perinatal outcomes are poorly understood on account of restricted information and analysis in pregnant girls with COVID-19. There’s some proof suggesting vertical transmission from mom to fetus throughout being pregnant is feasible, as, as an illustration, in China, immunoglobulin M (IgM) antibodies had been present in infants born to moms with constructive SARS-CoV-2 exams.

Professor Evgeny Nikolaev, Dr. Alexey Kononikhin and Dr. Alexander Brzhozovskiy of Skoltech and their colleagues within the consortium report the case of a wholesome 27-year-old lady who obtained reasonably sick with COVID-19 throughout the
