Nathan Stirk/Getty Images The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the US mental-health crisis, with apps like Calm and Headspace booming as people try to cope. Now, a new cohort of apps are working to directly treat mental illness, rather than just help people get by. Three such companies told Business Insider their programs can drive similar results as medication, and said they believe in-pe...

We're likely to need coronavirus booster shots after the initial vaccine

A volunteer receives an experimental coronavirus shot from a medical worker at Baragwanath Hospital in Soweto, South Africa, June 24, 2020. REUTERS/Siphiwe Sibeko People may need to get booster shots after the initial coronavirus vaccine doses in order to stay protected, experts say. Other vaccines, like the tetanus shot, also require periodic boosters.  That adds further complication to the impending challenge of distributing coronavirus vaccines, which are likely to require two doses. Vi...

Aytac Unal/Anadolu Agency via Getty Images The coronavirus vaccine candidates from Pfizer and Moderna both prevented COVID-19 in clinical trials. Research suggests the coronavirus is genetically stable, which means it mutates very slowly. So the leading vaccines should work well long-term against all strains of the virus. By contrast, viruses like the flu accumulate geneti...

Moderna's coronavirus vaccine requires 2 shots given a month apart, which makes it tougher to get everyone fully inoculated

A nurse prepares a coronavirus vaccine developed by Moderna and the National Institutes of Health, July 2020. Hans Pennink/AP Moderna announced Monday that its coronavirus vaccine candidate was found to be 94.5% effective in preventing COVID-19 in clinical trials. The vaccine requires two shots administered four weeks apart, which could make distribution more complicated. People may need additional booster shots later, experts say.

Scientists say New York City likely had COVID-19 infections in February, weeks earlier than official data suggests

Frank Franklin II/Associated Press SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, may have been present in New York City in mid-February, according to a study published Tuesday in the Nature journal. The city's first case wasn't officially confirmed until March. Scientists at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital and Mount Sinai Health System found antibodies to the virus in blood plasma samples from mid-February. Around one in five New York City residents had been infected by...

Virus Hospitalizations Are Up in New York City. But This Time, It's Different.

NEW YORK -- At one New York City hospital, coronavirus patients began arriving a few weeks ago from Brooklyn neighborhoods and nearby suburbs that have seen a resurgence of the virus.But in contrast to March and April -- when so many seriously ill New Yorkers flooded into the hospital, Mount Sinai, that a field hospital was erected nearby in Central Park -- patients were showing up in smaller numbers and were often less sick. After treatment, they were going home."There is a much lower recent mo...

Scientists engineer new cancer immunotherapy to train immune system in cancer fight

A groundbreaking new type of cancer immunotherapy developed at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai trains the innate immune system to help it eliminate tumor cells through the use of nanobiologics, tiny materials bioengineered from natural molecules that are paired with a therapeutic component, according to a study published in Cell in October.

New theory sheds light on how the environment influences human health

Researchers at Mount Sinai have proposed a groundbreaking new way to study the interaction between complex biological systems in the body and the environment. Their theory suggests the existence of 'biodynamic interfaces,' an intermediate entity between the two realms, as opposed to conventional approaches that analyze individual aspects of the interaction between the environment and humans in isolation, according to a paper published in BioEssays in October.

Trump's doctor says the president already has antibodies. That might not mean he is cured with long-term immunity — it could just be his medication.

Dr. Sean Conley, physician to President Trump, at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin Trump's doctor announced that lab tests showed the president had "detectable levels" of coronavirus antibodies on Wednesday, less than a week after Trump's diagnosis. Your body creates antibodies to help fight off the coronavirus, but research shows these protective proteins take between one and three weeks to develop after you get infected. While ho...

The Democrats Are Flirting with the Destruction of the Judiciary

To this point, Joe Biden hasn’t offered any position on court packing, one of the gravest threats to the constitutional order in modern American history. Whether he is too scared of offending a significant faction of his party or he believes it’s an idea worth considering, his silence is a reflection of a dangerous shift on the left.Progressives, of course, have a point. If the Supreme Court adheres to even the most rudimentary constitutional limits on state power, rather than surrendering to th...

Social isolation is hard. New research identifies a potential intervention.

Researchers at Mt. Sinai discovered the neural mechanism behind social isolation. While the studies were conducted on mice, the team hopes this could lead to treatments in humans.This could shed light on social difficulties experienced by autistic and schizophrenic populations. Out of all the unforgettable lyrics by The Beatles, George Harrison's line, "Ah, look at all the lonely people," is one for the ages. How could you possibly live in a city surrounded by millions of people and be lonely?...
