At many places in the Technical University of Munich (TUM) research is being carried out on how to counteract the dangers posed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. SAT.1 Bayern reported on December 27th and 28th in a two-part documentary about selected research projects.
Artificially produced antibodies can help patients who are already seriously ill. These are already being used in the Klinikum rechts der Isar. A drug that is currently being developed as part of an interdisciplinary cooperation is intended to prevent the virus from multiplying. Another research project focuses on the response of the lung tissue to the infection. And with the dark field x-ray, a new method is available that can make the damage to the lung tissue visible.
The two documentaries (in German) are now available in the SAT.1 Bayern media library:
Medikament gegen Long Covid: Wie weit ist die Forschung? - Long Covid drug: how far is the research? - Part 1 of the documentation in the media library of Sat.1 Bayern (duration approx. 25 min)
Kampf gegen Corona: Wie können Röntgenstrahlen helfen? - Fight against corona: how can x-rays help? - Part 2 of the documentation in the media library of Sat.1 Bayern (duration approx. 25 min)
The availability of content in media libraries may be limited.
