Sapient Featured as Collaborator in Cedars-Sinai Study on Immune Responses and COVID-19
Study infrastructure and biospecimen processing support is being provided by Sapient for the study, which is focused on advancing vital immune response research for COVID-19 and other autoimmune and inflammation-associated diseases.
Cedars-Sinai’s press release highlights key study findings now published in JAMA Network Open on COVID-19 infection awareness rates, indicating that 56% of adults in the study who had newly positive levels of antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in their blood during the Omicron surge were unaware of any recent COVID-19 infection. The findings suggest that low rates of Omicron variant infection awareness may be a key contributor to rapid transmission of the virus within communities.
