This compilation first describes several methods for glycoengineering the COVID-19 virus to present multiple a-gal epitopes for the amplification of a-gal vaccine efficacy against SARS-CoV-2 infections.
Following this, the authors discuss myopia, the most common ocular disorder worldwide. It is the leading cause of visual impairment in children, and its prevalence is increasing rapidly.
In closing, the authors analyze the importance of the detection and prevention of wheat stripe rust epidemics in Argentina within the context of an integrated management of the disease.
