Samenvatting

There is scientific evidence that immune responses can be modulated by nutritional interventions. In this program, we aim to investigate whether nutritional solutions could modulate immune responses against SARS-CoV-2 infection and improve SARS-CoV-2 vaccine responses in preclinical in-vivo and in-vitro models. In parallel we will translate obtained preclinical data to a human setting, by analyzing the effect of nutritional compounds on immune profiles of COVID-19 patients ex-vivo. It is the expectation that this program will provide new concepts and lead compounds for the prevention and/or management of COVID-19 disease.
