As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
The rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic is an existential problem for many people in numerous countries, posing a significant threat in health, social, and economical terms. So far, there is no effective vaccine protection or proven therapy available against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
In this review, Fischer and colleagues describe the role of passive immunization in times of the coronavirus. Passive immunization could be a bridging technology to improve the immune defense of critically ill patients until better approaches with effective medications are available
