This show is really ‘Sick.’ If you’re concerned about your health, that’s why you should watch it.

The online series takes brief-but-deep dives into what diseases — such as malaria, measles and lupus — do to our bodies.

[The Conversation Africa] Health crises are not new in Africa. The continent has grappled with infectious diseases on all levels, from local (such as malaria) to regional (Ebola) to global (COVID-19). The region has often carried a disproportionately high burden of global infectious outbreaks.

CONCLUSIONS: This study suggests that peripheral blood hsa_circ_0082688-hsa_circ_0008675 level in SLE+RI patients is upregulated and may also serve as a potential biomarker for SLE+RI patient diagnosis and treatment. PMID: 32940208 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: The EULAR/ACR 2019 criteria are characterised by higher specificity for SLE diagnosis when compared to previously introduced criteria sets. We conclude that patients with CLE, even those meeting the criteria for SLE, have low risk of serious complications of SLE. PMID: 32940207 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: MMF precedes CYC in improving serum complement C3 and complete remission regardless of race, as well as shows fewer adverse drug reactions in the induction treatment of LN belonging to type III–V. But for Asian patients or those initial UPRO levels are less than 4 g/day, CYC may be superior to MMF.

In early April, about four months after a new, highly infectious coronavirus was first identified in China, an international group of scientists reported encouraging results from a study of an experimental drug for treating the viral disease known as COVID-19. It was a small study, reported in the New England Journal of Medicine, but showed that remdesivir, an unapproved drug that was originally developed to fight Ebola, helped 68% of patients with severe breathing problems due to COVID-19 to improve; 60% of those who relied on a ventilator to breathe and took the drug were able to wean themselves off the machines after 18...
