Despite near hourly reporting on this crisis, there has been no regular, updated, or accurate reporting of hospitalizations for COVID-19. It is known that many test-positive individ...

Research into cancer, heart disease, HIV, MS, Alzheimer ’s, gene therapy, opioid addiction, epilepsy, blindness — all abruptly stopped in mid-March.
Conclusion: The COVID-19 pandemic has led to challenging decision-making about treatment of critically unwell patients. Low-dose prednisolone and tacrolimus may have beneficial impacts on COVID-19. The mycophenolate mofetil picture is less clear, with conflicting data from pre-clinical studies. There is no definitive evidence that specific cytotoxic drugs, low-dose methotrexate for auto-immune disease, NSAIDs, JAK kinase inhibitors or anti-TNFα agents are contraindicated. There is clear evidence that IL-6 peak levels are associated with severity of pulmonary complications. PMID: 32256705 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Solitary endobronchial papillomas are extremely rare, accounting for only 0.38% of all lung tumours and approximately 7% of all benign epithelial and mesenchymal lung tumours. Here, we present an unexpected case of mixed papilloma in the youngest known patient to date who suffered from chest pain and bloody sputum. A 17 ‐year‐old woman was referred to our hospital due to cough on exertion and right chest pain over the previous two months, together with bloody sputum over the previous week. Chest X‐ray demonstrated a nodule measuring 3 cm in diameter in the right middle lung field. On repeated bronchoscopy, th e tumou...
Conclusion: Cryotherapy using fiberoptic bronchoscopy is a safe with a high efficacy technique in treating endobronchial malignant obstructive lesions.
Conclusions: Primary sarcomas of the lung are rare and aggressive tumors.Complete surgical resection with free margins, and chemotherapy increase the survival.
