It’s been enough for a bit, isn’t it? For three months now, there has been little space in the world for any other kind of news. That is, news without the word ‘coronavirus’. But there was innovation, there is excitement and, well, even some weird (although useful!) inventions that appeared while the world has been in lockdown. So here’s an outlook on such news, all, promise, without that particular C-word. Hospitals have been facing great challenges recently. But they are on the verge of a new era that brings better care and more focus on the patient. This is a trend we have been talking a...

We set out to investigate the interference factors that led to false-positive novel severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) IgM detection results using gold immunochromatography assay (GICA) and enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) and the corresponding solutions. GICA and ELISA were used to detect SARS-CoV-2 IgM in 86 serum samples, including 5 influenza A virus (Flu A) IgM-positive sera, 5 influenza B virus (Flu B) IgM-positive sera, 5 Mycoplasma pneumoniae IgM-positive sera, 5 Legionella pneumophila IgM-positive sera, 6 sera of HIV infection patients, 36 rheumatoid factor IgM (RF-IgM)-positive ...

During these unprecedented times with the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that some populations are at increased risk of severe illness, complications, and death once contracting the novel coronavirus. This is particularly the case for patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes.1-5 Treatment of people with the disease of obesity and related disease is critical in the strategy to decrease risk of poor outcomes and death following COVID-19.

Derek Lowe in his Science Magazine blog asks the obvious question. Why the hell are we still conducting trials of hydroxychloroquine for Covid-19 and why are doctors giving it to people. The verdict is in. It doesn't work. On the contrary, it kills people. He discusses this paper inThe Lancet which is a retrospective observational study -- yes, yes, not a randomized controlled trial but quite compelling:[W]hen compared with mortality in the control group [i.e., people hospitalized with Covid-19 who did not receive HCQ] (9 ·3%), hydroxychloroquine (18·0%; hazard ratio 1·335, 95% CI 1·223–1&...

In conclusion, our results suggest a previously unknown mechanism whereby the canonical NF-κB cascade and a mitochondrial fission pathway interdependently regulate endothelial inflammation. Lin28 as a Target for Nerve Regeneration https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2020/05/lin28-as-a-target-for-nerve-regeneration/ Researchers here show that the gene Lin28 regulates axon regrowth. In mice, raised levels of Lin28 produce greater regeneration of nerve injuries. Past research has investigated Lin28 from the standpoint of producing a more general improvement in regenerative capacity. It improves mitoch...
