Conclusion: The varied spectra of COVID-19 mostly affects young adult age group (third to fifth decades of life). Interestingly, early age group was also affected in significant proportion when compared with similar data from other countries. It was observed that male population seemed to be was more prone to getting infected. Majority of COVID-19 positive patients (nearly three-fourth) were asymptomatic (mostly in young age range) at the time of diagnosis, which poses a major challenge for health care workers. Fever, cough, sore throat and shortness of breath were major symptoms that could be detected in such COVID-19 pat...

Authors: Joshi SR, Tiwaskar MH, Shah SN Abstract Diabetes and Obesity are major risk factors which confer vulnerability to Covid 19 . Diabetes has immune defects which makes the individual susceptible to infections and covid 19 is no exception . Also covid 19 can cause pancreatic damage as well as stress hyperglycaemia in hospitals which may need Insulin . Among diabetes male gender,elderly,hypertension ,heart disease and chronic renal disease are more vulbwdvale to covid 19 and need strict supervision . Diabetes management in hospitalised situation merits early diabetes specific nutrition with Insulin. Adherence t...

The objective of this study was to estimate the prevalence of patients with comorbidities who died of COVID-19 in Brazil. Searches of data were carried out on the official pages of the 26 State health departments and the federal district. The random-effect method was used to calculate the prevalence of patients with comorbidities who died. From the beginning of the pandemic in Brazil until May 20, 2020, 276,703 cases of COVID-19 were notified in Brazil, 6.4% died, 58.6% of whom were male. The prevalence of comorbidities among deaths was 83% (95% CI: 79 - 87), with heart disease and diabetes being the most prevalent. To our...

Abstract We investigated the relationship between urinary Alzheimer-associated neuronal thread protein (AD7c-NTP) levels and apolipoprotein epsilon 4 (ApoE ɛ4) alleles, as well as other factors that cause cognitive decline, in the cognitively normal population. We recruited 329 cognitively normal right-handed Han Chinese subjects who completed ApoE gene testing and urinary AD7c-NTP testing. There was no significant difference in urinary AD7c-NTP levels between the normal control and subjective cognitive decline groups. Urinary AD7c-NTP levels were significantly higher in subjects with ApoE ɛ3/4 and 4/4 [0.6074 (...

CONCLUSION: The present study reported for the first time that the increase in the number of mast cells, observed as hypertension-induced myocardial changes progress, is statistically significant and confirmed that this process takes place in both ventricles. This increase is accompanied by a higher expression of fibroblast growth factor-2 and is more strongly correlated with the more pronounced interstitial fibrosis in older animals, further supporting the role of mast cells in the structural changes taking place in the myocardium in response to systemic hypertension.
