Authors: Lackland DT, Sims-Robinson C, Jones Buie JN, Voeks JH Abstract The randomized clinical trial (RCT) has long been recognized as the 'gold standard' for developing evidence for clinical treatments and vaccines; however, the successful implementation and translation of these findings is predicated upon external validity. The generalization of RCT findings are jeopardized by the lack of participation of at-risk groups such as African Americans, with long-recognized disproportional representation. Distinct factors that deter participation in RCTs include distrust, access, recruitment strategies, perceptions of ...

With prospects of a Covid-19 vaccine looking up, attention is turning to the problem of anti-vax ideas. The number of conspiracy theories circulating about coronavirus don't help. Here are six rules an expert uses for talking to conspiracy theorists in an effort to change their mind.

Local Covid-19 drugmaker CureVac has firmed up its executive team in advance of its much-anticipated IPO.   CureVac, which is based in Germany with U.S. headquarters in Boston, announced Tuesday that Dr. Franz-Werner Haas will become its permanent CEO. He stepped into the role on a temporary basis in March after a week in which CureVac went through two chief executives.  The company has also lured I gor Splawski over from the Novartis Institutes for Biomedical Research in Cambridge to serve as…

As some youth sports teams get started again, some summer camps and daycares are opening up, and we begin to think about school (or some form of it) in the fall, many parents are wondering: what do I do about getting that physical form I need for my child? Understandably, many families do not want to go to the doctor right now. They are worried about going anywhere, and especially worried about going to a medical office, where they are concerned they may end up around sick people. I want to say up front that most medical facilities are very aware of the risk, and take measures to make sure that patients can safely get the ...

Abstract Heroin overdose and addiction remain significant health and economic burdens in the world today costing billions of dollars annually. Moreover, only limited pharmacotherapeutic options are available for treatment of heroin addiction. In our efforts to combat the public health threat posed by heroin addiction, we have developed vaccines against heroin. To expand upon our existing heroin-vaccine arsenal, we synthesized new aryl and alkyl sulfonate ester haptens; namely aryl-mono-sulfonate (HMsAc) and Aryl/alkyl-di-sulfonate (H(Ds)2) as carboxyl-isosteres of heroin then compared them to our model heroin-hapt...

Abstract The unprecedented pandemic of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) is threatening global health. The virus emerged in late 2019 and can cause a severe disease associated with significant mortality. Several vaccine development and drug discovery campaigns are underway. The SARS-CoV-2 main protease is considered a promising drug target, as it is dissimilar to human proteases. Sequence and structure of the main protease are closely related to those from other betacoronaviruses, facilitating drug discovery attempts based on previous lead compounds. Covalently binding peptidomimetic...

This study was conducted to investigate the effect of chemical components as supplements using the experimental design method, which aimed at reducing the number of experiments. For this purpose, supplements including chemical components using four levels, with three replications in suspension and batch culture conditions, were examined for 72 hours using the Taguchi experimental design method. From the experiments, it was concluded that the culture media composition had a significant impact on final cell count and pH. High concentrations of different media composition alone were insufficient to ensure higher cell count. A...
