Migratory pattern of the coronavirus disease 2019 and high fatality rates among kidney transplant recipients: report from the Brazilian Multicenter Cohort Study

CONCLUSION: The migratory pattern of the pandemic among KT recipients followed that of the general population and the outcomes were influenced by regional features. COVID-19 in KT recipients was associated with high utilization of health-care resources and higher fatality rates than those reported in the general population.PMID:34328168 | DOI:10.1590/2175-8239-JBN-2021-0063

In conclusion, PLG attenuates high calcium/phosphate-induced vascular calcification by upregulating P53/PTEN signaling in VSMCs. Tsimane and Moseten Hunter-Gatherers Exhibit Minimal Levels of Atrial Fibrillation https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2021/03/tsimane-and-moseten-hunter-gatherers-exhibit-minimal-levels-of-atrial-fibrillation/ Epidemiological data for the Tsimane and Moseten populations in Bolivia shows that they suffer very little cardiovascular disease in later life, despite a presumably greater lifetime burden of infectious disease (and consequent inflammation) than is the case for people i...

Soon after the coronavirus pandemic began, we learned that older adults and people with certain chronic conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes, are at increased risk for severe COVID-19. One condition on that list is an immunocompromised state (a weakened immune system). This can be due to a number of conditions, including having had an organ transplant, having HIV, or taking medications that suppress the immune system. If you have an autoimmune condition such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus (also called systemic lupus erythematosus), you may wonder how this affects your risk. It’s thought that these co...
