At the very start of the pandemic last year, I met with a couple of patients in the office while we wore masks.   Based on that limited experience, I quickly concluded that seeing each other’s faces was of paramount importance, even if over video.  That, plus the infection risk, led me to close my officeRead more …Which is better: Psychotherapy using video or in-person while wearing masks? originally appeared inKevinMD.com.

The law says employers must make sure there's an adequate supply of fresh air (ventilation) in enclosed areas of the workplace. This has not changed during the pandemic. Adequate ventilation reduces how much virus is in the air. It helps reduce the risk from aerosol transmission. Aerosol transmission can happen when someone breathes in small particles in the air (aerosols) after a person with the virus has been in the same enclosed area.

AIDS Res Hum Retroviruses. 2021 Oct 23. doi: 10.1089/AID.2021.0109. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTWe explored experiences with telemedicine among persons with HIV (PWH) during the first wave of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. A convenience sample of adults (>18 years) receiving care in an urban clinic in Atlanta were invited to participate. Patients completed a structured survey that assessed the usefulness, quality, satisfaction, and concerns with telemedicine services (telephone calls) received during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic (March-May 2020). Demographic, plasma HIV-1 RNA and CD4+ T-c...

Given the urgent need for coronavirus disease 2019 therapeutics, early in the pandemic the Accelerating Coronavirus Disease 2019 Therapeutic Interventions and Vaccines (ACTIV) public-private partnership rapidly designed a unique therapeutic agent intake and assessment process for candidate treatments of coronavirus disease 2019. These treatments included antivirals, immune modulators, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 neutralizing antibodies, and organ-supportive treatments at both the preclinical and clinical stages of development. The ACTIV Therapeutics-Clinical Working Group Agent Prioritization subgroup e...

ConclusionsThe changes in the spike protein of emerging variants, immunomodulation by viral proteins, and altered expression of host viral entry receptor in pre-existing diseases are the key determinants of host response to SARS-CoV2 and its disease outcome.

by Josua O. Aponte-Serrano, Jordan J. A. Weaver, T. J. Sego, James A. Glazier, Jason E. Shoemaker Respiratory viruses present major public health challenges, as evidenced by the 1918 Spanish Flu, the 1957 H2N2, 1968 H3N2, and 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemics, and the ongoing severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic. Severe RNA virus respiratory infections often correl ate with high viral load and excessive inflammation. Understanding the dynamics of the innate immune response and its manifestations at the cell and tissue levels is vital to understanding the mechanisms of immunopathology and to de...

The most commonly used molecular diagnostic technique is the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). PCR detects a short section of genetic code of interest, a cancer gene, human mRNA or a pathogen's genome. It is used by every specialty in medicine and surgery, with increasing frequency and importance. In this article, the history, steps of the cycle, uses, forms, advantages and disadvantages of PCR are discussed. With the SARS coronavirus-2 pandemic having such an enormous impact on the delivery of elective surgery, decisions to proceed or defer are made by surgeons on a daily basis, based on PCR results.
