Background: Amantadine has been proposed to inhibit E-channel conductance in reconstituted lipid bilayers of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). We aimed to study whether patients on amantadine have altered risks of contracting COVID-19 infection.Methods: We conducted a hospital-based, observational, retrospective cohort study using data for patients on amantadine supported by data given by the patients through an online questionnaire. We included registered amantadine users in our hospital for 6 months or more on March 1, 2020, and non-amantadine users to act as the control group. We used forced ...

We describe a patient clinically diagnosed with CBS whose initial presentation was psychiatric and rather atypical. His clinical picture included psychotic depression and delusional jealousy. Misdiagnosing these syndromes may delay the initiation of the treatment and worsen the patients' condition, as well as increase the burden of the caretakers. Finally, COVID-19-related changes in the organization of health services complicated the diagnosis and follow-up processes of this patient.PMID:34587867 | DOI:10.1080/13554794.2021.1984539

J Environ Pathol Toxicol Oncol. 2021;40(3):37-49. doi: 10.1615/JEnvironPatholToxicolOncol.2021038365.ABSTRACTIt has now been almost a year since the emergence of the deadly SARS-CoV-2 with millions of people losing their lives due to resultant COVID-19. Apart from the well-known consequences of respiratory illnesses, it has even effortlessly mapped itself into the nervous system through routes like blood, CSF, neurons, and olfactory cells. Interestingly, the interaction of SARS-CoV-2 with the nervous system cells like neurons, microglia, and astrocytes has been a factor to worsen COVID-19 through its neuroinflammatory acti...
