SYNE-COV for predicting COVID-19 outcomes - Medtech innovation briefing (MIB264), NICE (published 15th June 2021)
The technology described in this briefing is SYNE ‑COV. It is a cloud-based software designed to help manage COVID‑19 in hospitals. It does this by predicting the chance of people with COVID‑19 being admitted for intensive care, having mechanical ventilation, or dying while in hospital. The innovative aspect is that it is a prediction tool us ing machine-learning algorithms that analyse data from electronic health records to help clinicians'decision making in real time. The intended place in therapy would be alongside existing early warning scores in hospitals for monitoring deterioration in people with COVID ‑19. ...

Using a nurse-initiated bedside tool to decrease inappropriate testing for Clostridioides difficile in hospital settings
This study evaluated a paper-based bedside C. difficile screening tool on the number of C. difficile laboratory tests performed and number of C. difficile infection (CDI) diagnoses. Nurses used the tool to determine whether stool should be sent for C. difficile testing. The tool provided indications for stool testing. We collected data on the number of C. difficile stool tests performed and CDI diagnoses for nine months before (PreT) and after (PostT) tool implementation in the hospital. We found a 31% reduction in the mean monthly number of C. difficile tests performed (37 PreT to 25 PostT) and a 56% reduction in CDI diag...

You don’t want to be a virus in Dr. David Ho’s lab. Pretty much every day since the COVID-19 pandemic began, Ho and his team have done nothing but find ways to stress SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes the disease. His goal: pressure the virus relentlessly enough that it mutates to survive, so drug developers can understand how the virus might respond to new treatments. As a virologist with decades of experience learning about another obstinate virus, HIV, Ho knows just how to apply that mutation-generating stress, whether by starving the virus, bathing it in antibodies that disrupt its ability to infect cells, ...
