Efficacy and harms of convalescent plasma for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis
CONCLUSIONS: In comparison to SOC or placebo + SOC, CP did not reduce all-cause mortality in RCTs of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Convalescent plasma did not have an effect on other clinical or safety outcomes. Until now there is no good quality evidence to recommend CP for hospitalized COVID-19 patients.PMID:34522254 | PMC:PMC8425263 | DOI:10.5114/aoms/132492 (Source: Archives of Medical Science)

The eccentric mechanotransduction, neuro-muscular transmission, and structural reversibility of muscle fatty infiltration. An experimental advanced disuse muscle-wasting model of rabbit supraspinatus
CONCLUSIONS: Critical MFI in a disuse model of rabbit supraspinatus FD, CT grade> 2°, is substantially reversible by eccentric training despite subclinical impairment of neuromuscular transmission. In addition, 0.63% reversal of MFI is correlated with 1% hypertrophy of type I and II muscle fibre diameter.PMID:34522269 | PMC:PMC8425242 | DOI:10.5114/aoms/131956 (Source: Archives of Medical Science)

Efficacy and harms of convalescent plasma for treatment of hospitalized COVID-19 patients: a systematic review and meta-analysis
CONCLUSIONS: In comparison to SOC or placebo + SOC, CP did not reduce all-cause mortality in RCTs of hospitalized COVID-19 patients. Convalescent plasma did not have an effect on other clinical or safety outcomes. Until now there is no good quality evidence to recommend CP for hospitalized COVID-19 patients.PMID:34522254 | PMC:PMC8425263 | DOI:10.5114/aoms/132492 (Source: Archives of Medical Science)

Human papillomavirus infection predicts a better survival rate in patients with oropharyngeal cancer
CONCLUSIONS: Our data show that HPV infection is a predictor of better disease-free and overall survival in patients with oropharyngeal cancer. For HPV-positive oropharyngeal cancer patients weekly given cisplatin with concurrent radiotherapy can be an alternative to three weekly given cisplatin considering effectiveness and early toxicity.PMID:34522260 | PMC:PMC8425231 | DOI:10.5114/aoms.2019.83658 (Source: Archives of Medical Science)

The eccentric mechanotransduction, neuro-muscular transmission, and structural reversibility of muscle fatty infiltration. An experimental advanced disuse muscle-wasting model of rabbit supraspinatus
CONCLUSIONS: Critical MFI in a disuse model of rabbit supraspinatus FD, CT grade> 2°, is substantially reversible by eccentric training despite subclinical impairment of neuromuscular transmission. In addition, 0.63% reversal of MFI is correlated with 1% hypertrophy of type I and II muscle fibre diameter.PMID:34522269 | PMC:PMC8425242 | DOI:10.5114/aoms/131956 (Source: Archives of Medical Science)
