Role of Mycobacterium w for the Treatment of COVID-19: An Observational Study
CONCLUSION: The patients of COVID-19 may deteriorate due to exaggerated production of cytokines which may result in adverse outcomes. Mw used earlier in the disease not only effectively prevents excessive cytokine production but also contribute to rapid recovery. Mw was also found to be safe in use. Larger randomized controlled trials are recommended to assess the role of Mw in COVID-19.PMID:34227770 (Source: Journal of the Association of Physicians of India)

Prevalence and Clinical Correlates of Myositis Specific Autoantibodies in Idiopathic Immune-Mediated Inflammatory Myositis - Results from a Multicentric Cohort (MyoIN) from India
J Assoc Physicians India. 2021 Jan;69(1):36-40.ABSTRACTThere is a need to understand the clinical and antibody associations in patients with IIM in various ethnicities and geographical areas. Patients who fulfilled Bohan's and Peter criteria of IIM and seen between October 2017 through Jan 2020 were enrolled in this study at 3 centres. Clinical and relevant laboratory parameters were recorded in a pre designed case record form. MSA and MAA to 16 antigens were performed by line blot assay using Euroimmun (Luebec, Germany) as per manufacturer's instruction. Of the 150 patients, 13 were juvenile onset.

Psychosocial Effects of Isolation on Nipah Virus Infection Suspects during an Outbreak
CONCLUSIONS: Of the 81 subjects, 73 could be contacted with a response rate of 90.12%. The mean age was 38 years (SD = 15.43) and 13.7% were health care workers. 63% of the subjects experienced fear of death during isolation stay and 12.3% of the subjects had lost their relatives or friends to Nipah infection. The mean IES score obtained was 10.78 (SD: 9.679, range 0-49) and 5 subjects had above the cut off 22.

Real Time Flash Glucose Monitoring: Now a Reality in India
J Assoc Physicians India. 2021 Jan;69(1):71-73.ABSTRACTTight glycemic control has been recognised as the cornerstone of modern diabetes management. Until recently, glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) was the only reliable tool for measuring glycemic control, but it is not an ideal metric as it is retrospective, unable to pick up hypo- and hyperglycemic excursions and prone to interference by conditions such as anemia and hemoglobinopathies. The advent of continuous glucose monitoring systems is a giant leap in diabetes management as it enables visualisation of glucose trends over periods of time, helping in identification of hypo-...

Transplacental COVID Antibodies and Cytokine Storm in Newborn: Presence of Antibodies does not Indicate Protection Always!
J Assoc Physicians India. 2021 Jan;69(1):76-77.ABSTRACTPregnant women are one of the most important groups who need special attention during this Covid-19 pandemic. Women's physiological changes in the immune system during pregnancy put them and their neonates at increased risk of negative outcomes of COVID-19 infection but the data is still scarce to comment upon.
