Brain Navi develops new nasal swab robot to prevent cross infections
Inspired by the pandemic, Brain Navi developed a new robot to perform nasal swab tests autonomously to prevent cross infections so we can save the medical system and reestablish economies.
COVID-19 rapid antibody test receives CE mark and mass production begins
The COVID-19 rapid antibody test, developed by Abingdon Health, the medical device manufacturer leading the UK-Rapid Test Consortium, has received its CE mark. This means it is approved for professional use in the UK and EU.
Leading expert is sounding the alarm on newly-identified symptom of coronavirus
A VascularNurse Consultant and senior lecturer at the University of Huddersfield is sounding the alarm on a newly-identified symptom of the coronavirus, dubbed COVID-toes, after witnessing a sharp increase in the amount of patients being referred to vascular clinics, with similar symptoms to arterial disease but, who then test positive for COVID-19.
Don’t count on lower premiums despite pandemic-driven boon for insurers
When COVID-19 smacked the United States in March and April, health plans feared medical costs could skyrocket, jacking up premiums drastically in 2021, when millions of the newly unemployed might still be out of work.
Avoiding care during the pandemic could mean life or death
These days, Los Angeles acting teacher Deryn Warren balances her pain with her fear. She's a bladder cancer patient who broke her wrist in November. She still needs physical therapy for her wrist, and she's months late for a cancer follow-up.
Managing cancer patients during COVID-19 pandemic
An ESMO interdisciplinary expert consensus paper on how to manage cancer patients during the COVID-19 pandemic has been published today in Annals of Oncology.
New simple way of detecting COVID-19 in blood plasma
Even as the COVID-19 pandemic claims increasing numbers of patients, testing numbers are rising in most nations at the leading edge. However, the current reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT PCR) testing is often unavailable and takes up to several days for results to arrive.
War of sugars - estrogen provides protection in COVID-19
Now a new study published on the preprint server bioRxiv in July 2020 reports that sex hormones could affect the function of the fusion protein that is dependent upon the human ACE2 receptor, thus preventing the entry of the virus into the host cell.
Researchers report a liquid biopsy for COVID-19
A new study published on the preprint server medRxiv in July 2020 reports the potential of cell-free DNA as a marker of the severity of disease in COVID-19. This could help triage patients as well as provide a prognostic marker.
Researcher uses in silico analysis of SARS-CoV-2 spike protein to fast-track passive immunity
With millions of COVID-19 cases reported across the globe, people are turning to antibody tests to find out whether they have been exposed to the coronavirus that causes the disease. But what are antibodies? Why are they important? If we have them, are we immune to COVID-19? And if not, why not?
CZI, CZ Biohub, and The State Of California join forces to track COVID-19 transmission
Today, the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, in partnership with the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, announced that it will provide free whole genome sequencing and analysis of the SARS-CoV-2 virus to all California Departments of Public Health and California local health jurisdictions through a newly-launched effort called the California COVID Tracker.
From swab to sequencing - scalable method for identifying SARS-CoV-2
A research group headed by Stanford University scientists has developed a scalable, high throughput method to generate high fidelity whole genome and HLA sequencing, viral genomes, and representation of human transcriptome from single nasopharyngeal swabs of coronavirus disease (COVID19) patients. Their results are published on the medRxiv preprint server.
Deep neural networks to identify pneumonia caused by COVID-19 in CT scans
As COVID-19 cases in the United States continue to surge, there is an ongoing search for quick and reliable testing.
Caution needed in reopening of U.S. primary schools during COVID-19
Researchers in Italy have reported on the success of the contact tracing efforts made to control the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak in the province of Trento during phase I (March to April) of the epidemic.
Novel vaccine candidate robustly protects non-human primates against SARS-CoV-2
The development of a safe and effective vaccine will likely be required to end the COVID-19 pandemic. A group of scientists, led by Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center immunologist Dan H. Barouch, MD, PhD, now report that a leading candidate COVID-19 vaccine developed at BIDMC in collaboration with Johnson & Johnson raised neutralizing antibodies and robustly protected non-human primates against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Smoking worsens COVID-19 severity, warn researchers
A study conducted by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles, suggests that smoking increases the risk of more severe lung disease in cases of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection.
KHN’s ‘What the Health?’: Republicans in COVID disarray
President Donald Trump's pivot to a more serious view of the coronavirus pandemic didn't last long. This week, he was again touting hydroxychloroquine, an antimalarial drug that has not been shown to work against the virus.
Medi-Cal agency’s new head wants to tackle disparities and racism
When Will Lightbourne looked at the statistics behind California's coronavirus cases, the disparities were "blindingly clear": Blacks and Latinos are dying at higher rates than most other Californians.
New test rapidly determines neutralizing antibodies against Sars-Cov-2
To determine immunity to Sars-Cov-2 and the effectiveness of potential vaccines, the amount of neutralizing antibodies in the blood of recovered or vaccinated individuals must be determined.
Namaste noir: Yoga co-op seeks to diversify yoga to heal racialized trauma
Beverly Grant spent years juggling many roles before yoga helped her restore her balance.
