A novel Nanoligomer treatment for severe COVID-19

A recent study published in the journal ACS Biomaterials Science & Engineering examines the biodistribution and safety of SBCoV207, a novel nanoligomer that was used to target miR-2392 in a murine model. The advent and global spread of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 made it clear that there are no antiviral medicines for […]

Asthmatics are more likely to be Obese

The findings of the study, which were first to show this link, according to authors, were published online in the journal Thorax. The study was directed by Subhabrata Moitra, PhD, a postdoctoral researcher in the division of pulmonary medicine at the University of Alberta in Edmonton. According to a recent multinational study with more than […]

Fluticasone, an Asthma drug, is ineffective as a COVID treatment

Dr. Adrian Hernandez, executive director of the Duke Clinical Research Institute and the study’s principal investigator, stated in a news release that there was no evidence of a faster time to recovery or a decrease in hospitalizations in participants who took fluticasone furoate compared to those who took a placebo. Fluticasone furoate, another medication used […]

Pulse Oximeters less accurate for individuals with darker skin

Due to pulse oximeters’ subpar performance, people of color receive less supplementary oxygen in the ICU, a research found. According to research by Eric Raphael Gottlieb, MD, MS, of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, and colleagues, average oxygen delivery rates were lower for Asian, Black, and Hispanic patients than for white patients. When controlling […]

A treatment review for Asthma shows inconsistent effects on Airway Hyperresponsiveness

Findings from a literature review presented at the American Thoracic Society’s (ATS) International Conference 2022 provide insight into the mechanisms of airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) in asthma and the clinical benefits of multiple biologic treatments. Researchers searched MEDLINE for randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials of biologics (approved, non-approved, and discontinued) used in the treatment of asthma that […]

Low antibody levels in breastmilk associated with COVID-19 infection

The current study, published online in the journal Microbiology Spectrum, seeks to explore the link between this increase and the lack of antibodies against these pathogens in maternal blood and milk. Passive immunity in breast milk, which contains antibodies to certain viruses due of maternal exposures, protects young newborns from respiratory viruses. Serious alarm has been […]

How Does Alcohol Consumption Affect the Immune System?

Although alcohol consumption is typically associated with liver damage, both moderate and chronic alcohol use can significantly impact the immune system, thereby limiting the ability of the body to protect itself from infection and disease adequately. The immune system is typically categorized into the innate and adaptive immune response systems, both of which are essential […]

Effective oral antiviral medication for Respiratory Syncytial Virus

According to researchers at Georgia State University’s Center for Translational Antiviral Research, an oral antiviral medication that targets a crucial component of the respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) polymerase and prevents the synthesis of viral genetic material has been identified. The discovery may lead to the development of a potent remedy for RSV disease. The research, […]
