Pneumonia could be treated with drugs for cystic fibrosis

Researchers from Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin discovered that cystic fibrosis medication may be useful in treating pneumonia after discovering the molecular pathways that cause fluid buildup in the lungs. SARS-CoV-2 and pneumococcal pathogens can cause severe pneumonia. If the airways get clogged, the patient is in danger of developing acute respiratory distress syndrome. Researchers from Charité […]

Harvard study links severe COVID with genetic signs of brain aging

The study found severe COVID was linked with many of the same gene expression changes in brain tissue seen in old age. According to a study using post-mortem brain tissue samples, severe COVID-19 is linked to biochemical indicators of brain ageing. The new study was released in the Nature Aging journal. The study discovered aging-like […]

Monkeypox virus may cause heart problems

In a report that appears in JACC: Case Reports, researchers covered a case of monkeypox possibly being linked to acute myocarditis, which occurs when the myocardium of the heart muscle becomes inflamed. Monkeypox is a zoonotic virus, meaning it is a type of virus that can spread between animals and humans. According to the Centers for Disease Control and […]

Long Covid symptoms, the source of fatigue found

A recent study by researchers at Griffith University in Brisbane, Australia, may open the door for research on the long Covid, one of the least recognised and most crippling effects of Sars-Cov-2 infection. The condition also develops months after coronavirus negativization, when the patient is no longer able to spread the illness but nonetheless experiences […]

According to recent animal studies, men with Omicron infections may respond better to the oral medication Molnupiravir than women

Research published in October 2021 in the BMJ showed that Molnupiravir reduced the risk of hospitalization by 50% in people at higher risk of severe COVID-19. While COVID-19 vaccines have been crucial in helping reduce the number of fatalities caused by SARS-CoV-2 infections, antivirals also played a part. One of those drugs is molnupiravir, which the Food & […]
