Feb 22nd, 2021 - The cancer stem cell (CSC) concept emerged from the recognition of inherent tumor heterogeneity and suggests that within a given tumor, in analogy to normal tissues, there exists a cellular hierarchy composed of a minority of more primitive cells with enhanced longevity (i.e., CSCs) that give rise to shorter-lived, more differentiated cells (i.e., cancer bulk populations), which on their own ar...

Feb 17th, 2021 - Understanding the mortality impact of COVID-19 requires not only counting the dead, but analyzing how premature the deaths are. We calculate years of life lost (YLL) across 81 countries due to COVID-19 attributable deaths, and also conduct an analysis based on estimated excess deaths. We find that over 20.5 million years of life have been lost to COVID-19 globally. As of January 6, 2021, YLL in...

Feb 13th, 2021 - Different groups have recently reported events of SARS-CoV-2 reinfection, where patients had a sequence of positive-negative-positive RT-PCR tests. However, such events could be explained by different scenarios such as intermittent viral shedding, bonafide re-infection or multiple infection with alternating predominance of different viruses.

However, the strength and duration of immunity against this coronavirus are still uncertain. Reinfections have been described but remain rare albeit probably underestimated (31 confirmed cases worldwide as of January 2021), and in most cases less severe than the initial infection [1,2].
