Oct 31st, 2020 - In 2019, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) emerged in China, ultimately causing the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic. Many persons with SARS-CoV-2 infection have since flown into and out of COVID-19–affected areas. Some countries quarantine arriving passengers. Airports are also screening passenger body temperatures before boarding and after arrival. Recent inv...

Oct 21st, 2020 - Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), the global pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2, has resulted thus far in greater than 933,000 deaths worldwide; yet disease pathogenesis remains unclear. Clinical and immunological features of patients with COVID-19 have highlighted a potential role for changes in immune activity in regulating disease severity. However, little is known about the responses in human...

Oct 21st, 2020 - ACE2 has emerged as a double agent in the COVID-19 ordeal being physiologically protective yet conducive of viral infection. The identification of ACE2 in as many as 72 tissues suggests that extra-pulmonary invasion and damage is likely, which indeed has already been demonstrated by cardiovascular and gastro-intestinal symptoms. On the other hand, identifying ACE2 dysregulation in patients with...

Oct 21st, 2020 - The cytokine storm has been frequently reported to occur in patients with severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Data from the literature suggest that elevated levels of inflammatory mediators, such as interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8, and tumor necrosis factor, indicate a severe course or the fatality of the disease. Several therapeutic options have been employed to treat critically ill patients,...
