Oct 21st, 2020 - Many academic institutions are collecting blood samples from patients seeking treatment for COVID-19 to build research biorepositories. It may be feasible to extract pharmacogenomic information from biorepositories for clinical use. We sought to characterize the potential value of multi-gene pharmacogenomic testing among individuals hospitalized with COVID-19 in the United States. We performed ...

Oct 20th, 2020 - Although nasal continuous positive airway pressure or non-invasive ventilation is used to manage some patients with acute lung injury due to COVID-19, such patients also demonstrate increased minute ventilation which makes it hard, if the device is used in line with the manufacturer's instructions, to achieve adequate oxygen delivery. In addition, if a hospital contains many such patients, then...

Oct 20th, 2020 - In December 2019, a novel coronavirus was isolated from the respiratory epithelium of patients with unexplained pneumonia in Wuhan, China. This pathogen, named severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), causes a pathogenic condition that has been termed coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and has reached pandemic proportions. As of 17 September 2020, more than 30 million conf...

Oct 20th, 2020 - Conspicuous color is a common trait of foliar galls, but their relationship with gall-inducing insects is unknown. Red and green galls were taken from sunny or shady parts of peach species Prunus persica f. rubro-plena with peach aphid Tuberocephalus momonis infestation. We found that the loss of photosynthetic pigments was associated with the conspicuous coloration of green gall tissues. The c...

Oct 20th, 2020 - There have been arguments on whether angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEI) and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB) treatment alters the risk of COVID-19 susceptibility and disease severity. We identified a total of 102 eligible studies for systematic review, in which 49 studies adjusting for confounders were included in the meta-analysis. We found no association between prior ACEI/ARB...

Oct 20th, 2020 - Pangong Tso is a long and narrow lake situated at an altitude of ~ 4266 m amsl in the Himalayan Plateau on the side of the India/China border. Biofilm has been observed in a small area near the shore of Pangong Tso. Bacterial communities of the lake sediment, water and biofilms were studied using amplicon sequencing of V3-V4 region of the 16S rRNA gene. The standard QIIME pipeline was used for ...

Oct 20th, 2020 - The orf8b protein of the coronavirus SARS-CoV, analogous to SARS-CoV-2, triggers the NLRP3 inflammasome in macrophages in vitro. Deregulated inflammasome-mediated release of interleukin-1 family cytokines is important in hyper-inflammatory syndromes, like happens in SARS-CoV-2-mediated cytokine release syndrome. We propose that an intense inflammasome formation characterizes the lungs of patien...

Oct 20th, 2020 - Plasma specimens from COVID-19 patients were double-tested for anti-SARS-CoV-2 antibodies by two different batches of MAGLUMI™ 2019-nCov IgM/IgG assays to evaluate IgM/IgG levels, qualitative interpretation, antibody kinetics and linearity of diluted specimen. Here we show that (i) high-level IgM specimens need to be diluted with negative human plasma but not kit diluents and (ii) measured anti...

Oct 20th, 2020 - Mitochondrial respiratory chain complexes play important roles in energy production via oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) to drive various biochemical processes in eukaryotic cells. These processes require coordination with other cell organelles, especially the nucleus. Factors encoded by both nuclear and mitochondrial DNA are involved in the formation of active respiratory chain complexes and...
