Evolving Patterns of Metastasis in Renal Cell Carcinoma: Do We Need to Perform Routine Bone Imaging?
Journal of Kidney Cancer and VHL; Lin J

Oct 13th, 2021 - Advance diagnostic and treatment modalities have improved outcomes for renal cell carcinoma (RCC) patients, but the prognosis for those with metastatic disease (mRCC) remains poor. As given metastatic distribution is critical in guiding treatment decisions for mRCC patients, we evaluated evolving metastatic patterns to assess if our current practice standards effectively address patient needs.

Biomarkers of Post-COVID Depression
Journal of Clinical Medicine; Lorkiewicz P

Sep 14th, 2021 - The COVID-19 pandemic is spreading around the world and 187 million people have already been affected. One of its after-effects is post-COVID depression, which, according to the latest data, affects up to 40% of people who have had SARS-CoV-2 infection. A very important issue for the mental health of the general population is to look for the causes of this complication and its biomarkers.

Intranasal inhibitor blocks omicron and other variants of SARS-CoV-2
Research Square; Mäkelä AR, .

Dec 28th, 2021 - The emergence of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant capable of escaping neutralizing antibodies emphasizes the need for prophylactic strategies to complement vaccination in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic. Nasal epithelium is rich in the ACE2 receptor and important for SARS-CoV-2 transmission by supporting early viral replication before seeding to the lung1. Intranasal administration of SARS-CoV-2 n...

CDC Updates and Shortens Recommended Isolation and Quarantine Period for General Population
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

Dec 27th, 2021 - Given what we currently know about COVID-19 and the Omicron variant, CDC is shortening the recommended time for isolation from 10 days for people with COVID-19 to 5 days, if asymptomatic, followed by 5 days of wearing a mask when around others. The change is motivated by science demonstrating that the majority of SARS-CoV-2 transmission occurs early in the course of illness, generally in the 1-...

The Omicron variant is highly resistant against antibody-mediated neutralization – implications for control of the COVID-19 pandemic
Cell Hoffmann M, .

Dec 23rd, 2021 - The rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 Omicron variant suggests that the virus might become globally dominant. Further, the high number of mutations in the viral spike-protein raised concerns that the virus might evade antibodies induced by infection or vaccination. Here, we report that the Omicron spike was resistant against most therapeutic antibodies but remained susceptible to inhibition by Sot...

Latest on Omicron Variant and COVID-19 Vaccine Protection
NIH Director's Blog; Collins FS.

Dec 14th, 2021 - There’s been great concern about the new Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19. A major reason is Omicron has accumulated over 50 mutations, including about 30 in the spike protein, the part of the coronavirus that mRNA vaccines teach our immune systems to attack. All of these genetic changes raise the possibility that Omicron could cause breakthrough infections in...

The epidemiological relevance of the COVID-19-vaccinated population is increasing
The Lancet; Kampf G.

Dec 1st, 2021 - High COVID-19 vaccination rates were expected to reduce transmission of SARS-CoV-2 in populations by reducing the number of possible sources for transmission and thereby to reduce the burden of COVID-19 disease. Recent data, however, indicate that the epidemiological relevance of COVID-19 vaccinated individuals is increasing. In the UK it was described that secondary attack rates among househol...

The Lancet; Kampf G.

Dec 1st, 2021 - The Robert Koch-Institute in Germany regularly reports about the national COVID-19 situation and population-based vaccination level. But a consistent scale is not used. A person is classified as “COVID-19 case” whenever tested positive for SARS-CoV-2 irrespective of any symptoms. But symptomatic fully vaccinated COVID-19 patients are described as “probable breakthrough infection”

Biomarkers in Medicine; Zheng F, Pan Y et. al.

Jan 15th, 2022 - Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) can be induced by multiple clinical factors, including sepsis, acute pancreatitis, trauma, intestinal ischemia/reperfusion and burns. However, these factors alone may poorly explain the risk and outcomes of ARDS. Emerging evidence suggests that genomic-based or transcriptomic-based biomarkers may hold the promise to establish predictive or prognostic s...

Jan 15th, 2022 - Age-stratified serosurvey data are often used to understand spatiotemporal trends in disease incidence and exposure through estimating the Force-of-Infection (FoI). Typically, median or mean FoI estimates are used as the response variable in predictive models, often overlooking the uncertainty in estimated FoI values when fitting models and evaluating their predictive ability. To assess how thi...

Journal of Medical Case Reports; Hashimoto H, Maruo T et. al.

Jan 15th, 2022 - Symptomatic pituitary metastasis is rare; furthermore, it can result in diabetes insipidus and panhypopituitarism. Since diabetes insipidus is masked by concurrent panhypopituitarism, it can impede the diagnosis of pituitary dysfunction. A 68-year-old Japanese female suffering from pituitary and thalamic metastases caused by untreated breast cancer, underwent a biopsy targeting the thalamus, no...
