Markers of SARS-CoV-2 shedding in vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals

November 24, 2021

Via: The Medical News

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccines effectively prevent severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)-related illness and death. Because COVID-19 vaccines are not 100% effective in preventing illness, certain infections among those who have been vaccinated are expected. The involvement of […]

Does SARS-CoV-2 infection contribute to adrenal gland dysfunction?

November 23, 2021

Via: The Medical News

New research published in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology suggests that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection can directly target and cause cellular damage to the adrenal glands. The resulting adrenal dysfunction may explain adrenal insufficiency in several […]

Potential biomarkers of coagulopathy and disease severity in COVID-19

November 15, 2021

Via: The Medical News

Coagulopathy in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) displays unusually. Not only do patients display impaired fibrinolysis, but also platelet aggregation, inflammation, and microthrombi. Understanding this pathology could help healthcare workers treat these symptoms, often associated with low survival levels in severe […]
