Vitamin D May Prevent Severe COVID-19 Disease And Death

New research from Trinity College and University of Edinburgh has examined the association between vitamin D and COVID-19, and found that ambient ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation (which is key for vitamin D production in the skin) at an individual's place of residence in the weeks before COVID-19 infection, was strongly protective against severe disease and death. Previous studies have linked vitamin D deficiency with an increased susceptibility to viral and bacterial respiratory

Existing Drugs May Inhibit SARS-CoV-2 Virus

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused more than 600,000 deaths in the United States since the start of 2020 and more than 4 million globally. The search for effective treatments against the disease are ongoing, and one hurdle is that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, has a number of tricks up its molecular sleeve when it comes to infecting people. In a recent study published in Nature Communications Biology, researchers from

Disguised Protein May Be A New Target For Cancer Immunotherapy

Researchers at the Francis Crick Institute have identified a protein that helps tumors evade the immune system and, in certain types of cancers, is linked to a poorer chance of survival. The protein could become a target for future cancer treatments. A crucial part of the immune system's response to cancer is a group of white blood cells, called CD8+ T-cells, which kill tumor cells. Before they launch their anti-tumor response,

Lipid Nanoparticles, Key Component of COVID-19 mRNA Vaccines

Lipid nanoparticles have been developed as vehicles for small molecule delivery by the nanomedicine and materials communities and are now a key component of COVID-19 mRNA vaccines. Vaccines against COVID-19 have been developed with unprecedented speed. In particular, mRNA vaccines — a technology already in clinical trials for other infectious diseases, such as influenza — have shown impressive efficacy in clinical trials.  mRNA vaccines rely on the delivery of mRNA into the

Most People Are Susceptible To Type 2 Diabetes

A recent study from scientists at Indiana University School of Medicine, the University of Michigan and Case Western Reserve University has determined that the sequence of insulin has become entrenched at the edge of impaired production, an intrinsic vulnerability unmasked by rare mutations in the insulin gene causing diabetes in childhood. The study exploits biophysical concepts and methods to relate protein chemistry to the emerging field of evolutionary medicine. Insulin is

Potential of Anti-influenza Drugs For The Control of High Pathogenicity Avian In …

Scientists have discovered a route of introduction for High Pathogenicity Avian Influenza Virus (HPAIV) H5N8 into Japan and, in parallel, have investigated the potential of two human anti-influenza drugs for the control of HPAI in birds. Since October 30, 2020, there have been over 30 recorded outbreaks of High Pathogenicity Avian Influenza (HPAI) in domestic poultry and wild fowl in Japan. This outbreak was caused by the influenza A virus H5N8,

The Relationship Between Vitamin D Deficiency And Type 1 Diabetes

Genetically determined vitamin D levels do not have a large effect on risk of type 1 diabetes in Europeans, according to a study published 25th February 2021 in the open-access journal PLOS Medicine by Despoina Manousaki from the CHU Sainte Justine and the University of Montreal, Canada and colleagues. Type 1 diabetes, once known as juvenile diabetes or insulin-dependent diabetes, is a chronic disease in which the pancreas produces little or no insulin. Type 1

New Drug Combination Could Control Blood Sugar And Weight In Diabetes

Scientists have shown that adding an experimental cancer drug to a widely used diabetes treatment improves blood sugar control and weight loss in mice, according to a study published on 22nd, Dec. in eLife. The results pave the way for clinical studies of the new drug combination as a more effective long-term treatment for millions of people with diabetes and obesity. Glucagon-like peptide 1 agonists (GLP-1 analogs) are a relatively new class of

New Therapy For Lung Cancer And Related Secondary Tumors

In 20 - 40% of patients with cancer, metastasis (the development of secondary tumors) in the central nervous system (CNS) occurs. CNS metastatis impacts negatively on a patient's quality of life, and is associated with a poor health prognosis. In a form of cancer known as ALK-rearranged non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), CNS metastasis is known to persist when drugs targeting primary tumors are used. Now, Seiji Yano from Kanazawa University

A New Antiviral Strategy Was Discovered For Treating COVID-19

A research team led by Professor Hongzhe SUN, Norman & Cecilia Yip Professor in Bioinorganic Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, and Professor Kwok Yung YUEN, Henry Fok Professor in Infectious Diseases, Department of Microbiology, Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine of the University of Hong Kong (HKU), has discovered a novel antiviral strategy for treatment of COVID-19. They discovered that a class of metallodrugs currently used in the treatment

Safety And Effectiveness Of First-line Antihypertensive Drug Classes

For those with extremely high blood pressure, or hypertension, there are many initial medication options -- so many that it can be hard to know which one to use. Now, a Yale-coauthored paper in Lancet provides more information about the relative safety and effectiveness of different hypertension drugs in order to inform this critical treatment decision. The study reveals that angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors may not be the best

A Flu Drug Baloxavir Marboxil Can Reduce Spread Within Households

A single dose of the flu drug baloxavir marboxil can reduce the spread of the illness within households, new research concludes. A study examining 752 household contacts of 545 patients with the flu found that flu infections were much less common in household members who received the drug than among those who received a placebo. Only 1.9% of uninfected household contacts who took a single dose of baloxavir marboxil came down

The Things You Need To Know About Boronic Acids

A boronic acid is a compound related to boric acid in which one of the three hydroxyl groups is replaced by an alkyl or aryl group. As a compound containing a carbon–boron bond, members of this class thus belong to the larger class of organoboranes. What's the function about boronic acid? Boronic acids act as Lewis acids. Their unique feature is that they are capable of forming reversible covalent complexes with sugars,
