In December 2019, a new pandemic emerged, the COVID-19 disease caused by a SARS-Cov-2 virus. One of the most common symptoms of COVID-19 is mainly respiratory failure and patients requires assistance by mechanical ventilation. Ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) is a risk of this assistance. Since the beginning of the pandemic, Standard of care have evolved with new data. The prevalence of these VAPs seems significantly higher in the population of patients with ARDS COVID-19 (40-50%) and their ecology seems to have evolved over time, particularly in terms of bacterial resistance. Investigators want to describe and compare this evolution of bacterial and fungal ecology as well as identify potential risk factors that may be associated with these changes in ecology during different waves.
This study was conducted to examine the use of integrative treatment methods by individuals undergoing Covid-19. In this study, which was designed in the qualitative and phenomenological type, the criterion sampling method was used and 12 people were included in the sample.
People with sarcoidosis, particularly those with significant lung and/or cardiac involvement, who become infected with severe acute respiratory syndrome-coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) are likely at increased risk of complications or death from COVID-19. While SARS-CoV-2 vaccines are highly efficacious in preventing COVID-19 in the general population, whether vaccination provides similar protection in people with sarcoidosis is unknown. The investigators hypothesize that people with sarcoidosis develop less robust antibody and cell-mediated immune responses to SARS-CoV-2 vaccination than healthy individuals, both as a consequence of the disease itself and due to treatment with immunosuppressive medications. This hypothesis will be examined by determining levels of anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike protein immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody (Specific Aim 1) and measuring SARS-CoV-2-specific activation of peripheral blood T cells (Specific Aim 2) following SARS-CoV-2 vaccination in individuals with sarcoidosis treated and not treated with immunosuppressive medications, in comparison to age- and sex-matched healthy controls. For Specific Aim 1, a second-generation anti-SARS-CoV-2 spike IgG assay calibrated against an independent virus neutralization assay will be utilized. The results of this investigation will address a critical gap in the understanding of vaccine responses in people with sarcoidosis. In addition, the study will contribute knowledge needed to inform clinicians' recommendations to sarcoidosis patients regarding risk of infection after SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, and will help lay the basis for future trials to evaluate the possible benefit of vaccine boosters in individuals with poor immune responses to initial vaccination.
The risk for the development of complications from COVID-19 occurs mainly in patients over 65 years of age, with obesity, arterial hypertension, chronic lung diseases and immunosuppression states. Since the persistence of radiological imaging correlates with physiological deterioration, these patients are likely to be at increased risk of parenchymal lung disease. It is known that the administration of Ozone, in any of the three phases of COVID-19 infection, is useful in the management of acute disease, both for its viricidal and anti-inflammatory activity, however, in the convalescence stage when the persistence of sequelae that can severely affect the quality of life of patients is identified.
The aim of the study is to assess the expression of TLR 3, 7, and 9 in the population of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) and in B lymphocytes (CD19+), T lymphocytes (CD4+ and CD8+) using flow cytometry in relation to the clinical parameters and outcome of COVID 19 patients .
Popular topic: Clinical study on immunogenicity and safety evaluation of sequentially enhanced immunity with recombinant Novel Coronavirus vaccine (CHO cells) Research purpose:Main purpose:To evaluate the immunogenicity of recombinant Novel Coronavirus vaccine (CHO cells) after sequential booster immunization in populations vaccinated with two doses of marketed Novel Coronavirus inactivated vaccine.Secondary purpose:To evaluate the safety of recombinant Novel Coronavirus vaccine (CHO cells) after sequential booster immunization in populations vaccinated with two doses of marketed Novel Coronavirus inactivated vaccine. Overall design:An open experimental design was used in this study Study population:The study involved people 18 years of age and older. Test groups: All subjects recruited must have received two doses of Novel Coronavirus inactivated vaccine for 3 to 13 months (the interval between booster and basic immunization is divided into 3 groups:120 subjects at 3-4 months (91-120 days), 6-8 months (181-240 days) and 11-13 months (331-390 days) were vaccinated with one dose of recombinant Novel Coronavirus vaccine (CHO cells).
The practice of providing palliative care in the situation of the COVID-19 pandemic in the perspective of physicians and nurses - survey study (PEOpLe-C19 study)
the SARS-CoV2 pandemic has led to a major reorganization of the French Hematology and stem cell transplant departments since march 2020. Since the allogeneic stem cell transplant cannot be delayed especially when patients with hematological malignancies are in a fragile remission, risking relapse at any time, the necessity to maintain safe hematopoietic stem cell (HSC) donations from match unrelated or family donors appears rapidly mandatory during the pandemic period. To increase the safety of voluntary donations, a SARS-CoV2 Polymerase Chain Reaction test has been recommended to donors by regulatory agencies. However, due to the lack of homogeneity of care at European level, some countries do not require SARS-CoV-2 testing in asymptomatic donors. In this case, the test is performed on additional EDTA tube accompanying the graft on arrival or in the case of a missing tube (not collected or forgotten), on few milliliters of the HSC graft. This circuit had the consequence of forcing the clinicians to wait for the test result before starting the patient's conditioning regimen. The graft being already collected and received at the transplant center, and the conditioning regimen lasting on an average of 5 days, this resulted in its conservation during this minimum period and therefore its freezing by the associated cell therapy unit. However, this practice has so far been exceptional regarding allogeneic transplants, which are primarily freshly infused to ensure to the recipient the highest viability and functionality of stem cells. Since the entire freezing-thawing and washing process may impact cell viability and delay the patient's aplastic recovery, this study aimed to analyze the results of one year of allogeneic transplants infused after freezing in terms of graft quality after thawing and clinical consequences.
The purpose of the study is to describe the safety and efficacy outcomes of a cohort of ICU patients with severe COVID-19 respiratory disease treated with therapeutic dose Apixaban for COVID-19 at a tertiary public health care setting.
TERABio Ltd. has developed a rapid screening tool intended to determine if a tested individual is COVID-19-free (Negative to COVID-19).
