This study was carried out to determine the fear of Covid-19 and the compliance with protective measures of students who continue their education face-to-face during the covid-19 pandemic process.
Individuals susceptible to SARS-CoV-2 and the illness it causes (COVID-19) are comprised of heterogeneous populations with a large risk spectrum for more severe disease. Pre-existing risk factors for a more severe course include respiratory and cardiovascular disease, morbid obesity, diabetes, underlying kidney or liver disease, and immunocompromised status. Whether children and young adults with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) or juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) receiving immunomodulating biologic and other therapies which are known to increase risk of viral infection are at increased risk of complications from COVID-19 or post-infectious co-morbidities, including the recently described multi inflammatory syndrome (MISC), is entirely unclear. This research focuses on the heretofore uncharacterized immune response to SARS-CoV-2 infection in children and young adults with IBD or JIA who are receiving maintenance immunosuppressive biologic therapies. Given the large Connecticut based infusion program, in a region of the United States with a recent large outbreak of COVID-19, the investigators have a unique opportunity to address a glaring knowledge gap in this unique pediatric, adolescent, and young adult population. The investigators will longitudinally determine antibody development and durability to SARS-CoV-2 in approximately 450-500 children and young adults with IBD or JIA receiving biologic therapy over a two year period using a highly sensitive and specific quantitative assay utilizing novel technology. This period will include a return to school or work for many with likely resurgent infections, as well as the possible introduction of anti-SARS CoV-2 vaccines. The specific aim is to study the acute and convalescent antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 infection in a cohort of children and young adults receiving infusions of biologic therapies for IBD and JIA.
The purpose of this study is to describe demographic and clinical characteristics of participants who are hospitalized due to coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19), treatment use for COVID-19 and COVID-19 symptoms, and composite outcomes of COVID-19. This study will also compare composite outcomes between COVID-19 participants treated with and without anticoagulant therapy during follow-up period.
The aim of the study is to provide clinical decision support to healthcare professionals using a wearable for non-invasive multimodal monitoring, allowing early detection of disease progression to severe forms, as well as the detection of significant clinical events. For the development of the study, 500 individuals with COVID-19 in home confinement will be randomly assigned to form part of the control group, which will be followed conventionally by Primary Care Professionals, or to the experimental group, which will also be provided with the wearable device for non-invasive multimodal monitoring linked to an App for transfering data. Furthermore, the patient will be able to interact with the application on three times daily by indicating the symptoms contemplated and answering the decision clinical questions. In this way, alarms can be generated in the presence of symptoms or significant alterations in the parameters monitored by the device, which the health professionals of the Primary Care teams included in the study will evaluate at the appropriate time, taking the best decision in each case.
To date, little information is available on the prevalence of Covid-19 and data are lacking on the proportion of patients, institutional residents and caregivers who have actually been exposed to SARS Cov-2. With the NG Biotech rapid serological test, an individual's immunological status (presence of IgM and IgG antibodies) can be determined in 15 minutes on a finger-prick blood sample. The proposed trial will be a noninterventional study of immunological status among the residents and caregivers of 26 nursing homes and 4 geriatric healthcare institutions belonging to the UNIVI Group who are representative of the institutional geriatric population in France. The NG Biotech rapid test will be carried out concomitantly with polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests performed within the framework of a national screening campaign. Data on risk factors in staff members and on specific COVID 19 symptoms in residents will also be collected. The study will terminate for residents and caregivers whose tests are both negative (absence of infection and no exposure to the virus). For residents and caregivers who have at least one positive test, follow-up visits will be scheduled in order to study the serology time course and the occurrence of reinfection (follow-up questionnaire).
This study was designed as a randomized controlled, pre-test-post-test control group in order to determine the effect of laughter therapy on anxiety, life satisfaction and psychological well-being of nursing students. Laughter therapy was applied to the experimental group for at least 60 minutes, 10 sessions two days a week. For the evaluation, the state-continuity anxiety scale, life satisfaction scale, psychological well-being scale were applied at the pre-application stage (pre-test) and after the laughter therapy sessions (post-test). The following hypotheses were included in this study; H1: Laughter therapy given during the Covid19 pandemic reduces the anxiety level of intern students. H2: Laughter therapy given during the Covid19 pandemic affects the life satisfaction of intern students. H3: During the Covid19 pandemic process, the laughter therapy given to interns affects the relationship between anxiety levels and life satisfaction. H4: Laughter therapy given to intern students during the Covid19 pandemic process affects psychological well-being.
The objective of the clinical study is to evaluate the tolerability, safety, immunogenicity and prophylactic efficacy of the EpiVacCorona vaccine in volunteers aged 18 and above. The study tasks are to: - evaluate the safety of the EpiVacCorona vaccine when administered twice intramuscularly; - evaluate the tolerability of the EpiVacCorona vaccine when administered twice intramuscularly; - identify any adverse events to the administration of the EpiVacCorona vaccine; - investigate the humoral immune response following two doses of the EpiVacCorona vaccine; - investigate the cell-mediated immune response following two doses of the EpiVacCorona vaccine; - evaluate the prophylactic efficacy of the EpiVacCorona vaccine when administered twice intramuscularly.
This protocol focuses on the seroprevalence in primary care health care providers (PHCPs) in Belgium. PHCPs manage the vast majority of COVID-19 and other patients and therefore are essential to organize health care efficiently. Currently however, evidence is lacking on 1. how many PHCPs get infected or diseased in Belgium, 2. the rate at which this happens, 3. their clinical spectrum, 4. their risk factors, 5. the effectiveness of the measures to prevent this from happening and 6. the accuracy of the immunological serology-based point-of-care test in a primary care setting. This study will be set up as a prospective cohort study. All Belgian GPs in clinical practice will be invited to register online for participation in this national epidemiological study and will be asked to invite the other PHCPs in their practice to do the same. A model and demography-informed sample of registered GPs and other PHCPs will be selected. These participants will be asked at each testing point to perform a capillary blood sample antibody point of care test (OrientGene®) and complete an online questionnaire. All data analysis will be performed and reported after each relevant testing period and at the end of the study.
This study is a randomized, double-blinded, and placebo controlled phase Ⅰ clinical trial of the SARS-CoV-2 inactivated vaccine to evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of the experimental vaccine in healthy adults ⩾18 years.
