The role of COVID-19 fears and related behaviors in understanding daily adolescent health behaviors during the pandemic

Di |2021-11-13T04:00:00+01:00Novembre 13th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

We examined the prospective associations of COVID-19 fears and behavior, and daily physical activity and dysregulated eating. Adolescents (N = 31) aged 11-17 completed selected subscales of the Fear of Illness and Virus Evaluation and completed a 7-day health behavior diary. Greater fear of contamination was associated with lower daily physical activity. In contrast, greater COVID-19 precautionary behavior was associated with greater daily physical activity. COVID-19 fears and precautionary...

Internet of Things Based Contact Tracing Systems

Di |2021-11-13T03:00:00+01:00Novembre 13th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

The COVID-19 pandemic has significantly threatened the health and well-being of humanity. Contact tracing (CT) as an important non-pharmaceutical intervention is essential to containing the spread of such an infectious disease. However, current CT solutions are fragmented with limited use of sensing and computing technologies in a scalable framework. These issues can be well addressed with the use of the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. Therefore, we need to overview the principle,...

Headache as a Symptom of COVID-19: Narrative Review of 1-Year Research

Di |2021-11-12T08:00:00+01:00Novembre 12th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Headache is a common symptom of COVID-19 with emerging literature being published on the subject. Although it may seem unspecific, scientific evidence has allowed a better definition of this headache type, revealing relevant associations with other COVID-19 symptoms and prognoses. We therefore sought to highlight the most remarkable findings concerning headache secondary to COVID-19, specifically focusing on epidemiology, characteristics, pathophysiology, and treatments.

Hysteroscopy in COVID 19 pandemic: safety concerns

Di |2021-11-10T11:00:00+01:00Novembre 10th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic is a global health crisis that negatively impacts the health infrastructure by diverting resources to manage this infection. The long-term impact on the health of patients due to a lack of appropriate medical care to avoid COVID-19 infection is already visible in the mortality rates of the general population. The presence of the severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 in the female genital tract is not clear. Bubbles produced during...

Emotional Correlates of the COVID-19 Pandemic in Individuals With and Without Diabetes

Di |2021-11-06T11:00:00+01:00Novembre 6th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

CONCLUSIONS: In this naturalistic observational study, participants with type 2 diabetes reported more depression, lower resilience, and significantly more COVID-19 risk factors and medical comorbidities than participants without diabetes. Overall, our participants demonstrated worse depression and anxiety symptoms during compared with before the pandemic.

alpha-Ketoglutarate Inhibits Thrombosis and Inflammation by Prolyl Hydroxylase-2 Mediated Inactivation of Phospho-Akt

Di |2021-11-05T10:00:00+01:00Novembre 5th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus|

BACKGROUND: Phospho-Akt1 (pAkt1) undergoes prolyl hydroxylation at Pro125 and Pro313 by the prolyl hydroxylase-2 (PHD2) in a reaction decarboxylating α-ketoglutarate (αKG). We investigated whether the αKG supplementation could inhibit Akt-mediated activation of platelets and monocytes, in vitro as well as in vivo, by augmenting PHD2 activity.

The role of chest imaging in the diagnosis, management, and monitoring of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)

Di |2021-11-02T05:00:00+01:00Novembre 2nd, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus|

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic has posed a major public health crisis all over the world. The role of chest imaging, especially computed tomography (CT), has evolved during the pandemic paralleling the accumulation of scientific evidence. In the early stage of the pandemic, the performance of chest imaging for COVID-19 has widely been debated especially in the context of comparison to real-time reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction. Current evidence is against the use of...

Dysbiosis and structural disruption of the respiratory microbiota in COVID-19 patients with severe and fatal outcomes

Di |2021-10-30T15:00:00+02:00Ottobre 30th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

The COVID-19 outbreak has caused over three million deaths worldwide. Understanding the pathology of the disease and the factors that drive severe and fatal clinical outcomes is of special relevance. Studying the role of the respiratory microbiota in COVID-19 is especially important as the respiratory microbiota is known to interact with the host immune system, contributing to clinical outcomes in chronic and acute respiratory diseases. Here, we characterized the microbiota in the respiratory...

Photodynamic disinfection and its role in controlling infectious diseases

Di |2021-10-27T01:00:00+02:00Ottobre 27th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

Photodynamic therapy is witnessing a revival of its origins as a response to the rise of multi-drug resistant infections and the shortage of new classes of antibiotics. Photodynamic disinfection (PDDI) of microorganisms is making progresses in preclinical models and in clinical cases, and the perception of its role in the clinical armamentarium for the management of infectious diseases is changing. We review the positioning of PDDI from the perspective of its ability to respond to clinical...

Computational simulations to dissect the cell immune response dynamics for severe and critical cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection

Di |2021-10-05T13:00:00+02:00Ottobre 5th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

CONCLUSIONS: Our computational results highlight that a low viral clearance rate by CD8^(+) T cells could lead to the severity of the disease. This deregulated clearance suggests that it is necessary immunomodulatory strategies during the course of the infection to avoid critical states in COVID-19 patients.

It is seen that religious beliefs are influential especially in terms of family planning method preference and having abortions. This study was conducted to determine the attitudes of married Muslim women regarding family planning methods during the COVID-19 pandemic period. The descriptive and cross-sectional study was conducted with...

Survey of case study users during pandemic shift to remote instruction

Di |2021-08-11T10:00:00+02:00Agosto 11th, 2021|Categorie: Coronavirus, Coronavirus PubMed|

Before COVID-19, the use of case studies to learn science was well established in high school and postsecondary classrooms. Once the pandemic ensued, many faculty continued to use the method as a way to infuse elements of active learning remotely. The results of a survey taken by 600 faculty reveal how they accomplished this feat. Respondents to the survey found that the case method readily transferred to online learning. Most used a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous classrooms. Serious...
