A total of 93 patients were diagnosed with COVID-19 in Jilin Province over the study period. Cases included 54 males and 39 females, with a mean age of 44 years (range 7-85). The majority of patients were 20 to 59-years-old (80%, 74/93). There were 39 imported cases and 54 clustered cases. Imported cases were predominant from January 20 to 31, whereas clustered cases were predominant from February 1 to 10 and from February 11 to 23. ... read more
Since December 2019, a new type of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has emerged in Wuhan. And viral hepatitis is a major global health threat that affects the world. The purpose of our study is to reveal the clinical characteristics and outcomes of COVID-19 patients with pre-existing hepatitis virus infection. ... read more
Since the introduction of the first measures designed to tame the COVID-19 pandemic, several speculations have been made about their simultaneous effect on seasonal influenza. Although social distancing policies could be effective in mitigating influenza spread, the ultimate consequences remain unknown. ... read more
Health is defined as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being. Mental health is essential for maintaining good health and can be affected by diet and lifestyle. The purpose of this study is to assess the dietary habits and physical activity that affect mental well-being in Turkish adults in COVID-19 pandemic process. This cross-sectional study used a self-administrated semi-quantified food frequency questionnaire, Mediterranean Diet Adherence Scale (MEDAS), and Short Warwick Edinburgh Mental Well-Being Scale (SWEMWBS). ... read more
A observational study was performed between Feb 11, 2020 and Mar 23, 2020. Serum samples (n = 63) from eight patients intravenously vancomycin with or without nasal administration were collected. Drug concentrations were analyzed by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry. Vancomycin dosage was adjusted depending on drug concentration. A population PK model was developed using NONMEM software. Therapeutic effects, and vancomycin-related adverse events were monitored. ... read more
During the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic, N95 filtering face piece respirators (FFRs) were in short supply or not available. As a result, decontamination for reuse was authorized to deal with the temporary shortages under Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The use of vapor phase hydrogen peroxide (VPHP) is the method used in 13 of the EUAs issued. While the efficacy of the VPHP method has been demonstrated for a variety of organisms, it previously had not been ... read more
The development of COVID-19 vaccines represents a new hope to stabilize and reduce the progression of the pandemic. However, their use may not be free of serious side-effects, especially allergic reactions including anaphylaxis. This complication was observed after the first dose of both Moderna and Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines. Despite the relatively low incidence of these complications, they have to be taken seriously into account. In addition, an unexpected rise in reported COVID-19 cases due to the emergence of new SARS-CoV-2 variants, observed since December 2020, raises an issue of whether the existing COVID-19 vaccines will be able to protect against new SARS-CoV-19 variants, both those already existing ... read more
Chronic prostatitis is a common urological condition while 35-50% of men reported symptoms suggesting prostatitis during their lifetime. And chronic prostatitis presents extensive clinical manifestations including four main domains: Urogenital pain, lower urinary tract symptoms, psychological issues and sexual dysfunction while some patients are asymptomatic. As the novel coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is still rampant, a “tsunami of psychiatric illness” was predicted as its “collateral damage” because mental disorders were observed in many populations such as COVID-19 patients ... read more
In late December 2019, the strange sources of pneumonia situation were assigned in Wuhan/China. A pathogenic agent has been determined as a novel “enveloped RNA” betacorona virus, which named as sever acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 “SARS-CoV2”. That issued a disease named COVID-19 in human, the acute respiratory disease that remarkable as a second prelude of highly pathogenic ... read more
Two highly relevant studies related to SARS-CoV-2 and coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and supporting the use of melatonin to prevent and treat this serious infection were published recently. Campos-Codo and colleagues documented experimentally their claim that drugs which specifically target hypoxia inducible factor-1α (HIF-1α) would likely have great therapeutic value in treating COVID-19. The second report is a retrospective analysis based on the clinical experience at the Columbia University Irving Medical Center with the use of drugs to treat respiratory distress in COVID-19-infected patients who required endotracheal intubation ... read more
Subacute thyroiditis is an acute inflammatory disorder of the thyroid most commonly due to a viral infection. We hereby describe the case of an apparently healthy 36-year-old female presenting with subacute thyroiditis few weeks after a very mild presentation of COVID-19. The case highlights the utility of C- reactive Protein, Ultrasonography and Color Doppler in arriving at a diagnosis. ... read more

A natural component of fish oils, free fatty acids (FFA) inactivate enveloped viruses, some bacteria and fungi. We test the hypothesis that free fatty acids made by hydrolysis from fish oil inactivate SARS-CoV-2 in vitro. We also study an existing food additive containing 2% FFA in cod liver oil. ... read more
