    Abstract Using psychiatric signs or symptoms, symptom severity, diagnoses based on ICD-10, DSM-IV, or the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders (third edition), quality of life, and employment as outcome variables in this systematic review and meta-analysis, the researchers examined the psychiatric and neuropsychiatric (i.e., delirium) displays of SARS, MERS, and COVID-19. If SARS-CoV-2 follows a similar course to SARS-CoV or MERS, most patients will likely recover without experiencing a ...

    AbstractIt is important to understand how SARS-CoV-2 infects the cells so that medications and vaccines can be safely developed. This study looks at angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) and Ang 2 receptor-1 (AT1-R). Some treatments involving ACE2 and AT1-R are recombinant ACE2, ACE inhibitors, AR1-R blockers, Ang 1-7 peptides, and Janus kinase-signal transducer inhibitor (JAKinibs).BackgroundSARS-CoV-2 causes a wide range of symptoms and severity. It has a high infectivity and mortality rate. ...

    AbstractAbout 100,000 people in the United States are in need of a kidney transplant, and 400,000 people are on dialysis. This study aims to discover more about the ability to create a transplantable kidney graft. They decellularized a rat, pig, and human kidney in this study, and recellularized the rat kidney with epithelial and endothelial cells. The grafts made urine in the lab setting. Some grafts were transplanted into the rat, and also produced urine after transplantation.IntroductionDialy...

    Abstract   Attention-deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common psychiatric disorders in children and adults. Research shows that ADHD patients have symptoms of abnormal circadian rhythms. A person’s circadian rhythm is how their body changes as night and day pass. In other words, it is their sleep-wake cycle. A mutation in a protein involved in this cycle, per1b, causes zebrafish to display ADHD-like symptoms. These symptoms include hyperactivity, bad impulse control, decreas...

    Abstract The authors compared patients with borderline personality disorder (BPD) with a healthy control group about childhood traumatic life events, parental attitudes, family history of mental illness, and birth risk factors. BPD patients reported more severe traumatic events and childhood traumatic experiences (i.e., sexual abuse, violence, separation from parents). Attitudes towards parents were significantly more negative in BPD patients. BPD patients also reported higher rates of mental il...

    Abstract  Minority ethnic and black individuals appear to be disproportionately affected by low vitamin D levels and COVID-19 infection. This study aims to establish if blood levels of vitamin D are associated with COVID-19 infection risk. UK biobank recruited 502,624 participants aged 37-73 years. Exposure data and blood vitamin D levels were acquired. The data was then cross referenced. Complete data was available for 348,598 UK Biobank participants. Only 449 participants had confirmed COVID-1...

    AbstractDiabetes patients seem to have different clinical outcomes based on their race. Understanding how cultural and racial factors affect these patients can bring about more efficient and humane care. It is possible that factors like food/housing insecurity, perceived discrimination, and mental health are not taken into consideration when caring for these patients. More research is necessary to determine how these conditions affect these patients in a clinical setting.Burden of Type 2 Diabete...

    AbstractScientists consider the process of long-term potentiation (LTP) as one of the main things controlling memory formation. LTP takes two neurons that fire together and strengthens the relationship between them. Evidence shows that transcription factor CREB causes changes in the cell. This makes that neuron’s synapse more reactive. It is unclear if CREB and LTP happen together or are separate processes.IntroductionThe Role of the Transcription Factor CREB in Memory           Interest in CREB...

    AbstractIt is important to understand how non-medical interventions impact COVID-19 transmission, especially to plan future measures to combat the ongoing pandemic. In this study, the researchers used data from American counties of reported infections and deaths along with data about how people move from place to place and a mathematical transmission model. Combining these three things, the researchers quantified changes in COVID-19 transmission in the U.S from March 2020 to May 2020. They found...

    SummaryWorking memory is the immediate memory of outside information, such as listening to someone speak or performing a task. It is a very conscious form of memory and is characterized by non-stop neuron spikes. Researchers analyzed the local field potential in the prefrontal cortex in monkeys’ brains during a task. Gamma and beta oscillations are types of brain waves. Both of these waves appeared during the tasks in neurons that were encoding or decoding memory to do the task. They showed up a...
