  • Making trials part of good clinical care: lessons from the RECOVERY trial. [Journal Article]
    Future Healthc J. 2021 Jul; 8(2):e243-e250.Pessoa-Amorim G, Campbell M, … Haynes R
  • When COVID-19 hit the UK in early 2020, there were no known treatments for a condition that results in the death of around one in four patients hospitalised with this disease. Around the world, possible treatments were administered to huge numbers of patients, without any reliable assessments of safety and efficacy. The rapid generation of high-quality evidence was vital. RECOVERY is a streamline…
  • COVID-19 vaccination associated severe immune thrombocytopenia. [Journal Article]
    Exp Hematol Oncol. 2021 Jul 15; 10(1):42.Shah SRA, Dolkar S, … Vishnu P
  • CONCLUSIONS: COVID-19 vaccination induced ITP has been recently acknowledged. However, given very few cases and limited data, currently there are no guidelines for management of ITP caused by COVID-19 vaccine as well as vaccination of people with predisposing conditions.
  • Coronavirus disease 2019 in children. [Journal Article]
    Curr Opin Infect Dis. 2021 Jul 13 [Online ahead of print]Levy ER, Blumenthal J, Chiotos K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Children generally fare well with acute COVID-19 infection, though critical illness is possible. Future research should focus on clarifying the role of children in SARS-CoV-2 transmission and optimal prevention strategies, particularly in the school setting, as well as evaluating pediatric vaccine candidates.
  • Seraph-100 Hemoperfusion in SARS-CoV-2-Infected Patients Early in Critical Illness: A Case Series. [Case Reports]
    Blood Purif. 2021 Jul 14 [Online ahead of print]Rifkin BS, Stewart IJ
  • There is an urgent need for therapeutic interventions to alter the course of critically ill coronavirus disease 2019 (CO-VID-19) patients. We report our experience with the Seraph-100 Microbind Affinity Blood Filter (Seraph-100) in 4 patients with COVID-19 early in the course of their critical respiratory illnesses. Patients were diagnosed with COVID-19 and were admitted to intensive care with wo…
  • Transplant of SARS-CoV-2-infected Living Donor Liver: Case Report. [Journal Article]
    Transplant Direct. 2021 Aug; 7(8):e721.Nguyen MC, Lee EJ, … Philosophe B
  • Given the high community prevalence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), transplant programs will encounter SARS-CoV-2 infections in living donors or recipients in the perioperative period. There is limited data on SARS-CoV-2 viremia and organotropism beyond the respiratory tract to inform the risk of transplant transmission of SARS-CoV-2. We report a case of a living …
  • [Update 2021: COVID-19 from the Perspective of Haematology and Haemostaseology]. [Review]
    Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2021 Jul; 146(13-14):899-903.Spiekermann K, Subklewe M, … von Bergwelt-Baildon M
  • Infection with SARS-CoV-2 has a profound influence on the hematopoetic system that mediates clinical symptoms and mortality. Several studies have shown that treatment of the cytokine storm (CRS) with anti-inflammatory drugs like dexamethasone and tocilizumab can significantly improve survival. Systematic reviews confirm the safety of convalescent plasma administration and offer initial indication…
  • Intracerebral bleeding after janus-kinase inhibitor baricitinib for COVID-19. [Case Reports]
    Brain Hemorrhages. 2021 Jul 05 [Online ahead of print]Finsterer J, Scorza FA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Though ICH was time-linked to COVID-19, a causal relation could not be unequivocally established. Whether baricitinib increased the bleeding risk remains speculative. As long as causalities between ICH and baricitinib remain unproven, it should be given with caution and only under close blood pressure monitoring.
  • Coronavirus Disease 2019 Pneumonia and Acute Pancreatitis in a Young Girl. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2021 Jun; 13(6):e15374.Ehsan P, Haseeb M, … Singh R
  • Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 pneumonia and acute pancreatitis are rarely reported in patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We present the case of a 13-year-old girl who presented with nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain for the last two days, along with a cough for the last week. She had a fever and tachycardia. Lung examination revealed reduced breath sounds, and…
  • Clinical spectrum of neurological manifestations in pediatric Covid-19 illness: a case series. [Journal Article]
    J Trop Pediatr. 2021 Jul 10 [Online ahead of print]Khan A, Chakravarty A, … Ishani T
  • We describe a cohort of three patients with variable neurological presentations by SARS COV-2 infection. It includes one case each of Acute Cerebellitis, Acute encephalomyelitis and Arterial Ischemic Stroke. To the best of our knowledge we report the first pediatric case of acute cerebellitis due to SARS CoV-2 infection. All critically ill patients were treated with methylprednisolone pulse thera…
  • Disrupted Resolution Mechanisms Favor Altered Phagocyte Responses in Covid-19. [Journal Article]
    Circ Res. 2021 Jul 09 [Online ahead of print]Koenis DS, Beegun I, … Dalli J
  • Rationale: Resolution mechanisms are central in both the maintenance of homeostasis and the return to catabasis following tissue injury and/or infections. Amongst the pro-resolving mediators, the essential fatty acid-derived specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPM) govern immune responses to limit disease severity. Notably, little is known about the relationship between the expression and …
  • Central Retinal Vein Occlusion Presumably Associated with Lupus Anticoagulant Induced by SARSCoV-2. [Journal Article]

  • Efficacy of tocilizumab in COVID-19: A review of the current evidence. [Comment]
    Sci Prog. 2021 Jul-Sep; 104(3):368504211030372.Alam W, Bizri AR
  • As cases of coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) keep rising, reported deaths are increasing. Public health measures have been implemented with mixed efficacy. As vaccines are becoming more widely available and accessible globally, treating critically ill COVID-19 patients remains an issue with only dexamethasone found to be therapeutically effective to date. However, trials studying the efficacy of IL-6 …

  • A critical review on environmental presence of pharmaceutical drugs tested for the covid-19 treatment. [Review]
    Process Saf Environ Prot. 2021 Aug; 152:568-582.Nippes RP, Macruz PD, … Neves Olsen Scaliante MH
  • On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. The outbreak caused a worldwide impact, becoming a health threat to the general population and its professionals. To date, there are no specific antiviral treatments or vaccines for the COVID-19 infection, however, some drugs are being clinically tested. The use of these drugs on large scale raises great concern …
