  • Gastrointestinal tissue as a "new" target of pollution exposure. [Journal Article]
    IUBMB Life. 2021 Jul 21 [Online ahead of print]Pambianchi E, Pecorelli A, Valacchi G
  • Airborne pollution has become a leading cause of global death in industrialized cities and the exposure to environmental pollutants has been demonstrated to have adverse effects on human health. Among the pollutants, particulate matter (PM) is one of the most toxic and although its exposure has been more commonly correlated with respiratory diseases, gastrointestinal (GI) complications have also …
  • Structural insights into the distinctive RNA recognition and therapeutic potentials of RIG-I-like receptors. [Review]
    Med Res Rev. 2021 Jul 21 [Online ahead of print]Batool M, Kim MS, Choi S
  • RNA viruses, including the coronavirus, develop a unique strategy to evade the host immune response by interrupting the normal function of cytosolic retinoic acid-inducible gene-I (RIG-I)-like receptors (RLRs). RLRs rapidly detect atypical nucleic acids, thereby triggering the antiviral innate immune signaling cascade and subsequently activates the interferons transcription and induction of other…

The purpose of this special report is to present the commonalities in the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on nursing research across four countries, including the United States, South Korea, Japan, and Taiwan, and one region, that is, Hong Kong, and to make recommendations for f…
  • Impact of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Pandemic on Medical Use of Military Hospitals in Korea. [Journal Article]
    J Korean Med Sci. 2021 Jul 19; 36(28):e204.Yoon D, Kim KE, … Kim JH
  • CONCLUSIONS: During the COVID-19 pandemic, outpatient visits to military hospitals for respiratory and conjunctival infections and fractures decreased, whereas visits for allergic diseases did not change or increased only slightly. Admissions for pneumonia decreased significantly in 2020, while those for acute enteritis and fractures also decreased, but showed an increased proportion compared with previous years. These results are important because they illustrate the changing patterns in lifestyle as a result of public encouragement to adopt nonpharmaceutical interventions during the pandemic and their effect on medical needs for both infectious and noninfectious diseases in a select group.
  • Facemasks: A Looming Microplastic Crisis. [Journal Article]
    Int J Environ Res Public Health. 2021 Jul 01; 18(13)Dissanayake J, Torres-Quiroz C, … Park J
  • Single-use disposable facemasks have been used as a preventive measure against the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. However, many researchers have found evidence that these facemasks are being dumped into lakes, rivers, and open garbage dumps. Facemasks have the potential of releasing microplastic fibers into the environment; a phenomenon that has been poorly investigated. Moreover, microplastic fibers…
  • Variable effects of underlying diseases on the prognosis of patients with COVID-19. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2021; 16(7):e0254258.Choi YJ, Park JY, … Park HJ
  • Underlying diseases might be risk factors for poor prognosis in patients with coronavirus disease (COVID-19); however, we still do not know whether these diseases are independent factors affecting prognosis, which type of underlying diseases are risk factors, and which type of clinical outcomes are affected. We retrospectively reviewed cohort data from 7,590 de-identified patients with COVID-19 w…
  • Lessons Learned from Cutting-Edge Immunoinformatics on Next-Generation COVID-19 Vaccine Research. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pept Res Ther. 2021 Jul 10 [Online ahead of print]Chakraborty C, Sharma AR, … Lee SS
  • Presently, immunoinformatics and bioinformatics approaches are contributing actively to COVID-19 vaccine research. The first immunoinformatics-based vaccine construct against SARS-CoV-2 was published in February 2020. Following this, immunoinformatics and bioinformatics approaches have created a new direction in COVID-19 vaccine research. Several researchers have designed the next-generation COVI…
  • Weather indicators and improving air quality in association with COVID-19 pandemic in India. [Journal Article]
    Soft comput. 2021 Jul 13 [Online ahead of print]Chakrabortty R, Pal SC, … Das B
  • The COVID-19 pandemic enforced nationwide lockdown, which has restricted human activities from March 24 to May 3, 2020, resulted in an improved air quality across India. The present research investigates the connection between COVID-19 pandemic-imposed lockdown and its relation to the present air quality in India; besides, relationship between climate variables and daily new affected cases of Cor…
  • Impact of COVID-19 on Nuclear Medicine in Asia. [Review]
    Semin Nucl Med. 2021 Jun 16 [Online ahead of print]Bom HH, Pascual TN, … Al-Ibraheem A
  • Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) was first detected in China in late 2019 and rapidly spread to nearby Asian countries in early 2020. Outbreaks occurred differently in each country and affected nuclear medicine (NM) practice significantly even before the COVID-19 pandemic. The Asian NM community has worked together from the beginning of the pandemic. Fortunately, the Asian Regional Cooperative…
  • A multi-stage SEIR(D) model of the COVID-19 epidemic in Korea. [Journal Article]
    Ann Med. 2021 12; 53(1):1159-1169.Shin HY
  • This paper uses a SEIR(D) model to analyse the time-varying transmission dynamics of the COVID-19 epidemic in Korea throughout its multiple stages of development. This multi-stage estimation of the model parameters offers a better model fit compared to the whole period analysis and shows how the COVID-19's infection patterns change over time, primarily depending on the effectiveness of the public…
  • Neuroimaging Findings in Patients with COVID-19: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. [Journal Article]
    Korean J Radiol. 2021 Jul 01 [Online ahead of print]Kim PH, Kim M, … Kim SJ
  • CONCLUSIONS: Abnormal neuroimaging findings were occasionally observed in COVID-19 patients. Olfactory bulb abnormalities were the most commonly observed finding. Critically ill patients showed abnormal neuroimaging findings more frequently than the other patient groups. White matter abnormalities, ischemic infarctions, and encephalopathies were the common cerebral neuroimaging findings.
  • Design of Automatic Isolated Medical Waste Bin Cover for Drying Waste. [Journal Article]
    Surg Innov. 2021 Jul 16 [Online ahead of print]Lee J, Kwon S, … Kim KG
  • Background. The recent outbreak of COVID-19 has led to an increase in isolated medical waste, making the disposal of isolated medical waste a significant problem. There is the dedicated waste bin with four-sided locking-type at the top, causing contact during waste disposal. And it has infection possibility with high humidity. Purpose. In this article, we suggest automatic isolated medical waste …
  • Transmission risks of respiratory infectious diseases in various confined spaces: A meta-analysis for future pandemics. [Journal Article]
    Environ Res. 2021 Jul 12 [Online ahead of print]Moon J, Ryu BH
  • CONCLUSIONS: Based on the equation of the total number of contacts, the order of transmission according to the type of confined space was calculated. The calculated order was similar to the observed order in this study. The transmission risks in confined spaces can be lowered by reducing each component of the aforementioned equation. However, as seen in the data for SARS-CoV-2, the closure of one type of confined space could increase the population density in another confined space. The authority of infection control should consider this paradox. Appropriate quarantine measures targeted for specific types of confined spaces with a higher risk of transmission, school or workplace for general pathogens, and residential space/airplane for SARS-CoV-2 can reduce the transmission of respiratory infectious diseases.
  • Effective use of an advanced isolation unit during the COVID-19 pandemic: A retrospective cohort study. [Journal Article]
    J Microbiol Immunol Infect. 2021 Jul 02 [Online ahead of print]Park Y, Kwak SH, … Park MS
  • We described a strategy for preventing virus transmission within hospitals through screening and advanced isolation during the coronavirus pandemic. Patients were screened and admitted to the adult advanced isolation unit from February to April 2020. Our process minimized exposure without delaying proper treatment and prevented virus transmission within the hospital.
