Can the AC filter in your home, office or local mall protect you from Covid-19? – FOX10 News

§ July 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Can the AC filter in your home, office or local mall protect you from Covid-19? – FOX10 News

When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last week that malls in New York could not reopen until they installed high-efficiency particulate air filters capable of trapping the virus that causes Covid-19, Harvard environmental health researcher Joseph Gardner Allen was thrilled.

"I've been writing consistently since early February about how healthy buildings should be the first line of defense against the novel coronavirus," said Allen, who directs the Healthy Buildings program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

"I'm really grateful that we have a leader in the country -- somewhere -- who was finally talking about healthy buildings, ventilation and filtration," Allen said. "That hasn't happened before. It just hasn't happened."

Allen was one of 239 scientists who wrote an open letter to the World Health Organization, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health agencies, asking for a change in their guidance to the public on how the novel coronavirus, or SARS-CoV-2, can spread.

Current guidance only focuses on "hand washing, maintaining social distancing, and droplet precautions," according to the letter, published Monday in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

The health agencies are ignoring the tiny droplets of virus that sputter and spray from our mouths, become aerosolized and then float away into the air, the scientists said, as a likely means of transmission.

"They don't want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid," co-author Donald Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland, told CNN in a prior interview.

"The best vaccine against fear is knowledge and empowering people to take care of themselves," Milton said. "Why wearing a mask is important is because it blocks the aerosols at their source, when it is easy to block them."

Because the CDC and WHO "have been so slow to acknowledge aerosol transmission is happening, buildings are not putting in appropriate control measures," said Allen, who has focused his career on "sick buildings" and how they affect worker performance and productivity.

"The prudent and pragmatic approach is to acknowledge that airborne transmission is happening and put in the controls. If we find out in five years, that airborne was 5% of transmission, then OK," Allen said. "But what if it's 20% or 30% and we failed to acknowledge it? That's a problem."

During a press briefing on Tuesday, WHO Technical Lead for Infection Prevention and Control, Dr. Benedetta Alleganzi, said the agency has discussed and collaborated with many of the scientists who signed the letter.

"We acknowledge that there is emerging evidence in this field," Alleganzi said. "Therefore we believe that we have to be open to this evidence and understand its implications regarding the modes of transmission and also regarding the precautions that need to be taken."

Alleganzi also emphasized that emerging evidence is not yet conclusive.

"The possibility of airborne transmission in public settings, especially in very specific conditions crowded, closed, poorly ventilated settings ... cannot be ruled out," she said. "However, the evidence needs to be gathered and interpreted."

Currently the CDC says "Covid-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person," through "respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks."

"I subscribe to the CDC opinion that the vast majority of transmission occurs within 3 to 6 feet from the infected person. That's the highway where all the traffic is -- where the the vast majority of this virus is transmitted," said infectious disease expert Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville.

"Are there side streets where it can become an aerosol and spread into the air? Yes," Schaffner said, adding that isn't likely to create a significant transmission route. If future public health investigations find these "aerosol transmission events are more common than currently thought," that could change priorities.

"But I don't think we need to change all the AC units in the US and around the world based on side street traffic," Schaffner added. "We want to attack the high traffic route by the big three -- masks, social distancing and avoiding large groups. Then we'll get virus transmission down."

A mid-March study found SARS-CoV-2 can survive in microscopic respiratory droplets about 2.5 microns in diameter and smaller, which can remain airborne and viable for up to three hours or more.

In early May, Harvard's Allen and Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, published a paper that rounded up research focusing on the role of smaller airborne particles in the spread of the novel coronavirus.

"It is impossible for someone to release 'large droplets' (>5 microns) without also releasing smaller ones. Thus, transmission that is purported to occur via the spray of large droplets from a cough could in fact be occurring through inhalation of much smaller droplets at close range," the paper said.

Marr, who made a groundbreaking discovery that flu virus could float in the air in microscopic droplets for an hour or more, likes to use cigarettes as a way to explain how viruses spread.

"The smaller microscopic ones that we call aerosols behave kind of like cigarette smoke. So they're going to be more concentrated closer to the smoker, the person who might be infected. As you get farther away, your exposure would be much less," Marr said.

Will masks protect against those microscopic floating droplets? Top-rated N95 and surgical-grade masks will, and scientists are scrambling to study and tweak the effectiveness of homemade masks.

"For most cloth face masks, there is no inner filtration layer that traps harmful particles," said Sara Greenstein, president and CEO of Lydall, one of the companies who signed with the U.S. Department of Defense to produce filtration media for N95 masks.

"Although wearing a cloth face mask is better than nothing, it is no substitute for an N95 or surgical mask, which are precisely engineered, highly technical products," Greenstein said.

Even when medical-grade masks are widespread, ventilation systems with highly effective filters are another key way to filter droplets from the air, Allen said.

In his edict to New York mall owners, Cuomo was talking about HEPA filters, which have the highest MERV ratings, between 17 and 20.

What's MERV? It stands for "minimum efficiency reporting value," and it's how filters are rated in their ability to trap tiny particles. The MERV ratings go from one to 20: Filters with higher MERV ratings are more effective than filters with lower ratings.

At the highest end, HEPA filters are used by hospitals to create sterile rooms for surgeries and to control infectious diseases, and are able to remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and other airborne particles with a size as small as 0.3 microns. For comparison, Covid-19 is thought to be between 0.06 to 1.4 microns.

"Filters are rated at their worst performance, so 99.97% is the worst it will do," Allen said. "And that's rated for a particle size of 0.3 microns, but smaller and larger it actually does better. So the point is that it's capturing nearly all particles."

Unfortunately, most businesses and home owners may find it difficult to retrofit their existing system to accommodate a HEPA filter, or any filter higher than the rating recommended by the system's manufacturer.

Doing so can actually impair the system's performance: Smaller pores in HEPA air filters make it more difficult for it to push air. Using denser filters can affect the efficiency of the unit and strain the fan, while decreasing indoor air quality -- the opposite of what you desire.

"HEPA filtration is not always going to be feasible or practical," Allen said. "But there are other filters that can do the job. What is recommended now by the standard setting body for HVAC is a MERV 13 filter."

High-efficiency filters in the 13-to-16 MERV range are often used in hospitals, nursing homes, research labs and other places where filtration is important.

"If you're an owner of a home, building or mall, you want to have someone to assess your system and install the largest MERV number filter the system can reliably handle without dropping the volume of air that runs through it," advised Erin Bromage, an associate professor of biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

"In addition, virtually all modern air conditioning systems in commercial buildings have a process called makeup air where they bring in air from outside and condition it and bring it inside," said Bromage, a CNN contributor who wrote a blog post in early May -- "The Risks -- Know Them -- Avoid Them," that got over 13 million views in one week.

Building owners should be looking at increasing the amount of makeup air that is brought inside by opening dampers, Bromage suggested.

"It's worse in regards to energy, but the more outside air we bring in, the more dilution of the virus we have and then the safer you are," Bromage said, adding that it's important to also monitor humidity levels."

"There's sort of a 'Goldilocks' zone for the coronavirus, between 40 and 60% humidity, where it doesn't survive for very long," Bromage said.

Below 40% humidity, he said, the infected droplets hang in the air longer, thus providing the opportunity to travel farther to infect people.

"Above 60%, the droplets lose moisture more slowly, and therefore are heavier and more vulnerable to gravity," Bromage said, "which sounds like a great thing."

"But it actually drops onto surfaces much faster and being wet actually keeps the virus alive and infectious for longer," he added.

First, focus on following public health recommendations: Wear masks when you go outside, stay away from large crowds and 6 feet from anyone not in your "quarantine bubble," wash your hands with soap frequently, keep your hands away from your face, and try to only go to outdoor locations with excellent air circulation and filtration.

If you have the resources, there are also personal HEPA air purifiers on the market, designed to clean a standard room of a home. Some even come with humidifiers that will measure the air and keep the room between 40% and 60%, while others incorporate UV light technology designed to kill stray particles.

"Properly balanced UV light will inactivate viruses and bacteria in the air, which just adds an extra layer to the protection coming from the air purifier," Bromage said.

Costs range from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars, but don't be fooled by the price tag: You're looking for a machine with a HEPA filter designed for the size of your room -- so measure carefully. Having too small of a machine in a large room won't clean the air -- while having a large system in a small room is a waste of money.

Finally, know that HEPA filters can be pricey and will need frequent attention to keep them in top performance.

Many point to the cost of filters and the expense of retrofitting buildings and say it may not be worth it. That's not always the case, Allen said.

"It's a total misnomer that healthy building strategies and higher ventilation rates and filtration are expensive strategies," Allen said. "When people know and understand how it's transmitted, then they're empowered to make better decisions.

"And that includes right in your home: You'd have people over, open up those windows; you're in your car with somebody else, roll down the window, a few inches," Allen said.

"No one strategy alone is going to work. But if we layer enough of these on top of each other, we can significantly reduce risks."

CNN's Shelby Erdman contributed to this story. Correction: An earlier version of this story miscounted the authors of the letter to the WHO and CDC. Clarification: An earlier version of this story included an explanation from Erin Bromage about moisture levels in droplets that he clarified with a new quote.

Masks: To wear or not to wear? – South Alabamian

§ July 8th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Masks: To wear or not to wear? – South Alabamian

I had the good fortune of nearly losing a friend to coronavirus.

My friend went through the full treatment, ICU, ventilator, everything, and lived to tell the tale.

While he fought, his friends and loved ones hoped, suffered and prayed. Many of us also vowed to take COVID- 19 seriously. If it could hit him so hard, nothing was stopping it from tiptoeing through our lives like a horde of hippos in tutus.

Our family has taken the conservative approach of wearing masks and social distancing whenever necessary. It goes back to basic germ theory thats been around for hundreds of years.

Our ancestors discovered that many of their illnesses were caused by microscopic organisms floating in the air. My mask captures tiny droplets of water from my nose and mouth that would have otherwise escaped. Your mask does the same, so we keep potential illnesses to ourselves.

Thats the theory behind doctors and nurses wearing masks all day in operating rooms.

Since COVID- 19 hit the scene, Ive heard a lot about PPE, which is personal protective equipment. I thought it was limited to medicine, but then I called a friend who is a veteran with decades of military service.

Hes more worried about this illness than any time spent in a war zone. His health issues combined with COVID could be deadly, and hes concerned that his fellow citizens arent taking masks as seriously as they should.

He was at a gathering of farflung family, and everyone was sitting away from each other and wearing masks. Then a relative came in without a mask and wanted to hug my friends young niece.

When the others stopped him, the newcomer said, If I get it, I get it.

Its a common sentiment. Ive heard it from a bunch of people on Facebook, Twitter and TV.

When I was in Afghanistan, I never took off my PPE, waved my hands and said, If the Taliban gets me, they get me, my friend said.

I like to steer clear of politics when Im writing. Its not because I dont have strong opinions; its because Ive learned a thing or two about human nature over the years.

Peoples politics are deeply held parts of their identities. Thats true for me and, Ive found, most everybody else.

If I were to attack your favorite politician, you wouldnt consider the logic of my argument because you would be too invested in your argument.

Im not picking on you. I would feel the same way. If you want me to pay attention, dont slam my deeply held beliefs.

But our identities are complex.

I know a lot of people who have different views on politics than I have, but theyre still my friends. In fact, anytime I actually do reconsider my political views is because of them: Theyre good people, so how come theyre so wrong? Is it me?

Usually, its them, but I digress.

The wearing of a mask and social distancing is not about politics. Its about protecting friends and family. Its about protecting teammates and fellow citizens. And, really, its about protecting ourselves.

My friend who had COVID- 19 didnt fight his way through the ICU so he could be an object lesson. He simply did what it took to survive.

My friend who served in Afghanistan didnt wear PPE to teach us any lessons either.

Still, wed be wise to learn from them both during these so very strange days.

Hes an English teacher living in Tupelo, Mississippi.

BREAKING: Earl Campbell, Gary Baxter’s Project Rose go to court with TSJH, Baylor, Scott and White over dueling claims of breach of contract – Tyler…

§ July 8th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Medicine Comments Off on BREAKING: Earl Campbell, Gary Baxter’s Project Rose go to court with TSJH, Baylor, Scott and White over dueling claims of breach of contract – Tyler…

A lawsuit on behalf of the Tyler Rose and his partner NFL alum Gary Baxter alleges they haven't been paid "a red cent" for their work creating the Project Rose Research Institute for Sports Science.

TSJH's lawsuit claims Baxter and Earl Campbell did "little to actually build a sports science and medicine facility." The document alleges the institute hosted a few programs, put up a website, got some equipment and made occasional press statements about its "purported charitable endeavors."

An attorney for Campbell and Baxter said their organizations were fraudulently misled and used to promote and bolster the reputation of the hospital, but enjoyed no share of the profits when it was sold.

The counter lawsuit stated that "'When TSJH sucked everything it could from the relationship with the counter plaintiffs, and used Baxter and Campbell, to sell 50.25% of the hospital for in excess of $81,000,000, Tony Wahl told Mr. Baxter that "the hospital is giving notice to terminate the Project Rose license agreement as well as the consulting and lease agreement. Sometimes, despite everyone's best efforts, agreements like this do not work out,' and attempted to end the relationship without paying counter plaintiffs and Mr. Campbell and Mr. Baxter a red cent for all of their trade secrets, expertise, service and effort."

The Tyler Morning Telegraph has obtained court documents in which Texas Spine and Joint Hospital claims ProjectRose did not pay $200,000 in rent, and attempted to terminate the lease in August 2019. The hospital alleges that after paying the back rent, Project Rose attempted to invoice the hospital more than $4 million for 349 hours of consulting services per month dating from Aug. 2017 through Aug. 2019, which the hospital said are untrue, excessive and presented in contravention of their contractual obligations. The lawsuit states that these consulting invoices constituted a contract-violating demand.

When the hospital refused to pay Project Rose's demand, TSJH claims Baxter threatened to have a press conference announcing a lawsuit against TSJH but he never followed through.

The Project Rose Research Institute for Sports Science is a sports science institute located on the second floor of the Tyler hospital, unveiled in 2017 as a partnership between Campbell, Baxter and Texas Spine and Joint Hospital before the hospital sold a majority stake to Baylor, Scott and White. Three contracts were entered the first was a lease agreement between TSJH and Project Rose, the second a license agreement between PR Goal Line, owned by Baxter and Campbell, and TSJH and the third a consultant agreement between Project Rose and TSJH, at an hourly rate of $500.

The goal of the facility was to provide sports medicine research to create safer playing environments for athletes from grade school to professional sports.

That lawsuit was filed by the hospital on Feb. 24. A counter suit was filed on behalf of Project Rose and Touchdown Interception on April 17, adding Baylor, Scott and White as third party defendants. Baylor Scott and White Health is handling its filings separately from TSJH.

The counter suit states Project Rose MSO was persuaded to make a verbal agreement to postpone invoices and TSJH would postpone the rental obligations, at the request of TSJH CEO Tony Wahl. The document states that upon notification of the alleged unpaid rent, Project Rose paid the full $197,000 within 30 days and remains current on its rental obligations, even though TSJH removed their signage from the facility.

Parties named as defendants by TSJH include Project Rose, 62 Roses MSO and Touchdown Interception, LLC, which are run by Baxter and Campbell.

In the counter-claim, Project Rose's attorney Wade McClure states that Campbell and Baxter passed on other offers to partner with other hospitals, and leveraged their sports experience, trade secrets, intellectual property and time and effort to create a state of the art athlete focused sports medicine facility, but TSJH attempted to continually change the terms of their agreement, without paying Campbell and Baxter "a red cent." McClure and co-counsel Jennifer Ainsworth, of the Tyler based Wilson Robertson & Cornelius firm, represent the various companies headed by Baxter and Campbell.

The countersuit states that under the agreement with TSJH, Touchdown Interception was entitled to 50% of the profits from the facility after TSJH recouped its capital contribution up to the amount of $1.3 million.

McClure states that his clients repeatedly tried to ascertain whether the facility was profitable and were not given a full disclosure.

McClure said they have requested a full accounting of the facility to determine its profits and what his clients are owed. He said the legal actions include a cause for consulting fees for Project Rose MSO and a separate cause for the profit sharing agreement for the sports clinic.

Wesley Hill, one of Texas Spine and Joint Hospital's attorneys, supported the claims made in the original lawsuit filing.

"We dispute Project Rose's claims and our position is made clear in the lawsuit, which is why we brought it to the court," Hill said.

The countersuit states that TSJH used the product and concept of Project Rose in competition without paying for the product and concepts, allowing the hospital to benefit from a special advantage.

"We are just seeking to receive compensation for the substantial work, services and commitment to the facility," McClure said. "And basically the hospital has chosen not to pay anything for all the services, all the efforts, all the good will my clients have put in to building the facility."

The countersuit accuses Baylor, Scott and White of theft of trade secrets and intellectual property, fraudulent inducement and fraud, tortious interference with existing contract, unfair competition, common law misappropriation, promissory estoppel and detrimental reliance, quantum meruit (a legal term for recovering value of services), unjust enrichment, civil conspiracy, aiding and abetting and knowingly participating in TSJH's breaches of fiduciary duties and other wrongful conduct.

On June 26, the Baylor Scott and White Hospital system filed a motion to dismiss under the Texas anti-SLAAP statute, denying all claims. McClure said the motion has effectively put the lawsuit in a stay until that is resolved, which can take up to 120 days. Anti-SLAPP, or anti-Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation, laws are designed to provide for early dismissal of meritless lawsuits filed against people for the exercise of First Amendment rights, according to medialaw.org.

The Tyler Paper has reached out to the hospital system's attorney for comment.

Music of the future: Teleportation helps create duet between human, quantum computer – Study Finds

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on Music of the future: Teleportation helps create duet between human, quantum computer – Study Finds

A quantum computer. ( Bartek - stock.adobe.com)

PLYMOUTH, England Have we finally reached that seemingly far off future described in countless works of science fiction? While flying cars and casual space suits arent the norm just yet, its clear that modern technology is rapidly advancing.A fascinating new study shows that quantum teleportation can be used to facilitate communication between a human and a quantum computer.

So, what did the team at Plymouth University decide to do first with this groundbreaking discovery? Create a piece of performance art, of course.

Referred to as a high-tech jam session, researchers combined both human and quantum computer generated noises to create a piece of music. They believe this approach can be used to produce unique performance pieces.

The world is racing to build the first practical and powerful quantum computers, and whoever succeeds first will have a scientific and military advantage because of the extreme computing power of these machines. This research shows for the first time that this much-vaunted advantage can also be helpful in the world of making and performing music. No other work has shown this previously in the arts, and it demonstrates that quantum power is something everyone can appreciate and enjoy, says Dr. Alexis Kirke, Senior Research Fellow in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research at the University of Plymouth.

To be clear, were not talking about the version of teleportation seen in Star Trek or Dragon Ball Z.The studys authors usequantumteleportation, which means instantly transmitting quantum data over large distances. For example, quantum teleportation has been used in the past to send data from Earth to a satellite over 870 miles away.

How is any of this possible? Dr. Kirke uses a system known asMIq (Multi-Agent Interactive qgMuse)whichinvolves an IBM computer following and executing a complex methodology known as Grovers Algorithm.Named after its discoverer, Lov Grover, who developed it in 1996 at Bell Labs, Grovers Algorithm is the second most important quantum algorithm.

Grovers Algorithm is far faster than any traditional algorithm, which was very important for this project because there is no way to transport quantum data without quantum teleportation, according to Dr. Kirke.

So, while Dr. Kirke played a song from Game of Thrones on a piano, a 14-qubit IBM computer rapidly composed accompanying music for the tune.

At the moment there are limits to how complex a real-time computer jamming system can be. The number of musical rules that a human improviser knows intuitively would simply take a computer too long to solve to real-time music. Shortcuts have been invented to speed up this process in rule-based AI music, but using the quantum computer speed-up has not be tried before. So while teleportation cannot move information faster than the speed of light, if remote collaborators want to connect up their quantum computers which they are using to increase the speed of their musical AIs it is 100% necessary. Quantum information simply cannot be transmitted using normal digital transmission systems, Dr. Kirke concludes.

The study is published in the Journal of New Music Research.

What the end of Moores Law will mean for the tech world and consumers – MyNorthwest.com

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Quantum Computer Comments Off on What the end of Moores Law will mean for the tech world and consumers – MyNorthwest.com

Are we ready for the end of Moores Law? Its something that could have huge ramifications in the tech world, and yet we dont seem to be doing much about it at the moment. So says David Rotman, editor of MIT Technology Review, who joined Seattles Morning News to explain what it is and why it matters.

It was in 1965 that Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors you could squeeze into a computer chip would double every year. And then later it became every two years. So its a prediction that you would get more powerful, faster computer chips every two years, he said.

When he predicted it, there were about 50 transistors on a chip. By 1975 it was 65,000 and now its 50 billion transistors on a chip, and thats why we have such powerful devices, Rotman explained. When you think about the progress, almost everything we use, our devices from smartphones to cloud computing to artificial intelligence all depends on the progress. The iPhone is 100,000 times more powerful in computing power than the computer on the Apollo spacecraft that went to the moon.

The conversation that happens when you get a contact tracing call

So what does it mean if this pace of progress doesnt continue? Weve come to expect the level of ease of use and immediacy that you get from an iPhone with its billions of transistors. Is there a change around the corner?

We know Moores Law will end sooner or later, and no one knows quite when, but it will end (likely within the next 10 years). So what happens next? No one really knows what comes next. And maybe more importantly, no one is really working on whats the next big technology, he said.

SCOTUS decision on scholarships to religious schools not applicable to WA

Thats what I found a bit troubling at the end of the article is that were not spending the money and the resources to find the next great technology that will drive progress through the next 50 years.

One of the possibilities is the advent of quantum computing because there youre using particles that presumably are as small as nature permits.

Quantum computing is, for now, very specialized. Its amazing what it may be able to do, but its not a generalized computing technology, he said.

Why do we not appear to be investing in the next big technology? Partially because it might require tossing out the way we do things now.

It would take you to completely throw out the rule book, rethink everything. And thats why Im thinking about what comes after Moores Law, it will end over the next 10 to 20 years, and finding a different approach will mean rethinking everything. And thats going to take a long time its going to take a lot of smart people thinking hard about it, he said.

Many of the things that we really are interested in these days, for example artificial intelligence the idea of self-driving cars or all these things, robotics that think for themselves these amazing technologies are really computational intensive, Rotman said. They require really powerful computers and so we just have an endless appetite for computational power.

New nanomedicines for mRNA therapeutics in breast cancer and heart failure – Mirage News

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on New nanomedicines for mRNA therapeutics in breast cancer and heart failure – Mirage News

TAU researcher Prof. Dan Peer, from the school of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, is one of 11 partners in the international project EXPERT that has been awarded a total of 14.9 million EUR from the EU Horizon 2020. The project is working to find efficient ways to deliver protein coding mRNA by using various nanoparticles for the treatment of breast cancer and myocardial infarction, which are two of the most pressing health challenges in European society today.

Prof. Dan Peer, Director, Laboratory of Precision NanoMedicine, School of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences and Department of Materials Sciences and Engineering, Iby and Aladar Fleischman Faculty of Engineering, Tel Aviv University Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and Tel Aviv University Cancer Biology Research Center.

It is about developing mRNA therapy for the treatment of breast cancer. Much of it involves testing different methods to improve the delivery of mRNA to cells in vivo. These methods are fundamentally based either on lipid nanoparticles (LNPs), biological nanoparticles called exosomes, or cell penetrating peptides (CPPs). In addition to this, we intend to analyze what these nanoparticles bind to in biological fluids in order to better understand what drives uptake in specific cells types.

Our lab was the first to show systemic, cell specific delivery of mRNA molecules that express therapeutic proteins in designated cells. We will further develop our ASSET platform for cell specific targeting of lipid nanoparticles to achieve improved delivery of therapeutic mRNAs and optimize formulations that enable systemic administration in different preclinical models. Part of the work will also consist of understanding how nanoparticle surfaces bind to host factors in blood and how this can affect the uptake of nanoparticles.

We will now see how these delivery methods work side by side in cell culture and animal models. The hope is then to be able to deliver an mRNA cocktail with one of the aforementioned vectors for the treatment of triple-negative breast cancer. In parallel, these vectors will also be evaluated for delivery of VEGF mRNA in the treatment of myocardial infarction.

Can the AC filter in your home, office or local mall protect you from COVID-19? – WAPT Jackson

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Can the AC filter in your home, office or local mall protect you from COVID-19? – WAPT Jackson

When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last week that malls in New York could not reopen until they installed high-efficiency particulate air filters capable of trapping the virus that causes COVID-19, Harvard environmental health researcher Joseph Gardner Allen was thrilled."I've been writing consistently since early February about how healthy buildings should be the first line of defense against the novel coronavirus," said Allen, who directs the Healthy Buildings program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health."I'm really grateful that we have a leader in the country somewhere who was finally talking about healthy buildings, ventilation and filtration," Allen said. "That hasn't happened before. It just hasn't happened."A different priorityAllen was one of 241 scientists who wrote an open letter to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health agencies, asking for a change in their guidance to the public on how the coronavirus can spread.Current guidance only focuses on "hand washing, maintaining social distancing, and droplet precautions," the letter, published Monday in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, said. The health agencies are ignoring the tiny droplets of virus that sputter and spray from our mouths, become aerosolized and then float away into the air, the scientists said, as a likely means of transmission."They don't want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid," co-author Donald Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland, told CNN in a prior interview."The best vaccine against fear is knowledge and empowering people to take care of themselves," Milton said. "Why wearing a mask is important is because it blocks the aerosols at their source, when it is easy to block them."Because the CDC and WHO "have been so slow to acknowledge aerosol transmission is happening, buildings are not putting in appropriate control measures," said Allen, who has focused his career on "sick buildings" and how they affect worker performance and productivity."The prudent and pragmatic approach is to acknowledge that airborne transmission is happening and put in the controls. If we find out in five years, that airborne was 5% of transmission, then OK," Allen said. "But what if it's 20% or 30% and we failed to acknowledge it? That's a problem."The CDC says "COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person," through "respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.""I subscribe to the CDC opinion that the vast majority of transmission occurs within 3 to 6 feet from the infected person. That's the highway where all the traffic is where the vast majority of this virus is transmitted," said infectious disease expert Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville."Are there side streets where it can become an aerosol and spread into the air? Yes," Schaffner said, adding that isn't likely to create a significant transmission route. If future public health investigations find these "aerosol transmission events are more common than currently thought," that could change priorities."But I don't think we need to change all the AC units in the U.S. and around the world based on side street traffic," Schaffner added. "We want to attack the high traffic route by the big three masks, social distancing and avoiding large groups. Then we'll get virus transmission down."A role for aerosols?A mid-March study found COVID-19 can survive in microscopic respiratory droplets about 2.5 microns in diameter and smaller, which can remain airborne and viable for up to three hours or more.In early May, Harvard's Allen and Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, published a paper that rounded up research focusing on the role of smaller airborne particles in the spread of the novel coronavirus."It is impossible for someone to release 'large droplets' without also releasing smaller ones. Thus, transmission that is purported to occur via the spray of large droplets from a cough could in fact be occurring through inhalation of much smaller droplets at close range," the paper said.Marr, who made a groundbreaking discovery that a flu virus could float in the air in microscopic droplets for an hour or more, likes to use cigarettes as a way to explain how viruses spread."The smaller microscopic ones that we call aerosols behave kind of like cigarette smoke. So they're going to be more concentrated closer to the smoker, the person who might be infected. As you get farther away, your exposure would be much less," Marr said.Will masks protect against those microscopic floating droplets? Top-rated N95 and surgical-grade masks will, and scientists are scrambling to study and tweak the effectiveness of homemade masks."For most cloth face masks, there is no inner filtration layer that traps harmful particles," said Sara Greenstein, president and CEO of Lydall, one of the companies who signed with the Department of Defense to produce filtration media for N95 masks."Although wearing a cloth face mask is better than nothing, it is no substitute for an N95 or surgical mask, which are precisely engineered, highly technical products," Greenstein said.Even when medical-grade masks are widespread, ventilation systems with highly effective filters are another key way to filter droplets from the air, Allen said.MERV ratingsIn his edict to New York mall owners, Cuomo was talking about HEPA filters, which have the highest MERV ratings, between 17 and 20.What's MERV? It stands for "minimum efficiency reporting value," and it's how filters are rated in their ability to trap tiny particles. The MERV ratings go from one to 20: Filters with higher MERV ratings are more effective than filters with lower ratings.At the highest end, HEPA filters are used by hospitals to create sterile rooms for surgeries and to control infectious diseases, and are able to remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and other airborne particles with a size as small as 0.3 microns. For comparison, COVID-19 is thought to be between 0.06 to 1.4 microns."Filters are rated at their worst performance, so 99.97% is the worst it will do," Allen said. "And that's rated for a particle size of 0.3 microns, but smaller and larger it actually does better. So the point is that it's capturing nearly all particles."Unfortunately, most businesses and home owners may find it difficult to retrofit their existing system to accommodate a HEPA filter, or any filter higher than the rating recommended by the system's manufacturer.Doing so can actually impair the system's performance: Smaller pores in HEPA air filters make it more difficult for it to push air. Using denser filters can affect the efficiency of the unit and strain the fan, while decreasing indoor air quality the opposite of what you desire."HEPA filtration is not always going to be feasible or practical," Allen said. "But there are other filters that can do the job. What is recommended now by the standard setting body for HVAC is a MERV 13 filter."High-efficiency filters in the 13-to-16 MERV range are often used in hospitals, nursing homes, research labs and other places where filtration is important."If you're an owner of a home, building or mall, you want to have someone to assess your system and install the largest MERV number filter the system can reliably handle without dropping the volume of air that runs through it," advised Erin Bromage, an associate professor of biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth."In addition, virtually all modern air conditioning systems in commercial buildings have a process called makeup air where they bring in air from outside and condition it and bring it inside," said Bromage, a CNN contributor who wrote a blog post in early May "The Risks Know Them Avoid Them," that got over 13 million views in one week.Building owners should be looking at increasing the amount of makeup air that is brought inside by opening dampers, Bromage suggested."It's worse in regards to energy, but the more outside air we bring in, the more dilution of the virus we have and then the safer you are," Bromage said, adding that it's important to also monitor humidity levels.""There's sort of a 'Goldilocks' zone for the coronavirus, between 40 and 60% humidity, where it doesn't survive for very long," Bromage said.Below 40% humidity, he said, the infected droplets hang in the air longer, thus providing the opportunity to travel farther to infect people. Above 60%, the droplet absorbs more moisture, growing heavier and more vulnerable to gravity, "which sounds like a great thing," Bromage said."But it actually drops onto surfaces much faster and being wet actually keeps the virus alive and infectious for longer," he added.What to do?First, focus on following public health recommendations: Wear masks when you go outside, stay away from large crowds and 6 feet from anyone not in your "quarantine bubble," wash your hands with soap frequently, keep your hands away from your face, and try to only go to outdoor locations with excellent air circulation and filtration.If you have the resources, there are also personal HEPA air purifiers on the market, designed to clean a standard room of a home. Some even come with humidifiers that will measure the air and keep the room between 40% and 60%, while others incorporate UV light technology designed to kill stray particles."Properly balanced UV light will inactivate viruses and bacteria in the air, which just adds an extra layer to the protection coming from the air purifier," Bromage said.Costs range from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars, but don't be fooled by the price tag: You're looking for a machine with a HEPA filter designed for the size of your room so measure carefully. Having too small of a machine in a large room won't clean the air while having a large system in a small room is a waste of money.Finally, know that HEPA filters can be pricey and will need frequent attention to keep them in top performance.Many point to the cost of filters and the expense of retrofitting buildings and say it may not be worth it. That's not always the case, Allen said."It's a total misnomer that healthy building strategies and higher ventilation rates and filtration are expensive strategies," Allen said. "When people know and understand how it's transmitted, then they're empowered to make better decisions."And that includes right in your home: You'd have people over, open up those windows; you're in your car with somebody else, roll down the window, a few inches," Allen said."No one strategy alone is going to work. But if we layer enough of these on top of each other, we can significantly reduce risks."

When New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced last week that malls in New York could not reopen until they installed high-efficiency particulate air filters capable of trapping the virus that causes COVID-19, Harvard environmental health researcher Joseph Gardner Allen was thrilled.

"I've been writing consistently since early February about how healthy buildings should be the first line of defense against the novel coronavirus," said Allen, who directs the Healthy Buildings program at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

"I'm really grateful that we have a leader in the country somewhere who was finally talking about healthy buildings, ventilation and filtration," Allen said. "That hasn't happened before. It just hasn't happened."

Allen was one of 241 scientists who wrote an open letter to the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other health agencies, asking for a change in their guidance to the public on how the coronavirus can spread.

Current guidance only focuses on "hand washing, maintaining social distancing, and droplet precautions," the letter, published Monday in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases, said.

The health agencies are ignoring the tiny droplets of virus that sputter and spray from our mouths, become aerosolized and then float away into the air, the scientists said, as a likely means of transmission.

"They don't want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid," co-author Donald Milton, a professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland, told CNN in a prior interview.

"The best vaccine against fear is knowledge and empowering people to take care of themselves," Milton said. "Why wearing a mask is important is because it blocks the aerosols at their source, when it is easy to block them."

Because the CDC and WHO "have been so slow to acknowledge aerosol transmission is happening, buildings are not putting in appropriate control measures," said Allen, who has focused his career on "sick buildings" and how they affect worker performance and productivity.

"The prudent and pragmatic approach is to acknowledge that airborne transmission is happening and put in the controls. If we find out in five years, that airborne was 5% of transmission, then OK," Allen said. "But what if it's 20% or 30% and we failed to acknowledge it? That's a problem."

The CDC says "COVID-19 is thought to spread mainly through close contact from person-to-person," through "respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks."

"I subscribe to the CDC opinion that the vast majority of transmission occurs within 3 to 6 feet from the infected person. That's the highway where all the traffic is where the vast majority of this virus is transmitted," said infectious disease expert Dr. William Schaffner, a professor of preventive medicine and infectious diseases at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville.

"Are there side streets where it can become an aerosol and spread into the air? Yes," Schaffner said, adding that isn't likely to create a significant transmission route. If future public health investigations find these "aerosol transmission events are more common than currently thought," that could change priorities.

"But I don't think we need to change all the AC units in the U.S. and around the world based on side street traffic," Schaffner added. "We want to attack the high traffic route by the big three masks, social distancing and avoiding large groups. Then we'll get virus transmission down."

A mid-March study found COVID-19 can survive in microscopic respiratory droplets about 2.5 microns in diameter and smaller, which can remain airborne and viable for up to three hours or more.

In early May, Harvard's Allen and Linsey Marr, a professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, published a paper that rounded up research focusing on the role of smaller airborne particles in the spread of the novel coronavirus.

"It is impossible for someone to release 'large droplets' without also releasing smaller ones. Thus, transmission that is purported to occur via the spray of large droplets from a cough could in fact be occurring through inhalation of much smaller droplets at close range," the paper said.

Marr, who made a groundbreaking discovery that a flu virus could float in the air in microscopic droplets for an hour or more, likes to use cigarettes as a way to explain how viruses spread.

"The smaller microscopic ones that we call aerosols behave kind of like cigarette smoke. So they're going to be more concentrated closer to the smoker, the person who might be infected. As you get farther away, your exposure would be much less," Marr said.

Will masks protect against those microscopic floating droplets? Top-rated N95 and surgical-grade masks will, and scientists are scrambling to study and tweak the effectiveness of homemade masks.

"For most cloth face masks, there is no inner filtration layer that traps harmful particles," said Sara Greenstein, president and CEO of Lydall, one of the companies who signed with the Department of Defense to produce filtration media for N95 masks.

"Although wearing a cloth face mask is better than nothing, it is no substitute for an N95 or surgical mask, which are precisely engineered, highly technical products," Greenstein said.

Even when medical-grade masks are widespread, ventilation systems with highly effective filters are another key way to filter droplets from the air, Allen said.

In his edict to New York mall owners, Cuomo was talking about HEPA filters, which have the highest MERV ratings, between 17 and 20.

What's MERV? It stands for "minimum efficiency reporting value," and it's how filters are rated in their ability to trap tiny particles. The MERV ratings go from one to 20: Filters with higher MERV ratings are more effective than filters with lower ratings.

At the highest end, HEPA filters are used by hospitals to create sterile rooms for surgeries and to control infectious diseases, and are able to remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria and other airborne particles with a size as small as 0.3 microns. For comparison, COVID-19 is thought to be between 0.06 to 1.4 microns.

"Filters are rated at their worst performance, so 99.97% is the worst it will do," Allen said. "And that's rated for a particle size of 0.3 microns, but smaller and larger it actually does better. So the point is that it's capturing nearly all particles."

Unfortunately, most businesses and home owners may find it difficult to retrofit their existing system to accommodate a HEPA filter, or any filter higher than the rating recommended by the system's manufacturer.

Doing so can actually impair the system's performance: Smaller pores in HEPA air filters make it more difficult for it to push air. Using denser filters can affect the efficiency of the unit and strain the fan, while decreasing indoor air quality the opposite of what you desire.

"HEPA filtration is not always going to be feasible or practical," Allen said. "But there are other filters that can do the job. What is recommended now by the standard setting body for HVAC is a MERV 13 filter."

High-efficiency filters in the 13-to-16 MERV range are often used in hospitals, nursing homes, research labs and other places where filtration is important.

"If you're an owner of a home, building or mall, you want to have someone to assess your system and install the largest MERV number filter the system can reliably handle without dropping the volume of air that runs through it," advised Erin Bromage, an associate professor of biology at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth.

"In addition, virtually all modern air conditioning systems in commercial buildings have a process called makeup air where they bring in air from outside and condition it and bring it inside," said Bromage, a CNN contributor who wrote a blog post in early May "The Risks Know Them Avoid Them," that got over 13 million views in one week.

Building owners should be looking at increasing the amount of makeup air that is brought inside by opening dampers, Bromage suggested.

"It's worse in regards to energy, but the more outside air we bring in, the more dilution of the virus we have and then the safer you are," Bromage said, adding that it's important to also monitor humidity levels."

"There's sort of a 'Goldilocks' zone for the coronavirus, between 40 and 60% humidity, where it doesn't survive for very long," Bromage said.

Below 40% humidity, he said, the infected droplets hang in the air longer, thus providing the opportunity to travel farther to infect people. Above 60%, the droplet absorbs more moisture, growing heavier and more vulnerable to gravity, "which sounds like a great thing," Bromage said.

"But it actually drops onto surfaces much faster and being wet actually keeps the virus alive and infectious for longer," he added.

First, focus on following public health recommendations: Wear masks when you go outside, stay away from large crowds and 6 feet from anyone not in your "quarantine bubble," wash your hands with soap frequently, keep your hands away from your face, and try to only go to outdoor locations with excellent air circulation and filtration.

If you have the resources, there are also personal HEPA air purifiers on the market, designed to clean a standard room of a home. Some even come with humidifiers that will measure the air and keep the room between 40% and 60%, while others incorporate UV light technology designed to kill stray particles.

"Properly balanced UV light will inactivate viruses and bacteria in the air, which just adds an extra layer to the protection coming from the air purifier," Bromage said.

Costs range from a few hundred to over a thousand dollars, but don't be fooled by the price tag: You're looking for a machine with a HEPA filter designed for the size of your room so measure carefully. Having too small of a machine in a large room won't clean the air while having a large system in a small room is a waste of money.

Finally, know that HEPA filters can be pricey and will need frequent attention to keep them in top performance.

Many point to the cost of filters and the expense of retrofitting buildings and say it may not be worth it. That's not always the case, Allen said.

"It's a total misnomer that healthy building strategies and higher ventilation rates and filtration are expensive strategies," Allen said. "When people know and understand how it's transmitted, then they're empowered to make better decisions.

"And that includes right in your home: You'd have people over, open up those windows; you're in your car with somebody else, roll down the window, a few inches," Allen said.

"No one strategy alone is going to work. But if we layer enough of these on top of each other, we can significantly reduce risks."

240 Scientists Say Coronavirus Can Be Spread Through the Air and People Need to Know – The Weather Channel

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on 240 Scientists Say Coronavirus Can Be Spread Through the Air and People Need to Know – The Weather Channel

A group of about 240 scientists is urging health care agencies and government officials to pay more attention to the potential airborne transmission of the new coronavirus.

"There is significant potential for inhalation exposure to viruses in microscopic respiratory droplets (microdroplets) at short to medium distances (up to several meters, or room-scale), and we are advocating for the use of preventive measures to mitigate this route of airborne transmission," the group said in an open letter published Monday in the journal Clinical Infectious Diseases.

The letter said most public health agencies, including the World Health Organization, do not recognize airborne transmission of the virus that causes COVID-19 except for aerosol-generating procedures performed in health care settings.

In an update on the coronavirus on June 29, the WHO said airborne transmission of the virus is possible only after medical procedures, such as intubation and CPR, that produce tiny aerosol droplets smaller than 5 microns (a micron is equal to one-millionth of a meter).

Dr. Benedetta Allegranzi, the WHOs technical lead on infection control, told the New York Times the evidence for the virus spreading by air was unconvincing.

"Especially in the last couple of months, we have been stating several times that we consider airborne transmission as possible but certainly not supported by solid or even clear evidence," she said. "There is a strong debate on this."

WHO guidance says the coronavirus is transmitted primarily between people through larger respiratory droplets and contact, and maintaining distance and sanitizing hands and surfaces are the ways to stop infections.

More experts are beginning to disagree, and they say more than hand-washing will be needed to prevent the virus from spreading.

"Hand-washing and social distancing are appropriate, but in our view, insufficient to provide protection from virus-carrying respiratory microdroplets released into the air by infected people. This problem is especially acute in indoor or enclosed environments, particularly those that are crowded and have inadequate ventilation," the letter said.

Donald Milton, a leader of the group and professor of environmental health at the University of Maryland, told CNN the health agencies "don't want to talk about airborne transmission because that is going to make people afraid."

He said there is also a concern people will stop doing other things they need to do to prevent transmission, such as washing hands, staying apart and cleaning surfaces, if they think the virus is airborne.

Linsey Marr, an expert in airborne transmission of viruses at Virginia Tech and one of the scientists who signed the letter, said the coronavirus seemed to be most infectious when people were in prolonged contact at close range, especially indoors, the New York Times reported.

Paul Hunter, a professor in medicine at the University of East Anglia and a member of the WHOs infection prevention committee, said the WHO had struck the right balance in its advice.

"Aerosol transmission can occur but it probably isn't that important in the grand scheme of things. It's all about droplets," Hunter told the Guardian. "Controlling airborne transmission isn't going to do that much to control the spread of COVID-19. It's going to impose unnecessary burdens, particularly in countries where they don't have enough trained staff or resources already."

Milton told CNN there are ways to improve ventilation for the average person as well as health care professionals.

"I am very much concerned about the general public and schools and ventilation in school buildings and in dorms on college campuses and in bars and in churches and where people sing and where people congregate," he said.

Some of the measures the group recommends in its letter include:

-Provide sufficient and effective ventilation (supply clean outdoor air, minimize recirculating air) particularly in public buildings, workplace environments, schools, hospitals and nursing homes.

-Supplement general ventilation with airborne infection controls such as local exhaust, high-efficiency air filtration and germicidal ultraviolet lights.

-Avoid overcrowding, particularly in public transport and public buildings.

"We hope that our statement will raise awareness that airborne transmission of COVID-19 is a real risk and that control measures, as outlined above, must be added to the other precautions taken, to reduce the severity of the pandemic and save lives," the letter said.

Cases in the United States have surged recently as many states reopened their economies and people began gathering in bars, restaurants and other venues. Nationally, there have been 2.9 million confirmed cases, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. There have been more than 130,000 deaths in the U.S.

Worldwide, more than 11.5 million infections have been reported with more than 535,000 deaths.

United States:

-At least 32 states reported a rise in coronavirus cases compared to the previous week. Only four states Connecticut, Kentucky, Massachusetts and New Hampshire are seeing a decline in cases, CNN reported.

-Five months since the first coronavirus case was identified in Maricopa County, Arizona joined Texas, California, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts and Illinois in passing the 100,000-case mark on Monday, The Washington Post reported.

-In an open letter to the public, the American Medical Association, the American Hospital Association and the American Nurses Association urged people to wear masks, maintain distance and wash their hands to help stop the spread of the coronavirus. "What is certain and what the science and evidence are telling us is that COVID-19 is not behind us and we must resist confusing re-opening with returning to normalcy. Doing so will escalate this crisis and result in more suffering and death," the letter said.

-New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo accused President Donald Trump of enabling the virus. Cuomo urged Trump to "acknowledge to the American people that COVID exists, it is a major problem, its going to continue until we admit it and each of us stands up to do our part." Over the weekend, Trump incorrectly stated that 99% of coronavirus cases are "totally harmless.

-White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany defended Trumps baseless claim by saying he was making a point about the viruss relatively low mortality rate. What the president was pointing to was a factual statement, one that is rooted in science and one that was pointing out the fact that mortality in this country is very low, McEnany said at a press briefing Monday. Data from Johns Hopkins University suggests a coronavirus fatality rate of 4.6%, CNN reports.

-Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez moved Monday to reclose many businesses as the Florida county continues to see spikes in the numbers of confirmed coronavirus cases and hospitalizations. Beginning Wednesday, ballrooms, banquet facilities, party venues, gyms and fitness centers, and short-term rentals will have to close. Restaurants will be allowed to offer only takeout and delivery. Office buildings, retail spaces and grooming services will still be permitted to open.

-West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has made masks or face coverings inside buildings in the state mandatory for all residents age 9 and above, WBOY reported. If we dont do it and do it now were going to be in a world of hurt, Justice said.

-Harvard University announced it will reopen with only about 40% of its undergraduates on campus. All undergraduate courses will be taught remotely, the university said, no matter where the students are living.

-Princeton University will allow half of undergrads will back on campus at a time. First-year students and juniors will come in the fall, and sophomores and seniors in the spring. Most instruction will be remote, the university announced.

Worldwide:

-A study in Spain indicated peoples immunity to coronavirus wanes after just a few weeks. The study found that 7% of participants who had antibodies in the first phase no longer showed them by the second phase, and that about 14% who had them in the first phase had lost them by the third phase, although this final figure requires more study, the Health Ministry said in a statement Monday. This means that any perceived immunity can be incomplete, transitory and then disappear, Dr. Raquel Yotti, head of the Carlos III Health Institute, a key government agency leading the study, said in a news conference on Monday.

-Averaging more than 800 new cases a day, Israel has re-imposed a series of strict limitations, including closing down event halls, cultural venues, clubs, bars and more. Gyms and public pools will be closed once again. Houses of worship would be limited to 19 people, and restaurants will be limited to 20 people in a closed area, or 30 people in an open area with sufficient distance between tables.

-After being closed for 16 weeks, the Louvre museum in Paris reopened Monday. About 7,000 visitors had booked tickets, compared with the 30,000 daily visitors who toured the Louvre before the pandemic.

Thank you doctors of Egypt… You are in our hearts – Egypt Independent

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Thank you doctors of Egypt… You are in our hearts – Egypt Independent

This title has been published thousands of times on social media, as an expression of gratitude towards the efforts of doctors during the coronavirus pandemic, and in protest of a statement made by the Prime Minister that has angered Egyptians everywhere.

The medical profession is one of the oldest professions in our dear country, with its history beginning with the ancient Egyptians and onward to the Alexandria school, where ancient Egyptian and Greek medicine mixed.

In the modern era, Mohamed Ali asked Clot Bey to establish a medical school which moved from Abu Zaabal to Qasr al-Aini on the Nile bank.

The first mission dispatched to study medicine to France after graduation, after which they came back to teach in the medical school, thus making Egypt the first country in the region to practice modern medicine through diagnosis and treatment of all kinds.

When modern devices, microscopic surgeries and sophisticated drugs entered the world of modern medicine, Egypts doctors were at the forefront of the world in receiving these tools and training with them.

Because of the difficult economic conditions Egypt has faced following a critical period in its history, no modern hospitals had been built to keep up with the times, though the government and the private sector have remedied the matter and built modern teaching and private hospitals on international standards.

Egyptian doctors have spread across the world, achieving great success in Europe and America, and for many years they have efficiently led the health system in Arab countries, particularly in the Gulf region.

Some people may think that these doctors are all very wealthy, but this is not true, because the vast majority of doctors and all young doctors suffer greatly in life due to poor salaries and incentives, so most of them try to travel abroad, which has already happened, and is why half of Egypts doctors now work outside.

As we all know, studying medicine in addition to the residency period lasts seven years, followed by three to seven years of training to start practicing the profession, and if a doctor wishes to train and obtain a certificate in a specific field then theyll need to study for another five years.

Doctors all over the world receive distinguished treatment and get paid well.

The Medical Syndicate is a long-established and distinguished union that provides distinguished union services for its members. This was the first union in Egypt that rose up at the beginning of the Muslim Brotherhood era and brought them down from its council.

I recount here the great day when the voting queue in the committee for over 60-year-olds during the unions elections reached nearly one a kilometer, even when it was a rainy day.

Before 1952, doctors participated in the 1946 uprising against the dictatorship, and against the British occupation, and participated with the guerrillas in the Canal Zone against the British aggression.

Many of them died during the October war.

And this year, doctors performed admirably when the world was invaded by the coronavirus pandemic, which so far has killed nearly half a million people.

In third world countries, including Egypt, it is difficult to know the numbers of those killed by the virus, because an unknown amount died in their homes, villages and hospitals without undertaking an analysis.

We also have, as is well known, a very weak health budget and the efficiency of the Ministry of Health is limited.

Doctors, nursing stuff and medical workers struggled under difficult conditions, as their protective equipment was insufficient, and therefore the death rate among physicians was very high.

Around 100 doctors died, and more than 2,000 were infected with the coronavirus, and many of the ones who died were young doctors from difficult financial conditions.

In light of the coronavirus and the possibility of its continuation or the emergence of a second wave globally, which is expected until a vaccine is prepared, we need everyone in the medical staff, and we should encourage them, raise their spirits and compensate the families of those who fell to the virus.

On the ground, it has become natural for the families of patients to attack doctors, break hospital equipment, and the government does nothing to defend them.

There is no law issued or firm stance to stop this chaos, which has become a routine thing happening every day.

The relationship between the Health Ministry and the Medical Syndicate must be one of of cooperation and understanding, and relations between the minister and doctors should be good, with the minister making the utmost effort to cooperate and make decisions after consulting with doctors and the medical syndicate in the interest of patients, the profession and the ministry as well.

In a major crisis such as the coronavirus, we must all stand together to fight the pandemic.

A while ago, the Prime Minister attempted to defuse the crisis.

He received the head of the Medical Syndicate and issued reassuring statements.

However everyone was shocked when the Prime Minister issued a controversial statement, angering physicians and citizens alike, when he announced that the Health Minister had said that the cause of the coronavirus pandemic was a lack of commitment by some doctors to their duty.

The Prime Minister has forgotten the martyred doctors and the thousands of medical workers keeping watch every night on the sick across all of Egypt, and he knows very well how weak the health system is and how weak the Health Ministrys plan is in confronting this disease.

The minister should avoid upsetting doctors, instead encouraging their work and cooperating with them, because relations between the ministry and the people during a pandemic must be good.

I think that this statement has severely shaken public opinion of the Prime Minister throughout social media, which is used by about 50 million citizens.

I was waiting for an apology from him to resolve this issue, as this is a normal practice in first world countries, but in the third world things are different. The government is always right and the people are wrong.

Rise, Egyptians! Egypt is always calling you.

Cannabis and COVID19: What’s real – Greenway

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Cannabis and COVID19: What’s real – Greenway

As the coronavirus spreads across the world with its trusty sidekick panic, people become desperate for answers and some have been willing to give them, even without real evidence.

To say that anything can cure coronavirus is, at this time, certainly a zealous overstatement; COVID-19 is still new, as is our ever-evolving understanding of it. Yet weve all seen the headlines promising the value of cannabis for prevention and treatment and while some may have been painfully misleading, you should know that there are some interesting studies in the works, and this article is dedicated to sharing those with you.

Just remember: at the end of the day, this is all still new and emerging research and you should always consult with a professional healthcare provider before making any changes to your routines.

Heres what we know:

Dr. Donald Tashkin, a professor at UCLA, has extensively studied the effect of smoking cannabis on the lungs. According to some of his research, Regular smoking of marijuana by itself causes visible and microscopic injury to the large airways that is consistently associated with an increased likelihood of symptoms of chronic bronchitis that subside after cessation of use. This includes phlegm production, inflammation of the lungs, and coughing. The study does note, however, that the pulmonary risks of smoking cannabis, even heavily, are far lower than the consequences of using tobacco.

In addition, according to a study, only 12% of smoke inhaled had beneficial compounds. When the cannabis was instead vaporized, it contained 95% of beneficial compounds. Vaping cannabis does not create combustion but instead heats the plant material just enough to release the medicinal properties.

Considering all of this information, vaping your medicine may be a better alternative to smoking if you are diagnosed with COVID-19.

According to Dr. Thomas Macsay, CBD can be an effective tool in combating chronic inflammatory patterns present in many disease processes and immune dysfunction. [CBD] is able to achieve this by upregulating the endocannabinoid system, he said. Which is meant to regulate cellular function and decreasing inflammatory signaling, bringing the body closer to homeostasis.

CBD also acts as an immunosuppressant, according to Dr. Macsay. It does this by binding CB2 receptors and causing death to the diseased cells, otherwise known as apoptosis. It also introduces regulatory T cells to the body, cells that populate the immune system, and has a role in regulating the immune system.

Cannabis and CBD are also bronchodilators meaning they tend to relax and open the airways. This may be an important point in arguing cannabis as a coronavirus treatment.

Though we have been in the coronavirus trenches for months now, we still dont know enough about COVID-19 and how it behaves like a virus, much less regarding COVID-19 and cannabis. That being said, there is still some great research being done in this area.

One of the most exciting studies is from a team of Canadian scientists out of the University of Lethbridge, done in April 2020. The scientists found that 13 (out of the 800 different varieties tested) of the cannabis plants that were high in CBD affected the ACE2 pathways. This is the means to which the coronavirus enters the human body, the way it gets in. It is important to note that based on the research, a patient couldnt use any regular cannabis product and expect to fight COVID-19 off. The data supports only high-CBD/low-THC strains as a possible treatment method, and even so, it was just a handful of the varieties tested that showed promise.

According to the study, We have developed over 800 new Cannabis sativa lines and extracts and hypothesized that high-CBD C. sativa extracts may be used to modulate ACE2 expression in COVID-19 target tissues. Screening C. sativa extracts using artificial human 3D models of oral, airway, and intestinal tissues, we identified 13 high CBD C. sativa extracts that modulate ACE2 gene expression and ACE2 protein levels. Our initial data suggest that some C. sativa extract down-regulate serine protease TMPRSS2, another critical protein required for SARS-CoV2 entry into host cells.

Israel is considered to be the most progressive when it comes to cannabis research, and they have many studies in the works. According to FreshToast, InnoCan Pharma is collaborating with Tel Aviv University for a study around utilizing exosomes as homing missiles to target cell organs damaged by COVID-19. As writer Brendan Bures states, it is thought that CBDs anti-inflammatory properties will repair the damaged cells through a synergistic effect.

Additionally, at Israels Rabin Medical Center, Stereo Biotechs and Mor Research Application have a clinical trial in the works, exploring the use of traditional steroids and CBD [to fight COVID-19], with the belief CBD will enhance the therapeutic potential of the steroids.

A third study is being conducted by Tel Avivs Ichilov Medical Center, investigating the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD and how that could diminish respiratory symptoms experienced in moderate COVID-19 patients.

What this means is the team has carefully developed several cannabis strains that have been experimentally shown to make it significantly more difficult for the SARS-CoV2 coronavirus to find a home inside of the tissue cells it latches onto in order to infect us with the COVID-19 disease. SOURCE

Denise C. Vidot is leading a preliminary study at the University of Miami exploring cannabis users and COVID-19. The press release reads, Through an anonymous electronic survey, experts will obtain epidemiologic data on the mental and physical health among those who use cannabis for medicinal purposes. The survey will also help examine potential changes in frequency, dose, and route of cannabis use patterns based on COVID-19-related closures and updates. Another topic that researchers will be investigating is the sharing of inhaled cannabis products, such as joints and vapes among users, which could be a contributing factor to the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Vidot said, If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that population-based data is vital to make informed decisions, Vidot said. So, we are combining our skills to do our part to provide that data. Our goal is to have cannabis users from every country complete this survey, so the data is more generalizable.

Another interesting study that has come out of the cannabis industry has been on the technology of BioLargos CupriDyne for inactivating COVID-19, aka Cannabusters.

CupriDyne is designed to eliminate odor with a completely natural ingredient: activated iodine or Iodine 2. According to Cannabusters brand rep Derek Stucki, iodine (I) is what makes air smell so fresh after a rain; it oxidizes all organic molecules it comes into contact with, effectively eliminating rather than masking or encapsulating the odor. And its completely safe after all, its a necessary nutrient found in table salt, and throughout our food supply.

With its ability to break down tough compounds, Cannabusters had to wonder: could CupriDyne be helpful for fighting COVID-19? It turns out that it has the potential to do just that. A study done at the Galveston National Laboratory showed promise in the Cannabusters ability to inactivate SARS-CoV-2, concluding that the novel iodine complex tested herein offers a safe and gentle alternative to conventional disinfectants for use on indoor and outdoor surfaces. It is currently pending FDA approval, and Stucki has high hopes that their new consumer-focused product, Cannabreezy, could be used by the general public to help disinfect personal masks and other potentially contaminated goods at home.

Research shows masks may be the key to containing COVID-19 – White Mountain Independent

§ July 7th, 2020 § Filed under Nano Medicine Comments Off on Research shows masks may be the key to containing COVID-19 – White Mountain Independent

ARIZONA Masks have become a cultural flashpoint, in the long shadow of the pandemic.

Masks or the lack of masks have spurred bitter arguments in the checkout lines, attacks on store clerks, defiance by small-town mayors, fashion statements and political rants.

Nonetheless, doctors, governors and the federal Centers for Disease Control now urge everyone wear masks in public especially if they cant stay six feet apart.

So how did advice from doctors become so controversial?

Why did the US Surgeon General initially warn people not to wear masks?

Most importantly will widespread mask-wearing blunt the frightening second wave of infections now plaguing Arizona and much of the West and South?

Short answer to that last crucial question?

A growing body of research suggests that widespread mask wearing by the healthy and the sick alike can slow down the spread of the virus as effectively as closing businesses and rarely leaving the house.

In fact, one recent study concluded that mandatory face mask orders issued in 15 states may have already reduced the total number of infections by 300,000 or 400,000. Studies show that widespread mask wearing could have just as big an impact on slowing the spread of COVID-19 as the shutdown of schools and businesses and the stay-at-home orders that have caused such economic carnage.

So why has the message changed from the early days of the pandemic when the US Surgeon General said people shouldnt rush out and buy masks already in short supply for doctors and nurses?

Mostly, this is because doctors have discovered that people who arent coughing, sneezing, feverish or in any way symptomatic can still spread the virus. In fact, perhaps as many as 40 percent of those infected never develop noticeable symptoms, but still spread the virus when they breathe or talk. The other 60 percent may be most infections a day or two before symptoms develop.

That conclusion has emerged from a growing body of research, both in the real world and in the laboratory. As a result, near-universal mask wearing in public remains one of the best ways to slow the spread of the virus and buy time, while doctors continue to search feverishly both for effective treatments and vaccines.

That doesnt mean people in masks can safely gather in big crowds or ignore social distancing rules. But the combination of social distancing and wearing a mask provides the best protection from a virus that spreads mostly through the air, according to the research.

Masks work because the virus spreads mostly in microscopic, airborne droplets. People who are infected breath out these droplets constantly, with the viral load and range increasing when we talk, cough, sing or shout. Fortunately, cloth masks made of a finely woven fabric stops most of those droplets, even if the mesh of the cloth is larger than the virus itself. To spread efficiently, the virus must be protected and wafted aloft while riding cocooned in the droplet of moisture. Such droplets can travel 30 feet and linger in an enclosed space for hours.

Some anecdotal evidence suggests wearing a mask can make a dramatic difference in the rate of spread. Of instance, a man infected with COVID-19 flew from China to Toronto. He had a dry cough, but wore a mask on the flight. The 25 people sitting closest to him were all subsequently tested for the virus and none were infected, in CMAJ, a Canadian medical journal.

In another case, two hair stylists in Missouri had close contacts with 140 clients while sick with COVID-19. Everyone wore a mask and none of the clients tested positive, according to the case report published in a medical journal.

Many researchers now argue that the widespread use of masks to cope with air pollution in many Asian cities may account for the much greater success of countries like China, South Korea, Singapore and Japan in containing the virus. China managed to contain the initial outbreak to Wuhan, even as the virus spread to every state in the US. China also contained a second outbreak in Bejing. Many people in urban areas of China already wore surgical masks daily due to the dangerous level of air pollution in Chinas major cities.

So heres a summary of some of the latest research on how COVID-19 spreads and how wearing a mask will make a difference.

Stay Healthy: One lab-based study found quietly saying stay healthy generates hundreds of droplets ranging from 20 to 500 micrometers, but nearly all those droplets were blocked by covering the mouth with a damp washcloth, according to the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Masks work: Wearing a surgical mask significantly reduced the viral particles emitted in droplets and aerosols by 246 people with the flu or the common cold, according to a study published in NatureMedicine. People wearing masks released about 1,000 particles in 30 minutes while people without masks released about 100,000,000,000 particles.

States compared: A study in Health Affairs found mask mandates in 15 states slowed the spread of the virus, compared to 15 states without such a statewide mandate. The mandate slowed growth by 1 percent immediately and 2 percent over the first three weeks. That doesnt sound like much, but it was likely enough to reduce the total number of infections by as much as 450,000 in the 15 states.

Countries compared: Countries in which most people wore masks in public had a much lower rate of spread of COVID-19, according to a study of 198 countries published in ResearchGate. In countries with government policies or cultural norms supporting widespread mask wearing practices deaths increased by 8 percent per week, compared to 54 percent in similar countries where people generally didnt wear masks. The average of the population, obesity rates and curtailment of international travel also affected the mortality rate. Lockdowns, testing rates and contact tracing also had an impact on mortality rates, but much less than mask-wearing.

80 percent: If 80 percent of people wore masks in public it would slow the spread of the disease more than a strict lockdown according the results of a computer modeling program based on research on the effectiveness of various interventions, according to an international study by researchers from UC Berkeley, Cambridge and elsewhere. The study suggested that if 80 percent of people reliably wear masks in public it slows the spread of the virus by 60 percent. However, if fewer than 50 percent of people wear masks, it has little impact on the overall spread. The computer projection concluded effective social distancing after lockdowns end would eventually produce 1.1 million deaths in the US. An indefinite lockdown would produce 180,000 deaths. Masking levels of 50 percent after lockdowns end would produce 240,000 deaths. Masking levels of 80 percent after lockdowns end would produce 60,000 deaths.

Saving lives: Another projection by Health Metrics and Evaluation concluded that if 95 percent of people wear masks in public it would save 33,000 lives by Oct. 1.

Cloth masks work: Surgical masks and cloth masks with a triple-layer, fine woven cloth work almost as well as custom fitted, N95 surgical masks for non-medical personnel outside the hospital, according to a study by engineers from Northeastern University. The homemade cloth masks tested removed 38 to 96 percent as many viral particles as surgical maps. However, more crude masks like simply wearing a bandana or even a face shield that doesnt make contact with the face around the mouth and nose were ineffective.

Masks slash infections: A Texas A&M study concluded that face mask use in New York from April 17 to May 9 reduced cases by 66,000. In Italy from April 6 to May 9, masks reduced infections by 78,000. The authors including Nobel prizewinning atmospheric chemist Mario Molina from US San Diego, concluded mask-wearing can do more to stop the spread of the virus than hand washing or social distancing although they still urged the public to practice those measures. The research has come under fire after publication in the scientific journal PNAS for statistical methods that potentially.
