Covid-19: New protein-based vaccine doesn’t need refrigeration for storage

Researchers from Boston Children’s Hospital in the United States reported that existing Covid vaccines require cold storage.

Thus, it makes them hard to produce and distribute widely, especially in under-developed countries.

So, the researchers have designed a novel protein-based Covid-19 vaccine that is significantly easier to make and does not require refrigeration.

According to the researchers, the novel vaccine, published in the journal PNAS, might help to reduce the immunisation gaps around the world.

Indeed, the novel vaccine produced high immune responses in mice against SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes Covid-19, and its variations. The new method might allow vaccine production in various countries.

Moreover, they have applied for a patent on their invention. And seek to cooperate with the biotech or pharmaceutical industries for a further clinical study.

Diabetes drug helps to treat chronic kidney disease: Report

The study published in the journal Lancet shows that a diabetes drug lowers the risk of worsening kidney function.

Dapagliflozin lowers the rate of renal function loss in people with chronic kidney disease, according to a clinical trial of 4,304 participants.

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a long-term disease in which the kidneys do not function properly. Indeed, it is common among aged people.

Diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and kidney infections are some factors that affect the kidneys. It is significant to have a healthy lifestyle and to control underlying diseases.

CKD can worsen over time, although medications can stop or lower the progress. However, many patients live with this illness well-controlled over a long period.

Polyunsaturated Fat may decrease stroke risk: Study

New research found that eating more animal fat increased the risk of stroke. Whereas eating more vegetable fat or polyunsaturated fat decreased it.

Moreover, this is the first study to examine the effects of fat obtained from vegetable, dairy, and non-dairy animal sources on stroke risk.

The animal fat in the beef, pork or lamb as a main dish, in sandwiches or mixed recipes, and processed red meats are dangerous.

The American Heart Association’s Scientific Sessions 2021 showed the findings of this research in the virtual meet.

The study’s limitation is that it is observational. Thus, the findings cannot demonstrate a cause-and-effect relationship between fat consumption and stroke risk.

And, it cannot be generalised to people all over the world.

A gene mutation found in the brain increased the risk factor of Alzheimer’s Disease: Study

Researchers at Indiana University School of Medicine have researched how immune cells in the brain, known as microglia.

And how microglia link to a gene mutation newly discovered in Alzheimer’s disease patients.

The journal Science Advances published the study’s findings.

The study, led by Dr Hande Karahan, and Dr Jungsu Kim, discovered that deleting the gene, known as ABI3, significantly increased plaque accumulation in the brain. Thus, decreasing the amount of microglia around the plagues.

They observed elevated amounts of plaques and inflammation in the brain, as well as symptoms of synaptic disruption in the mouse model – traits linked with the disease’s learning and memory problems.

Karahan and Kim earned three funds for Alzheimer’s research, totalling $7.8 million for the next five years to support their research.

Adolescents who experience discrimination have increased risk of mental problems: Study

Young adults who have encountered discrimination are more likely to have behavioural and mental health difficulties, according to a recent UCLA study.

The journal ‘Pediatrics’ published the findings of the study.

Researchers analyzed the health data of 1,834 Americans aged 18 to 28 at the start of the research.

They discovered that the consequences of prejudice might be cumulative. For instance, the more discrimination someone experiences, the greater their risk for mental and behavioural issues.

Previous research has connected prejudice to an increased risk for mental illness, psychological discomfort, and drug use.

While earlier research has looked at the association in childhood or later adulthood, this is the first study to look at the transition to adulthood and follow the same group of people through time.
