Pollution makes a COVID-19 contagion more serious | Digital Trends Spanish

According to a new study presented at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID), long-term exposure to high levels of air pollutants, such as fine particulate matter (PM2.5), could have a significant influence on the results of people hospitalized for COVID-19. Thus, those in charge of the study discovered that the greater the exposure, the greater the risk. Indeed, every small increase (ug / m3) in long-term exposure to PM2.5 is associated with more than three times the probability of receiving mechanical ventilation and twice the probability of staying in the ICU. "Our study draws attention to the systemic inequalities that may have led to the marked differences in COVID-19 outcomes based on race and ethnicity," says Dr. Anita Shallal of Detroit'...

When does “normal life” return according to the founder of BioNTech? | Digital Trends Spanish

Pfizer's announcement that its coronavirus vaccine would have been more than 90 percent effective gave us all some hope regarding an eventual (albeit distant) end to the health crisis. Of course, we all have to be aware that the period that follows the application of the vaccine will not be easy, nor will it be perfect. In fact, it will be as hard and difficult as the one we have experienced during this 2020. So at least Ugur Sahin, founder of BioNTech, a German company associated with Pfizer in the development of the vaccine against COVID-19, has announced. In conversation with Sky News, the scientist pointed out that people could start getting vaccinated in the United Kingdom from next month. Of course, this would depend on whether the regulator in that territory approves the dr...

A new cocktail of drugs to treat aggressive cancers | Digital Trends Spanish

A team of researchers from the Harvard Wyss Institute claims to have developed a method to treat triple negative breast cancer. Professionals believe that by mixing immunotherapy with chemotherapy they may have developed a method for the specific treatment of aggressive cancers. Chemotherapy is essentially a poison that is injected into the body and kills cancer cells. However, it also causes enormous collateral damage to the surrounding tissue. Immunotherapy, for its part, tries to squeeze the immune response that exists in the patient so that it targets cancer cells. However, the more aggressive cancers trigger immunosuppressive responses in the area near the tumors, making both treatments less effective. For the same reason, the researchers took the best of both approaches, mix...

Your smartwatch could detect the next COVID-19 outbreak | Digital Trends Spanish

Smartwatches have multiple applications, some of them linked to the field of health: they are capable of monitoring our heart rate, counting the steps we take and monitoring our sleep patterns. Now they could also help detect a COVID-19 outbreak prematurely, according to Scripps Research scientists. They discovered that the combination of the data delivered by this device along with the symptoms could predict whether a person was infected. This finding is part of the DETECT (Digital Engagement and Tracking for Early Control and Treatment) study, which is still ongoing. What does it consist of? The study included 30,000 people from the United States, enrolled between March and June, who shared data from their devices and reported symptoms when they felt sick. About 3,800 participant...

AstraZeneca reports on distribution of its vaccine | Digital Trends Spanish

Josep Baselga is the director of AstraZeneca's Oncology Research and Development area. In conversation with Spanish media, the professional has ensured that the vaccine developed by the pharmaceutical company against COVID-19 could be in an advanced distribution phase at the end of the first quarter of next year. Baselga has pointed out that by early 2021, the company would have some three billion doses of vaccines that it hopes can be verified as effective. The difficult thing, in this case, would be to find a practical and effective way to distribute them due to the high demand that will exist. For its part, AstraZeneca hopes that before the end of this year, some of the four vaccines it is experimenting with will start to show results. Shutterstock. It is estimated that this vac...

They connect a person to a computer through the veins | Digital Trends Spanish

A group of Australian scientists has successfully tested a neurocomputer interface that would allow humans to control various electronic devices, inserting electrodes through veins. This innovative finding would have important applications in the therapies of patients suffering from severe paralysis, whether due to disorders of the brain, spinal cord or muscle. To achieve this brain-computer interface, the researchers placed electrodes through a small expandable tube called a Stentrode, similar to the one doctors use to restore normal flow through veins and arteries. Initial tests The scientists tested the electrodes on two patients who suffered from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), resulting in paralysis of their limbs. The device along with the eye tracker were connected to ...

Hackers publish data on hundreds of psychiatric patients | Digital Trends Spanish

According to data from the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), about one in five Finnish inhabitants suffers from psychological problems. It is one of the countries most affected in Europe by mental illness. For this reason, the cyber attack on the private company Vastaamo, which runs 25 psychological therapy centers throughout the country, caused such a stir. In this action, a group of cybercriminals threatened thousands of patients at these centers with disclosing private and sensitive information about the conversations they had with their therapists. The attackers would have managed to steal a large number of confidential files that they threatened to disclose if each affected patient did not pay them about $ 230 in bitcoin. According to official infor...

Human Challenge: voluntary infection for COVID-19 vaccines | Digital Trends Spanish

The entire planet maintains a fierce fight against COVID-19. The pandemic caused by this disease looms as one of the greatest health threats we have faced in recent times. At this point, with more than a million deaths globally, any attempt to slow the spread of the virus is worth it, even if it includes intentionally infecting some volunteer patients. Scientists from Imperial College have proposed a controversial and disputed method of deliberate exposure, known as the test "Human challenge ". According to experts, this strategy would include deliberately infecting a group of volunteer patients in early 2021, to study how vaccinated people respond to being exposed to the virus. This could accelerate the discovery of an effective coronavirus vaccine and make a difference to the wa...
