  • Chemosensory scientists have been skeptical that reports of COVID-19 taste loss are genuine, in part because before COVID-19, taste loss was rare and often confused with smell loss. Therefore, to establish the predicted prevalence rate of taste loss in COVID-19 patients, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of 376 papers published in 2020-2021, with 241 meeting all inclusion criteria. Additionally, we explored how methodological differences (direct vs. self-report measures) may…
  • The Japan healthcare system is considered as one of the world's finest.

  • CONCLUSIONS: In patients recovered from COVID-19, echocardiography with speckle-tracking analysis may be an useful imaging tool to identify subclinical myocardial dysfunction and potentially guide management strategies.
  • CONCLUSION: Regarding the results, we conclude that pain is not one of the challenging symptoms and easily manageable in patients with a mild-moderate intensity of COVID-19. Our results were not enough to make a correlation between pain and the clinical course of the disease. Further studies are required for the evaluation of pain including patients in intensive care units.
  • COVID-19 pandemic extended all around the world causing millions of deaths. Beside the acute respiratory distress syndrome, a large number of severe COVID-19 patients develop thrombo-embolic complications associated to multi organ failure and death. Here, we review evidences for the contribution of neutrophils, platelets and extracellular vesicles (EV) to the thromboinflammatory process in COVID-19. We discuss how the immune system, influenced by pro-inflammatory molecules, EVs and neutrophil…

  • CONCLUSION: Long COVID syndrome is a frequent and significant condition. In this large population based study, we report that chronic post-COVID "brain fog" has significant associations with sex (female), respiratory symptoms at the onset, and the severity of the illness (ICU admission).

  • A balanced immune regulation is crucial for recognizing an invading pathogen, its killing and its elimination. TLRs are the key regulators of the innate immune system. It helps in identifying between self and non-self-molecule and eventually eliminates the non-self. Endosomal TLR mainly TLR3, TLR7, TLR8 and membrane bound TLR4 has a role in the induction of cytokine storm. TLR7/8 recognize the ssRNA SARS-COV-2 and when it replicates to dsRNA, it is recognized by TLR3 and drive the TRIF mediated…
