COVID-19 and Long COVID

COVID-19 and Post COVID-19 Condition (Long COVID)
The COVID-19 outbreak presents the unprecedented challenge for world public and medical practitioners and health care providers, the post COVID-19 condition (or long COVID) includes long term symptoms which may persist for months or years after SARS-CoV-2 infection. We will consider submissions related to all aspects of COVID-19 and Long COVID, and process the manuscripts in priority.
Collection of COVID-19 articles.


Highlights

  • Combination of a Glucagon-Like Peptide 1 Analog and a Sodium-Glucose Cotransporter 2 Inhibitor Improves Lipid Metabolism Compared to the Monotherapies in Experimental Metabolic Syndrome

    Here we evaluated the association of the glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) analog, liraglutide, and the sodium-glucose cotransporter-2 (SGLT-2) inhibitor, canagliflozin, on the improvement of metabolic syndrome symptoms in a high-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity rat model.

  • Bone Mineral Density as a Predictor of Cardiovascular Disease in Women: A Real-World Retrospective Study

    Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in women remains understudied, under-diagnosed, and under-treated. Traditional risk factors affect men’s and women’s hearts differently. However, the current risk stratification tools do not consider such sex-specific factors.

  • Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate

    The retrospective study investigated thyroid function and CKD, and assessed the relationship between thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), and the slope of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), stratified by CKD grades.

  • Sedentary Lifestyle Attenuates Positive Metabolic Effect of Regular Physical Exercise

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the duration of sedentary time on blood lipids and anthropometric parameters in people practicing resistance training in leisure time. Our study included 213 subjects without any history of cardiovascular disease. The target group (169 subjects) had at least two 90-min sessions of resistance training per week for at least 12 months prior to study commencing.

  • Extreme Elevation of Alkaline Phosphatase in a Pregnancy Complicated by Uncontrolled Chronic Hypertension and Its Association With Placental Pathology

    Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme produced primarily by cells of liver, bone, kidney, small intestine and placenta, each detectable by a specific isoenzyme. It appears in maternal serum in the second trimester and increases progressively with gestational age.

Protective Effect of Metformin on Venous Thrombosis in Diabetic Patients: Findings From a Systematic Review
Despite the effects of metformin on cardiovascular diseases, there is limited evidence supporting its beneficial effects on venous thrombosis, and such evidence is not qualitatively synthesized both from observational and intervention studies, thereby limiting our understanding of the role of metformin in preventing venous thromboembolism (VTE).

Maternal and Childhood Diet and Human Type 1 Diabetes Risk
The incidence of type 1 diabetes is increasing worldwide for reasons which are incompletely understood. The objective of the study was to investigate the potential association of maternal and childhood dietary components to type 1 diabetes in a case-control retrospective study. Full Text

Mediastinal Mass as First Clinical Manifestation of Medullary Thyroid Microcarcinoma in a Patient With Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis
Medullary thyroid cancer is a rare neuroendocrine tumor with aggressive behavior and an uncertain prognosis. Calcitonin is the associated tumor marker; however, neuroendocrine tumors of the lung or intestine can also present high values. Full Text
