This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"SARS-CoV-2 is the notorious virus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic. Like other viruses, it coexists with a multitude of other microorganisms that could influence our susceptibility to infection. Thus, identifying associations between bacteria and SARS-CoV-2 could lend critical insight for the development of strategies for COVID-19 prevention and treatment. To meet this need, researchers recently characterized the microbial communities associated with COVID-19 patients, health care providers, and indoor surfaces in the hospital environment using 16S rRNA sequencing. They found SARS-CoV-2 RNA on 16% of the surfaces in COVID-19 patient rooms, with the highest prevalence in floor samples and lower prevalence on bed rails. SARS-CoV-2-positive samples had higher bacterial diversity than SARS-CoV-2-negative samples. Interestingly, bacteria in the genus Rothia were commonly found in the samples containing SARS-CoV-2, suggesting the existence of an association between these microorganisms..."

Evolocumab found to be safe and effective at reducing cholesterol in Chinese patients with type 2 diabetes

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"According to a new study, the cholesterol-reducing drug evolocumab plus a moderate-intensity statin dose was effective in Chinese patients with both type 2 diabetes and hyperlipidemia or mixed dyslipidemia. China has the highest diabetes burden of any country in the world. And as is the case for Western populations, diabetes is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease in Asian adults. The primary target for treating such patients is reducing low-density lipoprotein, or LDL, cholesterol. While statin therapy is recommended globally, research suggests that statin-related adverse reactions occur at higher rates among Chinese patients. The inability to achieve the recommended LDL levels in Chinese patients might therefore be related to statin intolerance or underuse of statins due to the risk of adverse events..."

Mining image data to better characterize cancer

The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Whether it be MRI, CT, or PET scans, nearly every cancer patient undergoes some form of imaging. These images provide important information about the location and stage of tumor growth and can, therefore, inform treatment strategies. But recent advances in Artificial Intelligence make it possible to mine these images for even more data. This emerging field, called ‘radiomics’ aims to utilize the full potential of medical images by extracting high-dimensional data to objectively characterize and monitor individual tumors. Many current cancer-detection and diagnostic techniques rely on invasive approaches such as tissue biopsies. But these practices have both high risk and high cost. Radiomics, on the other hand, offers a promising method to gather important information about tumors -- such as size, shape, and texture -- in a non-invasive and often cost-effective manner..."

"Inhalable medications for patients with asthma and COPD can be confusing for patients and prescribers alike. The sheer variety of devices alone makes choosing the right one difficult. But among the different types currently available, one that’s proven highly valuable for nearly all patients with asthma or COPD is the dry powder inhaler. In an article recently published in the journal Advances in Therapy, researchers discuss how dry powder inhalers work, what makes them stand out, and what patients and prescribers should look for in a device. The active drug in dry powder inhalers is composed of microparticles loaded onto larger carrier particles. The inhalers’ unique internal design converts patient’s inhalation into shear forces that deagglomerate the drug particles from carriers. The drug particles are transported deep into the lung, while the larger carrier particles cling to the back of the throat and are eventually swallowed. This reliance on a powdered formula is a desirable feature..."
