F A Levitskiĭ, Al'-Masri Akhmad


The authors have studied 103 patients with multiple fractures of the long bones of the upper extremities who have been treated at the basic clinic of the Department of orthopaedics and traumatology, at the clinics of the Donetsk Research Institute of Orthopaedics and Traumatology and at the regional traumatologic hospital during the past 15 years. The severity and the diversity of multiple injuries of the upper extremities were evident from the fact that in the 103 patients 220 segments were injured and there were 227 fractures. A classification of the injuries under study and the most rational methods of treatment have been worked out, which ensured positive results in most cases. They are supported by the analysis of the long-term results of the treatment which has been carried out in 61.16% (63) of the patients.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Synthetic Genetic Array Analysis

Synthetic genetic arrays allow the systematic examination of genetic interactions. Here is the latest research focusing on synthetic genetic arrays and their analyses.

Congenital Hyperinsulinism

Congenital hyperinsulinism is caused by genetic mutations resulting in excess insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
