Clinical imaging characteristics of inpatients with COVID-19 in Heilongjiang Province, China: a retrospective study

Hao JiangYongmei Pan


Objectjve: To investigate the clinical, laboratory, and radiological characteristics of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in Heilongjiang Province. Methods: The present study carried out a retrospective analysis of 59 patients with COVID-19, including 44 patients in the intensive care unit (ICU) and 15 patients in the non-intensive care unit. The characteristics of the two groups of patients were compared.Results: ICU care group was older and the incidence was higher than that of non-ICU group. Lymphopenia, neutrophils, and increased D-dimer levels were high-risk causes of COVID-19 patients. Compared to the non-ICU care group, the incidence of pulmonary consolidation and Ground-glass opacity combined consolidation in the ICU care group was significantly higher, all lung lobes were more likely to be involved, and the number of lung lobes involved was greater and the area around the bronchi was more likely to be involved. Of the 59 patients with COVID-19 in this group, 15 received mechanical ventilation. All the intubated patients involved lung lobes, and a large number of lesions were seen in the area around the bronchial vessels. Conclusion: Significant differences were observed in clinical symptoms, laboratory ...Continue Reading

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.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.

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.
