The authors report on follow-up of 754 patients (among them 713 patients aged over 50 years) with hip fracture, treated in the National Institute of Traumatology, in 1990. Excess mortality in a year amounted 23% of cases. One third (254) of the injured survived after 5 years, current health condition of 199 out of them has been evaluated in a questionnaire type survey. Analysis of results according to age, sex and fracture type was made. Definite correlation has been observed with the age, the increase being parallel to it, while age-specific mortality is higher in men. Again, mortality was higher in trochanteric fractures. On analyzing the patients' condition from the aspect of using walking aids, walking ability and complaints, particularly the high rate of painfulness differed from the literature data, though inadequate rehabilitation, already stated before, is reflected in other indicators, too. In addition to the improvement of early rehabilitation, based on their own results the authors emphasize, that further care of patients with complaints is also of great importance.

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.

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.
