New Guidance: American College of Physicians Discusses Antibody Response in COVID-19 Immunity

Because of the novelty of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19, there is not enough evidence to determine whether antibodies produced after exposure are protective against reinfection. As such, the American College of Physicians (ACP) published rapid, evidence-based living practice points in the Annals of Internal Medicine discussing the role of antibodies in, tests for diagnosing,

Venous Thromboembolism Management in Patients With COVID-19

The severe systemic inflammatory processes and hypercoagulability occurring with COVID-19 illness increase the risk for atherosclerotic plaque disruption and acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Patients with a previous history of coronary disease and/or other significant comorbidities are particularly predisposed to cardiovascular complications with COVID-19 infection.1 In this installment, we will discuss a patient with COVID-19 and

Potential Drug Interaction Between Warfarin, COVID-19 Treatment Reported

A probable drug interaction was observed in 2 patients taking warfarin who were initiated on remdesivir and dexamethasone for the treatment of COVID-19, according to a case series recently published in the Journal of Pharmacy Practice. The patients, a 71-year-old man and a 62 year-old-man, both on long-term warfarin therapy, presented to the emergency department

Inflammatory Heart Disease Prevalence in Professional Athletes With Prior COVID-19 Infection

Among professional athletes who have tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19 infection 0.6% had imaging findings suggestive of inflammatory heart disease that resulted in restriction from participation, according to a screening protocol based on American Heart Association (AHA)/American College of Cardiology (ACC) guidelines, researchers reported in JAMA Cardiology. In May 2020, a number of

Vitamin D Supplementation May Lead to Small Risk Reduction for Acute Respiratory Infections

Vitamin D supplementation may safely reduce the overall risk for acute respiratory infection compared with placebo, but the risk reduction is small and the relevance of these findings to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is unknown and requires additional investigation. This is according to research published in Lancet Diabetes Endocrinology. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, interest

Patients With Underlying Medical Conditions Now a Priority for COVID-19 Vaccination

In March, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it would prioritize all patients with diabetes for COVID-19 vaccinations—a decision that was applauded by the American Diabetes Association which sought to reverse a previous guidance that didn’t prioritize all diabetes patients. “The updated recommendation is a welcome change for the nearly 1.6

Plant-Based Vaccine Manufacturing for Influenza, Implications for Future Vaccines

Currently, the development of vaccines for influenza and other viruses typically relies on egg-based manufacturing. This approach, and the newer technique of vaccine production in cell cultures, carry the risk of mutations that may reduce the efficacy and immunogenicity of the vaccines. Additionally, there are ongoing needs for greater production speed and capacity to enable
