The government in England recently announced lifting of plan B measures amidst ongoing Covid-19 cases, that makes mask wearing not mandatory, dropping of work from home and no requirement by law of showing of COVID vaccination pass to attend...
Evidences so far suggest that Omicron variant of SARS-CoV-2 has high transmission rate but fortunately is low on virulence and is not usually leading to severe symptoms of COVID-19 disease or deaths. But existing vaccines seem to be less...
One of unusual and most intriguing feature of heavily mutated Omicron variant is that it acquired all the mutations in a single burst in a very short span of time. The degree of change is so much so that some...
Molnupiravir, the world’s first oral drug (approved by MHRA, UK) against COVID-19 along with upcoming drugs such as Paxlovid and sustained vaccination drive has raised hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic may end soon bringing life back to normalcy. Molnupiravir (Lagevrio) is a broad-spectrum...
Herd immunity for COVID-19 is said to be achieved when 67% of the population is immune to the virus through infection and/or vaccination, whilst the pathogen remains well-characterized (unmutated) throughout transmission in the population that is well-characterized. In the...
A recent study suggests that combining a high load resistance exercise for a muscle group (such as relatively heavy dumbbell bicep curls) with a low load exercise (such as very light weight dumbbell bicep curls for many repetitions) is...
There is no clarity on the natural origin of SARS CoV-2 as no intermediate host has been found yet that transmits it from bats to humans. On the other hand, there are circumstantial evidences to suggest a laboratory origin...
The B.1.617 variant that has caused the recent COVID-19 crisis in India has been implicated in increased transmission of the disease among the population and poses a significant challenge with respect to disease severity and effectiveness of currently available...
Molnupiravir, a nucleoside analog of cytidine, a drug that has shown excellent oral bioavailability and promising results in Phase 1 and Phase 2 trials, could prove to be a magic bullet acting as an anti-viral agent against SARS-CoV2 in humans. Major...
The causative analysis of the current crisis in India caused by COVID-19 can be attributed to various factors like sedentary lifestyle of the population, complacency setting in due to the perception of pandemic being over, predisposition of Indian population...
With the advent of COVID-19, there seems to be a negative selection pressure working against those who may be genetically or otherwise (due to their lifestyle, co-morbidities etc.) predisposed to develop severe symptoms, ultimately leading to death. Majority of...
There are overwhelming evidences to confirm that the dominant route of transmission of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) is airborne. This realisation has significant implications for fine-tuning of strategies to manage the pandemic, particularly in terms of importance...
Routine sero-surveillance of the population to estimate presence of antibodies to COVID-19 is required to understand the development of herd immunity in a population. Data from the sero-surveillance study of population in the Ischgl town of Austria throws light on this aspect...
Advanced age and comorbidities are known to be high risk factors for COVID-19. Does genetic make-up predispose some people making them more susceptible to severe symptoms? Conversely, does genetic make-up enable some people to have innate immunity making them...
In the practice of medicine, one generally prefers time tested proven path while treating and trying to prevent diseases. An innovation is usually expected to pass the test of time. The three approved COVID-19 vaccines, two mRNA vaccines and...
Coronaviruses are not new; these are as old as anything in the world and are known to cause common cold among humans for ages. However, its latest variant, the ‘SARS-CoV-2’ currently in news for causing COVID-19 pandemic is new.   Often,...
Hunter gatherers are often thought of as dumb animalistic folks who lived short, miserable lives. In terms of societal advancements such as technology, hunter gatherer societies were inferior to modern civilized human societies. However, this simplistic perspective prevents individuals...
The hard work performed by the scientists lead to limited success, which is measured by peers and contemporaries by way of publications, patents and awards. As and when the success happens, it directly benefits the society in terms of...
A combination of biological and computational approach to study protein-protein interactions (PPIs) between the viral and the host proteins in order to identify and repurpose drugs for an effective treatment of COVID-19 and possibly other infections as well The usual...
Social interaction and vaccination both contribute to development of herd immunity however development of herd immunity as a result of social interaction is directly proportional to the number of secondary infections that arise from the primary cases. Herd immunity...
The book presents a scientific and philosophical examination of our place in the world. It reveals the journey mankind has made from the philosophical enquiry of the early Greeks to how science has profoundly influenced our conception of existence. 'Science,...
Scientific European publish significant advances in science, research news, updates on ongoing research projects, fresh insight or perspective or commentary for dissemination to general people. The idea is to connect science to society. The scientists can publish an article...
Experiments on mice cells shows a new mechanism pointing towards potential benefits of coconut oil in managing Alzheimer’s disease Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive brain disorder affecting 50 million people worldwide. No cure has been discovered yet for Alzheimer’s; some...
A review of previous trials shows that eating or skipping breakfast may not have any impact on a person’s health Breakfast is well believed to be the “most important meal of the day” and time and again health advice recommends...
Research shows that neutralizing antibodies which are induced by vaccination can protect animals from HIV infection. Developing a safe and effective HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine, despite up to 30 ongoing clinical trials, is a challenge faced by research community...
