We just published as preprint our RCT on convalescent and vaccinated plasma.
Importantly the trial showed that in a selected group of patients with hematological and oncological malignancies, SARS-Cov-2 antibody containing plasma is a effective…
In fact, it not only reduced time to discharge from the hospital (primary endpoint) but also survival (secondary endpoint). While these results should be confirmed in a separate study, the effect size is convincing.
Note that the study confirmed findings of other studies, that showed no effect in unselected elderly patients and patients with laboratory findings suggesting higher risk of severe disease.

#Layer2 Scaling is a concept that is used in the #Ethereum communities with some believing it represents $ETH future.

What does this truly imply? 🤌🏼

How does it operate and why do we need it? 🧐

Today we will deep dive into non-custodial solutions ⬇️
1/ Over the past years, #Ethereum popularity has resulted in a massive rise in transactions and, therefore, #network traffic.

With several users competing for faster #transaction processing, a bidding war occurs, resulting in very expensive gas fees for each user.
Once new scaling solutions arise in the #blockchain space, it is always necessary to consider:

- how much they inherit #Layer1 #security and network characteristics

- if they impose stricter user requirements compared to the underlying #Layer1

What saved my brother when all hope was God was #plasma. He responded to the 1st unit given to him & the 2nd one got him off oxygen support. Many suffering under this strain have recovered with/after #PlasmaTherapy. Is this coz there's a shortage? #COVID19 #CovidIndia @PMOIndia
Making #PlasmaTherapy illegal is liking tying the hands of our docs & telling them to save lives. Are you trying to kill people? First no oxygen supply & now this!

I ask you, is it harming anyone? Are there any sideeffects? The ministry talks like they have it all figured out.
Shortage of a medicine in the market doesn't render it unnecessary as the govt would have us believe. It doesn't have to be a miracle cure. First, rem's not needed (now DRDO will save us all). Then, why Delhi needs more 02 than Mumbai (asked in SC. new, more virulent strain?!)

Delhi High Court will today continue hearing petitions to deal with issues arising out of #COVID19 in the national capital.

Hearing to take place before Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli.


@CMODelhi @LtGovDelhi
We've come across an order granting bail.. we'll point out the lacuna : adv Praveen K Sharma mentions.

We're not going to look to bail ... scrutinize the judgement: Court


Sharma says a note on oxygen concentrators has been given.

We understand that Surpreme Court matter is not there. If all parties are here, we can take it : Court

So you become #COVID Positive, What's Next?

For answers, watch our webinar and post if you have any other questions/doubts on #COVID19 here👉
I think there is a greater responsibility on patients too.

Doctors say, 80% effort has to be from patients. If a patient does not follow #COVID19 protocols/instructions given by Doctor, panics then it will be more difficult

#StayHome, do not go outside unless absolutely necessary, do not challenge the administration - it is one of the social service which we can do during this time

"Plasma is Sunil Gavaskar"
-sharing my personal experience on Plasma treatment in Covid19

Nov-20, My mother-in-law was admitted in ICU in a Delhi Hospital. Doctors were asking us daily to arrange Blood Plasma from ex-Covid patients for a possibility of recovery 1/n @Harneetsin
She was on ventilator and We had treating Doctors telling us Daily to arrange Blood Plasma as the only hope for a recovery as things were not improving, For them they have tried everything except Plasma, so we need to get it anyhow for a possible recovery 2/n @SufiyanaSoul
Since my father was on Ventilator too in Jaipur, my brother-in-law was running around entire Delhi to arrange for plasma as only hope. Plasma center was 2.5hrs drive from Hospital. Thru his office network My Brother-in-Law arranged for many donors, but none worked. 3/n @vicramb

L'Asst di Mantova annuncia i risultati dello studio 'Rescue' sul trattamento con plasma iperimmune dei pazienti Covid anziani residenti nelle Rsa. Il lavoro è stato pubblicato su 'Mayo Clinic Proceedings: Innovations, Quality and Outcomes' e presentato oggi alla stampa.
"Sono stati identificati 22 residenti con Covid-19 di grado moderato/severo - riferiscono dall'Asst - e sono stati trattati precocemente con unità di plasma iperimmune ad alto titolo. Il plasma si è dimostrato sicuro (non si sono riscontrate reazioni avverse)

#Plasma from recovered #COVID19 patients with high levels of #antibodies appeared to delay / stop progression of illness in mildly ill older adults infected with #SARSCoV2, a study published in @NEJM concluded. 🧵…
Researchers at Fundacion INFANT in Buenos Aires, #Argentina, led the small randomized, controlled, double-blind #clinicaltrial of the effects of infusing #convalescent #plasma in 160 older adults within 72 hours of symptom onset, half of whom received the treatment.
The patients were either 75 years and older with or without underlying illnesses, or 65 to 74 years with at least one underlying condition. The trial was stopped early because #COVID19 cases substantially declined in #BuenosAires, precluding continued recruitment.

@DrOliverKaram talks to us about plasma products @WFPICCS #wfpiccs20 #PedsICU

Not all plasma products are created equally: some still have residual cells, and some are better than others...
When is plasma indicated?

Major trauma is a clear indiction.

But use in prophylactic head injuries seems to worsen development of lesions

Use of plasma products in children is associated with multiorgan dysfunction - do you really need to give this?

So why are #plasma products given?

You can see some children given just to correct INR - not that big a change obtained overall, but the higher the INR at transfusion the bigger the effect.

It's condemnable the way Punjab govt has handled #COVIDー19, with @capt_amarinder trying to manage it through remote from the comfort of his farmhouse. CM's #MissionFateh is mere propaganda. Punjab is losing 100 lives a day & has surpassed Maharashtra & Gujarat in fatality rate. Image
#Congress govt's own health advisor Dr KK Talwar has indicted it for not conducting contact tracing & failure to manage micro-containment zones. Health minister @BalbirSinghMLA should take responsibility instead of attributing the high mortality rate to Punjabis' lifestyle.
CM needs to take the bull by its horns to contain the damage. All critical care centers must be upgraded immediately. The poor must be treated without charge; testing & #plasma treatment must be stepped up to win back people's trust in govt med institutes to reduce fatality rate.

1. two weeks ago,we published #PlasmaFiles, an international investigation coordinated by @TheSignalsNetw (English)… We asked some basic questions to the Italian health authorities: they are NOT replying at all
2. in Italy and in most countries around the world (except US, Germany etc),donating #plasma is a pure act of generosity:donors do have the right to know whether #plasma machines are completely safe.Italian health authorities at @MinisteroSalute and @CentroSangue refuse to reply
3. I worked on the #PlasmaFiles investigation partnering with 7 international media: they asked questions to their national health authorities and got answers. Italian health authorities at @MinisteroSalute and @CentroSangue are silent Image
