Drug Controller General of India has given approval to the first fully indigenously developed Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Conjugate Vaccine. This is the first indigenously developed vaccine in the field of #pneumonia

This vaccine has been developed by M/s. Serum Institute of India Pvt. Ltd, Pune. @SerumInstIndia first obtained the approval of DCGI to conduct Phase I, Phase II & Phase III clinical trials of Pneumococcal Polysaccharide Conjugate #Vaccine in India
Earlier the demand of such #vaccine was substantially met by licensed importers in the country since the manufacturers were all vaccine companies based outside India.

1-So as most of you know, we published in @NEJM this week. This was so important for us for many reasons but fist a recap/summary of the…
2/In low resource settings, WHO recommends standard of care for management of common illnesses in non-school going children. These illnesses include diarrhoea, pneumonia, malnutrition ; among others.
3/ Pneumonia is commonly called ARI ( acute respiratory illness) and classified into no, mild or severe pneumonia. For our study we decided to study mild pneumonia.

1/ How neglected is Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome research?

@NIH funding for ME/CFS in 2017 was ~$25mill

Fair funding relative to disease burden should be ~$350mill

That means #MECFS research was short-changed by $325,000,000 (14-fold!) in just ONE YEAR
2/ Buckle up!

@CenterRes analysis found that even though the disease burden of #MECFS was double that of HIV/AIDS, #AIDS research received ~$5billion in 2017

Thats a 20-fold shortfall, amounting to ~$4,975,000,000 lost #MECFS funding in just ONE YEAR!
3/ And, the graph below shows that #MECFS research is woefully underfunded compared to similarly burdensome diseases

Note: the vertical Y-axis scale on the graph is logarithmic

So #IBS and #pneumonia actually receive 10x MORE funding than #MECFS

Over the past week I’ve been getting so many calls from friends all over asking me to diagnose if they are #COVID infected. Honestly I’m no doctor but just an early test mule on the virus. My Q&A typically ranges as follows. I hope it helps some of you from needless paranoia.
1/n First thing to iron out is the difference between #regularflu Vs #COVIDflu. I’ve done some research and found this helpful table for you guys. 90% of you have just a regular flu owing to seasonal changes. Don’t panic ! However if you’re in the 10% read on.
2/n Assuming all your symptoms are #COVID in nature immediately #homequarantine in a separate room. Testing is hard to get by in #MaharashtraBachao #Delhi so don’t bother waiting for your turn. Begin treatment for novel Corona while taking care of not infecting others around

Kali ini saya tidak ingin membahas "the new normal life". Silakan baca di media. Saya hanya ingin share, seberapa beratkah COVID-19 pada anak? Dr Anna Zimmermann, dokter anak ahli neonatologi di Amrik menceritakan kisah putranya yang diangkat @nowthisnews
Dr Anna menceritakan putranya, Lincoln, yang sempat dirawat karena sesak napas akibat COVID-19, di blog-nya @LittlesMighty… dan diangkat ke media, seperti @BBC @CBS dan @ABC Lincoln mengalami #pneumonia karenanya.
Masih berpikir COVID-19 ringan pada anak?
Apakah #pneumonia itu? Yakni peradangan di jaringan paru, akibat kuman masuk dari saluran napas atas ke bawah. Salah satu ISPA (infeksi saluran pernapasan akut) bawah. Penyebabnya bisa virus, bakteri, jamur. Virus SARS-COV2 adalah penyebab pneumonia COVID

I am incredibly excited and humbled that the @US_FDA has approved trials of the drug my lab discovered (@pulmotect PUL-042) to fight #COVID19 #pneumonia in diagnosed patients (NCT04312997) and exposed #HealthcareWorkers and contacts (NCT04313023).
This has taken herculean effort by the @pulmotect team to get through the regulatory steps and by the @MDAndersonNews team to prepare for implementation.
A special thanks to all Evans Lab members, past and present, members of the Dickey lab, and the MD Anderson Department of Pulmonary Medicine, as well as all of our colleagues, collaborators and supporters. I truly think this will benefit people, and you all contributed critically

Starting a series on clinical Pearls I am gathering in #COVID19 patients based on experiences of many experts

Will add as we go along

Feel free to add your own observations/experiences

#covidclinicalpearls /1
Anosmia is likely the most specific #COVID19 related symptom
30% of patients have anosmia as their 1st symptom
#covidclinicalpearls /2
Around 90% of patients have fever.
50% maybe afebrile at the time of presentation
Fever tends to be very resistant to routine measures in hospitalized patients
There is no consensus that NSAIDs are to be avoided in #COVID2019 patients

Lessons from past #coronavirus & #influenza #epidemics suggest that #viral #infections can trigger acute coronary syndromes, arrhythmias, exacerbation of heart failure owing to a combination of a significant systemic inflammatory response plus localized vascular inflammation.
#COVID19 may either induce new cardiac pathologies &/or exacerbate underlying cardiovascular diseases. A large proportion of patients have underlying cardiovascular disease &/or cardiac risk factors. Factors associated with mortality include male sex, advanced age, comorbidities.
Acute cardiac injury determined by elevated high-sensitivity #troponin levels is commonly observed in severe #COVID19 cases & strongly associated with mortality. Acute respiratory distress syndrome is also strongly associated with mortality in patients with #SARSCoV2 infection

The EW Vax Smackdown Series

The Most Destructive Vax Ever: MMR

A Tweet Series By EW

Somebody should have warned the Trojans. Beware of gifts bearing Greeks.
- David Gerrold, A Matter 4 Men

There are poisons that blind u, & poisons that open your 👀s.

- August Strindberg

As of this writing, per the Vax Adverse Events Reporting (VAERS) database set up by the federal government, there have been 481 💀s & 98,874 acute reactions to some combo of MMR (M alone, MR alone, R alone, etc). Per a federal study, less than 1% of vax reactions r reported..


The provaxxers will say but we had many more measles 💀s annually when the MMR vax debuted in 1971. Stand alone measles, mumps, & rubella vax’s had been previously licensed in 1963, 1967, & 1969 respectively.

So let’s investigate these claims.

THREAD: The #nCoV2019 #CoronavirusOutbreak is a signal-to-noise problem. Signal = #coronavirus. Noise = cough/cold/#influenza/#flu/#pneumonia. How do you pick up the signal when there's so much noise?
Reduce the noise! Get your #flushot #influenza vaccination. If you're over 65 (or have other reasons to be high-risk), get your #pneumonia shot. It'll make it easier to detect #nCoV2019 #coronavirus and control #CoronavirusOutbreak.

I have decided to reconvene the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee on the new #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) tomorrow to advise me on whether the current outbreak constitutes a public health emergency of international concern.
Most of the 6000+ new #coronavirus cases are in #China – just 1%, or 68 cases, have been recorded to date in 15 other countries. But some person-to-person transmission in 3 countries outside of 🇨🇳 has been recorded. This potential for further global spread is why I called the EC
The vast majority of new #coronavirus cases have been recorded in #China. Most cases reported outside are in people with a travel history from 🇨🇳, or have been in contact with people who have been there. But there are some signs of person-to-person transmission outside 🇨🇳.

#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus #WarWatch
On Dec 30, 2019, Chinese authorities confirmed cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in Wuhan, Hubei Province. A team of national experts was sent to carry out detection tests. Patients at a local seafood market were put in quarantine.
#Coronavirus #WuhanOutbreak #ChinaVirus
Liu Youning, a professor of epidemiology and respiratory medicine, told the Global Times that the #coronavirus found in #Wuhan appears to be far less serious than the virus that caused the severe acute respiratory syndrome (#SARS) or the Middle East respiratory syndrome (#MERS).
