Posted: 2021-11-17 20:00:00
Background: The COVID-19 pandemic has profoundly affected the lives of the global population. Objective: To explore anxiety and stress in relation to COVID-19 among young adults, and the potential influence of asthma and allergic rhinitis. Methods: This cross-sectional study included 1,644 participants from the population-based birth cohort BAMSE, participating in a follow-up at 24 years of age and a COVID-19 follow-up conducted in August-November 2020 (mean age 25.3 years). Anxiety and concern related to COVID-19 were analyzed as general anxiety, concern of own health and health of family members, and contact with online healthcare providers due to concern about COVID-19. Stress was measured with the perceived stress scale (PSS-10). Results: Around half of the participants reported increased anxiety due to COVID-19 and this was more common among females (57.0%, compared to 42.6% in males, p<0.001). Young adults with asthma reported more concern about their own health (adjusted odds ratio (adj OR): 1.50, 95% confidence interval (CI): 1.12-2.02) and perceived stress (adjusted regression coefficient (adj β): 1.49 CI: 0.52-2.45) compared to peers without asthma, and this was more pronounced among females and those with uncontrolled asthma. Symptoms of allergic rhinitis were not associated with increased concern or anxiety in relation to COVID-19. Conclusion: Young adults with asthma experience more COVID-19 related health concerns, compared to those without asthma; especially females and participants with uncontrolled asthma This needs to be considered in the care of young people with asthma.

新型コロナウイルスがin vitroで心臓細胞に感染することが最近の研究で判明

米国のシーダーズ・サイナイ病院による新しい研究で、 COVID-19 を引き起こすSARS-CoV-2(新型コロナウイルス)が心臓細胞に感染する可能性があり、COVID-19患者の心臓細胞が直接感染する可能性があることが示された。 2020年6月25日にCell Reports Medicineのオンラインで公開されたこの発見は、iPS細胞技術によって生産された心筋細胞を使用して行われた。この論文は、「ヒトiPSC由来の心筋細胞はSARS-CoV-2感染の影響を受けやすい(Human iPSC-Derived…
