Post-COVID-19 Syndrome


Posted: 2021-10-15 19:00:00
Background: Since the beginning of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, many individuals have reported persistent symptoms and/or complications lasting beyond 4 weeks that is now called post-COVID-19 syndrome. SARS-CoV-2 is a respiratory coronavirus that causes COVID-19, and injury to the lungs is expected; however, there is often damage to numerous other cells and organs, leading to an array of symptoms. These long-term symptoms occur in patients with mild to severe COVID-19; currently, there is limited literature on the potential pathophysiologic mechanisms of this syndrome. Objectives: The purpose of this integrative review is to summarize and evaluate post-COVID-19 syndrome from a biological perspective. Methods: An integrative review was conducted using Whittemore and Knafl's methodology literature published through August 30, 2021. The PubMed, CINAHL, and Web of Science databases were searched for articles published as of August 30, 2021, using combinations of the following keywords: post-COVID-19 syndrome, post-SARS-CoV-2, long COVID-19, long COVID-19 syndrome, and pathophysiology of post-COVID-19. Data were analyzed using the constant comparison method. Results: The search generated 27,929 articles. After removing duplicates and screening abstracts and full-text reviews, we retained 68 articles and examined 54 specific articles related to the pathophysiology of post-COVID-19 syndrome. The findings from our review indicated that there were four pathophysiologic categories involved: virus-specific pathophysiologic variations, oxidative stress, immunologic abnormalities, and inflammatory damage. Discussion: Although studies examining the pathophysiology of post-COVID-19 syndrome are still relatively few, there is growing evidence that this is a complex and multifactorial syndrome involving virus-specific pathophysiologic variations that affect many mechanisms but specifically oxidative stress, immune function, and inflammation. Further research is needed to elucidate the pathophysiology, pathogenesis, and longer-term consequences involved in post-COVID-19 syndrome.

地球上の生命の起源についてRNAワールド説を打ち破る新発見が報告された。

カリフォルニア州ラホーヤにあるスクリプス研究所の化学者は、生命が地球上でどのように発生したかについての新しい見方を支持する驚くべき発見をした。ドイツ化学会誌のアンゲヴァンテ・ケミーに2020年12月15日にオンラインで公開された研究によると、生命が生まれる前に地球上に存在していたと思われるジアミドホスフェート(DAP)と呼ばれる単純な化合物が、デオキシヌクレオシドと呼ばれる小さなDNAビルディングブロックを化学的に編み合わせて原始DNA鎖にした可能性があるという。この発見は、過去数年にわたる一連の発見の最新のもので…
