Coronavirus can infect and inflame the thyroid – Health24

An Italian teenager may be the first known case of a painful thyroid infection caused by the new coronavirus, doctors report.

A research team from Pisa, in northern Italy, said the 18-year-old woman's thyroid became sore and enlarged a few weeks after testing positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus in late February. The condition, called thyroiditis, cleared up completely within a week after she was treated with the steroid prednisone.

Still, the doctors believe that "physicians should be alerted about the possibility of this additional clinical manifestation" tied to the new coronavirus, study leader Dr Francesco Latrofa, an endocrinologist at the University Hospital of Pisa, said in a news release from the Endocrine Society. He and his colleagues published the findings on 21 May in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

"Covid-19 continues to show us many surprises," said thyroid expert Dr David Hiltzik, director of head and neck surgery at Staten Island University Hospital in New York City. "It has been shown to manifest in so many different organ systems throughout the body, so it is not surprising that the thyroid joins the many other areas that have been affected by the disease.

Heart palpitations and neck pain

"Thankfully, thyroiditis can easily be treated and should not be of great concern," added Hiltzik, who wasn't involved in the new research. "That being said, if a patient had the virus and presents with new neck pain they should get that evaluated."

In the Italian woman's case, she first got a nasal swab test for the new coronavirus on 28 February because her father had been hospitalised earlier with Covid-19. The test turned up positive, but she experienced only mild, transient respiratory symptoms at first.

However, by 17 March she revisited the Pisa clinic with fever, heart palpitations and neck pain. The neck pain got worse and her thyroid gland was painful and enlarged, the doctors said.

Tests confirmed thyroiditis. The patient was given prednisone, which relieved the neck pain and fever within two days. Any other remaining symptoms subsided within a week.

Post-viral thyroiditis

Latrofa and his group noted that thyroiditis has been seen with a myriad of infections, including mumps, Epstein-Barr, hepatitis E and HIV, so its appearance with SARS-CoV-2 isn't completely surprising. But to their knowledge, this is the first such case tied to the new coronavirus.

Dr Minisha Sood is an endocrinologist at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. Reading over the findings from Italy, she said it was "a classic presentation of post-viral thyroiditis, which is characterised by the onset of neck pain, fever and high thyroid hormone levels".

Sood said because of the intensity of neck pain the woman was experiencing, her doctors prescribed prednisone. However, in milder cases, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory pain reliever is often prescribed first, with a steroid prescribed later if needed.

In any case, "as an increasing number of post-viral symptoms are being attributed to Covid-19 or complications of Covid-19 such as thrombotic [clotting] events, the potential of subacute thyroiditis should not be overlooked," Sood said.

Play: A joyful medicine – Public Affairs Office of Headquarters, US Army Combined Arms Support Command and Fort Lee

I have always been tempted to write a prescription that reads Go out and play just to see how the parent responds.

Turns out, there is no better time than this nearly three months into the social distancing, no public gatherings and shelter-at-home requirements to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to follow that exact recommendation.

As a pediatrician in Kenner Army Health Clinic, I have observed how this situation has not been ideal for people in general. They have been affected physically, emotionally, socially and economically. For children, there is another vulnerable plane, developmentally.

Lately, I have encountered an unusual number of TeleHealth concerns related to emotional, behavioral and developmental regression in youngsters. It is troubling to imagine the coronavirus mutating into a dreadful boogeyman that inflicts children with these mental health issues.

Its simple to beat the monster, though, with play which is defined in a 2018 American Academy of Pediatrics article as an activity that is intrinsically motivated, and entails active engagement and results in joyful discovery.It is not scripted play therapy, but genuine family activity that brings forth positive emotions while promoting child development and growth.

The Pediatric Journal magazine article further reads, When play and safe, stable, nurturing relationships are missing in a childs life, toxic stress can disrupt the development of executive function and the learning of prosocial behavior. In the presence of childhood adversity, play becomes even more important.

The article points out that age-appropriate play with parents and peers is a singular opportunity to promote the social-emotional, cognitive, language and self-regulation skills that build executive function and a prosocial brain which children need to thrive.

Research among preschoolers on the first day of school showed a twofold decrease in anxiety in medical terms, a reduction in the stress hormone salivary cortisol when randomly assigned to play intervention compared to listening to a teacher reading a story.

Laboratory scientists also have simulated the role of roughand-tumble play and learned that it can buffer symptoms of anxiety in animals that similarly showed a reduction in stress hormone that could be prolonged by the length and intensity of the activity level. The researchers observed increased brain competency in the subjects, witnessing the ability to solve mazes after two hours compared to the play-deprived group.

With the ongoing challenges of the pandemic, caregivers may want to invest in more meaningful play time with children, and while doing so, may even find themselves unexpectedly rewarded. By recreating their cherished childhood activities or sharing a favorite game with youngsters, some grown-ups may benefit from this renewed joy through a childs view. This benefit also is supported by a research.

Organized daily playtime at home during this pandemic may seem tiring to already stressed-out parents, but the rewards are worth the investment. Spontaneity is welcomed in this area and may surprisingly bring more fun. Encouraging children to plan the activity is a good tool for self-growth. Parents are not asked to be activity directors. Play should not be a dreaded chore and should never add more stress. And like any medicine, it should not be overdosed responsible adults have to work and rest, and children need downtimes as well.

With studies consistently showing the superior benefits of real-time social playing among young children, some limited age-appropriate screen time with parents co-watching or co-playing can be an occasional alternative. Play needs adult supervision because it can have a dark side when children are allowed to do as they please, leading to disagreements and even bullying. Homes should always be safe and nurturing a play hideout from the coronavirus boogeyman.

Playing is important for everyones well-being, and especially for the development of a young healthy child. While peer-to-peer play is almost impossible due to social distancing, families must strive together, more than ever, to create nurturing physical connections through playtime now; because playing is a medical necessity for children to thrive.

KC Concepcion says PCOS prevented her from accepting projects – Rappler

HEALTH REASONS. KC Concepcion says she been diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS, which has prevented her from accepting showbiz projects. Screenshot from Instagram/@itskcconcepcion

MANILA, Philippines Actress KC Concepcion said she had been scaling back in accepting showbiz projects after she was diagnosed with polycystic ovary syndrome or PCOS.

In an interview with Tim Yap on his online show on Saturday, May 23, KC was asked why she has not been seen on television or movies, despite signing with Cornerstone Entertainment back in February.

"I am super, super grateful for work. But number one... I want to be super open about this because its something I also want to talk about in the future. I was diagnosed with PCOS," she said.

PCOS, according to the Mayo Clinic, "is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age" which results in "infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels."

The condition is the reason why she gained weight, she said.

"I always wanted to be at my best, I want to be physically fit, and I want to look good, I want to get my body tight. When I look good, I feel good and thats what you serve people on screen. Its as simple as that, she said.

While she was on break, KC said that she was able to work on a lot of things, including her jewelry line Avec Moi. She is also set to revive KC's Closet to pre-loved items for charity.

KC said that she's been getting a lot of guidance with her PCOS thanks to her doctor in the US. I know a lot of women who have it. Its quite common in a way but not a lot of people talk about it. Thats something I want to talk about in depth later on in the future na because I dont think right now is the time. Wala pa ako masyadong information about it, she said.

(I still don't have much information about it.)

KC said she now ready to accept projects coming her way. Im super healthy now. Im so well. I take supplements, try to be as active as I can be."

Relationship with mom Sharon

In the same interview, Tim asked if KC has been in contact with her mom, Sharon Cuneta, and her family. KC is currently living by herself in her apartment .

KC said they've been checking up on each and that they've been sending each other food.

"That's our way of expressing our love is through gifts. I think my mom and I have the same love language, where we like to give each other gifts. I miss her, I love her so much. I think she is an amazing mom. At the end of the day, lahat ng nangyayari sa amin should stay in the family and just like any family, no one is perfect, she said.

(At the end of the day, whatever is happening in our family should just stay within the family and just like any family, no is perfect.)

Back in January, Sharon wrote a long post on social media, asking KC to come back to the family. The actress was not present during some of their holiday gatherings and Sharon's birthday celebration on ASAP.

Sharon told the media that the post was a case of a "mother missing her daughter."

The two have since ironed things out, with Sharon promoting KC's YouTube account in March.

KC said that like any other family, their relationship has not been perfect.

I dont really like talking about problems in public but people love us and have really welcomed us in their lives. I want to thank everyone that is there to support my relationship with my mom. Every day, you just want everything to be nice and light and happy, " she said.

"If there was time lost before, I think the most important thing is to both embrace each others imperfections and forgive and be loving towards each other. Thats the best we can do, she said.

Covid-19 isolates patients from loved ones at time of greatest need – STAT

Amy Sapien had prepared for her April 13 surgery as best she could. She dyed her long blond hair a bright pink. She got a tattoo on her right calf of what she jokingly calls her spirit animal Dory, the blue fish from Finding Nemo, whose answer to lifes challenges is to say, over and over, Just keep swimming. Still, she was overwhelmed by dread early that morning as she kissed her husband, Callen, goodbye outside the Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, Fla., and walked alone through the bright, empty lobby. Her hands shook as she stepped onto the elevator and pressed the button with her elbow.

Her mind was a jumble. Everyone seemed so eerily expressionless from behind their paper masks that Sapien wondered for a moment whether shed walked onto the set of an alien abduction movie. She had been imagining for weeks what it would be like to leave the hospital without her left breast. Now her mind turned to an even more urgent fear: What if she became infected with the coronavirus during her short stay?

Sapien tried to replace her anxious thoughts with fighting ones. The 40-year-old hospital social worker made Tom Pettys lyrics her mantra: You can stand me up at the gates of hell, she sang to herself as she felt her consciousness give way in the operating room. But I wont back down.

When she came to three hours later, she pushed aside her worries about the treatment and procedures she still faced, nibbled on Saltines, and sipped ginger ale to stave off the nausea she felt from anesthesia. Then she reached for her phone, and recorded separate video messages for her two young boys.

Her blue eyes glazed thick from painkillers, she addressed her 3-year-old son, Corben. Smiling reassuringly, she told him to continue his toilet training with his grandmother, and that shed be home soon. Then she spoke to 7-year-old Landen. Hey. Im OK. Im out of surgery, she said in a near-whisper. With her bandage peeking from her pink surgical robe, she told him that shed be home the next day, and that they would soon be able to watch movies together from the bedroom recliner. I love you, I dont want you to worry about me, Landen, she said. OK? Im doing really good. Bye, honey.

Then she tapped send. Landen watched the video from his own hospital room across town, where he was being treated for leukemia.

Amy and Landen, two generations fighting cancer, are united by something else: They are going through the most frightening and painful moments of their lives without the family warmth and support that was standard practice at the nations medical centers until Covid-19. The pandemics broad impact on cancer care in the U.S. is well-known: non-essential surgeries, biopsies, and scans delayed, and clinical trials disrupted. But its in stories like the Sapien familys that one sees the depth of the harm its causing.

Amy was able to schedule the mastectomy right away only because her cancer was spreading, but she couldnt have her second breast removed at the same time since it was deemed elective. Instead shell have to undergo general anesthesia, surgery, and painful rehab again. While her husband was allowed in the waiting room during her first worrisome mammogram and ultrasound in early March, Amy had to go alone for her biopsy and the MRI that confirmed the diagnosis. Then she went by herself to her surgery, and recovered in isolation.

I didnt see anyone I knew for 36 hours after having a part of my body amputated, she said. Worse, though, was her inability to be with Landen as he lay tethered to a machine delivering a platelet transfusion.

While both parents, and sometimes his grandparents, had been able to reassure him through previous chemotherapy treatments, this time only his father could be present.

Theirs is an experience shared by cancer patients across the country, as Covid-19 separates them from loved ones and family at their time of greatest need.

In the exact moment where we could have reached out for everything our support system could offer, Amy said, we were forced to retract completely into ourselves.

It was last June, a few weeks before Landens seventh birthday, that his grandmother Sandra Sapien noticed a swollen gland on his slender neck. The family had just moved from a nearby town and had not yet met their new doctors, so Amy took Landen to a walk-in clinic to rule out strep. The test was negative, but the doctor suggested following up with a pediatrician and asked if there was a family history of leukemia. No, Amy said, alarmed. None at all.

Days later, at an appointment with Landens new pediatrician, Amy mentioned what the urgent-care doctor had said and asked if he could run some blood tests. Its never cancer, he told her. He diagnosed Landen with tonsillitis, and prescribed antibiotics. Landen seemed fine at his birthday party, and wolfed down pizza and the massive chocolate Minecraft cake his grandmother had made.

The morning of June 29, the family drove to a pet store to pick out a fish for Corben. As he deliberated among the bright blue and red beta fish, Landen turned gray and collapsed. Thinking that hed had a bad reaction to the antibiotics, Callen rushed him to the hospital.

In just a few hours, the couple went from worrying about whether rain would spoil that evenings fireworks to confronting every parents nightmare. After doctors ran a battery of tests, the Sapiens learned that their son was one of 350 to 525 U.S. children diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia each year. Overall, 3,500, or 4.7 out of 100,000, are diagnosed annually with childhood blood cancers.

Leukemia? Amy recalls asking, incredulous. My brain wasnt even linking up what the word was.

As a young woman, Amy had struggled with anxiety, but finally everything had fallen into place. She and Callen, 36, a strategist at a business software company, had solid, steady careers. Together since their first meeting at a college-town coffee shop 17 years ago, they had just purchased their dream home. Id finally convinced myself there were no monsters under my bed, she said.

Now the doctors were hospitalizing their son, and had begun a 3 1/2 year regimen of in- and outpatient chemotherapy treatments that during some stretches required daily infusions.

Callens mother and stepfather, colleagues, and friends rushed to help, providing lunches, dinners, even breakfasts, so the family could focus on Landen and managing his hospital schedule. Amys co-workers donated sick leave.

The couple tried to make life as normal as possible for Corben; both continued working, and resolved never to show their fear to their son. Nobody ever got a trophy for crying on the floor for three years, Amy said.

Early this winter, news of the pandemic began to percolate. Because Landens treatments impaired his immune system, he was at risk for opportunistic infections. The family had initiated a series of precautions: limiting visitors; carrying hand sanitizer; washing every item that came into their house. We were acting as if Covid existed before Covid existed, Callen said. We were already being hypervigilant.

One evening in mid-February, the whole family was gathered on the couples bed watching Ninjago. Amy was leaning against Callens arm, which had fallen asleep. When she wriggled away to release it, her left breast grazed his hand. In that split-second touch, he felt something unusual and hard. Whats that? he asked. Amy padded her breast with her fingertips, immediately detecting a small mass.

Her mother had had breast cancer, and her grandmother had died of the disease. But they had drank and smoked, lifestyle behaviors that increased their risk. Amy had had a baseline mammogram at 33, and had tested negative for the BRCA genes that dramatically increase the risk of breast cancer. I thought I had an insurance policy against having to go through this, she said.

When she turned 40 in October, her doctor had recommended that she get a second mammogram. But she had told herself she would schedule it until after Landen had completed his first year of treatment.

Now she feared the worst. Landens diagnosis had been improbable. Could the universe betray them twice? Im scared, she told Callen.

Landen, hypersensitive to any health news, looked up. Why?

Amy reigned herself in. I couldnt cry in front of him after watching him be poked and prodded hundreds of times and never complaining. Its not fair to expect a 7-year-old to do what I cant.

I couldnt cry in front of him after watching him be poked and prodded hundreds of times and never complaining.

She was sitting at her work desk when a nurse practitioner called her cellphone with the biopsy results: She had invasive lobular cancer. Amy tried to write down the diagnosis on the back of an envelope. The words went into my ears, but they just werent registering, she recalled. How do you spell that? she kept asking. She hung up and burst into tears. Its not fair, she said to her office mate, who was trying to console her. Were good people. It was supposed to be benign.

In those early weeks of the coronavirus, hospitals were just putting in place social distancing rules to protect patients from infection. Family members were prohibited or sharply limited from joining cancer patients as they go from diagnosis to surgery, from chemotherapy to recovery.

Suddenly, the Sapiens could no longer turn to their community for help either. Their kitchen, in disrepair after a massive leak, had only a working hot plate, but they couldnt accept meals. Amy, who has a well of close friends, couldnt see them on weekend lunch dates.

Cancer remains the second-leading cause of death in the U.S., and 1.8 million people are diagnosed annually. Many end up with plans of treatment that last for months, if not years, that require regular surveillance and lifesaving but immune-suppressing drugs.

In her job, Amy has worked with a series of vulnerable populations, from the homeless to veterans to the elderly. As she lurched alone from procedure to procedure at Moffitt, she of course understood that barring patients partners reduced the chance of infections by half. But she also knew that family members play an important role in making decisions about treatment. Its so hard to absorb what youre hearing when youre the patient, she said. That second pair of ears is so important in cancer treatment.

Meanwhile, St. Josephs Childrens Hospital, where Landen was being treated, issued similar restrictions. In the past, we allowed parents, grandparents, even siblings to accompany patients during treatment, said Don Eslin, Landens pediatric hematology oncologist. Now they can only have one parent.

As recently as February, he said, it was common for families whose children were being treated for blood cancers to share stories and encouragement in cafeterias and the waiting room.

Now that support is reduced to a wave from behind a mask down the hallway, Eslin said.

Doctors, too, saw their routines upended in unsettling ways. Eslin must sometimes deliver bad news by phone, something he has always striven to avoid. This is adding complexities to cancer care in a way we never imagined, he said.

Catherine Lee, Amys surgeon, feels most the loss of connection with patients. Since the third week of March, she has only been able to make eye contact with her patients at one of the most terrifying moments of their lives.

A breast cancer diagnosis is so intimate, Lee said. We always want our patients to feel that we are giving as much as we can to them in terms of support and compassion, and to reassure them that were doing as much as we can for them.

From behind her mask, she can only offer supportive words. They cant see my smile. I cant shake their hands, and I certainly cant give them a hug, she said.

In their brief meeting, Lee and Amy discussed Landens situation, and how Amy needed to be back on her feet as soon as possible.

As Lee reflected on the case during a FaceTime call, she paused for a moment: You know something? I dont even know what Amy Sapien looks like.

For the past seven weeks, she said, about the only thing I see of my patients is their breasts.

Amy is recuperating, working from home to help veterans navigate the Covid-19 crisis. She is never far from her sons, and tells them every day how lucky she feels to be their mother. Landen is now in maintenance therapy, and his doctors have replaced his grueling chemo infusions with an oral drug. Some days, his second grade teacher drops by, and they shout to each other through a closed window.

Earlier this month, she got the news that she wont need chemotherapy, but will be on hormone suppression treatments for at least the next decade, and will go into rapid menopause. It is highly likely that she will need a hysterectomy.

Still, she tries to focus on what she can control. She oversees Landens home schooling, which he does by Zoom with his teacher. She watches the boys as they make up imaginary games with their Duplos, and swim in the backyard pool when Landen is well enough. The family just got a new puppy, a brown Bernedoodle named River. The Sapiens had promised a party and a puppy as a way to mark the end of Landens infusions, and what they hoped would be the resumption of a more ordinary life. The puppy adds chaos but also normalcy.

Although Amy and Callen have tried to shield the children from the news, the pandemic is nonetheless a constant backdrop. Sometimes Landen wonders aloud about whether the virus could kill him or everyone in the family. And he worries about his mother, telling her recently that he hoped she wouldnt have to get an infusion port like his. Amy tries to reassure him.

I tell Landen being brave isnt not being scared, she said. Its being scared and doing it anyway.

Doctors: Taking High Doses of Vitamin D Has No Effect on COVID-19 – The Beet

Doctors warn that taking high doses of Vitamin D has little or no effect on COVID-19, and they urge against taking more of the supplement than is recommended since it can have adverse health effects.

This update comes in the wake of people pounding down the D supplementsas a prophylactic measure, after learning that many patients with the worst symptoms and outcomesafter being diagnosed with COVID-19, have also been vitamin D deficient.

Countries, where COVID-19 cases have resulted in the highest death rates, are also those where more of the population has D deficiencies. Researchers across the globe have found thatthe sickest patients often have the lowest levels of vitamin D.These facts have led individuals who are not sick to start taking large doses of vitamin D.

There is a connection between vitamin D and respiratory illness, but that does not mean that overdosing is a healthy move. Expertsdo say that healthy blood levels ofvitamin Dmay give some protection against the worst symptoms if you do contractCOVID-19. One possible advantageis that vitamin D can help preventthe body from experiencing the so-called "cytokine storm," when the body'simmune systemoverreacts and attacks itsown cells and tissues, much like a histamine response to an allergen. But too much D is not beneficial.

In anew warning by doctors in the UK, researchers at Birmingham Universityare warning people to not overdose themselves with D to gain any potential benefits or edge against the virus. According to The Independent,a steady stream of patients are showing up at hospitalsin theUKhaving takentoxicdoses ofvitamin Dinsupplementsthey bought online. The pills that are poisoning them contain up to 2,250 times the recommended daily dose of D (which is 600 IU according to the Mayo Clinic) and this toxic level of D is putting patients at risk ofheartandkidneyproblems, according to theNHSlab, which said it sees two to three overdose cases every week.

Scientists from the UK, Europe and the US, including experts from the University of Birmingham, have published aconsensus paper warning against taking high doses of vitamin D supplementation.

According to the study,new research shows high levels of vitamin D provides little or no benefit in preventing or treating Covid-19. The study'sauthors advise that the population adhere to Public Health England guidance on supplementation.

Following unverified reports that high doses of vitamin D (higher than 4000IU/d) could reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19 and be used to successfully treat the virus, the new report published in the journal BMJ, Nutrition, Prevention and Health, investigated the current scientific evidence base on the vitamin and its use in treating infections.

Vitamin D is a hormone produced in the skin during exposure to sunlight and helps regulate the amount of calcium and phosphate in the body, which are needed to keep bones, teeth and muscles healthy.

Most of our vitamin D comes from exposure to sunlight, however for many people, particularly those who are self-isolating with limited access to sunlight during the current pandemic, getting enough vitamin D may be a real challenge. Supplementing with vitamin D ... should be done under the current UK guidance," saidProfessor Carolyn Greig, a co-author of the paper, also from the University of Birmingham.

Professor Judy Buttriss, Director General British Nutrition Foundation and a co-author of theresearch said: In line with the latest... guidance on vitamin D, we recommend that people consider taking a vitamin D supplement of 10 micrograms a day during the winter months (from October to March), and all year round if their time outside is limited.

Although there is some evidence that low vitamin D is associated with acute respiratory tract infections, there is currently insufficient evidence for vitamin D as a treatment for COVID-19 and over-supplementing must be avoided as it could be harmful.

Examining previous studies in this field, the scientists found no evidence of a link between high dose supplementation of vitamin D in helping to prevent or successfully treat Covid-19 and cautioned against over-supplementation of the vitamin, without medical supervision, due to health risks. Scientists concluded that assertions about the benefit of the vitamin in treating the virus are not currently supported by adequate human studies and are based on findings from studies that did not specifically examine this area.

Claims of a link between vitamin D levels and respiratory tract infections were also examined by scientists. Previous studies in this area have found that lower vitamin D status is associated with acute respiratory tract infections however limitations of the findings of these studies were identified. Findings from the majority of studies were based on data gathered from population groups in developing countries and cannot be extrapolated to populations from more developed countries due to external factors. Scientists believe that there is currently no firm link between vitamin D intake and resistance to respiratory tract infections.

Vitamin D toxicity, also called hypervitaminosis D, is a rare but potentially serious condition that occurs when you have excessive amounts of vitamin D in your body.

Vitamin D toxicity is usually caused by taking supplements not diet or sun exposure. Your body regulates the amount of vitamin D produced by sun exposure, and even fortified foods don't containenough vitamin D to worry about.

Too much D can lead to a buildup of calcium in your blood (hypercalcemia), which can cause nausea and vomiting, weakness, and frequent urination. Vitamin D toxicity can also leadto bone pain and kidney stones.

Treatment includes stopping vitamin D intake and restricting your calcium intake. Your doctor might also prescribe intravenous fluids and corticosteroids or bisphosphonates.

Doctors warn against taking anything more thanthe U.S. Recommended Dietary Allowance of 600IUof vitamin D per day.

An adequate level of vitamin D in the body is crucial to our overall health, too little can lead to rickets or the development of osteoporosis but too much can lead to an increase in calcium levels in the blood which could be particularly harmful,Professor Sue Lanham-New, Head of the Department of Nutritional Sciences at the University of Surrey and lead author of the study, said.

Levels of the vitamin in the body can also be supplemented through a nutritionally balanced diet including foods that provide the vitamin, such as fortified foods such as breakfast cereals, and safe sunlight exposure to boost vitamin D status.

Most. people can get enough vitamin D with about ten to 15 minutes of direct sunlight a day.

Do the Benefits of an IUD Outweigh the Potential Side Effects? – Health Essentials from Cleveland Clinic

Whether youre contemplating using an intrauterine device (IUD) as birth control or to curb the effects of a gynecological issue, you might wonder if the pros outweigh all the cons youve probably heard about. Heres what you need to know about IUDs, according to Ob/Gyn Ashley Brant, DO, MPH.

Cleveland Clinic is a non-profit academic medical center. Advertising on our site helps support our mission. We do not endorse non-Cleveland Clinic products or services.Policy

Both types work mainly by preventing egg fertilization, but keep in mind that IUDs dont protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs).

Despite the fact that modern versions are quite safe, IUDs still tend to get a bad rap. Dr. Brant often hears concerns from patients about migration, when the IUD moves through the uterine wall into the abdominal area. Even though it seems like almost everybody knows somebody to whom thats happened, its actually a pretty rare complication, she says. Migration can happen if the uterus is torn, usually by an instrument during IUD insertion; however, these uterine perforations only occur in 0.01 percent of cases.

Other serious complications from IUDs are rare too. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) occurs in just 1 percent of women within the first 20 days after insertion and in 0.5 percent in the first three to six months.

Then there are the uncommon side effects women report from the hormonal IUD like weight gain, hair loss, mood changes and acne. As of now, there isnt enough research to support or refute a definitive link between the two, Dr. Brant says. In fact, the low level of progestin released one-fifth of the amount found in combination birth control pills is tolerated well by the majority of women.

Dr. Brant asks her patients these 3 questions to help them come to a decision thats right for them:

Placing an IUD usually takes less than five minutes. To begin the insertion process, the doctor or nurse will likely feel your uterus to see which way it might be tipping. A speculum is placed, just like youd have for a Pap smear, and the cervix is washed off with soap.

You can expect to experience cramping three times, but only for a few seconds each time, says Dr. Brant.

Bicoastal startup Kriya Therapeutics to grow gene therapy manufacturing in NC – WRAL Tech Wire

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK Theres a new biotech company setting up shop in the Triangle, and its flush with cash and headed up by some big names in the industry.

MeetKriya Therapeutics the brainchild of Dr. Shankar Ramaswamy, former chief business officer for Axovant Gene Therapies; Fraser Wright, co-founder of Sparks Therapeutics; and Roger Jeffs, the former United Therapeutics CEO who has deep rootsinNorth Carolina.

Launched in 2019, the biotech startup has dual headquarters in Durham and Palo Alto, California, and is billing itself as a next-generation gene therapy company focused on designing and developing treatments for highly prevalent and severe chronic conditions, like diabetes and obesity.

Earlier this month, it arrived in a big way after securing $80.5 million in Series A financing during a pandemic.

Its never easy. But itsa really significant pool of capital for us so were thankful to have been able to get it done,Ramaswamy, Kriyas CEO, told NC Biotech in a video interview this week.[Our] investors have a very long term vision of what a next generation gene therapy company could look like, and were very supportive building towards that vision.

Fraser Wright, PhDScientific Co-Founder and Chief Scientific Advisor; Shankar Ramaswamy, MDCo-Founder, Chairman, and CEO; and Nachi Gupta, MD, PhDChief of Staff.

Among the investors: QVT, Dexcel Pharma, Foresite Capital, Bluebird Ventures (associated with Sutter Hill Ventures), Narya Capital, Amplo,Paul Manning, andAsia Alpha. The round followed an initial seed financing led by Transhuman Capital late last year.

Itsis amilestone for the company andsets us up for success to goout and execute on the things that we really want to get done.

Ramaswamy says the company is now ready to scale, and is focused on building out its teams on both coasts.

We expect to grow very quickly both here in the Bay Area and in North Carolina, he said, emphasizing the Triangles importance as its manufacturing hub. That could be dozens of employees [here] in the not so distant future, if not larger over time.

How it will work: co-founders Ramaswamy and Wright will be based in the Bay area along with finance operations and early-stage research.

Meanwhile, in Durham, co-founder Jeffs will lead a team focused on development and manufacturing. It will include Britt Petty, AveXis former head of global manufacturing and Melissa Rhodes, former chief development officer at Altavant Sciences; and Mitch Lower, another Avexis veteran.

I dont view North Carolina as a satellite office.Thats where well be building our internal manufacturing infrastructure to solve for one of the key bottlenecks in gene therapy,which is manufacturing capacity and quality, saidRamaswamy.

Theres a very strong pool of talent in North Carolina, especially in biologics manufacturing. And [our team] has a very strong track record and history of success with biologics manufacturing, and strong experience there as well. So we think its a great place to be, given the past couple of decades, where there have been so many successful products actually manufactured in North Carolina.

Already, Kriyahas a number of gene therapies in the pipeline.

Among them: KT-A112, an investigational gene therapy administered by intramuscular injection that delivers the genes to produce insulin and glucokinase for type 1 and type 2 diabetes;KT-A522, an investigational gene therapy administered by salivary gland injection that delivers the gene to produce a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist for type 2 diabetes and severe obesity; andKT-A83, an investigational gene therapy administered by intrapancreatic injection that delivers the gene to produce modified insulin growth factor 1 (IGF-1) for type 1 diabetes.

The team is currently set up in a temporary office in Durham, but plans to move intoamore permanent space somewhere in the Research Triangle in the near future.

Kriya is building a leading team and cutting-edge infrastructure to engineer best-in-class gene therapies for severe chronic conditions and accelerate their advancement into human clinical trials, saidJeffs, its vice chairman. Through its R&D laboratory capabilities in the Bay Area and in-house process development and manufacturing infrastructure inResearch Triangle Park, I believe that Kriya will be uniquely positioned to become a leader in the gene therapy field.

Double Trouble: Researchers Find Many Cancers Carry Two Mutations in the Same Gene – On Cancer – Memorial Sloan Kettering


It turns out that finding driver mutations may be more complicated than previously thought: Nearly a quarter of all tumors have two different mutations in the same gene.

A major effort in cancer research is the search for driver mutations in tumors. These mutations are changes in a genes DNA that play a direct role in the growth of cancer. They are different from passenger mutations, which are genetic changes found in tumors that dont have anything to do with the cancer: Those are just along for the ride.

Figuring out which tumor mutations are drivers is important because they help provide an understanding of how and why tumors grow. Identifying driver mutations also helps researchers design treatments and helps doctors predict how a persons cancer is likely to behave.

But according to a studypublished by Memorial Sloan Kettering researchers in Nature on May 27, the strategy of focusing on driver mutations may be more complicated than previously thought. It turns out that nearly a quarter of all tumors have two different mutations in the same gene that are contributing to the formation of an individual cancer.

Weve seen this phenomenon here and there before, but until now we had no idea how common it was, says MSK computational oncologist Barry Taylor, one of the studys two senior authors. The harder we looked, the more clearly we saw it.

MSK-IMPACT: A Targeted Test for Mutations in Both Rare and Common Cancers

MSK-IMPACT stands for integrated mutation profiling of actionable cancer targets. It is a targeted tumor-sequencing test available to MSK patients.

In every cell of our bodies, we have two copies of each gene. One comes from our mother and the other from our father. When one copy of a gene develops a mutation either by chance or due to exposure to something harmful like UV light, radiation, or tobacco smoke the other copy is there to potentially make up for the loss. If there is a mutation in the second copy, thats when trouble can start: If both copies of a gene are mutated, it can send the cell down the road toward becoming cancerous. These multiple mutations, also called composite mutations,were known to occur with a class of genes called tumor suppressors, where the double mutation effectively cripples the function of both copies of a gene and can lead to cancer.

But it turns out that another type of composite mutation that hasnt been well understood is much more common than expected: It occurs when two different mutations affect the same copy of a gene. Here, the two mutations work together to produce a mutant protein with new, unexpected functions. This situation can lead to the formation of oncogenic proteins those that drive cancer growth.

[MSK-IMPACT data is] well suited to doing this kind of detailed analysis.

In a way, were looking at a phenomenon thats been staring people in the face for a long time, says MSK computational oncologist Ed Reznik, the papers other senior author. I credit graduate student Alex Gorelick, who was working in both my and Barrys labs, with coming up with the idea to look at how common composite mutations are and what they may mean. Mr. Gorelick is first author on the Nature paper.

The team was able to make this discovery thanks to data from MSK-IMPACT, a diagnostic test that helps match people with cancer to the best treatment based on the genetic changes in their tumors. This test, which has been used since 2014, has now analyzed more than 50,000 tumors, giving researchers a lot of data to work with.

One special thing about MSK-IMPACT data is that its very deep and contains a lot more information than other sequencing platforms, Dr. Reznik says. That makes it well suited to doing this kind of detailed analysis.

Now that the researchers know about composite mutations, the next step is to determine what they might mean for individual cancers. One study that came out last year in Science, published by MSK cancer biologist Maurizio Scaltriti and colleagues, found that breast cancers with composite mutations in the gene PIK3CA may respond better to targeted therapy than breast cancers in which only one PIK3CA mutation is present.

However, with other cancers and other mutations, its possible that composite mutations may make them harder to treat.

This gives us a tremendous opportunity to look at the function of these mutations in a different way.

Theres still so much we dont understand about composite mutations. Rather than creating frustration, knowing of their existence leads to new opportunities, concludes Dr. Taylor, who is an Associate Director of the Marie-Jose & Henry R. Kravis Center for Molecular Oncology. This gives us a tremendous opportunity to look at the function of these mutations in a different way and learn something fundamental about cancer genes that we may not have appreciated before.

What Sanofi Might Buy With Its Regeneron Windfall – Barron’s

Text size

Sanofi is about to have $11.7 billion burning a hole in its pocket. What might it buy?

Days after the French drug giant announced that it would sell its stake in the biotech company Regeneron Pharmaceuticals (ticker: REGN), speculation is growing on whether the company might pursue an acquisition or two in the coming months.

Sanofi (SNY) has not said what it plans to do with the proceeds of its sale of 21.6 million shares of Regeneron. In a statement, the company said it would use the proceeds to further execute on its strategy to drive innovation and growth.

Still, Sanofis new CEO, Paul Hudson, said in December that the company would consider future deals: We are open-minded and interested, he said at the time. In January, Sanofi completed the acquisition of the cancer drug developer Synthorx for $2.5 billion.

Sanofi appears to be taking advantage of the strong liquidity in biotech equity markets, and in REGN in particular, to accelerate the implementation of their strategy, and we do not expect them to sit on their new capital, SVB Leerink analyst Geoffrey Porges wrote in a note on Tuesday.

Porges suggested that the company could be looking for a gene therapy company to acquire.

We certainly expect a M&A deal of decent size ($5bn) in the coming months for Sanofi, he wrote.

In another note Tuesday, Citi Research analyst Mohit Bansal wrote that the gene therapy company BioMarin Pharmaceutical (BMRN) was an unlikely target for Sanofi. Bansal said that BioMarin does not fit with previous comments from Sanofi about their acquisition interests, noting that the company has indicated a preference toward smaller companies, and away from the crowded hemophilia gene therapy race in which BioMarin is a lead contender. BioMarins market value is $18.8 billion.

Gene therapy companies with market value closer to the $5 billion range include bluebird bio (BLUE), which has a market value of $3.6 billion, and Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical (RARE), which has a market value of $4.4 billion.

Sanofi had some $10.3 billion in cash and cash equivalents on hand as of the end of 2019. The company did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Troubleshooting the Development of New Gene Therapies – Technology Networks

Gene therapy does more than treat genetic diseases it can cure them. A one-time dose of a non-replicative viral vector, such as commonly used recombinant adeno-associated virus (AAV), delivers a functional gene to replace or compensate for a dysfunctional version that is causing a patients disease (Figure 1). As a cutting-edge biopharmaceutical technology, there are multiple gene therapies now FDA approved; with hundreds more in clinical trials, were likely to see many more of these therapies on the market soon.1 However, to keep up with the rapid pace of clinical research, developers are working to streamline the manufacturing and quality control process to improve quality and lower the cost of bringing these important drugs to market.Developers use a multitude of analytical tests to develop gene therapies and optimize their manufacturing process. When developers get aberrant test results, they must be able to interpret where the problem lies. Did the manufacturing process produce an undesirable product, or is the analytical testing method unreliable? Analytical testing companies that have the infrastructure, personnel, and experience often partner with developers to tighten up analytical variability so that results of tests clearly indicate where there are opportunities to increase efficiency and product quality.

Figure 1. Gene delivery by recombinant viral vector.During gene therapy, viral capsids containing the therapeutic gene are taken up by the patients cells and the genetic material is delivered to the nucleus. There, the gene gets expressed as a protein necessary for the patients health. Credit: Avomeen.

Figure 2. A full AAV capsid and associated capsid impurities. Complete viral capsids have AAV are assembled from 60 capsid proteins, with a defined stoichiometry and shape and contain a therapeutic gene. AAV vector impurities include capsids that contain too many copies of the gene (overfilled), those that contain lower copy numbers or truncations of the gene (partially full), or empty capsids that contain no genetic material. Credit:Avomeen.

There are several ways to measure the empty/full capsid ratio, and as developers are establishing their chemistry, manufacturing and control (CMC) protocol, it is important that they choose an optimized method, as they must use that method for effective quality control from early process development to lot release and stability.3 Gene therapy developers may choose analytical ultracentrifugation to evaluate capsids, but while highly effective, this method is not as quantitative, robust or efficient as some newer methods. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using AAV full/empty analytical columns have been demonstrated to be highly effective at separating full, empty, and improperly filled capsids for robust quantification. Additionally, this method is higher throughput than ultracentrifugation, and requires less precious AAV sample to run.

Cellular potency is evaluated by transducing cells with the AAV product and then measuring a phenotypic or functional outcome due to the transduction. Developing these tests can be challenging because there is no one-size-fits-all test that will give developers the answers they need. Developers often draw on the experience of analytical labs to determine how to best evaluate their AAV products transduction efficiency.A gene therapy in development must also be tested to ensure that it is free of residual, process-related impurities such as polyethylenimine, iodixanol, poloxamer, and other excipients that must be removed in the final product to ensure safety. Few research and manufacturing facilities have the equipment and expertise necessary to perform this kind of testing, and it is advisable to find one that has experience testing polymers, extractables and leachables to examine if components of the manufacturing equipment or drugs packaging are not contaminating the final product.

As fast-paced as the gene therapy field is now, it stands to become a true race to the finish line to bring new gene therapies to market in the near future. Regulatory bodies are becoming more familiar with reviewing gene therapies, and the road to commercialization will move more quickly. There is no denying that gene therapies will bring incredible benefits to patients, but it will be crucial to improve manufacturing efficiency and lower costs to make gene therapies more accessible to the patients who need them.References

MiNA Therapeutics Announces Publication of Phase I Liver Cancer Data in Clinical Cancer Research and Provides Update on Clinical Development and Drug…

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MiNA Therapeutics, the pioneer in RNA activation therapeutics, announced today the publication of data from its Phase I liver cancer trial, OUTREACH, in Clinical Cancer Research. It is the first publication in which a small activating RNA treatment (MTL-CEBPA) demonstrated clinical benefit. In addition, the Company provided an update on its ongoing clinical trials for lead program MTL-CEBPA and its drug discovery programs.

This landmark publication in Clinical Cancer Research details for the first time that RNA medicines can activate gene expression, providing clinical benefit to patients, commented Robert Habib, CEO of MiNA Therapeutics. As we enter into the second half of 2020, we continue to advance our clinical development objectives and uncover the vast opportunities inherent in our unique drug discovery pipeline.

Publication and OUTREACH Study Update

The publication in Clinical Cancer Research summarizes the results from MiNAs Phase I, open-label, dose escalation and dose expansion trial of MTL-CEBPA, OUTREACH, in adults with advanced Hepatocellular Carcinoma (HCC). Overall, MTL-CEBPA was well-tolerated and demonstrated pharmacodynamic target engagement, meeting the primary endpoint of the study. Furthermore, a reduction of suppressive immune cells in the tumour microenvironment as well as initial signs of potential synergistic efficacy when combined with standard of care tyrosine kinase inhibitors in HCC could be observed. These encouraging Phase I data validate the targeting of C/EBP- as a novel therapeutic strategy in cancer and prompted a Phase Ib study further evaluating MTL-CEBPA in combination with sorafenib in HCC. Enrolment for the Phase Ib part of the OUTREACH trial was completed in Q1 2020 and initial results will be presented during a poster session at the forthcoming American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) on Friday, May 29, 2020. The framework for a subsequent Phase II clinical trial is currently being designed with the objective of initiating this next stage of clinical development in the second half of 2020.

The full Clinical Cancer Research publication is available on the Publications page of MiNAs website. A similar overview of the Phase I data was most recently presented at the European Society for Medical Oncology (ESMO) in September 2019.


In March 2020, TIMEPOINT, a global Phase I/Ib clinical study of MTL-CEBPA in combination with anti-PD1 checkpoint inhibitor pembrolizumab in patients with advanced solid tumours was initiated and the first patient was treated. The study is designed to assess the safety, tolerability, pharmacology and clinical activity of MTL-CEBPA in combination with pembrolizumab in these patients. Recruitment for the study is expected to continue through 2021.

Discovery Programs

In parallel to the clinical trial developments, MiNA is further expanding its drug discovery pipeline with a focus on developing new drug candidates that can address a range of indications including genetic and metabolic diseases. Most recently in January 2020, MiNA validated its metabolic disease capabilities through the entry into a research collaboration with AstraZeneca, a global leader in the discovery and development of prescription medicines to treat metabolic diseases. MiNA remains well-positioned to build out its early-stage pipeline based on its saRNA approach which, through transcriptional activation, enables the modulation of previously undruggable targets.


MTL-CEBPA is the first therapy to specifically up-regulate CCAAT/enhancer binding protein alpha (C/EBP-), a transcription factor that acts as a master regulator of myeloid cell lineage determination and differentiation. Dysregulated myeloid cells have been implicated in several diseases and identified as a critical barrier for many therapies to induce clinical responses in solid tumour cancers. In pre-clinical studies MTL-CEBPA has been shown to improve the anti-tumour activity of cancer therapies by targeting dysregulated myeloid cells and reducing their suppression in the tumour microenvironment.
