The popular myth about the possibility of mismatch of secretions and blood by the antigenic system AB0 has no basis.
Scientists from Keio University, Japan have discovered special acids in the microbiota of centenarians that protect the body from pathogens. Scientists from Sentara Hospital, USA have shown that the transplantation of a heart taken from a donor who died of an overdose does not increase the risk for the patient. Scientists from the University of Surrey, UK have applied a special algorithm to search for chemical compounds that prolong life.
Preliminary results show that no serious side effects were detected.
Even the second vaccination against COVID-19, unfortunately, does not give a reason to relax. Vaccinated people also get sick, but usually in a milder form: vaccines are effective and reduce the risk of developing a serious disease.
Last time we already talked about the effectiveness of psychotherapy. Studies show that it helps with mental disorders (for example, depression or PTSD). Another way to work with them is drug therapy. Someone believes that this is the only right way, someone, on the contrary, is afraid of drugs.
The UN Human Rights representative in Myanmar called this Southeast Asian country a possible super-distributor of COVID—19. Researchers from the University of Reading have shown that antibodies themselves are responsible for the formation of blood clots in COVID-19. Igor Tsikorin, a representative of the Moscow Department of Health, assessed the accuracy of PCR tests. Scientists from the University of Wyoming have found out what information can convince a person to get vaccinated. The head of the Yekaterinburg branch of Vector, Alexander Semenov, assessed the timing of the end of the coronavirus pandemic in the world.
According to a medical report, a lonely Japanese man almost died from masturbation.
It turns out that not only people can perceive quantitative information. Previously, it was found that tiny guppy fish, bees, as well as hyenas and dogs react to changes in the number of certain objects. Their skills are approximately at the level of a one-year-old child who will understand that there are fewer candies if mom decides to hide one. But the child will eventually learn to count, and the guppy fish will not. We find out why.
The Sars-Cov-2 pandemic has spurred the development of new types of vaccines. In the winter of 2021, the world's first vaccine on a peptide platform, EpiVacCorona from the Novosibirsk Vector Center, began to be used in Russia. We tried to figure out how to make peptide vaccines correctly – and how it was made in Vector. We publish step-by-step instructions.
As a rule, the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine is administered after 21 days, but there are cases when, for one reason or another, this cannot be done. How scary is it?
