Scientists have learned that cell death can be reversible

Necrotic cell death in the human body can be reversed in the future. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago have discovered a mechanism in cells that regulates this process, and predict that it will soon be possible to take control of it. Pyroptosis, a type of cell death, is usually caused by infections and leads to excessive inflammation in the body. It is observed in sepsis, certain types of cancer, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), which is one of the main complications of COVID-19, and other diseases. For a long time, this process was considered irreversible. The GSDMD protein is involved in pyroptosis. This phosphoprotein forms large pores with a diameter of approximately 21 nm in the plasma membrane to control cell death. Scientists have created a unique method of tracking this process by “highlighting” it from the inside. Observation of the protein showed that its pores respond

Experts predicted a “twindemia” in Europe due to the return of the flu

Due to strict restrictions, the flu virus almost completely disappeared in Europe last winter, but this year it is returning at a much faster pace, Reuters reports, citing data from the EU medical regulator. This process raises concerns about a double epidemic or “twindemia”, especially since this year the most dangerous strain of the H3A influenza virus is circulating for the elderly. According to the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), since mid-December, influenza viruses have been circulating in Europe at a higher than expected rate. In December, the number of flu cases in European intensive care units steadily increased, reaching a peak of 43 patients in the last week of the year. This is significantly lower than the level that was before the pandemic, for example, in 2018, the number of weekly flu cases in intensive care units reached more than 400. But this is more than

Ginzburg announced the development of a test for neutralizing “omicron” antibodies

“We have a test system for determining virus neutralizing antibodies to omicron, but it is only available at our center so far,” Ginzburg said. Earlier, Ginzburg told RIA Novosti that he himself was infected with omicron, but was not ill, thanks to the protection of the Sputnik V vaccine. It was possible to establish this precisely thanks to this test system, which showed a high level of virus neutralizing antibodies to omicron.

Expert: the spread of the omicron strain to the regions will take from two weeks

“From two weeks. Quickly, because the holidays ended with the fact that Omicron was brought to us from 20 countries. There were leading countries from which more or less were brought, but they scattered everywhere. Now importation from abroad is no longer a key source, there is a spread of infection within the country, the strain has appeared in the population. There is a case in Rostov-on-Don, where a child and a mother who did not go anywhere got sick at the same time,” the expert answered the question of when the new strain will reach the regions. Gorelov added that airborne transmission of infection speaks for itself. In addition, according to the expert, the omicron strain is gradually replacing the delta strain in Moscow, the Moscow Region and St. Petersburg. He noted that as they approach the Far East, the delta strain circulates, since it reached these regions late.

Day in History: January 18

Discovery of the Hawaiian Islands The Hawaiian Islands remained unknown to the inhabitants of Europe for many centuries. Native Hawaiians, who belonged to a Polynesian family, lived here for 14 centuries before the appearance of European navigators. At the end of the XVIII century, the English navigator James Cook was looking for a strait that would shorten the way from Europe to Asia. In December 1777, on the ships Resolution and Discovery, he sailed from Bora Bora and on January 18, 1778, discovered the islands of Oahu and Kauai, which are part of Hawaii. When the Europeans came ashore, the locals fell on their faces, mistaking them for gods. Cook named the Sandwich Islands after his friend and patron, the first Lord of the British Admiralty.
