    Abstract In cell samples grown in a laboratory setting, the antiparasitic medication ivermectin has shown to be effective against SARS-CoV-2. This has peaked interest because it could possibly treat COVID-19. This study looks at the feasibility of ivermectin as a treatment for COVID-19. The dose needed to be effective against COVID-19 is likely too high for humans to use safely. Introduction As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, several possible drugs are being explored as a tre...

    Abstract This study was done to see if a disposable N95 mask can be sanitized and reused. Being able to reuse N95 masks would help with the shortage of masks for healthcare workers. Vaporized hydrogen peroxide, ultraviolet light, and ethanol were all tested as decontaminants. The best decontaminant was determined by how well the masks were decontaminated and how well the physical material of the masks held up, known as integrity. Introduction As we know, the SARS-CoV-2 has become a global ...

    AbstractMen and women appear to have different susceptibilities to (COVID-19). The S protein found on the surface of coronaviruses allows the virus to attach to the target (host) cell. After the virus is attached to the host, it will signal for a protein that modifies the S protein and allows the coronavirus to enter the cell. With higher levels of androgens (testosterone), the gene that codes for this protein is expressed more. This could explain why men are more susceptible to COVID19. In orde...

    Abstract  Minority ethnic and black individuals appear to be disproportionately affected by low vitamin D levels and COVID-19 infection. This study aims to establish if blood levels of vitamin D are associated with COVID-19 infection risk. UK biobank recruited 502,624 participants aged 37-73 years. Exposure data and blood vitamin D levels were acquired. The data was then cross referenced. Complete data was available for 348,598 UK Biobank participants. Only 449 participants had confirmed COVID-1...

    AimsThe authors aim to analyze characteristics and outcomes of patients with COVID-19. They analyzed the New York City Area to further understand the outbreak in the United States.IntroductionThe first COVID-19 outbreaks in the United States were in Washington State and California. Now, the United States has more infections than in Italy and China combined. New York City has the greatest population density, so New York has more than 30%% of the cases in the United States. New York also has mor...

    Abstract The purpose of this study is to discuss the effect of COVID-19 on the central nervous system (CNS). Databases were searched for relevant articles. Very little information is currently available. However, two studies provide documented data. The involvement of the central nervous system in COVOID-19 infections is largely unexplored and understudied. However, it is very likely that there is neurological involvement in severe patients. Introduction Coronavirus primarily targets th...

    Abstract: Respiratory infections such as Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) can spread through droplets, airborne particles, and aerosols from speaking, sneezing, or coughing. The spread of the virus can come from presymptomatic, asymptomatic, or symptomatic individuals.The CDC has recommended home-made cloth face coverings for the general public. N95 respirators are the gold standard. Currently they are in short supply and should be reserved for the medical professionals. There is ...

    AbstractThere are many existing hypotheses for the mechanism of DNA replication. There are three main models. The conservative model states that the parent DNA molecule remains completely intact. New DNA molecules are made of completely new strands. The semiconservative model states that each new DNA has one new strand and one parent strand. The dispersive model states that fragments of the parent are randomly passed on.Previous experiments used radioisotope labels to study DNA. In this experime...

    Abstract The researchers have developed a machine learning model called the Stability of Planetary Orbital Configurations Klassifier (SPOCK). This model can characterize thousands of planetary systems at once. SPOCK is much quicker and more efficient than former models. The former models based predictions off of angular momentum deficit and chaos. Researchers input the eccentricity of planet orbits, radial velocity, and transit duration into SPOCK. Then, SPOCK can predict how stable the planetar...

    Abstract     Social media has rapidly grown as a medium to disperse information. The popularity of social media has led certain movements such as veganism to become more visible to the average person. This exposure helps veganism to become more accepted by the mainstream. Despite this there is a lack of research on how to properly manage a vegan diet for athletic causes. The researchers of this study reviewed applicable research papers regarding vegan diets. There is little data regarding sp...
