In the cohort involving 201 patients with confirmed COVID-19 pneumonia, risk factors associated with the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and progression from ARDS to death included older age, neutrophilia and organ and coagulation dysfunction. Recently, accumulating evidence suggests that a subgroup of patients with severe COVID-19 might have a cytokine storm syndrome and hyper inflammation. [1,2]

Given the theory that molecular hydrogen can significantly down-regulate expressions of inflammation-related genes and selectively reduce hydroxyl radical, there are reasons to believe that cytokine storm

Root Canal Procedure for Infected Tooth Nerve: Purpose, Procedure, Recovery

Root canal therapy is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or infected.

Root canal therapy is performed when the pulp which is composed of nerves and blood vessels in the tooth becomes infected or damaged. During root canal therapy, the pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.

People fear root canals because they assume they are painful. Actually, most people report that the procedure itself is no more painful than having a filling placed. The discomfort experienced in the period leading up to seeking dental care is truly painful, not the procedure itself.

What Is Dental Pulp?

dentalpulpThe pulp or pulp chamber is the soft area within the center of the tooth and contains the nerve, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The tooth’s nerve is in the “root” or “legs” of the tooth. The root canals travel

Temple will take over Cancer Treatment Centers of America’s Philadelphia location | Tribune

Mar. 26—Temple University Health System has agreed to buy the Philadelphia location of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, the two organizations said Thursday. The price was not disclosed.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a private for-profit. Temple said it will convert the Juniata Park location into a nonprofit. The deal includes buildings, equipment, and supplies.

Michael A. Young, president and chief executive of Temple University Health System, said the acquisition will give Temple office space to replace what was lost in a fire last year. The deal will also provide room to spread out clinical programs that are now crammed into Temple University Hospital, and it offers a good chance to hire many of the 350 cancer center employees who generate high patient satisfaction scores.

“This gives us clinical opportunity, close enough to Temple that will allow us to eventually move some programs over there,” Young said. It could

Bill Gates Is Right About SPACs and QuantumScape

Bill Gates appeared on CNBC on Good Friday to discuss his climate-related work for the Economic Club of New York. The conversation veered off into the wild and wooly world of special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs). Gates, an early backer of QuantumScape (NYSE:QS) and QS stock, suggested that people do what he’s doing and only get involved with quality SPACs. Source: Paolo Bona / Shutterstock.com The assumption here is that QuantumScape is such a company. Is he right? I’ll explore this subject further. It Helps to Own QS Stock If You’re a Billionaire If you bought 100 shares of QuantumScape stock on three occasions in 2021: Jan. 6 ($63.03), Feb. 17 ($66.52), and March 22 ($64.29), a back-of-the-napkin estimate suggests you’ve got a paper loss of $35,134, 26% less than the $19,384 you would have paid for 300 shares.
