‘No benefit’ in hydroxychloroquine virus treatment: Two studies

first_imgIn the first study released Friday, researchers in France monitored 181 patients hospitalized with pneumonia due to COVID-19 and who needed oxygen. Eighty-four were treated with HCQ and 97 were not.They found no meaningful difference between the groups for either transfer to intensive care, death within seven days or developing acute respiratory distress syndrome within 10 days.”Hydroxychloroquine has received worldwide attention as a potential treatment for COVID-19 because of positive results from small studies,” said the authors of the research, published in the BMJ journal.  “However, the results of this study do not support its use in patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 who require oxygen.”A second study saw researchers in China split 150 COVID-19 patients in to two groups, one of which received HCQ.After four weeks tests revealed similar rates of sustained infection among both groups, though adverse reactions to treatment were more common in the HCQ group.  Nor did the severity or duration of symptoms differ between each group.Hydroxychloroquine and a related compound chloroquine have been used for decades to treat malaria, as well as the autoimmune disorders lupus and rheumatoid arthritis.Last month the European Medicines Agency warned that there was no indication HCQ could treat COVID-19 and said some studies had seen serious and sometimes fatal heart problems in patients. Treating COVID-19 patients with the malaria drug hydroxychloroquine (HCQ) had no positive effect and caused other health complications, two new studies showed Friday.The anti-inflammatory has been touted by US President Donald Trump among others as a potential “game changer”, after initial studies in lab settings showed it may be able to prevent the virus replicating. But several subsequent studies — including one funded by the US government — appear to have doused hopes that HCQ can help patients hospitalized with COVID-19. center_img Topics :last_img read more

Rome conclave: Cardinals fail to elect pope in first vote

first_img Share Share Sharing is caring! 38 Views   no discussions Tweetcenter_img FaithInternationalLifestylePrint Rome conclave: Cardinals fail to elect pope in first vote by: – March 12, 2013 Smoke coming from the Sistine Chapel chimneyCardinals of the Catholic Church have failed to elect a new pope on their first day in the Vatican conclave.Black smoke rising from a chimney above the Sistine Chapel indicated that their ballot had been inconclusive.The 115 cardinal-electors will vote four times daily until two-thirds can agree on a single candidate.The election was prompted by the surprise abdication of Benedict XVI. There is no clear frontrunner to take over from him as head of the Church.The vote was the first held by the cardinals since they entered the conclave on Tuesday afternoon, and was not expected to produce a positive result.Crowds who had braved rain and storms to watch the start of the conclave on big screens in St Peter’s Square cheered as the black smoke appeared.The electors will now return to their hotel for the night and go back to the chapel on Wednesday morning to resume voting.White smoke from the chimney will indicate that a new pope has been chosen.Pope Benedict’s resignation and the recent damage to the Church’s reputation make the choice of the cardinal-electors especially hard to predict, the BBC’s James Robbins in Rome says.The 85-year-old Benedict stepped down last month, saying he was no longer strong enough to lead the Church, which is beset by problems ranging from a worldwide scandal over child sex abuse to allegations of corruption at the Vatican Bank.IsolationAt 16:30 local time (15:30 GMT) on Tuesday, 115 cardinal-electors – all under 80, as those over 80 are excluded – entered the Sistine Chapel, chanting the traditional Litany of the Saints.Each man in turn stepped up and placed his hands on the Gospel to swear an oath in Latin.Afterwards Msgr Guido Marini, papal master of ceremonies, called out the words “Extra omnes” – “Everybody out” – and the chapel doors were locked to outsiders.From now on the cardinals will eat, vote and sleep in closed-off areas until a new pope is chosen.Jamming devices in the Sistine Chapel should block all electronic communication and anyone tweeting would in any case risk being excommunicated.Earlier on Tuesday the cardinals attended a “Mass for the Election of the Supreme Pontiff” in St Peter’s Basilica. In his homily, the Dean of the College of Cardinals, Cardinal Angelo Sodano, praised the “brilliant pontificate” of Pope Benedict and implored God to grant another “Good Shepherd” to lead the church. Benedict – now known as Pope emeritus – resigned on 28 February after eight years in office, citing ill health. He was the first Pope in six centuries to do so.As Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger in 2005, he was the marked favourite ahead of the conclave and was elected pope after just four rounds of voting. The vote for his successor is expected to take much longer. After 10 general congregations open to all cardinals, regardless of age – at which 160 cardinals spoke of the issues facing the Church and the qualities needed by its next leader – no clear frontrunner has emergedBBC News Sharelast_img read more

Treñas: No livelihood or houses for Badjaos

first_img“I really do not know what to do withthem here. But we are coordinating with the Department of Social Welfare andDevelopment and Philippine National Police paranga they do not become a danger to themselves,” he added. The Badjaos themselves disclosed to the PSTMOthat they were being taken for granted by their local governments and this waswhy they were looking for other areas where they could earn a living, headded./PN In fact, added Treñas, the citygovernment is still scouting for additional relocation sites. Hataman, the last governor of the AutonomousRegion in Muslim Mindanao, had criticized the city government’s plan to roundup Badjaos. “Angakon ya, we have to protect also Iloilo City,”said Treñas. BEGGING FOR HELP.Carrying a baby, a Badjao beggar knocks on the window of a vehicle stuck in traffic in Barangay Ungka, Jaro, Iloilo City. The city government plans to transport back to Sulu all Badjao mendicants. Also called “sea gypsies”, many Badjaos have been displaced by decades of conflict in Mindanao. IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN He defended his administration’sposition that it is much better for the Badjaos to return to their places oforigin in Mindanao. The other day, Public Safety andTransportation Management Office (PSTMO) chief Jeck Conlu denied that theBadjao beggarss were being contemptuously banished from this city. Treñas previously requested the policeand National Bureau of Investigation to verify reports that criminal syndicatescould be behind the proliferation of Badjao beggars here. According to Conlu, the one that shouldprimarily address this are the local governments of the places where theBadjaos came from. They should help their people, he stressed.center_img “I don’t have anything against HouseDeputy Speaker Mujiv Hataman but you know, we take care of our own people. Wemake sure no one gets hurt here,” the city mayor stressed. In fact, he said, “During our rescueoperations, ga-request sila nga buligan balik sa ila origin.” Badjaos here are known to climbjeepneys and beg money from passengers. “Diinmo sila paistaron diri? They have to goback to where they came from. This is also for the safety of their children. Wedo not even allow our Ilonggo children to roam around,” said Treñas. “Kon may maipit sa ila sin-o manabat?” While the security concerns vis-à-visthese Badjaos are manageable, Treñas said many Ilonggos, especially jeepneypassengers, have been complaining that the beggars would threaten or badmouththem if they refuse to give money. They were in fact being rescued fromthe streets where they’re exposed to danger, according to Conlu. “Unahonnaton nga hatagan sang livelihood kag balay ang taga diri gid. Kadamo pa kitagani sang backlog,” said the mayor. ILOILO City – The city governmentwon’t be providing livelihood to mendicant Badjaos or giving them houses. Thepriority for these programs are the poor residents of this city, stressed MayorJerry Treñas.last_img read more

Hooker Harness joins fight against COVID-19

first_img“This has been a big change for us because most of what we do is heavy duty sewing,” McPhil­lips said. “Most of our staff brought in their personal sewing machines to work with the lighter materi­als.” With shortages of Personal Protective Equipment reported around the country, McPhillips said everyone at Hooker Harness was ready to step in and help. “We’d rather be at the track but we’re happy to be able to do this,” he added. “It’s been quite a community effort.” FREEPORT, Ill. – A company that’s in the safety business every day has diversified its product line to support emergency personnel on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Hooker Harness has begun manufacturing fabric masks for the Stephenson County Health Depart­ment, for use by local Emergency Management Services.  In its sixth season of IMCA sponsorship, the Freeport, Ill., custom seatbelt and shoulder harness manufacturer has already completed several hundred masks.

Aguero inspires City victory

first_img Kane continued to prove a threat, hitting wide of far post, as did Aguero. The Argentina international held his head in his hands after referee Andre Marriner waved away his appeal for a penalty, having claimed to been caught by Federico Fazio after being allowed through by an uncharacteristic slip from Lloris. Nabil Bentaleb fired wide as the end-to-end theme continued, with Aleksandar Kolarov’s challenge denying a fierce Dier strike before City scored a fine goal on the break. Hart started the move by quickly delivering the ball to David Silva, whose fine, weighted through ball was met by Aguero and rifled past Lloris at his near post. It was a classy goal and one which Fernandinho attempted to add to soon after, with his low shot denied by Danny Rose’s interception. Lloris could only parry Aguero’s strike through a crowd, before the Argentinian linked up with Silva and Fernandinho struck wide. Pochettino’s men rode their luck but would have been level at the break was it not for Hart, who impressively spread himself to stop Ryan Mason converting from close range. Play resumed after half-time at a far calmer tempo, although Kane came close to livening it up. The striker’s strength allowed him to get a close-range shot away, but Hart denied him a 21st league goal of the campaign. This was fast becoming a tale of two strikers and Aguero could have taken the game away from the hosts shortly afterwards, taking a touch past Lloris only to fire into the side-netting. Milner saw a powerful effort blocked and Kolarov tested Lloris with a dipping, swerving drive in-between substitute Roberto Soldado’s coming close to directing home a cross. Kolarov produced a timely block when the Spaniard next threatened, before City broke and Zabaleta had appeals for a penalty ignored. Lloris saved with his feet as Kolarov again threatened as the match entered the final 10 minutes, with Paulinho heading inches wide, unaware the offside flag had been raised. The substitute soon had another chance, forcing Hart into action, with the England international denying Lamela’s acrobatic stoppage-time effort to secure victory. Their fight to retain the title had realistically ended several weeks back but Chelsea’s rubber-stamping meant a reaction was required at White Hart Lane, especially having lost their last four league games on the road. It was a run Mauricio Pochettino’s men looked like they could extend as Eric Dier and Harry Kane threatened early in an end-to-end first half in which City made the breakthrough as Aguero ended a counter-attack with a 10th goal in seven league games against Spurs. This was an enjoyable, open affair in which Joe Hart’s impressive display helped City secure victory, leaving them on the brink of a top-four finish and almost certainly extinguishing Spurs’ hopes of Champions League qualification. This was an eighth defeat in nine Premier League matches against City and one few could have imagined after Pochettino’s side started so well. Only a timely block from Pablo Zabaleta prevented Nacer Chadli playing in Erik Lamela after 90 seconds, with Dier allowed to head wide from the resulting corner. Eliaquim Mangala breathed a sigh of relief after the England Under-21s defender failed to capitalise on the space afforded to him, with Kane soon firing wide after more poor play by the defender. When City belatedly jolted into life, there was an audible gasp inside White Hart Lane as Aguero – so often the scourge of Tottenham – struck a fine, audacious volley over. Hugo Lloris had to be alert to deny a James Milner cross-shot as City upped the ante, with Frank Lampard hitting a wayward half volley as both sides’ defensive frailties were highlighted. A poor 2015 has seen Manuel Pellegrini’s side go from title challengers to facing the prospect of potentially missing out on Champions League football. That disaster has been almost certainly averted, though, after continuing their fine form against Tottenham, with Aguero securing a 1-0 win just hours after City were dethroned as English champions. Press Association Manchester City may no longer be able to call themselves Premier League champions but at least the indignity of missing out on the top-four has almost certainly been avoided after Sergio Aguero inspired them to victory at Tottenham.last_img read more
