Covid-19, Malaria, Diabetes, Obesity and Eosinophils

February 8, 2021 - 15:44 -- Pierre Lutgen

An increased number of scientific papers confirm that diabetes causes an increased risk in the mortality and severity of COVID-19. However, the mechanism is not entirely clear. Understanding the relationship between COVID-19 and diabetes could advance therapeutic measures, but there is a scarcity of data on the matter.

Gina Dube, an advanced practice clinical pharmacist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts suggests that impaired immune systems make individuals with diabetes more susceptible to severe infections.

P. vivax: important new data on homologous recurrences

February 7, 2021 - 09:03 -- Miles Markus

Here is something of fundamental malariological interest:

A past suggestion is that both early and late homologous recurrences of Plasmodium vivax malaria can have a non-circulating merozoite origin [1–4].

There is now revealing new (February 2021) evidence which supports this idea. Some post-28-day recurrences that took place during a recent study appeared to be recrudescences rather than relapses [5]. Thus, it seems likely that a combination of the two types of recurrence can occur after 28 days.
