The histopathological findings of the lung in covid-19 patients

The main pulmonary finding was diffuse alveolar damage in the acute or organising phases, rendering focal pulmonary microthrombi. The primary pathology observed was diffuse alveolar damage, with virus existing in the pneumocytes and tracheal epithelium. Microthrombi were rare and endotheliitis was n...

The immunological profile of covid-19 patients

 The interaction between COVID-19 and the immune system participates in the dysfunction of the immune responses and disease advancement. Antibodies against the spike protein could prevent COVID-19 from binding with the angiotensin - converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptor on host cells. Blocking AC...

The cytokine storm and its correlation with lung damage in COVID-19

Powerful cytokine production in patients with SARS-CoV2-induced pneumonia gives a practical exhibition and explanation of medical intervention. Most patients with SARS-CoV-2 infection expanded mild symptoms, whereas some patients later developed more serious disease symptoms, and eventually died bec...

The potential explanations for the milder COVID-19 presentation in children in comparison to adults

The children have a lower percentage of the cases, and less severe illness courses. Some possible explanations, including the tendency to catch and occupy the upper airway. Also, the different expression of receptors of angiotensin-converting enzyme and renin–angiotensin system. A less vigorous im...

Free radicals and their toxic metabolic effect

A radical is any molecule or atom that contains one or more unpaired electrons. Radicals are normal products of various metabolic pathways. Such interactions can cause both acute and chronic dysfunction, but can also provide essential control of redox regulated signaling pathways. The potential role...
