"The awards can be viewed at S co l l dot or GE. This is morning edition from NPR News. I'm Rachel Martin and I'm David Green. Scientists are working at a record breaking pace to develop a covert 19 vaccine, but it likely won't be available for many Americans until at least next summer. In the meantime, scientists are looking for something that's already in their tool box that could slow the spread of the disease. Quickly. Some researchers are excited about a vaccine for an entirely different disease, one developed more than a century ago. Here's NPR's Michaleen Do Cliff. In the early 19. Hundreds to French scientists took on one of the most deadly diseases. Tuberculosis at the time. TV was killing three times as many people per capita as cove. It is today, and there was no vaccine so these French guys decided to try to develop one for TB. He used what was the most effective approach at the time live bacteria. Dr. Daniel Hoff is a TV expert at ST Louis University. He says the scientists took a strain of TB from cows and grew it in the lab for a long time. He left it unattended for about nine years. Anybody continued to slowly grow and weaken. The scientists waited until the TB bacteria were just weak enough not to make people sick but still strong enough to trigger an immune response. They decided to use it and they found it didn't make people sick. In fact, it protected baby's against tbe, cutting their risk of a deadly infection. By up to 70%. It was a game changer called off. Like wildfire and has been if not the most commonly used vaccine in the world. Ever since the vaccine is called BCG, and Over the past century, scientists have noticed something surprising it not only protects babies against TB, but it also protects them against many deadly childhood infections. In the 19 twenties in Sweden. The kids who got DC jet birth they had three full, decreasing mortality. That's Dr Bardia Amor lack at the UT Southwestern Medical Center. He says. Scientists don't understand exactly how BCG fights off other diseases. But there's evidence that it's not just BCG that can do this, but any live vaccine. Such as polio, measles and even the life flu vaccine. Robert Gallo directs the Institute of Human Biology at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. He was one of the main scientists involved in the discovery of HIV. He says Live vaccines supercharge the body's frontline defenders, the cells that first noticed an invader in attack it in the lot of screaming. It triggers off a lot of mechanisms to stop this infection immediately. Now, Gallo and scientists are wondering if BCG or another live vaccine can help a person clear out Cove in 19 more quickly. So they not only don't get sick, they aren't contagious. If enough people were protected for a period of time, you wouldn't be spreading the virus. We could break the back of the epidemic. To test this hypothesis. Scientists around the world are running more than a dozen clinical trials with BCG. Dr Moshe Rdd leads one of them at Cedars Sinai in Los Angeles, he says. We already know BCG is safe or than 130 million kids every year. Every year received the BCG vaccine, so the safety profile has been strong and it's cheap. Just a few dollars produce. The big question is how effective Willoughby Our daddy says no one believes BCG will be better than a specific.

"Studies ongoing at the moment in healthcare workers. One in Australia. A one in the Netherlands and these studies are randomized studies where healthcare workers are randomized to receive the CG or not and there will be followed up for the incidence of Kovac nineteen related infections. So that's very clear that at the moment there's no evidence tall to use the BBC g vaccine in the in prevention or any other way for against covert nineteen but presumably. It is still worth looking at whether there might be some usefulness however do we know anything about the biological mechanisms underlying the Basiji vaccine the might cause the sort of non specific effects. You're talking about earlier. That's a really good question. So the simple answer is we don't know exactly how this effect might work if it is real and we don't really know whether it's real or not yet but there are a number of potential mechanisms that have been suggested so the first is a concept of what we call trained immunity now. Traditional teaching has been that the innate immune response which is the very early immune response after your body is first exposed to an infection does not have what we call immunological memory but just acts in a very non specific way but there is now some evidence from studies with the showing the BCG actually juices what we call. Epigenetics changes in some of the white blood cells. Those changes may those white blood cells. Better able to see unrelated infections now. That work has been shown in a test tube and in the laboratory and it's been shown to last for at least three months but certainly when those studies were done twelve months after besieging vaccination the effect had worn off. So I think one of the important questions if this effect is real is how long does it last? Another way in which this may work is when you use any kind of immune response you get the release of cytokines chemicals in the blood that help fight infection. It may be that. Those chemicals help fight off other pathogens as well as the specific ones that the vaccine was.

"Big Problem with this work is it is retrospective observational and it is subject to therefore too many scientific biases. There may be many other reasons why those babies did not receive be CG but make the most -ceptable to Sepsis or indeed to death. That had nothing to do with. Basiji itself and the problem with these kinds of studies is they're not controlled in a rigorous scientific way that enables us to be confident of the data so this is left. Open the question really whether there really is an effect or not and if there is an effect critically how long does it last? And how strong is it right? So there have been several studies as well as the the one we mentioned earlier that have looked at the possible correlation between the vaccine and produced mortality rates in. Cova nineteen. But how does the evidence that these studies are looking at? There have been three. Studies published preprinted. So they've not been peer reviewed rigorously by scientific experts in the field looking at the incidents of Kovac nineteen infection in populations that either used Basiji vaccination or don't and seems to be a trend or a signal that in populations where the G. is used that has been a lower rate of covert nineteen infection. Now again the problem with these studies is there a retrospective they have no control group and they are subject to many many co-founders. Some examples of confounding factors would be wealth general healthcare infrastructure down to individual factors such as birth weight. We know that in the countries in West Africa where where these studies have been conducted particularly low birth weight infants. Don't receive BCG. Well that may predispose them to increased risk of sepsis increased risk of neonatal mortality as well and that's nothing to do with the fact they didn't have bee gees the underlying facts that they had a low birth weight. I think it's really important that people understand there is no evidence at all at the moment that BCG protects against corona.

"Welcome to science weekly as the pandemic continues to unfold have been so many questions about covert nineteen and its impact around the globe. Some of which were exploring here today. We're asking what does the vaccine got to do? With covert nineteen. Many of you may have seen recent reports linking the tuberculosis vaccine otherwise known as G to lower rates of mortality from covert nineteen. So why would one hundred year old vaccine have any effect on a new disease? There is no evidence at all at the moment that Basiji protects against Corona virus infection. I'm Sarah Bosley and this is science. Weekly Hello Helen. How are you how are you doing? Are you able to do any work at the moment? A High Sara yes actually. I'm busier than ever as a suspect. Many people are trying to coordinate The clinical research activities as happening Oxford. And does that mean going into the labs or can lots of stuff be done from home? No it needs doing almost all of this from home. I do go occasionally. I Tell Them. Mcshane Professor Effects Analogy at the University of Oxford who researches new vaccines for Tuburculosis so Helen. Some of our listeners may have seen news stories reporting on a study which found the death rate from Ovid nineteen with six times lower in countries that had a program to give children the G. Two closest vaccine. So I WANNA before we go to get into the evidence for this. Perhaps you could just talk to us about. Why would even be interest in the role that a hundred year old vaccine could possibly play in fighting a new disease and this is a vaccine of course that we know doesn't work that well for tuberculosis itself. Which is why we don't actually use it very much anymore in the UK except in particularly at risk areas of the country. The reason why people are interested in whether BCG might protect against corona virus is. There has been a long standing scientific interest in what we call the non specific effects of. Bcg nonspecific we mean protection from diseases. Although than mycobacterium tuberculosis and related micro bacteria the very best evidence we have four nonspecific effect for. Bcg is that it works very well when given locally into the bladder in very large doses to treat early stage bladder cancer. However I think it's really important to remember that giving very large doses of Basiji repeatedly into the bladder where it has. A local effect is very different from saying that injecting. Bcg into the arm might protect against other spiritually pathogens such as corona.

And let's just talk about patients from around the world patient fluid on Friday sa- physician from Germany seventy years old. He's a surgeon and two years ago. He had blood. In the urine. And we sometimes talk about people with blood in the urine. And you know, that could be a sign of cancer of the urinary tract anywhere from the kidney gone to the tube that connects the kidney to the bladder the ureter bladder to your e throw itself. So he had blood in the urine. He went to see urologist hero. Just looked inside and found a superficial bladder cancer. Scraped it out by Obse found the cancer. Then he treated it with what's called BCG, which is a biologic gory. Melodic medicine usually used to inaugurate people against per kilo sus often in Europe, people are given to BCG to help prevent TV in America. That's commonly used but it is commonly used for superficial bladder cancer. And he was given that treatment didn't work. He then had a repeat assist us copy. Which is having the doctor look inside the bladder and the cancer grew back. This is now two years ago and a group. Back but now rather than being superficial superficial. Just not touching the muscle. The bladder has to real parts one is the lining which is kind of a protective coat, and then the deep partisan muscle, the muscle contracts, and send your urine how does how you urinate or most of us urinate. Well, now, the cancer had grown in to the muscle and the patient flew into New York went to the super duper pooper, big hospitals. He went to several of them, and he saw surgeon and asserted all this time. I'm going to do a good clean out of your bladder. And he did a super scraping of the bladder. And he founded base of cancer invading into the muscle. And then the surgeon told the urology surgeon told the patient who's also a surgeon. So it's one surgeon telling the other ones the surgeon mouth the surgeon is the patient that he has to have his bladder removed and the surgeon the patient knew what that meant the end of his sex life the end of this year. Mary life that he would never urinate. Normally that's a big operation and not everyone makes it through the operation and the patient who's a surgeon told the surgeon who's the doctor that he's not gonna have that that he refuses that he doesn't want that way of life and listen to this.

"You'll be cheaper going to a organization like BCG services have them repair. It Jack it up get it level. Most times when you know, your local municipality, they tell you have to replace him repairs because it's on even a hazard for the pedestrians. So you may wanna call BCG services and have them come look at it. And see if it's repairable and also give you a price for that. Hope that works out for you. Okay. Our next tech says Paul I built a barbecue. Zebo out of tree lumber. How long treated lumber typically half the dry out before it would absorb stain. It's been completed an outside. Since mid December. Okay. So. A little bit difficult question the answer. And let me tell you the reason why because it depends on hydride. The wood was when you bought it from wherever you bought it. Lumber yard or big box store and install. Fortunately, we've had some dry weather since mid December. So it's been naturally drying. We haven't had a lot of bright blue birds sunshine days. So it's probably not as dry as it would wanna be before. I would stand it. But the best way to know is to get a moisture meter and probe it and you want to be able to measure the moisture content of that treated lumber. And you would like to get it. This time of year you probably want to get in that sixteen seventeen percent range. Eighteen percent will be Lou high. I don't think I would want to stay in eighteen percent moisture content you probably with a little bit longer. And that's gonna be the best way. You the judge win that Trenton lumbers ready to receive some stain, and then and you can finish it as well. You get the that's the best Brett kitchen bushmeat meat. If you don't have one go bar one. If you need to buy one man, you can go to Amazon and get one for real reasonable. It doesn't mean to be a very expensive, you know, twenty five thirty bucks in you can have a moisture meter ship to you pretty short order and be able to measure that and move forward that. Okay. Let's go to for Lonzo Beauge speak with Bill. Hey, bill. Good morning. Welcome to the show. Hello. Hey, bill. Good morning. Good morning, sir. Listen, the reason I called, okay. So the house that I bought about twelve years ago, the builder busyness it such that the dryer is in the middle of the house. So the dryer outlet the exhaust. It goes up to the attic and runs over thirty feet through the addict to the side of the house. So my dryer time is about an hour and a half maybe longer and it should be a half an hour, forty minutes. What do you say to that? Yeah. So. Bill. That's a tough spot. I their houses that have laundry rooms and move at my parents house, their laundry rooms in the house too. And I'm the one who helped design it is sometimes it's the best place to put it. It's not as the better product or better location will but the outside sometimes depending how things lay out that's not a possibility. My parents house. It wasn't a possibility sounds like that's probably the best place for your house as well. So what I did at my parents home instead of taking that very long dryer ducking sauce, Ron and running in over thirty feet. I went straight up, and I went out the roof, not my favorite thing to do. But a lot better than what you are. You're facing with because they're run Tom's are not an hour and a half their run times are shorter. And we also put a lint trap the very bottom of it. So once a year dad can slide the closure out of the way put in a shop back into that lint trap suck out any Linda gets bypass the filter on the clothes dryer. Get it all cleaned it safe. It all back together. In a matter of, you know, thirty forty five minute project that. That big of a deal. So in your case, you may choose to rewrite a shorter route. Or would you may do is you may choose to put in a booster fan in line with your work. Right. That would help you because of the long your dryers never designed to withstand the pressure of that long thirty foot run, plus all the bends and transitions in it, even if the exhaust. All stockings over-sized, and it's a rigid pipe in smoothing inside. It's still will never overcome that distance. So you're going to need some form of a U L rated closed drier booster a manufacturer. I've used in the past that worked for that. And it has that you'll rating which you know that that's important to have is made by fantastic. So that inland dryer duck booster may fantastic works. Well. Okay. Also to if I wanted to go straight out that seem to be a simple solution to the problem Huda, call for something like that. That's a tough one because you need a combination of. Two different people. You need a roofer to do the roof Jack for the duck the transition and terminating to route Jack, and you need someone to run the ductwork. So that would be a sheet metal person such as the contractor license. As fact deal that comes in services air conditioning with twice a year and your heater. So that will be the person I I wouldn't want to use because they used to work with sheet. Metal in sizing. Duck transitions all the time. Okay. All right. Well, thank you so much every future advice. You quite welcome. Thank you have a great day. If you have a question you call two six zero one eight seventy eight seventy eight seven guitar next caller, we'll speak with Jason. Hey, jason. Good morning. Welcome to the show. Hey, good morning. How are you? This morning. I'm doing great. How about you doing good? Hey, I took a forty foot metal storage. And turned it into a team over in Mississippi. You'll love it came out. The problem. I'm trying to prove it is it's nine twenty container with eight walls. So there's there's wind up being about close to sorts of of. I guess at experience between the installation is the Sheely up the container. The what I'm trying to prevent condensation that would achieve late on PD ceiling. Following the installation bowl build you eventually to the ceiling. I don't have really penetration in the in that area. And I'm not sure exactly how to prevent that kind of changed from occurred. Okay. So let me exist question which type of insulation to use that one foot attic space. Just regular role installation. Like a fiberglass pink yellow white fiberglass stuff. How thick is it? How tall is it? I think it was a or thirteen. Okay. So it it doesn't fill up that entire void. Or that one foot cavity you have above the ceiling. Correct. There's probably about six inches between the installation of. Healing. Okay. Man, you made a complicated. Jason. Here's here's the only thing you can do at this point. Is I will put in a dehumidifier within that space, so low standalone seven hundred eighty pint energy star rated dehumidifier that's gonna permit drank connected to it, and I will leave it running year round. To try and reduce the risk of condensation occurring so much like a talked about with with with Jimmy earlier about how water vapor moves inch energy exchanges. So if the interior that bottom from UCLA down the bottom eight feet is dry. If any water vapor gets into that upper. Proximate twelve inch attic it will migrate through the fiberglass installation through Sheila, she rock and get drowned out by the demystify. However, I gotta tell you there's going to be a risk on extreme days where the air is really saturated and the metal is very conductive the metal shipping containers, very conductive. There's gonna be a risk of condensation occurring at the underside of the metal. Container above your father glass insulation. It's gonna condense it's gonna drip now. Hopefully won't be as bad because you have a dehumidifier down below eighty water does drip will get dried out, but a dehumidifier. It. But it because there's a void between the top of that. Arthur teen in the bottom that metal that metal candidate metal shipping container. There's a great risk for reach and do point. Okay. Would should we have taken installation all the way up to the? Yes. Okay. All right. What about something as simple as a wurley bird up on top or kind of an attic fan on two separate ends on going in one that do any good or what where's your camp at? In central Mississippi. Okay. Probably it's not gonna work because you still got too much humidity in that area. You can't dry wet air with more wet air. So adding vents adding power fan is going to make the situation worse. So would you could do is you can insulate on top of that can on the outside of that metal? Ceiling the metal roof and insulated to try and increase the temperature of that metal on the inside the ceiling. So that it doesn't get that says the only thing you have at this point. You can't really do anything else. You may you may want to try and paint it black and caller to get some heat from the sun. But that's only going to work when the sun's up. Gotcha. The the ladies. Yes. News update protesters are outside the governor's mansion in Virginia urging governor Ralph Northam to step down, white supremacy and racism should not be baked into the fabric of American.
