Doctor Aaron Beaumont. All of the sudden we just got overwhelmed Ambulance after ambulance with Hypoxic patients people in respiratory distress. Dr. Beaumont, who works in the Boston area, has grown tragically used to the toll of this pandemic, but is bracing for a post holiday crush of patients at one of the constants that we've had throughout this pandemic since the beginning. Is the component of stress and fear that the health care workers in the front line providers are experiencing every single day or tired of this. We're exhausted, but the pandemic strange extend far beyond the halls of hospitals, months of economic hardship marking the start of the holiday season. That need evident across the country. Cars backed up for miles, people standing in line for hours, even in the rain just to get food. food.

Joining me now now Live Live is is the the director director of of the National the National Institute Institute of Allergy of Allergy and and Infectious Infectious Diseases, Diseases, Dr Dr Anthony Anthony Fauci. Fauci. Dr Dr Fauci. Fauci. Welcome Welcome back back to to this this week. week. Today Today could could be be the the busiest busiest travel travel day day in in the country the country since since the the start start of the of pandemic, the pandemic, even even though though you you and and other other public public health health leaders leaders have have made made appeal appeal after after appeal appeal for for people people to stay to stay put. put. And And distance distance as as much much as as possible. possible. When When you you watch watch these these scenes, scenes, what what do you do think? you think? And And what what else else can can you you possibly possibly say say to to them? them? Well, Well, I mean, I mean, the the travel travel that that has has been been done done has has been been done done right right now now is is people people go go back? back? We want We want to to urge urge them. them. If they've If they've been been in situations in situations outside outside of of the the family family setting setting in in which which they they really really don't don't know know the level the level of of exposure exposure to to be be really really careful careful when when you you either either return return from from the place the place that that you you went. went. Other Other people people come come back back into into your your house. house. That you've That you've really really got got to understand to understand the importance the importance of of trying trying to to prevent prevent further further spread spread and and further further surge surge that that maybe maybe when when you you go go back back to to where where you you came came from, from, if if it's it's possible possible to to quarantine quarantine yourself yourself for for a a period period of time, of time, or or even even get get tested tested to to make make sure sure That you're That you're not not bringing bringing infection infection back back to to another another place place being being another another home home or or another another family. family. Having Having said said that that we we have have to to be be careful careful now now because because they're they're almost almost certainly certainly is is going going to be to be an an uptick uptick because because of of what what has has happened happened with with the travel. the travel. We We understand. understand. The importance The importance of of family family is getting is getting together together and and it's it's just just something something that that we we have have to to deal deal with with that that we we likely likely will will have have an an increase increase in in cases cases as as we we get get into into the the colder colder weeks. weeks. Of the Of the winter. winter. And And as as we we approach approach the Christmas the Christmas season, season, please please don't don't forget forget the the standard standard public public health health measures measures that that we we talk talk about about The reason The reason I I say say that that a a moth moth and and and and almost almost plead plead with with people people is is that that we we do do know know That it That it does does work. work. Countries Countries that that have have mitigated mitigated have have turned turned around around the surge. the surge. States States that that have have mitigated mitigated have have had had a a turnaround turnaround of the of the inflection inflection of of the the curb. curb. So So it it does does work. work. And And as as we've we've just just heard, heard, help help is is on on the the way way Vaccines Vaccines a a really really right right on on the the horizon. horizon. Will Will be be having having vaccines vaccines available available for for the the higher higher priority priority people people towards towards the the middle middle and and end end of of December December and and as as we we get get into into January January and and February, February, so so everyone everyone is is totally totally empathetic. empathetic. About About the the fatigue fatigue that that everyone everyone is is feeling. feeling. But But if we if we can can hang hang in in there, there, hang hang in in there there a a bit bit longer longer and and do do the fundamental the fundamental things things wearing wearing of of mask mask uniformly uniformly avoiding avoiding crowds crowds and and congregate congregate settings, settings, keeping keeping physical physical distance distance washing washing your your hands. hands. They They seem seem simple simple in in the the enormity enormity of of the problem. the problem. That we're That we're facing, facing, But But they they do do make make a a difference. difference. Dr. Dr. Fauci Fauci pleaded pleaded before before the the beginning. beginning. Yeah, Yeah, Doc Doc Doctor Doctor Fauci. Fauci. You You have have said said that that again again and and again again and and again. again. We We saw saw all all those those people people traveling. traveling. So So you you know know what's what's coming. coming. And And with with Christmas Christmas just just around around the corner, the corner, do do you you think think will will be be under under the the same same restrictions restrictions that that you you recommended? recommended? On Thanksgiving On Thanksgiving going going into into Christmas. Christmas. You You know, know, Martha, Martha, I I can't can't see see how how we're we're not not gonna gonna have have the the same same thing thing because because when when you you have have the the kind kind of inflection of inflection that that we we have, have, it it doesn't doesn't all of all of a sudden a sudden turn turn around around like like that. that. So So clearly, clearly, in in the the next next few few weeks, weeks, we're we're gonna gonna have have the the same same sort sort of thing. of thing. And And perhaps perhaps even even two two or or three three weeks weeks down down the the line, line, Martha, Martha, we we may may see see a a surge surge upon upon a a surge. surge. You You know, we know, we don't don't want want to frighten to frighten people. people. But But that's that's just just the the reality. reality. We We said said that that these these things things would would happen. happen. As we As we got got into into the the cold cold weather, weather, and and as as we we began began traveling, traveling, and and they've they've happened, happened, it's it's gonna gonna happen happen again. again. So So I I cannot cannot see see all all of of a a sudden sudden a a relax relax ation ation of of the kinds the kinds of of recommendations recommendations or or restrictions restrictions because because we're we're getting getting into into colder colder weather weather and and enough enough in in even even larger larger holiday holiday season season as as people people travel travel to to come come back back and and forth. forth. For Christmas, For Christmas, so so I I don't don't see see a a relax relax ation ation of of the kind the kind of of recommendations recommendations and and restrictions restrictions that that we've we've made. made. And And Dr Dr Factually. Factually. The Supreme The Supreme Court Court on on Wednesday Wednesday struck struck down down New New York's York's Covad Covad restrictions restrictions on on religious religious gatherings gatherings in in the state. the state. How How concerned concerned are you are you about about legal legal challenges challenges to to pandemic pandemic restrictions restrictions going going forward? forward? Well, Well, I I mean, mean, they they happened, happened, Martha. Martha. There's There's nothing nothing I I could could do about do about it. it. I I just just keep keep saying saying that that when when people people ask ask me me for for Opinions Opinions of of specific specific things things rather rather than than make make a a comment comment on on a a specific specific things. things. I I could could just just say say it it doesn't doesn't matter matter who who you you are are where where you you are, are, when when you have you have congregate congregate settings, settings, particularly particularly indoors. indoors. When When people people are not are not wearing wearing masks, masks, that that is is a a considerable considerable risk risk for for acquisition acquisition and and spread spread of of infection, infection, no no matter matter what what the circumstances the circumstances that that is is a a risk. risk. And And you you said said there there should should be more be more regular regular testing testing available available for for asymptomatic asymptomatic people. people. How How soon soon do do you think you think before before Americans Americans could could have have inexpensive inexpensive home home tests? tests? And And why why haven't haven't they they so so far? far? Well, Well, I I hope hope it's it's sooner sooner rather rather than than later, later, Martha. Martha. I mean I mean they they obviously obviously we've we've done done better better in in testing testing than than we we did did early early on on in the in beginning. the beginning. But you're But you're talking talking about about different different kinds kinds and and different different motivations motivations and and different different objectives objectives of of testing. testing. If If you're you're trying trying to find to find out out if if a a person person is is infected infected either either for for contact contact tracing tracing or or what what have have you you then then you you want want a a highly highly sensitive sensitive test test that that might might take take a a day day or or two two to to get get a a result result back. back. When When you're you're trying trying to find to find out out what what the the extent extent of of the community the community spread spread is is that that is is driven driven very very clearly, clearly, at at least least in in part part by by asymptomatic asymptomatic spread, spread, so so we we need need to to know know the extent the extent of of the the asymptomatic. asymptomatic. The only The only way way you you know know that that is is what what you you just just asked asked for. for. And I And I would would like like to to have have seen seen it it already. already. And And I hope I hope that that we we get get it soon. it soon. Rapid, Rapid, sensitive, sensitive, specific specific home home testing testing even even one one that that you you might might not not even even need need a a prescription prescription for for so so that that people people can can have have within within their their own own power power to to know know whether whether or or not not it it is is in in his his highly highly sensitive sensitive is is the the other, other, but but it it is is very very helpful, helpful, particularly particularly if if you you do do it it over over and and over over again. again. I hope I hope we we get get that that soon. soon. And And Dr Dr Fauci Fauci in New in York New York City City Public Public school school shut shut down down again again earlier earlier this this month. month. I I know know your your default default position position is is that that you'd you'd like like to to see see the the skull skull schools schools open. open. But But how how do do you you make make that that happen? happen? And And how how would would you you advise advise the the incoming incoming Biden Biden administration administration on on getting getting a a sort sort of unified of unified response? response? Well, Well, you you know, know, Martha, Martha, that's that's a a good good question. question. We get We get asked asked that all that all the the time. time. You You know, we know, we say say it it not not being being facetiously facetiously as as a a sound sound bite bite or anything, or anything, but but you you know, know, Closed Closed the boss the boss and and keep keep the the school's school's open open is is what what we really we really say. say. Obviously, Obviously, you you don't don't have have one one size size fits fits all. all. But But as as I I said said in in the past, the past, and and as as you you accurately accurately quoted quoted me me The default The default position position should should be be to to try try his his best best this this possible possible within within reason reason to keep to keep the the Children Children in school in school to to get get them them back back to school. to school. The The best best way way to to ensure ensure the the safety safety of of the Children the Children in school in school is is to to get get the community the community level level of of spread spread low. low. So So if if you you mitigate mitigate the things the things that that you you know, know, are are causing causing spread spread In a In a very, very, very very profound profound way way in in a a robust robust way. way. If If you you bring bring that that down, down, you you will will then then indirectly indirectly and and ultimately ultimately protect protect the Children the Children in the in school the school because because the the community community level level is is determined determined how how things things go go across across the the board. board. So my So my feeling feeling would would be the be the same same thing. thing. If If you you look look at at the the data, data, the spread the spread among among Children Children and and from from Children Children is is not not really really very very big big at at all, all, not not like like one one would would have have suspected. suspected. So So let's let's try try to to get get the the kids kids back. back. But But let's let's try try to to mitigate mitigate the the things things that that maintain maintain and and and and just just push push the the kind kind of community of community spread spread that that we're we're trying trying to avoid. to avoid. And And those those other other things things that that you you know know well, well, the the bars bars the the restaurants restaurants where where you have you have capacity capacity seating seating indoors indoors without without masks. masks. Those Those of of the things the things that that drive drive the the community community spread, spread, not not the the schools schools and and and and Dr Dr fracture. fracture. You You talked talked about about the the vaccine vaccine and and the availability the availability of of the the vaccine. vaccine. The government The government Can't Can't force force everyone everyone to take to take the vaccine. the vaccine. So So what what about about schools? schools? Companies? Companies? Employers? Employers? Can Can they they mandate mandate of vaccine of vaccine like like in in other other vaccines? vaccines? You You know know any any individual individual group group command command eight eight vaccines vaccines in in certain certain ways, ways, Martha, Martha, It's It's not. not. I I believe believe going going to come to come centrally. centrally. I I don't don't want want to get to get ahead ahead of of the game the game there, there, but but I I doubt doubt that. that. That would That would happen. happen. For For example, example, right right now, now, myself. myself. I I mean, mean, I'm I'm at at the the NIH NIH Clinical Clinical Center. Center. I'm I'm a a physician. physician. I I see see patients. patients. I I have have to to get get the the influenza influenza vaccine vaccine or or I'm I'm not not gonna gonna be able be able to see to see patients, patients, so so individual individual units units be be they they hospitals hospitals or or other other organizations. organizations. Can't Can't do do that. that. It's It's within within their their right right to to say. say. If If you you want want to work to work with with us, us, you're you're gonna gonna have have to to get get a vaccine. a vaccine. But But that's that's not not going going to be, to be, I I believe, believe, essentially essentially mandated mandated process process and and Dr Dr Factory. Factory. There There are are concerns concerns about about the the anti anti vaccination vaccination movement movement and and infectious infectious to to see see disease disease specialists specialists in Boston, in Boston, telling telling the Boston the Boston Globe Globe the same the same energy energy that that was was placed placed into into development development and and distribution distribution of a of a Corona Corona virus. virus. Vaccine Vaccine should should have have been been placed placed in in messaging messaging and and community community engagement. engagement. Do you Do you agree agree with with that? that? Oh, Oh, absolutely. absolutely. We We have have to to engage engage the the community. community. Martha Martha B. B. Because Because we we do do have have a a degree degree of of anti anti vax vax to to begin begin with. with. But But then then there's there's skepticism skepticism about about this this vaccine. vaccine. So So we've we've got got to be to be able able to to get get out out there there get get community community people people who who the the community community trust trust to show to show two two things. things. The process The process of of the the development development of of this this vaccine vaccine has has been been one one that that has has been been scientifically scientifically sound sound safety safety has has not not been been compromised. compromised. Scientific Scientific integrity integrity has has not not been been compromised compromised and and the process the process Of determining Of determining whether whether it it works. works. Whether Whether it's it's safe safe and and effective, effective, has has been been independent independent by by independent independent bodies bodies and and transparent. transparent. We've We've got got to get to get the the community community the broad the broad community community of of the United the United States States to to see see that that and and appreciate appreciate that. that. And And how how could could be be we'd we'd be sure be sure there there won't won't be prolonged be prolonged side side effects effects from from this this vaccine. vaccine. Well, Well, you you know, know, Martin, Martin, the one the one thing thing you've you've got got to admit to admit that that in in any any intervention, intervention, there there might might be be a side a side effect. effect. The The history history of of vaccine vaccine ology ology that that we we know know for for decades decades and and decades. decades. Is that Is that when when you you talk talk about about prolonged prolonged side side effects effects that's that's very very rare rare and and the side the side effects effects that that occurred occurred that that are beyond are beyond the immediate the immediate pain pain in in the the arm arm and and the fever the fever and and things things like like that. that. Generally Generally occur occur when when you look you look at at like like 95% 95% of the of time the time between between maybe maybe 30 30 and and 45 45 days, days, which which is is the the exact exact reason reason why why the the FDA FDA said said that that they they would would not not want want Tonto Tonto issue issue and and you you a a or or approve approve anyway anyway and and emergency emergency use use organization organization until until 60 60 days days after after half half of of the the people people in in a a trial trial Have Have gone gone from from their their last last dose. dose. So So already, already, the the FDA FDA has has baked baked into into the the process, process, a a safety safety mechanism mechanism to to make make sure sure that that you you have have historically historically overwhelming overwhelming chance chance that that you're you're not not gonna gonna have have a a very very late late effect. effect. Having Having said said that that also, also, you you don't don't just just forget forget about about it. Once it. Once the the trial trial is is over, over, you you have have one one or or two two years years of of the the trial trial follow follow up. up. In In addition addition to to post post trial trial follow follow up up So that's So that's something something that that is is very, very, very very high high priority priority is is the the immediate immediate intermediate intermediate and and long long term term safety safety of of these these vaccines. vaccines. It's It's not not something something that's that's being being disregarded. disregarded.

"Welcome back to the moment everybody I am speaking with Katie Vigo's today she is a registered nurse and founder of the empowered birth project. I'm so excited to speak with you today we've had a few technical difficulties in hopefully those stay at bay now but yeah, welcome to the woman. I'm so glad we finally got you on. Thank you so much for having me. I'm excited for our conversation you work in Icu Poe right now correct yes. That's right. Critical Care is still my primary specialty the moment. Love that when did you know you want it to be a nurse led you to this field? I've always been interested in anatomy and physiology as a kid I found the human body to. Be. So fascinating and I was just drawn to those sciences and when I was a senior in high school my offered a free course to become certified as a CNA nursing assistant, and so I immediately saw Kinda, this golden opportunity to get certified to start working in this field that I'd always been interested in. So I took a class and then got my first job working in skilled nursing facility and I've pretty much never stopped. I love. That's the thing that's basically the road I talk to you like I. Well, I knew I wanted to be a nurse but like as soon as I could take that scene a course I did that a great way to get started. A it definitely will introduce you to to see if you can handle being around that much bodily fluid. That will particular job was like probably the most backbreaking Labor I've ever done in my life. Yeah. Yeah. All have only gone up hill from there their gotten better from there that was so hard. I was too young and inexperienced to even know any better I was just excited to be working in. You know getting started with my career yeah. One hundred percent I mean I started working on a med surge floor and I literally never been in more pain in my life than when I would come home from working. At. A shift there. I have so much respect for MED surge nurses. I S honestly think it's harder in many ways that what to do in critical care respect for floor nursing same same I ended up in the Nikki I've had enough of adults like I can't. I can't move them. No, it's. It's physically, very challenging. Mentally emotionally, spiritually challenging job it requires like our whole being so he has. Yes people. Yeah. What is life and free since the pandemic started with working still being in the ICU I it's you know it's been a roller coaster I at the time that Kobe really started to hit the United States where we went on lockdown here. In California, I was on a full time loan to cardiovascular is you which was a challenging assignment, but I took it because I wanted you know some fulltime work for a few months and I was just a few weeks instead assignment and starting to feel a little bit more comfortable, and because I was per diem and because all almost all elective non emergent surgeries completely stopped onus unindicted unit was way overstaffed and they're like, well we. Don't need you any more sorry and I was like, okay. So I lost that Gig and then I had been working in outpatient surgery as well with a facility for three years and back completely shut down. So ironically I was kind of gearing up in those early weeks. I'm like all right here we go. Like I've been training my whole life for this and I was it just didn't play out the way I expected a now a sudden I'm worried about you know getting enough work as I in pandemic. And there are a lot of reasons for that that you know I'm sure you're aware of many people listening are aware of, but you know the per diem crowd got hit hard and everything just shifted around so quickly and then it was like travel nurses coming in, you know my co workers are you know leaving and getting work elsewhere because they can't Get at our hospital and it just felt so chaotic and uncertain, and I have had also been working for the private sector for the last eight or nine years here in Los Angeles Oh come on a lot of pride in doing her thing and so I'm really networked into that field as well here and so I was able to just hustle in. Find some private work and just like piecing everything together like a lot of us per diem nurses are good at doing you know. Yeah. So I was able to get through you know kind of those early months and then things started to pick up again at my hospital and so now that I'm able to work more kind of back mostly full in the ICU again, doing some a private work as well and aside it's it's changed everything I mean regardless of where we work like. Especially, at first like the policies and procedures were just changing daily, you know as mere figuring out the best ways to protect ourselves, screen all of our patients and everything, and so that was overwhelming to keep up with, and for example, I was floated to. Telemetry one day at a unit I. Believe once before come on shift and I have a patient who is like in basically in respiratory distress did not like the level of a rapid response per se. But like he's on iphone as will Kanye like eighty percent like fifty liters or something like that, and you know he has tech Nick and all this stuff and I'm just like, are we going to test this guy for covert like your and? where's PP P now, as I kinda, don't want to go in the room unless I have that, and then I really had to advocate for myself and be like you know, let's test this guy that was before my hus-, my husband's testing everybody. But like those early weeks were really stressful that way because there are so many unknowns and it was it was scary to walk into work which previously was familiar and comfortable to me is an experienced nurse and two now just feel.

Now I wanted to do everything I could to be able to treat Cove it at home myself. So I worked with my father who has been my business partner and a great inventor, uh, to make a device That is traditionally used for sleep apnea. Um, advice is called a C pap and we wanted to make this something. Something called a Bye, Pappa by level, Ah pressure device.

How difficult was it to take a CPAP and adapted for these purposes to what is now helping covert 19 patients? First of all buy, perhaps and see, perhaps have been used for many years. Um, so the technology itself is not completely new, but the way that we did it, Wass. We put really tight constraints on ourselves, which said that we didn't want this to be expensive. We wanted this to be available to everyone. We wanted it to be extremely easy to use. And we wanted to be configurable for from doctors in a way that that was suitable to to dealing with Corbett and respiratory distress in general, what is the greatest benefit that Cove in 19 patients see from your device? I think that the greatest is the comfort that they will be able to breathe on their own. Um and not require life support in such a way that that ventilators invasive ventilators. Of, you know, even provide those are necessary for some, but for many of us, we just want to know that we can get to a level of comfort that we can get over this illness. Is there a suggested retail price? Dr. Putman on your device? Yeah. Yeah, we get $300 and for no hospital grade tool like this Is $13,000 is what hospitals pay their other devices for sleep apnea. But for this type of, you know, hospital grade medical devices $13,000. No, we're targeting $300. We hope that that is in arranged that more.

"And they are both classified as narcotic on it'll just in these these are very high for codependence addiction and they are they. Both can cause respiratory distress and death when taken in high doses or combined with a substances such as alcohol or fennel. So how do you approach someone who is using? Definitely you know. You don't rush them and do not start yelling at them. If you find out from someone that your loved one is using, you know what I mean I mean approach them and give them some sort of power and ask, Hey, can I talk to you? You know what I mean on I guarantee you this person is struggling and they're hurting you know and I can tell you right now after studies that I have that I have done and help that I was saved for things that I was struggling with. You know it all begins from As a kid, you know what I mean. So so me growing up you know there's something that I did wrong you know I definitely was dishonest. mean. Be Dishonest to get things way you know what I mean. So so kids nowadays you know what I mean. They'll ask you like, Hey, can I have a certain amount of money to go do this to go to a movie? But are they really using this money to go to a movie or? To go do this please so. As the kid is young, find out what they're doing who they're hanging out with you know. You know there's a saying from from when I was younger that said, you, you are your friends are. Honestly. True. If your friends using, you'll be using too. But right now that's the matter at hand is is just not the whole using part is the fact that you know some some of our kids are using appeal that they can never come back from. You know. So it's very serious right now in our community and. The education that we're lacking is just it's not rape we need to be educated in this. We need to save our kids at the end of the day. That's what it comes down to. You know. Our children should be sheltered to a certain extent. Talk to your kids find out what their with your passion her boat make sure you're pushing them and support them you know. You have to be a friend as well as appearing Also, how do we help these struggling? Individuals right now like I said, please talk to them. You know what? I mean. trust me like I said, they wake up every morning praying to God. You know what I mean to blacken destruct from their hearts and their lives you know. So they can continue on and being normal nobody wants to struggle like that. Our people need to be sent to treatment centers. These centers are from Don upon with in our communities and I know it. But honestly, the only way you could save any of our children are in that are in substance abuse is to get them to get these toxins out of their bodies and at least to be away for thirty days or so or even you know that gives them time and hope you of becoming clean. So I would love can all come together? And maybe even maybe open it islamic-based. Center, to help our. People. I'm honestly offer the 'cause whatever works. I'm telling you the best way to help anybody that struggling right now is to send them to treatment. And if you don't think that's rate than please let's come together and build eight. Islamic treatment. Centre. For the people. Please, we need to help our people and like I said, talk to your kids. I hope this podcast helps on on addiction and mental health If you have any questions, please contact me on Snapchat Sammy Buns S..

Air that may not S. as be well typical. Air and S. as well The ventilator and The ventilator Think this is an important Think this part is an important of the story. part of the That story. patients with That patients With Kobe with nineteen viral With infection Kobe nineteen or viral other causes infection of or other causes Respiratory of distress like I mentioned Respiratory substance or distress bacterial like I pneumonia mentioned substance trauma or bacterial and pneumonia you have trauma Increasing respiratory and you have distress Increasing respiratory your lungs. Start distress to fill with Lewis your lungs. Start to and fill with Lewis the work of breathing and when your the work lungs are. of breathing Our when full of your fluid lungs is are. very very Our full of fluid rate. is very very So these patients rate. generally run So out of these patients generally Energy run out of the fatigue Energy and they need then the fatigue later to help and they need then with later their respiration to help with and their so respiration the the and the so the the the irony the of of the this is that irony the ventilator of of while saving this your is life that the ventilator while because saving your your life new patients for an out because of your energy new patients agreed on for an their out own of energy agreed then on later their own also the major then later cause also for information the major as well. cause for information That's been as known well. for now sometime That's and been known for so now strategies sometime to and address so strategies a yes to whether it's address cove nineteen a yes induced whether or it's otherwise cove nineteen induced need or to take otherwise into account the fact that then need later to take contributes into account to that the fact inflammatory that then later burden contributes patients to that with they inflammatory burden patients with they as an academic. You've done functional as an academic. You've done functional genomics work that identified candidate genes that contribute to inflammatory disorders. Such as arts this led to a focus on the NAP. Jean what is Napkin? And what role does it play in the inflammatory cascade? Yes well that's That's exactly right. Dan we Early on when I was a cheap home area at Johns Hopkins the New Year early. Two thousands we are group there. through clinical trials that was published in the New England Journal in this clinical. We identified the fact that the later contributed some mortality in they already s and and the hypothesis was that the way that Ben later contributes mortality. It was it was causing excessive increases in inflammation so at that point my laboratory My Research Laboratory at Hopkins we We've again focusing very Aggressively on trying to identify genes. That might be involved in. How the ventilator induced that inflammation and This is how we found that gene. That's called NAM. Nam stands for nicotinamide Fossil Rizal Transfer. A is a protein that has a normal function inside the cell. But when it's secreted from the cell floats in the bloodstream. It is a very potent planetary mediator. And the reason we think NANCE's A pretty novel target for then later induced lung injury and they are s in general including cove in nineteen induced area. Is that this. Gene is induced very early. It's one of the first genes induce patient or a animals exposed to Mechanical Ventilation is this unique to the lungs or is this across inflammatory
Why An Experimental Therapy for Inflammatory Disorders Could Help the Fight Against COVID-19
"As a researcher Joe Garcia Applied Functional Genomics to understanding genes that contribute to inflammatory disorders such as acute respiratory distress syndrome or arts as founder and CEO of the Biotech Company. Akwa Lung Therapeutics. He's working to advanced therapies to hit these novel targets to treat unchecked inflammation with the company's lead experimental therapeutic candidate targeting arts. We spoke to Garcia about the company's arts. Therapy how it works. And why it's time we focus given the cove nineteen pandemic Joe. Thanks for joining us. To be here thing we're going to talk about Aqua Lung Therapeutics Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome or arts and your efforts to develop a treatment for this condition. Let's start with ours though. What is it and how big a health challenge? Does it represent about half a million people. Every year get air F- Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome in the United States alone. And you know close to two million. Maybe globally so it's it's not a uncommon Disorder But it is a extremely challenging to treat disorder because mortality of this. Anyone that had gets a yard is Thirty to forty percents In the US and it's probably higher Outside the US what makes it so challenging to treat? Well it's It's sort of the ultimate in inch in the stress to To a human being in that They have multiple attacks on a variety of Oregon starting with the lung though the the most common causes of ARD s are sepsis which is infection in the bloodstream and trauma and Smoking elation will do it and that Curiel and viral pneumonias and so as a result the starts off with inflammation in the lung from those particular Causes the inflammation becomes waves waves of amplify inflammation that starts to affect other organs. Like your kidneys and heart and ultimately patients with AIDS wind up. They don't survive. They die from that multi organ failure and that he's organs weren't able to sustain the inflammatory injury we've heard a lot about the respiratory challenges that can occur to people infected with the covid nineteen virus are the ones who end up on respirators suffering from arts and what role does arts play in the mortality of patients with Covid nineteen arches probably the primary cause of death in most of the cove in nineteen patients. At least that's what the the reports from China and elsewhere suggesting Covid NINETEEN INDUCE. Cards has a lot of similarities to garden variety area but it also has some unique changes that that may not be typical. Air S. as well and The ventilator Think this is an important part of the story. That patients with With Kobe nineteen viral infection or other causes of Respiratory distress like I mentioned substance or bacterial pneumonia trauma and you have Increasing respiratory distress your lungs. Start to fill with Lewis and the work of breathing when your lungs are. Our full of fluid is very very rate. So these patients generally run out of Energy the fatigue and they need then later to help with their respiration and so the the the the irony of of this is that the ventilator while saving your life because your new patients for an out of energy agreed on their own then later also the major cause for information as well. That's been known for now sometime and so strategies to address a yes whether it's cove nineteen induced or otherwise need to take into account the fact that then later contributes to that inflammatory burden patients with they as an academic. You've done functional

Doctor Van Lynn received his PhD genetics from Stanford University School of Medicine and earned degrees in both economics and molecular biology at the University of California at Berkeley. I'd like to start by asking. How regenerative medicine therapies are different than traditional pharmaceuticals and biologics? And what value can they bring questions? So regenerative medicine really consists of several different types of their include cell therapy gene therapy gene modified cell therapy and then tissue engineering approaches so those four different sectors. If you've will comprise collectively the the regenerative medicine space and regenerative general medicine is fundamentally different from traditional pharmaceuticals or approaches that have been used to develop biological their babies. Because typically those therapies are very specific entities or single agent therapies that hacked through a discrete well defined mechanism of action. Cells are different in. That sells can actually work through multiple different mechanisms of action so they're multidimensional in that regard. Gene therapy is different because gene therapy is not meant to provide a temporary fix or a specific problem or a specific. But it's meant to provide in some instances permanent you're or a long term cure by addressing the underlying defect that is affecting the patient in causing the condition or causing the disease so gene therapy and cell therapy or a little bit different from one another in terms of how they differ from pharmaceuticals and blogs but together they really represent a broad approach kind of a paradigm shift. If you will in terms of how people think about approaching the treatment The whole range of different diseases and conditions that are really not well served under current standards of care and that regard that really gets to the type of the value that can bring because you can imagine that in contrast the putting somebody on lifetime therapy of different types of medicines to help mitigate the damage specific disease or condition if you can actually offer up a specific intervention whether it be one or a series of administrations of cell therapy or gene modified cell therapy or gene therapy approach and affect long term durable improvement and even cure for many patients. That's a pretty exciting prospect and it also stated with a Bali now. It also creates some potential challenges. Because we're still trying to figure out. How do we establish a reimbursement? Framework for therapies. That might be single or a single administration. That could be cured. It have an impact over many many years. But there's actually been some pretty good progress on that front so both in terms of the way that these therapies work and also the impact they can have in some cases over very long timeframes. I think it's it's pretty exciting. I agree completely. I think it's really exciting. To think about cheers for diseases that have been managed or even untreatable up to this point and also What you mentioned about a new way to look at it is also really important. Because they're more expensive but you have the potential to cure or a therapy. That will last for a long period of time. And so it's exciting to think about these new therapies in along those lines. I was hoping you could share with listeners. In recent years what have been some of the most exciting clinical breakthroughs regarding regenerative medicine. Well it's actually pretty exciting in the sense that there's a growing number of things that either been validated through clinical development now approved by the FDA and other regulators on the cell therapy front. The Car T. therapies. Which are gene modified cell? Therapy approaches? Current therapies are actually tallahassee. You take cells derived from the patient themselves. You genetically modified those cells reintroduce into the patient to help fight the cancer that has in fact. By definition these are patients that have failed other forms of therapies other forms of intervention and the progress on that front has been incredibly exciting where we see several approaches. They've really had an impact. In terms of improving clinical outcomes in many cases for patients. They really had no other no other hope because they had exhausted all the available treatment options and then they were basically treated using these types of approach so those approaches are pretty exciting. I think bed some of the gene therapy there. Several gene therapy products that have been approved over the past several years whether it's Things from Bluebird or he'll chance Ma from onto partis or a vaccine which is the company that Nevada's acquired or looks turn up from spark therapeutics. All of these have shown very very exciting response levels among the patients that are being treated very very high levels of Progress Clinical progress or curative effects or demonstrable improvement in the primary clinical outcomes. And I think in many respects these just represent the tip of the iceberg. If you will in terms of things that are that are coming Recently actually just a few days ago out at the J. P. Morgan Conference in San Francisco the Alliance for Regenerative Medicine. And every year they do state of the industry overview and they present a lot of different data that really describes the phenomenal progress in terms of clinical development and companies advancing to the various phases of clinical development or seeing more more things in phase two and phase three and then also highlighting other things that are well-positioned or could be well positioned for approval. Within the next couple of years. I think all of the data that was presented this year really reinforces and underscores the fact that the regenerative medicine sector and community as a whole is making incredible progress that is attracting live investments a lot of partnerships and as making really good progress with respect to regulatory and clinical side of things. I mean we now have over a thousand programs that are in clinical development the regenerative medicine sector and I think that that really covers a lot of really exciting opportunities that that a lot of people have hope and optimism around in terms of how can change medicine as we know.

The Link Between Vitamin D levels and Coronavirus Mortality Rates
"So D- what's the topic for this week this week? We're talking about vitamin D and its relationship to our immune system all good good. Yeah there is some new research talking about how deficiencies in Vitamin D May. Put People at higher risk for the For complications for Corona virus. Oh that's certainly a topic of conversation these days. So what what is this? Study that you've discovered. Yeah actually This this research study is out of northwestern. University and the team conducted a statistical analysis of data from hospitals and clinics across a ten different countries. They they looked at China France Germany Italy Iran South Korea Spain Switzerland the UK and also the unit United States. Yeah and so. What they found was that patients from countries with the high Cova mortality rate such as Italy Spain and the UK had lower levels of Vitamin D. compared to patients in countries that were not as severely affected. Okay and So what this means. Is that They they WANNA to Examine the vitamin D levels after they noticed that You know there were higher mortality rates in these countries and They kind of ruled out other things that might be The cause so they thought maybe you know maybe other countries had lower rates because they had better healthcare and that type of thing and they kind of ruled a lot of that out and came down to just you know saying they saw a significant correlation correlation with Vitamin D deficiency. Now one thing I wanted to add to. This is that You know we've known this for years about Vitamin D. That there is a large and growing amount of research that shows that at least fifty percent of the general population in the US. is deficient in vitamin D and about about eighty percent of infants. When they're born. What are deficient in Vitamin D? Yeah yeah now I mean we have to think about you. Know why would we? Why would that be happening? And apparently it's vitamin D deficiency. It's not just here in the US so it's everywhere in fact it's becoming probably the most common medical condition in the world and it's probably because people do not get in they don't get enough of it in their foods And they also are not getting the net way we naturally get it which is from being out in the Sun Right. Yeah so you know so. That's that's one of the things that they discovered now with Cova. What they found was that People the reason why people have a higher mortality risk with vitamin D deficiency is because what vitamin D does is. It helps To Quell this thing. That's called the cytokine storm that happens in immune system when people are exposed to this. So what the Saito Crime Storm? Cytokine storm is. It's like this huge overreaction of the immune system that happens when you are exposed to something like a virus and normally your when you detect some something foreign like a virus your body will know create some inflammatory response to it and It won't go into overdrive like what's happening with this and so We're finding that vitamin D is kind of what regulates this the the production of these compounds cut cytokines. And that's why when you have a low amount of vitamin D in your body. You don't have enough of it to to stop this from happening so And what the site. Oh kind storm does is it can severely damage lungs and lead to what is known as acute respiratory distress and death in patients so And and this is what seems to kill majority of covered nineteen patients. It's not the destruction of the lungs by the virus itself. But it's the complications from the misdirected fire from the immune system it's like all this inflammation and what we call a cytokine storm so so let's spell site a kind C. Y. T. O. K. I. Any CYTOKINE cytokine. Okay okay. Yeah so. That's what's really happening when these people die of of the corona virus. It's because of this type of responsible and often this. Is that what this is what. This research is showing his set. That often times is what's happening so Now interestingly enough people we've been we've been learning about the fact that people who are at higher risk have conditions like the old people are the elderly who tend to typically be deficient in vitamin D We are also seeing people who have a heart disease Obesity diabetes these are conditions that are often associated with a vitamin D deficiency. So you know so. It's not surprising when I read this research to to see those correlations happening among those populations of people So when you run across a typical client does does that person typically have a deficiency in Vitamin D. Well the only way to know if you have a deficiency is to get a blood test so and I don't know necessarily that every single Wellness check that people have like if you go to your to get your annual checkups. Every year they do blood work to test your blood sugar levels and your cholesterol and all of that It seems that Vitamin D. Testing is becoming more routine. Now because of the fact that we know that vitamin D deficiency is so common So I know that when I go. That's something that shows up on. My lab works when I do it. And so that's that's really the only way you know if you're deficient is if you have a blood test and they're they're measuring the amount of vitamin D that is Circulating in your blood but especially the main storage form of it because vitamin D is actually a type of vitamin that we we call it fat soluble which means that. We need it to be absorbed into our bodies through fats. So when we if we if we're eating any food sources of vitamin D to Get we also have to have some fat in our diet so and I always say healthy fats like olive oil coconut oil. The types found in the foods themselves like typically foods that have vitamin D or things like egg yolks and a fish and Dairy products they tip typically naturally contain vitamin D. And they are in the fatty part of those foods I'm sorry vitamin D is in the fatty part of those food. So we absorb it easily when we eat those foods If so we need it and we we can store it in our liver and in our fat cells so where we store it is important and then when you get a blood test and you're looking for the level in your blood it's usually an indication of how much is in the storage also because your body draws vitamin D out of the storage. When it's needed

COVID-19: What the Autopsies Reveal
"Gibbs reports on how pathologists are starting to get a much closer look at the damage that covert nineteen does to the body by carefully examining the lungs hearts kidneys and other organs of people who have died while infected with the novel Corona Virus. Wait spoke with experts at the Cleveland Clinic. And the University of Washington who have performed these high risk autopsies very few of which have been done so far in the United States. Covert nineteen is a new disease and doctors have been struggling to figure out how best to treat it putting people on ventilators as always a last resort for other diseases typically about half the patients who go onto a ventilator do not survive but Kobe nineteen patients seemed to do even worse on mechanical ventilation a study in the UK found that only about a third of corona virus patients survived that experience and in a report published on April Twenty second in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers found even more alarming outcomes recently in New York City analyzing data from twelve large New York hospitals during March. They found that out of three hundred twenty patients on ventilators. Two hundred and eighty two died so only about one in nine survived mechanical ventilation. We know this. New Corona virus damages the lungs. But how exactly does it differ in important ways from influenza and other VIRAL INFECTIONS? Some experts have suggested that the virus can infect and damage the heart as well and maybe the kidneys or even the brain when people are seriously ill with Cova nineteen. They seem to be at higher. Risk of blood clots. But it's really hard to determine from lab tests and fuzzy medical images whether it's the virus damaging these other organs or whether the body's own immune system fouling up the works as it generates massive inflammatory response to combat the corona virus. Any kind of lung injury can result in acute respiratory distress syndromes. This is a disease process that we've known about for a long. It's a very typical pattern of injury that we see in the lungs when they're injured for many many different kinds of reasons. That's disarray Marshall. A pathologist at the University of Washington. She says that it's often the cascading organ failure triggered by acute respiratory distress syndrome or A. Rds The causes elderly people to die from influenza and firefighters to die from smoke inhalation and cancer patients to die from reactions to chemotherapy. The pressing question. We need to answer for Kobe. Nineteen is whether it's just a rds that makes the disease deadly or whether this new diseases different and even more complicated to treat them what doctors have seen before well if you watch TV you know what medical examiners do when they want to figure out what killed somebody. There's just no substitute for a thorough and detailed autopsy earlier this month researchers published the first English language autopsy results on people who died after becoming infected with the novel Corona Virus. The paper appeared in the American Journal of Clinical Pathology on April tenth. It describes to interesting cases both from Oklahoma case one was seventy seven year old man who had cycled between fever and chills for six days before finally calling for an ambulance on March twentieth. He had high blood pressure and some other health issues but no cough on the trip to the hospital. He was gasping for air and his heart stopped by the time they arrived at the emergency room. It was too late. The gentleman had not seen a doctor for his fever. He had not been tested for Kobe. Nineteen so it wasn't clear what had caused the heart attack taking his life. The Medical Examiner's team in Oklahoma City decided that it was important to find out they swabbed the man's nasal passages and also his lungs both swabs tested positive for the SARS. Kobe virus and chest xrays showed what they described as complete white out in. What would normally be dark empty lung? Cavities doing an autopsy on a Kobe. Positive body is risky but they had the special protective equipment and high containment room. They needed to do it and maybe they could learn something that would help save some of the hundreds of thousands of people around the world who will fight cove in nineteen for their lives in the months to come so they laid his body on the dissecting table and they opened them up. The team contacted a well-known lung pathologist at the Cleveland Clinic to help them interpret what they saw especially as they examined tissue samples from bears organs under the microscope. My name is Sanjay Mukhopadhyay. I'm director of pathology at the Cleveland Clinic. Autopsies give you another deeper look into tissue. That is actually several layers of resolution higher than what you can get from a history a physical examination routine laptops even the highest resolution CD. Scans none of them. Even approach the resolution that you can get from an autopsy. The medical examiner had noticed that. This man's lungs were two to three times heavier than usual. A Common Consequence of AIDS pathologist actually referred to that syndrome by a different name. One that describes the end result of the disease lung cells. They call it diffuse. Lv alert damage in that gentleman. We found diffuse Alveoli damage under the microscope. When you take a breath and it goes down your windpipe. The windpipe actually branches and to do and when goes into the left lung and one goes into the right and then those branches of the windpipe branch like the branches of a tree. You know they get smarter than sponsored smaller as you go. Further and further away and the end point of the branch is what we call an Lvn Louis or colloquially you can call it an air sac and what that is just a very tiny balloon. You need a microscope to see it. And they're just cows and thousands of those little balloons in the lung. That's what makes up the lamp so each time. You inhale you inflate thousands of microscopic Vealy as the ED enters into that little balloon with oxygen in it. The point of the balloon is to take that oxygen into the bloodstream. The wall of the balloon has little blood vessels in it so in the normal language. Dicap- breath the oxygen goes from the middle of the balloon into the one of the balloon. And that's where the arteries are and the oxygen goes into your blood cells. Red Blood Cells. We call them. And then that Dixit back to the heart and the heart center the oxygen to the rest of the body for this exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide to work properly. The thin lining of the air SAC has to be very close to the walls of the blood vessels. Now what happens in in actually in any severe viral infection is that the virus starts causing damage reading a digest. I which is the back of the throat and then all the way down so all the way down the windpipe down the branches to the smallest branches and then into the air sex and when it gets into the AIR SACS. Call that a viral pneumonia. What's happening is actually. The virus is damaging the walls of the those little webs of capillaries that surround the walls of the air. Sacs start to leak proteins fluids white blood cells and debris from destroyed lung seep into the air sacs the debris clogs the balloons. But maybe even more important it also thickens the walls of the air sacs. Literally it's making a barrier for the oxygen to go from the middle of the relates to the bloodstream and so this is the reason that oxygen levels are so low in these patients who are very sick from ovid. The researchers concluded that case won the seventy seven year old man had died from Kobe. Nineteen even though he had never been diagnosed with it. Mukhopadhyay said he was struck by similar. The pattern of organ damage was to what he's used to seeing from autopsies on people who died from other viral infections. It's actually very similar to what happens in influenza and at just to mention a few other examples. Sars you know the SARS from two thousand to two thousand three identical merced Middle Eastern disparaties syndrome identical findings. I did autopsies and deported them on H. One and one when that happened the swine flu identical findings and I give you one more example. You know the when the vaping thing happened just recently and many people were getting sick from the most sick patients but actually developing diffuse. Lbj damage case too was different. This man had to the hospital a day earlier on March nineteenth. He was only forty two but had myo tonic. Muscular dystrophy a hereditary disease that causes muscles to weaken or atrophy. Sometimes so much that food can back up from the stomach. Go down the wrong tube into the lungs where causes bacterial pneumonia? He felt sharp abdominal pains and went to the hospital where a cat scan showed fluid in his lungs just hours later his heart gave out any passed away although he was labelled as community acquired pneumonia and died and was found to be covert positive. The microscopic examination. This patient does not support the idea that he died of Gobert so there was no damage instead. They found food particles and bacterial infection in the airway clear signs of aspirational pneumonia. So case to died with cove in nineteen but he did not die of covert nineteen. Which makes it very interesting because it brings up the issue of. How often is this happening? How often are people who are PAS? Different went on a nasal swab dying of things other than Kobe. I put that question to Desert Marshall whom we heard from earlier. I'm the director of autopsy after De Services at the University of Washington Medical Center since early. March Marshall has performed more than a dozen autopsies of people who died after testing positive for corona virus infection. She says the results of those autopsies have been submitted to a Medical Journal for publication but are still undergoing peer review. Marshall says that the risk of infection that this fires poses has changed how they perform all autopsies regardless of whether the person was suspected to have covert nineteen. Or not so. We've actually started to swab all of our students and get those results before will perform an autopsy in our facility. That isn't the negative pressure sweet so his Marshall also found that like case to in Oklahoma some patients are dying of something else but turning out to have corona virus infection as well we have not. We have not had any unexpected positive results yet. It's still a limited number but of the probably fifteen that we've done. We have not had a positive comeback where we weren't expecting it. And what about the finding from case one in Oklahoma here in Washington are most of the Kobe? Nineteen patients dying from more or less standard AIDS or the autopsies revealing evidence of the virus infecting and damaging other organs as well hearing concerns of the clinicians and folks on the front lines there's the virus infecting the heart or is it just kind of secondary affects related to the critical illness. Is there excess? Clotting related to this disease. Different things like that. It looks like it's helping us to see that Cova did is actually causing typical acute respiratory distress syndrome. Initially there were thoughts that it was behaving a bit differently. But I think as we get more numbers of people and there's less of the individual variability the vast majority of these cases are showing the typical pathologic features of acute respiratory distress and Which we call a diffuse Alveoli damage. Pathology it does look like it. Is that phenomenon and there's not something Speaking out pathologically. That's different in a way that will inform them that you know. They should probably continue to use. The evidence based tried and true therapies for areas in particular marshal says. They aren't seeing an unusual number of small blockages and blood vessels. That would require treatment beyond the usual blood thinners such as Heparin nor has her group or other. She has heard from around. The country found the corona virus causing serious heart infections in the autopsies. They
Symptoms of Coronavirus: Early Signs, Serious Symptoms
"What does it mean to be sick with current Oh virus we typically think I probably of shortness of breath symptom that will determine whether you should go to the doctor. You have a fever could lose your sense of smell. Maybe some stomach problems. Who What does this virus actually? Due to the body Meredith Wiedeman team of reporters from science looked at what we know of its effect system by system. It's not a complete picture yet but researchers are starting to pull it together. Okay Meredith how are you? I'm fine how are you Sarah? I'm good. This is a very comprehensive story from nose to Toews. I think they saw in one description of the work. Yes and so what happens? When a person comes in contact with the novel coronavirus. He essentially they inhale it and respiratory droplets. They might also pick it up on fingers that they then placed to their face from an inanimate surface the virus finds a welcoming home in the upper respiratory tract. A back of the throat the nose. Because there there are cells that are rich in what are known as ace two receptors and these are receptors that live on the surface of some cells and that the virus needs in order to get into those cells. We don't know the numbers but some people are just gonNA clear the infection and move on with their lives. Right they are. They're going to either be a symptomatic not even being aware they are infected and they can be very infectious in this stage or they might feel crummy they might have Malays. They might have aches fever. That really within a week or so start to recover ordered. They might go into a more serious phase of the disease. This is when the virus makes its way into the lower respiratory tract. That's right if your immune system can't beat back the virus while except in your nose and throat then the risk goes up of marching down your windpipe and into what we call the respiratory tree. The whole system of Airways that leads to the far reaches of the lung. And that's where the virus again finds a welcoming home because the tiny air sacs called Alveoli where oxygen exchange occurs with the blood also adds an abundance of these ace to receptors on their cell surfaces. And this is a problem because if the immune system goes on the attack these tiny spaces in the lungs you can get really serious problems. Sure it becomes what we know as pneumonia and ammonia simply as lung inflammation. This particular virus can cause a really rip roaring lung inflammation but these patients may have in quotes. Mild the MONJA. Although I don't think anyone has described how they feel as mildly affected or they may turn a severe sharp corner where they begin a rapid downhill. Slide into what we know is acute respiratory distress syndrome where. There's just a raging pneumonia and on their chest xrays or C. T. Scans you're GonNa see white where you should have seen black. Lack representing air in an white. Is this whole inflammatory? Response trying to beat back the virus but doing damage itself. Alveoli walls breakdown either can be clots in the little tiny blood vessels that supply the OBVIO- light nurse. Just a real STU real mess and when people deteriorate very seriously enough deny one thing that researchers are trying to understand is how serious is this immune response and would intervening at that point. Be Helpful for patients. If you have just a regular immune response and you start giving immune suppressing drugs your disarming your your Mahameed in a minority of gravely. Ill patients the immune system goes into this really damaging hyper immune state. Call that a cytokine storm when levels of certain chemical signals and the blood. Go absolutely off the charts and in the end what happens is the immune cells of the body began attacking healthy tissues and you can get widespread kwoh-ting you get the blood. Vessels leaking blood pressure plummeting. It's a catastrophe for the whole body. So in efforts to combat that out of Control Immune response they are deploying drugs that go after specific ones of these chemical signaling molecules known as cytokines and just to be clear here. Most of what we're going to be talking about is for severely affected patients people who are in the ICU people who are coming into the ER. So let's turn to the heart and blood vessels meredith. This is something surprisingly being seen in maybe twenty percent of patients. Yes it's clear that the heart and blood vessels are a target for Kovic and just how unwise still being sorted out. Let one paper in. Jama cardiology found heart damage in nearly twenty percent of more than four hundred patients who were hospitalized for the disease in. Wuhan another found forty four percent of patients in an ICU. There had abnormal heart rhythms. And then there's also an increased tendency to blood clotting that in a Dutch. Icu nearly forty percent of patients had blood. That was clotting abnormally. These are extremely problematic issues and people. That are already very sick from pneumonia. What has been seen happening to people's hearts there seems to be heart inflammation and it's possible because the heart lining and the blood vessel lining just like the cells in the lungs and the nose is rich in these ace two receptors again. They're the viruses port of entry into into cells. So the cells could be. It's possible that they're being in the heart. And the vessels directly inflamed. It's possible there at the lack of oxygen. Getting through because of the problems in the lung is doing additional damage to her vessels could be that a societal kind storm releasing all these inflammatory molecules again and sells remember they attack normal healthy tissue and that can include the linings of blood vessels so there are these multiplex of potential causes that may indeed vary between patients as to what's causing let. But it's clear that there's cardiac and vessel damage in a significant number of severely. Ill patients let's take a turn now to the brain. This is something that we've seen some scary reports on actually of inflammation in the brain and we've also seen law sense of smell in corona virus. Patients is that something that's related to the brain it might be that's not been established but there is a direct connection from so-called olfactory neurons. The ones that light you smell running from the nose up to. It's called the olfactory bulb which connects to the brain as one of our sources. Put It as a nice sounding feary who I have to go and prove that it actually extends to the brain but there are more general brain effects. That don't trace back to loss of sense of smell for one thing. The bloods increased tendency to clot can put patients at risk of having strokes. There's also a problem in that. A lot of these folks developed kidney failure that in itself can cause delirium and problems for the brain in addition there can also be a quote unquote sympathetic storm. It's sort of an overreaction of the nervous system that somewhat analogous to the site of kinds storm and that's common after traumatic brain injury some people with Cova nineteen can lose consciousness. So there's just a whole panoply of potential brain symptoms another symptom that I'd heard of before reading this story and I haven't heard most of this. Was that people can have symptoms in their gut. They can have diarrhea. They can have upset stomach. Does this mean that you know the virus pieces of the virus are surviving digestion? Yes apparently it does. And one of the suggestions is that patients are swallowing their own respiratory secretions and that the virus is carried live and somehow survives the acid environment in the stomach to land in the small intestine which is again replete. With these ace two receptors. An so virus can establish. Wow a robust infection. There that's it's thought what's leading to diarrhea nausea and other problems in perhaps on average about twenty percent of patients across studies. I WANNA take a step back here and just talk about how all these different systems being affected kind of expand the pool of people who have pre existing conditions that would make corona virus infection. Really dangerous for them. Can you talk a little bit about that? Sure so since we were just talking about kidney disease in the kidneys. That's one of the organ systems. Where if you have a pre existing kidney disease that gives you basically a handicap when you start this race with this new virus than we think of something like diabetes harms the kidneys. So if you start with a lower baseline of kidney function these chronic kidney patients with pre existing kidney disease are at seriously greater risk of developing acute kidney injury during the infection in the same way diseases that affect the blood vessels will also put patients at higher risk. High blood pressure diabetes again congestive heart failure all these kinds of pre-existing disease just make patients that much more vulnerable. Should they become infected? So how is research like this? It's so preliminary. Were really just beginning to understand the progression of this infection. How will this help with interventions or treatments? I think it will certainly offer clues and sign posts. There will be new discoveries that hopefully will lead to highly effective drugs but we have already a good deal of information that points the way to either existing drugs or targets for drugs now being developed knowing for instance the outline of a site a kind storm which is something that can be triggered by other viral infections or bacterial infections. We have a starting place with that. We have these drugs already being deployed and other inflammatory states like rheumatoid arthritis that you can then say well. If they're beating back a certain site assign one of these out of Control Chemical Messengers in arthritis may be they will also be back some piece of the cytokine storm. That's going on in these severely ill patients and so you have such drugs being deployed in clinical trials. What we know about the ace two receptor and it's detailed protein. Structure has been defined by a couple of new important papers hopefully will give us new unique targets to actually prevent binding there. Which would be terrific. Yeah so what? Was it like trying to report on this? Big Mix of peer reviewed preprinted small clinical studies firsthand reports. Those kinds of things was very challenging. Every scientist and physician we interviewed really added the caveat. This is science on the fly. Our knowledge today may be completely eclipsed a month from now or what we're thinking about how this diseases is acting may be proven wrong within three weeks. This is obviously an ongoing endeavor to understand how the disease progresses what conditions set you up for getting extra sick and then you know the mechanisms that are happening at the cellular level. Where is the best information going to come from? Do you think. Is this something where people need to set up. These robust studies that you described. Are they doing that now? Yes in fact. They are doing it but hampered by the fact that they're trying to at the same time in many cases take care of desperately ill. Patients cleverly does the analogy goes trying to build the plane. While you're flying at this information is going to be constrained or imperfect because of the situation. It doesn't mean it's not going to be important.
Are Ventilators Actually Helping?
"We've focused on ventilators on this podcast. Because they seem to be the prime medical intervention we have at the moment but more troubling data has come out about how effective ventilators are to affect covert outcomes at all a new blood. Clotting complication is worrying another look at New Zealand where they're so successful against the disease. Their goal is now to eradicate it and a snapshot at the realities of Testing through the lens of one small Texas town. The numbers are all over the place this morning. Iran reported the lowest number of daily new infections and month and new infections in Russia fell for the second day in a row though. There are some who questioned the veracity of official numbers from those states. Meanwhile the number of cases and deaths in Germany and Spain jumped overnight cases in Germany increased by two thousand three hundred fifty two to total of one hundred. Forty eight thousand forty six and deaths increased by two hundred fifteen to five thousand ninety. Four Spain saw an increase of diagnosed cases from two hundred eight thousand three hundred eighty nine to two hundred thirteen thousand twenty four. While the number of deaths there was up by four hundred forty from the day earlier all that said across the board in more places we continue to see numbers plateauing up by a little somedays down by a little some days but there's no consistency in either direction. I E no run of down days in a row suggesting the curve has been broken and no run of up days in a row suggesting new sustained outbreaks new data. From New York's largest hospital system shows that eighty eight percents of Corona Virus. Patients who were placed on ventilators did not survive. Meanwhile doctors are seeing a mysterious complication involving blood clots showing up in many fatal. Cova nineteen cases quoting the Washington Post. A paper published in the Journal. Jama about New York. State's largest health system suggests a reality that like so much else about the novel. Corona virus confounds our early expectations. Researchers found that twenty percent of all those hospitalized died a finding that similar to the percentage who perish in normal times among those who are admitted for respiratory distress. But the numbers diverge more for the critically ill put on ventilators eighty eight percents of the three hundred twenty. Cova nineteen patients on ventilators. Who were trapped in the study died that compares with the roughly eighty percent of patients who died on ventilators before the pandemic according to previous studies and with the roughly fifty percent death rate some critical care doctors had optimistically hoped when the first cases were diagnosed and quotes in other words based on that data being put on a ventilator essentially saves no lives beyond what would have been expected suggesting that ventilators are ineffective in reversing cove in nineteen outcomes quoting again. The paper also found that of those who died. Fifty seven percent had hypertension forty one percent were obese and thirty four percent had diabetes which is consistent with risk factors listed by the Centers for Disease Control and prevention noticeably. Absent from the top of the list was asthma. As doctors and researchers have learned more about Kobe nineteen the less it seems that asthma plays a dominant role in outcomes. One other surprising findings from the study. Was that seventy percent of the patients. Sick enough to be admitted to the hospital did not have a fever. Fever is currently listed as the top symptom of Kovic nineteen by the CDC and for weeks many testing centers for the virus turned away patients if they did not have one. Davidson said that as a result of those findings north well is encouraging people with underlying health conditions such as hypertension and diabetes who are potentially exposed to the virus and who might not have a fever to consult with a doctor sooner rather than later and quotes.
Gilead's Remdesivir Efficacy Still Uncertain! Is Stemline Therapeutics a Buy?
"So I'm glad to be back and I have a great show for you all today. We have some real spicy stuff to get into. Some of them have commented on twitter. But yet it's it should be good so I'm GONNA start off today by talking about some biotech news. Some little updates that we got some press releases and then a follow up by talking about Gillian ads at Rim decively data. We're going to touch a little bit. On the New England Journal. Medicine study that they published followed up by a report that was provided by our friends at Stat News. So that's going to be good and then the final topic. I WanNa talk about is stem line. So you know. One benefit of being in this volatile environment is that there are buying opportunities right now and one that I do see is a company called stem line. So we're GONNA talk about them and why think thereby right now so with that? Let's get to some of the news that we saw this week and first thing I wanted to touch on his after sys mostly because I just talked about them in the last video but we saw actually in the last couple of weeks that the FDA has authorized after says to initiate a pivotal clinical evaluating multi stem cell therapy in patients with Cova nineteen with induced acute respiratory distress syndrome. So some of the stuff that I talked about in my previous video was that I wasn't sure if the face to that. They're currently undergoing with their collaborator. In Japan was going to be a pivotal study. And it looks like it will be for the Japanese system and then this study that they're launching that they launched in the last couple of weeks is going to be the pivotal study for them domestically here in the United States so the primary endpoint is ventilator. Free Days Through Day. Twenty eight and they're beginning to open sites this quarter so I'm not sure exactly what that means in terms of when we can expect data. I would think maybe late Q. Three probably in Q. Four we'd see some data for this which could be a big boost for the company. Also what we learned in at the risk of opening another can of a drama this company they announce a public offering a twenty two million shares at two dollars and twenty five cents for about fifty million dollars in proceeds. I did say that I was expecting them to announce another offering and that is what we saw earlier than I expected. I really thought that they were GonNa wait until maybe later in the year to do this but while the songs doing okay I guess it's a it's an opportunity to do so so with another fifteen million dollars in cash. This should give them another six months or so and you know if they do see some good data from this pivotal study it would likely boost the stock quite a bit more before they have to go ahead and raise money again. So that's after says. I'm still saying on the sidelines. I'm still not super confident. In that data we originally with their phase one so I have no real sense on whether or not I think the date is GonNa be positive but I hope it is that this can get rolled out and it can actually start helping patients that have covert nineteen and areas going to move quickly to immunogenetics which is a company that kind of fell off my radar ticker symbol. Is I m you? They have a compound called says a to Mab Guven Akin and yes. I did practice. That's all I can say. A properly for metastatic triple negative breast cancer and I kind of talked about is the potential for this drug. It's it's a unique formulation so that they can really target the cancer cells and hit them with this tailored that is toxic to all sales. But because it's tethered to something that specifically targets cancer cells it would primarily affect them and kill them so the primary indication they're looking for is triple negative breast cancer and they had done in a sense study to confirm their previous face through results and there was some concern with safety but the sense that he was actually stopped for compelling efficacy. So that's great news for them the PDF date is June. Second of this year. And we'll see if the FDA is going to go ahead and approve the drug so that they can search treating metastatic triple negative breast cancer patients. They have a plan readout for your cancer in the second half of twenty twenty and they're also still enrolling patients for positive her two negative medicine breast cancer so I think that that trial read out is going to be particularly important for the company. And I'M GONNA keep them on my radar and pay a little bit better attention because I think that if they do see positive data there. The company has a a much larger patient population. Go after so Yeah so it's good for them and hopefully they'll see a positive result at the PDF eight anime. Keep an eye out for that trial moving on. I WanNa talk a little bit about Amarin. Because they had their earnings report while ago and what we learned is that they're cute. One Twenty twenty revenue beat estimates at one hundred and fifty million dollars and I had said previously that. I thought their estimates were sandbagged in anticipation of better results. And that is what happened but unfortunately none of this matters because they do not have pan protection in the United States given the ruling that we heard a little while ago so regarding to the appeal and the generics the CEO is not expecting at risk launches. But they are willing to file an injunction. I've talked about that in the past. This is not new news but they did also say that. In the event of an appeal loss Amarin would be willing to launch a brand engineering version. So this is an interesting strategy in order to allow them to maintain market share in the space because if they launch a generic version immediately. You know by the time another generic comes to the stage Amazon's already going to generic Kinda solidifies their position in the markets. There's not going to be really an advantage to patients taking a another third party. Generic other than Amazon's now the only issue with this is that the generic price is going to have to be competitive with the other companies. That launched generics as well. So in this way they're gonNA lower the amount of total revenue. Get but there's a lot of uncertainty in the company. I'm still not sure what I'm GonNa do with my shares. The stock has bounced back a little bit. But you know if they don't win appeal I assume they're gonNA see further downside until we actually start to see the kinds of numbers that start coming in given the new pricing of generic version of Amarin. So we'll see we'll keep you posted on what I do. I'm tempted to buy a little bit more and lower my cost basis by I'm I don't feel great about that either. So we'll see all right. Let's talk about Gilead. Everybody so first thing I want to touch on with Gilead is this New England Journal. Medicine studied that they released regarding the compassionate use of Rendez severe for patients with severe cove. In nineteen so Gillian been at the forefront of the media when it comes to this rendez severe drug that they're hoping to get approved and they initially had rendez severe offered only as compassionate use for patients as is still undergoing phase. Three trials right now so some people who are really severe severely affected by cove nineteen could apply to to take severe and what they did is they published a study with fifty three patients who had taken it under this program and really it wasn't a placebo controlled trial so for me. There's no real conclusion to be drawn. They said that a majority of patients were discharged. But because there's nothing to compare it to doesn't really mean much Another thing that's worth complaining about for the studies that they didn't even measuring viral load. So we don't even know if patients that were taking Severe head lowered viral loads in. You know we could figure that out by comparing baseline to treat a data. But they didn't do that so it's Kinda left in the dark here. The company itself has terminated a study in China with severe patients because of low enrollment. And they're awaiting the publication of these data to announce in-depth review the result. So that's one thing that we can also look forward to see is the data that we're getting from this low enrollment patient population in China. And they are doing a mild to moderate disease study in China. So that's still ongoing. Takes been seeing on twitter. Pretty disappointing a lot of people complaining that the New England Journal of Medicine shouldn't publish the study given that it was you know. There's a conflict of interest and there's no placebo and you're not new to academia. You know it's a cartel. The big name journals really only published stuff. That's like really hot off the press type thing. So of course there's huge problems with this study and Gillian's not even shy to mention them in the discussion so they clearly outlined limitations of the study. And everybody that I've seen on twitter isn't really taking that into consideration they think Gilead just willfully blind to the fact that there's no control. Obviously they know that. And if you want to throw the New England Journal Medicine under the bus or publishing this year but throw the entire institution appear review under the bus. It's a horribly flawed system as somebody. Who's coming from academia? I've seen this all the time you know. These journals are a cartel that gate keep science. So that unless you know people or your science is so particularly compelling that they'd be willing to publish it but if you WanNa talk about the academic system and publishing. Let's have that conversation but to call out this study in particular is being. The true hope written the true problem in the world of publishing. This is not the one for you

We'll take a look at the recognition respiratory distress and failure respiratory distress encompasses both breathing too fast as walls too slow to maintain retain life. It's important to paramedic be able to recognize entreat both simple and complex admirable respiratory conditions in infants and children children as we stated earlier podcasts positive responsibilities treatments is often quite dramatic. It's quite common that a good outcome is seen after a risk where risks I would not so much a cardiac arrest. You will improve the chances of Rauch by being able to identify early at your assessment respiratory distress in the pediatric patient Shen and aggressively treated briefly review. The physiology of Vittori System Immolation about the adults and the pediatric patient is an active process. Ross both intercostal muscles and the diaphragm contract thereby lowering the pressure inside the lungs somewhere between three to five millimeters of mercury because of this lower pressure is compared to the outside atmospheric pressure. Air Rochas in gas exchange takes place in the which are covered by multiple strands of capillaries is because the gas in the Alveoli Lawrence high oxygen and according to the law of Diffusion Ostra will move out of the lungs and attached to the hemoglobin ago because of blood capillaries is high in carbon dioxide. The reversal happened with that. Carbon Dioxide is expelled to the air when the patient sales The metabolic rate pediatric patients is about fifty percent higher than that of an adult as a result. Pasha can have a much more rapid onset in the pediatric the education then the adult four are still nations present. According to the American Heart Association axios defined as a decreased arterial oxygen saturation zachery detected by pulse luxury or direct measurement of oxygen saturation in an arterial blood gas sample in our assessment of patients as we. Julie consider how `bout exist the pulse. Ox is less than ninety four percent. Now all we're looking at issues of Pasha. We must know the difference between how Park Samia Tastes. You have parts you as we said earlier. How does having a pulse ox? Symmetry of less than ninety four percent tissue have actually occurs when a particular region the body where it could be the body as a whole does not have an adequate oxygen supply. It's important to remember that is not the same thing as tissue hypoxia you nor does have always lead to tissue partial one. Good example of this is the patient who has a chronic condition with the amount of oxygen in the blood is low over a long period of time such as may be seen in the adult. COPD patient body may respond with a condition known as polycythemia. Yeah this is an increase of red blood cells help to maintain the oxygen content of the body by an increase in the amount of hemoglobin available. Let's take a look at hyper Arbia or an increase in the amount of carbon dioxide in the body. It's important to remember that when your patients hydrocarbon. The dilatory process is inadequate. It's also important to remember that. Carbon Dioxide is not a bad guy here just a byproduct of metabolise. Let's like everything else in life though too much. Carbon Dioxide can lead to robs any increase carbon dioxide will increase as doses. In your patient the most common bodily reaction to this is an increased respiratory rate the increased rate and depth occurs in attempt to blow off the excess carbon dioxide. After a while the child becomes so fatigued with this effort of breathing that he begins become sleepy at this point respiratory failure is just a few moments away with potential for respiratory arrest being very high a decrease in the patients love of consciousness. Office is an important symptom that clues you into an inadequate Villa Tori effort. The pediatric patients often go from being very anxious and educated to becoming. I mean very quiet sleepy. And just a few moments other symptoms that may occur with this condition include nasal flaring as wells retraction of the intercostal muscles there is a difference between respiratory distress and respiratory failure respiratory distress is often marked by an increased breathing rate as well as a greater effort in work. Breathe new your patient. Restaurants air comes about as those compensatory make noodles began to fail. Lead to inadequate oxygenation inadequate ventilation In respiratory distress your patient may be agitated Wallin failure.

When you're assessing the chop some of the symptoms of respiratory distress included an increased respiratory rate diminish bristles especially in the distant ally an increased heart rate a low pulse ox and the potential for cyanosis? Now keep in mind that cyanosis lakeside. And she should not wait. Until its appearance. Before you begin to take your patients nations respiratory status very seriously signs of respiratory failure include extreme tech in cardiac followed by Brand Cardi.
