    "Despite the perceived benefits of transfusion, research has indicated that exposure to allogeneic blood is associated with increased risks of morbidity and mortality following cardiac surgery. Adverse postoperative clinical outcomes, such as renal failure, stroke, pulmonary dysfunction, and infections have been reported. While these complications have been linked to as few as one to two units of donor red blood cells, the impact of patient outcome is believed to be dose-dependent," David C. Fitzgerald and Joseph J. Sistino emphasize (in the new textbook "Extracorporeal Circulation").

    Coronavirus researchers under Prof. Rolf Hilgenfeld of the University of Lübeck and Dr. Albrecht von Brunn of the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich published a research breakthrough in the highly ranked "EMBO Journal". They discovered how SARS viruses enhance the production of viral proteins in infected cells, so that many new copies of the virus can be generated. Other coronaviruses apart from SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 do not use this mechanism, thereby providing a possible explanation for the much higher pathogenicity of the SARS viruses.

    Cardiopulmonary bypass is necessary to adequately treat patients in the course of cardiac surgery. The kidney is the first to react to cardiopulmonary bypass. Postoperative acute renal failure is a much feared complication associated with high mortality after heart surgery, Frank Muench (Universitätsklinik Erlangen) emphasizes in the new textbook "Extracorporeal Circulation".
