    Yale researchers have identified a particular immune response pathway that leads to severe illness and death in people infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus. The study was published April 28 in the journal Nature. Researchers have known that once the COVID-19 virus infects the lungs it can trigger what has been called a “cytokine storm,” or an overactive immune response that leads to deadly inflammation in the lungs. For the new study, a Yale team led by postdoctoral fellow Esen Sefik, who is part of the lab of senior author Richard Flavell, studied the effects of SARS-CoV-2 infection in mice engineered to have a human immune system.

    "Cardiovascular events are as common in peritoneal dialysis as in hemodialysis, and the percent contribution of cardiovascular death ranges from 27 to 56% for peritoneal dialysis and from 25 to 44% for hemodialysis," Branko Braam et al. report. "Despite theoretical advantages the optimistic expectations of less patient morbidity and mortality on peritonealdialysis treatment have not been realized."

    "Acute lung injury following cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) is ubiquitous, widely variable in clinical acuity, and multifactorial. The characteristic pathophysiology includes injury to the alveolar-capillary membrane, increased permeability, and pulmonary edema. The lungs are unique in that they are both a source and a target of the inflammatory response to CPB," Dr. Christina Phelps (Columbus/USA) reports (in the new textbook Extracorporeal Circulation in Theory and Practice).
