Zinc is an essential mineral that is naturally present in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. Zinc is also found in many cold lozenges and some over-the-counter drugs sold as cold remedies.
Researchers presented two cases to highlight the impact of cold agglutinin syndrome on clinical presentations in COVID-19.
In a new study, researchers developed nanocomposite coatings to prevent surface contamination by a human coronavirus (HCoV).
Researchers summarize the toxic effects of nanoparticles on macrophages in vitro.
A new copper coating that kills bacteria quicker and in greater amounts than current formulations could soon be available for hospitals and other high-traffic facilities.
A summary of available knowledge on the monkeypox virus including pathogenicity, risk to the human population, and strategies that can help limit its spread.
When our cells process the oxygen we breathe and the food we eat every day in order to survive, they generate potentially toxic by-products popularly known as "free radicals".
Researchers reviewed the consequences of infection with sSARS-CoVs on the host DNA damage response.
Research by the University of Southampton shows future choices about trade, diet and climate change will be crucial in securing micronutrient food supplies for the UK.
The viral replication cycle is crucial for a virus to spread inside the body and cause disease. Focusing on that cycle in the hepatitis A virus (HAV), UNC School of Medicine scientists discovered that replication requires specific interactions between the human protein ZCCHC14 and a group of enzymes called TENT4 poly(A) polymerases.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that mothers to continue breastfeeding for two years or beyond.
A new study has found that a highly antibiotic-resistant strain of the superbug MRSA – methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus – has emerged in livestock in the last 50 years, probably due to widespread antibiotic use in pig farming.
Eating a larger proportion of protein while dieting leads to better food choices and helps avoid the loss of lean body mass, according to a Rutgers study.
Researchers reviewed nanoparticles (NPs) as next-generation whitening agents for teeth.
Investigators from the Women's Guild Lung Institute at Cedars-Sinai have discovered that zinc, a common mineral, may reverse lung damage and improve survival for patients with a deadly age-related condition known as idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF).
Hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) are often particularly difficult to treat because the pathogens have developed resistance to common antibiotics.
Zinc-filled oysters are often linked to improved libido and sexual activity, and now scientists at Flinders University are calling for more serious investigations into how marine organism compounds can help human fertility.
The Age-Related Eye Disease Studies (AREDS and AREDS2) established that dietary supplements can slow progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), the most common cause of blindness in older Americans. In a new report, scientists analyzed 10 years of AREDS2 data.
Researchers demonstrate how copper NPs can potentially be incorporated into filters, PPE, facemasks, and clothing to effectively inactivate SARS-CoV-2.
Scientists review the current research on how changes in diet can affect infection with SARS-CoV-2.
A new study aimed to describe the roles of certain specific mutations in SARS-CoV-2 strains, with respect to their ability to conformationally stabilize S-protein structure resulting in enhanced receptor-binding domain ACE2 binding.
