Healthy Outcomes of Patients with COVID-19 Two Years after the Infection: A Prospective Cohort StudyDapeng Li, Xuejiao Liao, Zhi Liu, Zhenghua Ma, Jingke Dong, Guoqin Zheng, Mei Zi, Fang Wang, Qing He, Guobao Li, Zheng Zhang & Lei Liu
The long-term effect of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has been rarely known. This study aimed to investigate healthy outcomes of COVID-19 survivors up to 2 years after the infection. A total of 155 COVID-19 patients, who were discharged from Shenzhen Third People's Hospital from February 2020 to April 2020, were enrolled and followed up until March 4, 2022. COVID-19 survivors received questionnaires of long COVID symptoms and psychological symptoms, pulmonary function tests, chest computed tomography...
Treatment-related adverse events of PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors combined with CTLA-4 inhibitors in clinical trials: a meta-analysisZe Mi, Yunshu Zhang, Zhichao Feng, Jiahao Liu, Jianmin Wu, Hongpei Tan, Xiaoqian Ma, Zhenguo Liu & Pengfei Rong
PD-1/PD-L1 inhibitors in combination with CTLA-4 inhibitors are being tested in a number of ongoing clinical trials. As a result, it is critical to fully comprehend the toxicity characteristics of adverse events in combination therapy. This study aims to extensively compare the incidences and ORs of treatment-related adverse events between two combination strategies. The eligible articles were searched from PubMed, EMBASE and Cochrane databases for studies published between 1 January 2010 and 1 May 2021,...
Induction of Significant Neutralizing Antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 by a Highly Attenuated Pangolin Coronavirus Variant with a 104nt Deletion at the 3'-UTRShanshan Lu, Shengdong Luo, Chang Liu, Muli Li, Xiaoping An, Mengzhe Li, Jun Hou, Huahao Fan, Panyong Mao, Yigang Tong & Lihua Song
SARS-CoV-2 related coronaviruses (SARS-CoV-2r) from Guangdong and Guangxi pangolins have been implicated in the emergence of SARS-CoV-2 and future pandemics. We previously reported the culture of a SARS-CoV-2r GX_P2V from Guangxi pangolins. Here we report the GX_P2V isolate rapidly adapted to Vero cells by acquiring two genomic mutations: an alanine to valine substitution in the nucleoprotein and a 104-nucleotide deletion in the hypervariable region (HVR) of the 3′-terminus untranslated region (3′-UTR). We further report the...
Decreased echinocandin susceptibility in Candida parapsilosis causing candidemia and emergence of a pan-echinocandin resistant case in ChinaYating Ning, Meng Xiao, David S. Perlin, Yanan Zhao, Minya Lu, Yi Li, Zhengyu Luo, Rongchen Dai, Shengjie Li, Jiajun Xu, Lingli Liu, Hong He, Yun Liu, Fushun Li, Yuguang Guo, Zhongju Chen, Yingchun Xu, Tianshu Sun & Li Zhang
Candida parapsilosis is becoming a predominant non-albicans cause of invasive candidiasis (IC). Echinocandins are the preferred choice for IC treatment and prophylaxis. Resistance to echinocandins in C. parapsilosis has emerged in several countries, but little is known about the susceptibility profile in China or about mechanisms of resistance. Here, we investigated the echinocandin susceptibilities of 2523 C. parapsilosis isolates collected from China and further explored the resistance mechanism among echinocandin-resistant isolates. Anidulafungin exhibited the highest...
Pathogen-Host Adhesion between SARS-CoV-2 Spike Proteins from Different Variants and Human ACE2 Studied at Single-Molecule and Single-Cell LevelsXiaoxu Zhang, Bixia Hong, Peng Wei, Pengfei Pei, Haifeng Xu, Long Chen, Yigang Tong, Jialin Chen, Shi-Zhong Luo, Huahao Fan & Chengzhi He
The binding of the receptor binding domain (RBD) of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) spike protein onto human angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) is considered as the first step for the virus to adhere onto the host cells during the infection. Here, we investigated the adhesion of spike proteins from different variants and ACE2 using single-molecule and single-cell force spectroscopy. We found that the unbinding force and binding probability of the spike protein from...
Human parainfluenza 3 and respiratory syncytial viruses detected in pangolinsTengcheng Que, Jing Li, Yugan He, Panyu Chen, Wei Lin, Meihong He, Lei Yu, Aiqiong Wu, Luohao Tan, Yingjiao Li, Yanling Hu & Yigang Tong
Pangolins have gained increasing global attention owing to their public health significance as potential zoonotic hosts since the identification of SARS-CoV-2-related viruses in them. Moreover, these animals could carry other respiratory viruses. In this study, we investigated the virome composition of 16 pangolins that died in 2018 with symptoms of pneumonia using metagenomic approaches. A total of eight whole virus sequences belonging to the Paramyxoviridae or Pneumoviridae families were identified, including one human parainfluenza virus...
