COVID-19 Cell Immunity

first_imgA new study from the Regenerative Bioscience Center at the University of Georgia is the first to suggest that COVID-19 does not directly damage taste bud cells.Contrary to previous studies that have shown damage may be caused directly by the virus particle, the researchers, led by Hongxiang Liu, associate professor of animal and dairy science in UGA’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, found that taste loss is likely caused indirectly by events induced during COVID-19 inflammation.An increasing number of COVID-19 patients have reported losses of smell and/or taste, prompting the CDC to add it to the growing list of symptoms for COVID-19. Recent research shows 20-25% of patients now report a loss of taste.“More alarming is the rate of patients reporting loss of taste at a later date, sometime after exposure to the virus,” said Liu. “This is something we need to keep a careful eye on.”Published in ACS Pharmacology & Translational Science, the study further indicates that taste bud cells are not vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection, because most of them do not express ACE2, a gateway that the virus uses to enter the body.”This study isn’t the first to study ACE2 expression in the oral cavity,” said Liu. “But it is the first to show, specifically in relation to coronavirus and taste bud cell survival, that there are likely other cell death mechanisms at play.”Liu and her colleagues wanted to find out whether ACE2 was expressed specifically in taste bud cells, as well as when this receptor first emerges on oral tissue cells during fetal development, by studying mice as a model organism.Although the mouse version of ACE2 isn’t susceptible to SARS-CoV-2, studying where it’s expressed in mice could still help clarify what’s happening when people become infected and lose the sense of taste, given that mouse and human share similar expression patterns of genes.“Mice have a different cellular copy of ACE2, making them impervious to SARS-CoV-2 infection,” said Liu. “A logical first step was to genetically engineer a model to examine the ACE2 receptor expression in wild type mice, to provide insights into what happens in people.”By analyzing data from oral cells of adult mice, the researchers found that ACE2 was enriched in cells that give the tongue its rough surface, but couldn’t be found in most taste bud cells. That means the virus probably does not affect taste loss through direct infection of these cells.“It’s clear from the data, that future designs of therapeutics directed at ACE2 receptors would likely not be as effective in treating taste loss of patients suffering from COVID-19,” said Liu.According to the team, more researchers have jumped into studying coronavirus and have published more data for smell loss than taste.“Anosmia coronavirus research is being published at a faster pace,” said Liu. “This is the only COVID-19 research that we know of, that involves the mechanisms of taste loss. Taste loss in the tongue is more complex and harder to validate, because of the complexity of cells, tissue structures, and the limited expression level of the ACE2 receptor.”For more information about the Regenerative Bioscience Center, visit rbc.uga.edu.last_img read more

UK pensions regulator opens major DB funding consultation

first_imgDavid Fairs, TPR executive director for regulatory policyNoting the length of the consultation document, he added: “Funding of DB pensions is extremely complicated and therefore some of the trade-offs you have to think about are incredibly complex.“We’ve tried to set out the thinking and challenges in arriving at what a suitable compromise would be.”Twin tracks, key principlesAs previously indicated, TPR is proposing a twin-track compliance approach to valuations.If trustees can demonstrate their valuation meets certain quantitative compliance guidelines they will be able to choose a “fast-track” approach and expect minimum regulatory involvement on DB funding.Alternatively, there is a “bespoke” valuation approach, relevant for trustees who either choose not to or cannot comply with fast-track guidelines.This track offers greater flexibility, but requires trustees to submit more supporting evidence on their approach, including how they propose to manage any additional risk. This may also involve greater regulatory scrutiny.TPR has been at pains to stress that bespoke and fast track approaches, if done correctly, are equally compliant with the legislation and that bespoke arrangements should not be seen as bad or a second-best option.One example given for why a scheme might opt for the bespoke track was if the employer was very constrained and the scheme, therefore, needed a longer recovery plan.Key principlesAccording to TPR, most schemes are closed to new members and/or future accruals and can be expected to be “significantly mature” in 15 to 20 years’ time, with the majority of their members retired.Fairs said: “These schemes will be more vulnerable to risks associated with poor funding levels and shorter investment horizons.”A key principle being set out by TPR is that trustees should identify a scheme-specific long-term objective (LTO) so that by the time the scheme is significantly mature it is fully funded with a low dependency on the employer and invested with high resilience to risk.For a fast-track approach, the regulatory is proposing that the low dependency funding basis be with a discount rate somewhere in the range of Gilts plus 50bp to Gilts plus 25bp.TPR has also proposed key principles in relation to investments, such as that the asset allocation at significant maturity should have high resilience to risk, a high level of liquidity, and a high average credit quality.In terms of recovery plans, TPR’s proposed principle is that these should remain based on affordability, but, as for other parameters for the fast track approach, it is consulting on options for standardised guidelines for recovery plan lengths.Mouna Turnbull, policy lead at TPR, told journalists it was “too early to talk about a significant shortening of recovery plans”.TPR is also consulting on the extent to which the employer covenant should remain a key aspect of scheme funding, including how it should be assessed and for how long reliance can be placed on it, and on alternative support and the reliance that can be placed on it.What impact?In the consultation document TPR said it did not expect its proposals to be “too onerous for most schemes” but that there could be significant impacts for some schemes, in particular those that have been running excessive and unjustifiable levels of risk.With regard to open schemes, it said its view was that the accrual of new benefits should not compromise the security of accrued benefits, but that this did not mean it was advocating the closure of open schemes.The consultation closes on 2 June. The UK’s pensions regulator has today launched the first part of a keenly awaited major consultation on its revised code of practice for defined benefit (DB) funding, which aims to set out more clearly what is expected from trustees and employers.Spanning nearly 180 pages and posing 58 questions, the consultation document sets out The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR’s) thinking about the overarching principles that should underpin all scheme valuations and proposals for how these principles could be applied in practice.A second consultation, planned for later this year, will focus on the draft funding code itself and what the final guidelines might look like. This will take into account industry feedback to the first consultation, the regulator’s impact assessment, and any changes to legislation and regulations.It is expected that the revised code will come into force at the end of 2021. Overall, the TPR is consulting on a new funding regime to address concerns highlighted in a 2018 government white paper on DB pension schemes and to implement new measures introduced in the Pensions Schemes Bill, which was laid in parliament in January and introduces new requirements for sponsors and trustees to agree long term funding and investment strategies.David Fairs, executive director of regulatory policy at TPR, said: “The launch of the our consultation on a clearer framework for DB funding is a significant moment for DB schemes.”Speaking to journalists yesterday, he said that at the heart of the consultation lay “a really simple concept: what is the balance between security of members’ benefits and affordability?”.last_img read more

EPL: Wolves force Arsenal to draw

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Arsenal, Wolves want Michael Olise Akpom pens Middlesbrough loan deal Arsenal were pegged back for the third time in six days as under-pressure Unai Emery saw his side draw 1-1 with Wolves.A week on from drawing 2-2 against Crystal Palace having gone 2-0 up, as well as losing in the Carabao Cup on penalties to Liverpool having been 4-2 up, Emery’s men were denied again.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, captain in Granit Xhaka’s absence, gave Arsenal the lead on 21 minutes but Raul Jimenez equalised 15 minutes from time.Emery’s team selection was a talking point ahead of kickoff, with Xhaka omitted following his clash with Arsenal fans and Mesut Ozil returning for only his second Premier League appearance of the season.Ozil and Arsenal started nervously, though, as Wolves begun brightly as they camped inside the hosts’ half.But it was Emery’s men who took the lead against the run of play midway through the first half when Alexandre Lacazette found Aubameyang, who coolly slotted home from 12 years to put his side in front.Wolves thought they had equalised just before half time but Matt Doherty’s effort was superbly kept out by Bernd Leno in the Arsenal goal.Leno was alert to deny Ruben Neves in the second half as Wolves pushed for the all-important equaliser but he could do nothing to deny Jimenez on 75 minutes.Joao Moutinho hooked over a cross and Jimenez rose highest and nodded in to crank up the pressure on Emery.

French double for ‘A’ squad trio

first_img Luke Johnson (King’s Lynn, Norfolk), winner of two titles already this season, has been selected along with fellow England ‘A’ squad members Daniel Brown (Bedale, Yorkshire) and Adam Chapman (Windermere, Cumbria) to represent England Golf in the Chiberta Grand Prix on 3rd – 6th July and in the Biarritz Cup, on 10th – 13th July. Johnson, 22, currently lies fourth on the Titleist/FootJoy England Golf men’s Order of Merit following his victories in the Berkhamsted Trophy and the West of England Stroke Play Championship. It will be the first time the Norfolk county player has represented England Golf overseas. Brown, 19, is a boy international, a former Yorkshire champion and winner of all six of his games when Yorkshire won the Boys County Championship in 2012. This year, he finished equal fifth in the Duncan Putter, third in the Hampshire Hog and reached the quarter finals of last week’s Amateur Championship in Ireland. It will also be his maiden foreign assignment with England Golf. Chapman (pictured, image copyright Leaderboard Photography), 19, also a boy cap, reached the last 16 of the Amateur Championship. He is enjoying a successful season, having finished third in the Duncan Putter, sixth in the Welsh Open Stroke Play and equal seventh in the Hampshire Hog. Last year, when he made his England debut, he finished runner-up in the Sir Henry Cooper Junior Masters and in the Junior County Champions Tournament. The Chiberta Grand Prix is medal stroke play over 72 holes with a halfway cut. There is also a team event over the first two days, the best two of the three cards to count. The Biarritz Cup is a similar competition but the team event is for pairs with both scores to count. 26 Jun 2014 French double for ‘A’ squad trio last_img read more

Bus rapid transit to ‘free’ Soweto

first_img12 September 2013A new Rea Vaya bus rapid transit route connecting Soweto to Johannesburg’s central business district (CBD) is set to become operational on 14 October, opening up a crucial new “corridor of freedom” in South Africa’s busiest city.The new route will run from Soweto and pass through Noordegesig, New Canada, Pennyville, Bosmont, Coronationville, Newclare, Westbury, Westdene, Melville, Auckland Park and Parktown before connecting to the CBD.Johannesburg is working to reverse apartheid spatial planning, and in so doing to reduce the structural unemployment and poverty that was created by denying people access to work opportunities, universities, hospitals and other amenities close to where they live.For many Johannesburg residents, being able to live in close proximity to public transport facilities with easy access to the city amounts to a life-changing experience.The fast, safe and cost-effective Rea Vaya bus rapid transit service has already been exceeding its daily target of transporting 80 000 passengers daily. The new route has the potential to carry a further 40 000 or more passengers daily.The new service will use 134 new Rea Vaya buses, which have also been manufactured locally.As Rea Vaya continues to be expand its reach, integration with other modes of transport will become more central.The phase 1C plan includes the construction of three large-scale multi-modal interchanges at Sandton, Westgate and Pan Africa in Alexandra to enable passengers to transfer between the Gautrain, Metrorail, Metrobus and mini-bus taxis.The construction of dedicated bus routes will also see a significant upgrading of roads and pathways for cyclists and pedestrians, especially in Alexandra, Wynberg, Marlboro and the Sandton CBD.Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more

Pressure Reducing Valves Save Water and Prevent Problems

first_imgWhat is a Pressure Reducing Valve (PRV)?PRVs have spring-loaded diaphragms that resist the incoming pressure of the water supply to a home. They are typically installed just after the water meter on the system side (see photo). PRVs usually come set at 45 pounds per square inch (PSI) but have a set-screw adjustment so that the PRV’s range of operation is from approximately 30 to 80 psi. PRVs cost around $80; installation costs may double the total cost, depending on installation circumstances (new or existing home, location of incoming line, ease of shutting off water service to the home, etc.).Why are PRVs included in the WaterSense new homes specification?The 2009 WaterSense Single-Family New Home Specification requirement is for static water pressure no greater than 60 psi. For homes with wells, a pressure tank must be installed as part of the domestic water system. For homes on municipal water distribution systems, you need either a PRV or a determination the home complies with the static pressure maximum (see the Inspection and Verification Guidance for WaterSense¯ Labeled New Homes).PRVs save water by reducing flow rates. The greater the water pressure, the greater the rate of flow for many plumbing fixtures. Reducing the system pressure by as little as 10 to 20 psi can save thousands of gallons a year in a typical home. Reflecting this benefit, it is not uncommon for PRV installations to be supported by water utilities. The City of Austin’s water utility gives a $100 rebate for PRV installations in homes with greater than 80 psi water pressure.But PRVs in homes with high water pressure are green and smart for other reasons. Many residential plumbing fixtures are engineered for pressures no greater than 75–80 psi; some manufacturers void their warranties if pressures are above this range. Fixtures such as storage-type water heaters, dishwashers, refrigerator icemakers, and pressure-assisted toilets can be particularly prone to reduced service life or leaks at pressures above 75–80 psi.Is high water pressure really that common?Municipal water systems vary tremendously in water-delivery pressure, depending on distance from water plant, elevation, and other factors. Pressures in excess of 100 psi are not unusual. In my own home, we measured water pressures ranging up to 110 psi routinely over a week-long period.It’s easy to test your water pressure—you can screw a pressure gauge right on to a hose bib (see photo). If pressures exceed 200 psi, two PRVs can be installed in series to manage the load. But leave the installation of the PRV to a plumbing professional, hopefully a green one.last_img read more
