very cheap and long-known drugs help save the lungs with coronavirus

Cloving hospital on the basis of the Medical Scientific and Educational Center (ISSC) Moscow State University named after M.V.Lomonosov took the first patients on April 21 and completed his work on June 13. It turned out that it was possible to achieve the best treatment results for COVID-19 in Moscow. Over the entire period, 4 patients died, and among severe patients who got mechanical ventilation, the mortality rate was less than 14% (for comparison, the average for the city and the world was up to 70 – 80%). Eighteen doctors out of 220 employees of the hospital were infected with coronavirus, there were no deaths among the medical staff.

What approaches were used at the University Hospital of Moscow State University to achieve such results? We continue the conversation with the head. Department of Therapy, Faculty of Fundamental Medicine, Moscow State University, Head of the Department of Age-Associated Diseases, Medical Scientific and Educational Center, Doctor of Medical Sciences, Cardiologist Yana Orlova.

MEDICINE FOR COUGH FOR 80 RUBLES

– Most of those who are ill or are afraid to get sick are worried about fibrotic changes in their lungs. They say that you have developed special therapy that can reduce the risk of developing fibrosis. Is it possible?!

– Yes, we launched an appropriate clinical study. There are no final results yet, but we have developed clinical practice.

“What did you do to save the lungs?”

– We used a combination of bromhexine and spironolactone (both are long-known very cheap drugs. – Ed.). Bromhexine is an expectorant that has been prescribed to patients with pneumonia and cough for many years. At the same time, experimental data showed that this drug can block a specific enzyme and impede the penetration of coronavirus into cells. True, it was on this effect that we counted to a lesser extent in inpatients, since such an effect is important mainly in the early stages of the disease. But the expectorant effect of bromhexine really helps patients with COVID. I heard that our colleagues in Peter launched a study of bromhexine for prophylactic purposes. We will wait for the results.

FIBROSIS OBSTACLE

– The second drug – spironolactone – is traditionally widely used in cardiology for the treatment of heart failure, severe hypertension. It has a small diuretic, magnesium and potassium-preserving effect, continues Yana. Orlova. – It has several mechanisms through which it can be useful in coronavirus infection.

Firstly, a mechanism that prevents the development of fibrosis in general in the body. There are works that, in particular, show that spironolactone reduces fibrosis in the heart. At the same time, it is known that the tendency to fibrosis is not local, but systemic – where there is more inflammation, there will certainly be fibrosis. And we see, of course, fibrotic changes in the “covide” in our patients. Therefore, we prescribed spironolactone as a drug for the prevention of this process.

Secondly, this drug blocks sex hormone receptors, in particular testosterone. Some published studies suggest that “high-testosterone” men suffer from “covid” more often and develop more severe fibrotic changes. Therefore, blocking these receptors for several weeks during COVID treatment may be useful in reducing the severity of complications. We are not talking about a longer intake, since male patients are unlikely to agree with a decrease in testosterone levels in the long term.

And perhaps the most important point. In almost all of our patients, we observed hypokalemia (a decrease in potassium levels. – Ed.). With coronavirus infection, potassium is intensely excreted from the body, and scientific articles even suggest that hypokalemia serves as the trigger for a cytokine storm. So spironolactone has a real chance to reduce the risk of this dangerous complication. But the main thing, in my opinion, is that lowering the level of potassium in the body is extremely harmful to the heart and triggers life-threatening rhythm disturbances, increasing the risk of sudden death. We, like all others, replenished potassium with droppers, but it was more effective to retain it in the body with the help of spironolactone.

WHEN PRESCRIBED PATIENTS

– Yana Arturovna, how many patients did you have on average?

– About 10 – 14 days. But someone and 50 days.

– Have you noticed signs by which it can be assumed that the disease in the person brought is likely to go the hard way?

– Such studies were carried out in the world, our clinical practice confirmed them. Men certainly get worse than women; the elderly are heavier than the young; overweight people are heavier than overweight patients. Men with a classic male type of baldness, a lot of facial hair, we can say brutal men get sick harder.

– Under what conditions did you discharge patients?

– We acted as close as possible to the recommendations Ministry of Health: so that the temperature for three days was not higher than 37.5 degrees; so that C-reactive protein (an indicator of inflammation) is lower than 10 mg / l, and saturation, that is, the level of oxygen in the blood, is higher than 96%.

“HEAD OF EPIDEMIOLOGY DEPARTMENT OF ITSELF WORKED AT SANPROPUSNIK”

– How often do you get sick doctors and nurses?

– In the first month no one got sick at all. We have a very powerful epidemiological service. The head of the sanitary-epidemiological department, a senior researcher, correctly organized the whole process, and for the first two weeks she personally worked in the sanitary inspection room at the exit from the “red zone” and helped doctors and nurses who were exhausted after the shift safely remove protective clothing.

Then both people’s fatigue and viral load accumulated. By the middle of the second month, sick people began to appear. There were no seriously ill patients. We treated part of the staff in our observation, part of it was treated at home. In total, 18 people were infected from the medical staff (less than 10%).

– Doctors take something for prevention? Vitamins C, D, Zinc?

– I saw the recommendations of American nutritionists, they speak out positively about taking zinc, melatonin and vitamin C. There were somewhat conflicting data on vitamin D. But we did not give any such recommendations to our employees. We have all the prevention was associated with minimizing contacts and other measures of epidemiological safety.

Physicians are the heroes of our time.“If you think that you are special and that a pandemic will not affect you, you are deeply mistaken,” listen to what the doctors who are fighting with coronavirus say

Russia will export personal protective equipment, in particular medical masks, only to the countries of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU). This was reported in the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade, RIA Novosti reports. On the eve of May 3, Russia lifted the ban on the export of protective masks.

The government banned the export of a number of medical devices from the country in early March. Later, Russia and its partners in the EAEU (Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) introduced a similar measure already within the union, the Ministry of Industry and Trade said.

“In this regard, and also in order to remove barriers in the mutual supply of personal protective equipment in the union (in the spirit of the agreements of the leaders of the EAEU countries), the Russian government decided to cancel the national ban while maintaining the all-Union,” the press service of the department said.

Amid the spread of coronavirus, Russia in early March banned the export of certain medical devices, including protective masks and suits, gloves, bandages and gauze, until June 1. The restriction did not apply to humanitarian aid to other countries, as well as the export of personal protective equipment by residents. With this measure, the government hoped to prevent an “artificial shortage” of a number of medical devices “which speculators can export abroad,” then said Minister of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov.

Doctors compared mortality of COVID and other infections

On the page of the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov interesting information about the situation with infectious diseases in the world was published on the social network. And in particular that rotavirus infection causes hundreds of thousands of deaths per year in the world. Is the familiar and familiar rotavirus more dangerous than the coronavirus? “KP»Understands together with the immunologist, expert in public health and international health care, candidate of medical sciences Nikolay Kryuchkov.

– Of course, in addition to COVID-19, there are many other dangerous diseases in the world and these are not necessarily infectious diseases. Let me remind you that mortality from cardiovascular diseases is in the first place, also high mortality is associated with oncological diseases, in particular, lung cancer, and, of course, infectious diseases are also often the cause of death. However, the threat of rotavirus infection today is greatly exaggerated, said Nikolai Kryuchkov.

How many people die from rotavirus?

According to pessimistic estimates provided by the World Health Organization, around the world in 2013, 215 thousand children under the age of five died from rotavirus infection. According to other data obtained in international studies, this is 122 thousand deaths in 2013.

– The situation since 2013 in terms of mortality from rotavirus infection has not changed much. I think here we can talk about 200 thousand deaths per year among children under five years of age. Half of the world’s deaths occur in five countries: India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Angola and Congo– emphasizes the immunologist Nikolai Kryuchkov. – In the media you can often find information that up to a third of deaths of children under five are caused by rotavirus. This is not true! The fact is that among all deaths of children under five years of age in the world, mortality from diarrhea accounts for about 8%, but among these 8% of deaths from diarrhea – from 25% to 30% are attributable to rotavirus. That is, it turns out about 200 thousand deaths of children under five years of age per year in the world, while more than 6 million children under five die in the world per year.

Is rotavirus disease relevant for Russia?

If you consider Europeyy region to which Russia, then the figures for mortality from diarrhea are lower than in developing countries. Mortality from diarrhea among children under five in Europe is 4% – 5% of all childhood deaths. About a quarter of them are rotavirus.

In Russia, according to WHO estimates, in 2013, 52 children under the age of five died from rotavirus infection, which is 0.3% of all other deaths of children under five years of age. Rotavirus infection is not the most common cause of death among children, and even more so among adults (the latter rarely die from rotavirus, so all statistics are data on the death of children – approx. Ed.).

– Rotavirus is a problem primarily in poor countries with a warm climate. For Russia, this is also a problem, but to a much lesser extent, ”said Nikolai Kryuchkov, a doctor. – It is important to emphasize that effective and safe rotavirus vaccines exist.

The incidence of rotavirus infection after the introduction of vaccination has decreased many times. In Russia, universal vaccination against rotavirus is not carried out, but, despite this, mortality is low, given that it is clear how to help such patients. The main thing here is replenishment of lost fluid and symptomatic therapy. Given these two factors — the availability of a vaccine and the development of affordable treatment — mortality from rotavirus is very low even among children from zero to five years old, not to mention adults. Among adults, these are isolated cases.

Who is worse: rotavirus or coronavirus?

According to epidemiologists, mortality (taking into account the number of deaths from the number of episodes of the disease) of rotavirus infection in the world is from 0.05% to 0.09%. This is comparable to mortality from seasonal flu. Yes, in the poorest countries it can reach up to 2%. However, in this case, only moderate to severe episodes are taken into account, and not all cases of rotavirus infection.

“With coronavirus infection, according to my most optimistic forecasts, the mortality rate in the world will be 2%,” says Nikolay Kryuchkov. – Let me remind you that now the mortality rate from COVID-19 in Russia is about 4%. AT Germany – 3.5%, and this is one of the best examples in Europe. Of course, a lot depends on how the data are kept and analyzed, but even though there are probably unaccounted cases, the mortality from coronavirus infection is much higher than the mortality from rotavirus. And the epidemic of coronavirus infection is still far from over.

“It is also important to understand that we are having a coronavirus pandemic, and the situation with rotavirus is under control.” The number of deaths from coronavirus is now growing, due to the fact that there is an increase in cases of infection. The daily increase in new cases of coronavirus infection in the world is more than 5%, and in Russia today it is more than 8%. Therefore, it is obvious that the situation with rotavirus is stable, and the coronavirus pandemic for us is not known how it will end. The coronavirus infection pandemic continues to grow, it is important to understand this, ”Nikolay Kryuchkov emphasized in a conversation with“ KP ”. – When we talk about the number of deaths from rotavirus, 200 thousand people a year around the world among children under five years of age are deaths that happened in a year! As we know, the coronavirus epidemic lasts about four months. This is significantly less than a year.

How many deaths from coronavirus infection will be in a year (given that, according to the data of May 3, 243,922 people died in the world – approx. Ed.)? Yes, there are other dangerous infections in the world, but many of them can be protected. This is Hepatitis B, and pneumococcal infection, tetanus, and so on. And Dr. Myasnikov rightly points out the need for widespread vaccination against the most dangerous and common infections. Unfortunately, there are no vaccines from COVID-19 yet, they will be ready by the spring of next year at best.

Also, an important difference between the course of rotavirus infection and coronavirus infection: hospitalization with rotavirus disease in developed countries is very rare. All necessary treatment conditions can be provided at home. With coronavirus, the patient often needs active therapy, which can only be provided in a specialized medical institution.

SPECIFICALLY

Dr. Myasnikov gives such statistics on mortality from infections (in the world for a year)

Measles (there is a vaccine) – 140 thousand deaths per year

Pneumococcus (there is a vaccine) – 2 -2.5 million deaths per year

Hepatitis B (there is a vaccine) – 650 thousand deaths per year

Tetanus (there is a vaccine) – 89 thousand deaths per year

Cervical cancer (there is a vaccine) – 250 thousand deaths per year

Tuberculosis (there is a vaccine) – 1.5 million deaths per year

Influenza (there is a vaccine) – 650 thousand-1 million deaths per year

Coronavirus (no vaccine) – 244 thousand deaths from the beginning of the spread

Are you facing a prison term? Bodies became interested in Romashov after violence against women at “HOUSE-2”

Against the backdrop of the scandal about domestic violence, the TV show’s good-earned riveted special attention.

The scandal with Regina Todorenko, who spoke rather stupidly about domestic violence, had not yet managed to abate on the network, when suddenly “DOM-2” intercepted the baton of the hat. In one of the last episodes of the TV set, Evgeny Romashov grossly humiliated a participant in love. The guy beat her on the cheeks, broke his lip and threatened with reprisal: “Don’t be afraid, I can beat so that there are no bruises,” Evgeni angrily declared. It is worth noting that this is not the first assault on the fair sex.

The last darling of Romashov – Julia Belaya constantly suffered from bruises and abrasions. Once, a girl admitted that she was afraid for her life and she was scared to be in the same room with Eugene. Now, domestic violence against women has attracted attention from all sides of society. It is possible that the executive authorities are deeply interested in the situation at DOM-2, in particular Romashov. If the assault continues, then the guy will face serious problems.

The Penal Code contains article No. 115 “Intentional causing minor harm to health”, for which a fine or a real prison term could be imposed. Psychologists say that domestic violence never occurs without a reason. Since childhood, every person has various moral principles and values. Apparently, Evgeny Romashov has a kind of psychological trauma, after which the guy can not behave with the fair sex.

The network showed station wagons from Chevrolet – not competitors Volkswagen Caddy?

The only plus is the price.

After the Chevrolet station wagons were shown on the net, motorists were perplexed. Many of them said that this is a cheap parody of LADA Largus, and not competitors of Volkswagen Caddy, as the representative of the company says.

The production of new products started in March 2020 and is aimed at the automotive market of Kazakhstan. Moreover, Chevrolet intends to compete not only with the German light commercial vehicle for 1,631,300-2776,100 rubles, but also with the LADA Largus localized in the republic, whose value does not even reach a million – 622900-933900 rubles.

However, the brand’s developers took into account the nuances by making the 8-seater Damas passenger minibus and Labo mini truck as cheap as possible due to Uzbek car kits. Therefore, it is not surprising that new items will cost customers 582 and 600 thousand rubles.

Given the length of LADA Largus, which is 4470 millimeters, the news from Chevrolet do not differ in particular capacity, namely it is valued in micro-vans and mini-trucks. The total length of the new products does not exceed 3.5 meters, and the heart of the rear-wheel drive cars is a 0.8 liter gasoline engine, which is paired with a manual gearbox.

It’s hard for motorists to imagine how much power is under the hood, so they are still confident that Chevrolet Damas and Labo are not a competitor to LADA Largus, and even less so Volkswagen Caddy.

The Supreme fails again in favor of Trump in immigration and internal criticism emerges | U.S

The Supreme Court has removed the last obstacle that stood in Trump Administration plans to deny residence permit (green card) to those immigrants who are considered to be, at some point, an economic “burden” for the State, by requiring public medical assistance or assistance for housing or food. With the ruling, the rule that will make it more difficult to obtain residence for applicants with fewer resources comes into force throughout the country. Same as in another similar case last month, Conservative magistrates have imposed themselves by five votes to four.

On Friday night, hours after hearing the ruling, the progressive judge Sonia Sotomayor published a hard vote, in which she denounces that the Trump Administration resorts too often to the Supreme, alleging emergency situations, to unlock controversial policies. And accuses his fellow conservative judges of the highest judicial instance of aligning too easily with a government that shows impatience.

“It is difficult to say what is more worrisome: that the Government resorts to this extraordinary resource as usual or that the court grants it,” writes Sotomayor. “The behavior of the court,” the judge denounces, has benefited “a litigator over all others.”

Sotomayor’s criticisms become especially relevant in a course in which the Supreme Court, with a more conservative majority since the appointment of Judge Brett Kavanaugh in the summer of 2018, has matters of enormous social and political importance on the table. Since immigration, with the case of the rights of dreamers (immigrants who arrived illegally in the country as minors), until abortion, through gay rights, weapons, and even Donald Trump’s own efforts to hide his personal finances.

The Supreme resolution is a victory for the Trump Administration. The White House on Saturday expressed its “gratitude” for the sentence. “This firm ruling will protect hard-working American taxpayers, safeguard social security programs for Americans who really need them, reduce the federal deficit and restore the fundamental legal principle that newcomers to our society must be financially self-sufficient. and not depend on the need of the taxpayers of the United States, ”says the statement released by the press secretariat.

The regulations were published last summer, and a number of activists, as well as several states, immediately opposed an initiative that transforms legal immigration, and went to court. Friday’s ruling corrects a judge’s decision of a lower instance to block the new rules on residence permits in the State of Illinois. Last month, the Supreme Court had also decided to lift the blockade, ordered by a New York judge, of the regulations for the rest of the country. Litigation continues with other cases, but immigration and citizenship services have ensured that they have already implemented it since Monday.
