COVID-19 and Long COVID

COVID-19 and Post COVID-19 Condition (Long COVID)
The COVID-19 outbreak presents the unprecedented challenge for world public and medical practitioners and health care providers, the post COVID-19 condition (or long COVID) includes long term symptoms which may persist for months or years after SARS-CoV-2 infection. We will consider submissions related to all aspects of COVID-19 and Long COVID, and process the manuscripts in priority.
Collection of COVID-19 articles.


  • Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone and Estimated Glomerular Filtration Rate

    The retrospective study investigated thyroid function and CKD, and assessed the relationship between thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and urine albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR), and the slope of estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), stratified by CKD grades.

  • Sedentary Lifestyle Attenuates Positive Metabolic Effect of Regular Physical Exercise

    The aim of the study was to evaluate the influence of the duration of sedentary time on blood lipids and anthropometric parameters in people practicing resistance training in leisure time. Our study included 213 subjects without any history of cardiovascular disease. The target group (169 subjects) had at least two 90-min sessions of resistance training per week for at least 12 months prior to study commencing.

  • Extreme Elevation of Alkaline Phosphatase in a Pregnancy Complicated by Uncontrolled Chronic Hypertension and Its Association With Placental Pathology

    Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) is an enzyme produced primarily by cells of liver, bone, kidney, small intestine and placenta, each detectable by a specific isoenzyme. It appears in maternal serum in the second trimester and increases progressively with gestational age.

  • Epicardial Adipose Tissue Thickness as a Reliable Marker of Increased Cardiovascular Risk in Patients With Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

    Epicardial adipose tissue (EAT) is a distinct visceral adipose tissue that is present in between the visceral pericardium and myocardium, in which the coronary arteries are lodged. This tissue releases several inflammatory and atherogenic mediators which lead to the initiation and/or progression of coronary atherosclerosis ...

  • Association of Diabetes and Severe COVID-19 Outcomes: A Rapid Review and Meta-Analysis

    Addressing the urgent need for evidence on diabetes as a serious comorbidity for severe illness and death from coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), we investigated the association between diabetes and COVID-19 disease severity in patients hospitalized due to COVID-19.







Understanding the Role of Dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 Inhibitors in COVID-19: Findings From a Systematic Review
Inhibitors of dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP4) have been used for diabetic patients and there is debate around using the same DPP4 inhibitors as a potential source of treatment for severe coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Full Text

Growth Hormone Deficiency in Childhood Intracranial Germ Cell Tumor Survivors
Intracranial germ cell tumor (iGCT) survivors have multiple risk factors for growth hormone (GH) deficiency, a commonly reported late effect in childhood cancer survivors. The objective of this study was to examine the prevalence of GH deficiency among childhood iGCT survivors. Full Text
