Researchers Are Testing Paxlovid as a Treatment for Long COVID
Long COVID currently affects millions of people in the U.S. Symptoms can include brain fog, tremors, sleep disorders, and shortness of breath. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other academic medical centers recently launched clinical trials aimed at finding treatments for long COVID. Researchers think that there may be different causes of long COVID symptoms in different people, which is why they are conducting different clinical trials in many centers around the country.Source: Verywell Health
New Tools Enable Non-Clinicians to Diagnose Substance Use Disorders
A new study by Yale School of Medicine (YSM) and NYU Grossman School of Medicine researchers demonstrates the validity of two new diagnostic tools—the Rapid Opioid Use Disorder Assessment and the Rapid Stimulant Use Disorder Assessment. These instruments may be used to increase diagnoses of opioid and stimulant use disorder and access to treatment.
Yale researchers are working on a whole new type of vaccine, targeting the insects that carry pathogens
A group of Yale researchers is working on a new kind of vaccine they believe could change the world: instead of acting against a pathogen, the vaccine would reduce the risk of transmission for mosquito-and-tick-borne illnesses by targeting the insects themselves.Source: Stamford Advocate
