LAUSD has safety measures in place, but much work remains before return to campus

Long before public health officials announced this week that elementary schools in Los Angeles County can finally reopen because the county’s daily rate of new COVID-19 cases has fallen low enough to meet reopening standards, officials in the Los Angeles Unified School District had submitted its plan for bringing students back to campus to the state and county. And it’s already prepared its schools for the eventual return of students and staff by purchasing personal protective equipment, install...

Humidity created inside facemasks may help combat COVID-19, study finds

A new study, published in the journal Biophysical Journal by researchers at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), showed that face masks increase the humidity in the air that the mask-wearers inhale. The level of moisture in inhaled air could be linked to lower levels of COVID-19 severity.

Mice study suggests novel approach to treat a type of common glioma

Gliomas are common brain tumors that comprise about one third of all cancers of the nervous system. In a study funded by the National Institutes of Health, researchers tested a novel combination treatment approach on mice with tumors with characteristics similar to human astrocytomas--a type of slow-growing glioma--and found tumor regression in 60 percent of the mice treated.

New model to better predict risk of abdominal aortic aneurysms

An abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) can be a ticking time bomb if undiscovered in time. However, researchers at the University of Pittsburgh are developing a new model to better predict at-risk patients. And the tools they are using apply mechanical testing to the human body - which is itself a complex machine.

For a family devastated by COVID-19, Mariachi serenade provides a moment of hope

Patty Trejo wanted some way to let her husband, Joe Trejo, know that she’s with him even as he breathes through a ventilator. So she turned to music. Trejo hired a mariachi band to serenade him outside Providence St. Jude Medical Center in Fullerton.  And on Monday, Feb. 15, inside his room in the hospital’s intensive care unit, their song “La Mano de Dios” (The Hand of God) was streamed live via a cell phone. Joe Trejo, in a medically induced coma as he struggles with COVID-19, heard the song, ...
