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.

  • Oral Pyruvate Effects on Dorsal Root Ganglia in Simulated Weightlessness Rats

    Long-term microgravity in spaceflight has been demonstrated with induction of multi-organ damage and dysfunction, including the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) injury. Present studies investigated protective effects of oral pyruvate in drinking water on lumbar 5 (L5) DRG tissues in rats subjected with hindlimb unweighting (HU).

  • Simultaneous Encephalitis and Neuroretinitis After COVID-19 in a Young Adult: A Case Report

    Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic greatly impacted many aspects of life in the world. Both neurological and ophthalmologic presentations after COVID-19 have been reported.

  • COVID-19 Vaccine Priority for People With Neurologic and Rare Diseases

    As vaccination programmes against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) are expanded, substantial variation in the prioritisation of different groups is apparent both between countries but also interprovincially within Canada. In this editorial, we bring attention to the need to prioritize individuals with neurologic and rare disorders for vaccination.

  • Ceramide Dynamics and Prognostic Value in Acute and Subacute Ischemic Stroke: Preliminary Findings in a Clinical Cohort

    Ceramides are implicated in sphingolipid signaling. Elevated ceramide levels have been associated with increased cardiovascular risk, but information on their role in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) is limited.

  • A Pilot Clinical Trial of Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Mild Cognitive Impairment

    Mild cognitive impairment (MCI) is defined as a progressive memory dysfunction. There are controversies with regards to whether repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) could improve the condition. In a randomized, self-control, crossover clinical trial, effect of rTMS on cognitive performance in patients with MCI was assessed.







Cerebral Coagulation Complications Following COVID-19 Adenoviral Vector Vaccines: A Systematic Review
While administration of millions of doses of the adenoviral vector vaccines (e.g., Oxford-AstraZeneca (ChAdOx1 nCoV-19) and Janssen/Johnson & Johnson (Ad26.COV2. S)) has helped control the disease, numerous cases of cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST) with thrombocytopenia have been reported in vaccinated individuals.

Reported Incidences of Postoperative Delirium in State and National Hospital Claims Databases
The aim of the study was to evaluate the incidence of postoperative delirium (POD) following a comprehensive list of surgical procedures utilizing data from state and national inpatient hospital databases. The incidence of POD occurring during surgical hospital admissions was evaluated across 15 surgical categories, and different patient demographics using California State Inpatient Database (SID) and National Inpatient Sample (NIS).

Diagnostic Dilemma of Aspergillus Meningitis in Patients With Hepatitis C Virus Co-Infection: A Case Series
Aspergillus meningitis can occur in immunocompromised and immunocompetent patients. The diagnostic yield is only 39% in immunocompromised patients and 69% in immunocompetent patients. Diagnosis can be challenging, as repeated cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) cultures can be negative. Even with multiple cultures, the diagnostic yield is meager, sometimes requiring a tissue diagnosis.
