Cutting viral dose in half or using BM cells from heterozygote mice in a combination of BMT and gene therapy treatments result in a similar reduction in lifespan of the treated mice.
A combination of old age, comorbidities, increased cytokine levels and proarrhythmic drug therapies canexplain the increased arrhythmic events reported in severe COVID-19 disease.

Nanostructured-Lipid-Carriers (NLCs) for brain delivery of rapamycin were designed by modification of optimized cationic-NLCs (C-NLC) with different approaches. The targeted transferrin decorated NLCs(Tf-NLCs) in comparison to untargeted bare-NLCs (B-NLCs) showed higher cellular uptake and appropriate targeted accumulation in the brain.
