SARS virus spreads to many organs

first_img The findings partially parallel an earlier study in which Chinese researchers found the SARS-CoV in the intestinal tract, sweat glands, and kidneys of SARS victims, in addition to the lungs. That study, however, found no virus in the lymph nodes or muscles. See also: Their study was published electronically in advance of the Jan 15, 2005, issue of the Journal of Infectious Diseases. The authors note that watery diarrhea has often been reported as a SARS symptom. That observation and their own findings indicate that gastrointestinal involvement is common in SARS, which has “implications for infection-control measures and the potential for fecal-oral transmission in community outbreaks,” the report says. The study focused on victims of the SARS outbreak in the Toronto area from March to September of 2003. Autopsies were performed on 21 of 44 patients whose deaths were attributed to SARS. Fifty-one patients who died of other causes during the outbreak and underwent autopsies were used as controls. The researchers found SARS-CoV in 19 of 19 patients who died within 51 days after the onset of infection. All 206 postmortem samples from the 51 non-SARS patients were negative for the virus. Besides the lungs, the SARS virus was found in the small and large bowel, lymph nodes, spleen, liver, heart, kidney, and skeletal muscle of at least some patients. The virus was found in the small and large bowel in 73% (11 of 15) of patients, in the heart in 40% (7 of 18), and in skeletal muscle in 12% (2 of 17).center_img May 10, 2004, CIDRAP News story, “Study suggests food, sweat, waste could spread SARS virus” Reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) tests were used to detect SARS-CoV in organ samples. Dec 23, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – Although primarily associated with lung infection, the coronavirus that causes SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) spreads throughout the human body, Canadian researchers have found. “We observed extrapulmonary dissemination of the virus into all major organs, especially the bowel and lymph nodes. These data have implications for the clinical manifestation, disease course and outcome, and transmission of SARS-CoV [SARS coronavirus],” says the report by Gabriella A.

India-Pakistan contests bigger than Ashes, says Inzamam-ul-Haq

first_imgIndia-Pakistan cricket is more exciting and far bigger than the Ashes because of the sheer number of people who come in to cheer, says former Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq.Inzamam and former India skipper Sourav Ganguly were speaking at the Salaam Cricket Conclave held at Hotel Maurya in New Delhi. Both legends walked down memory lane to take their fans through some endearing moments of their rivalry. (Also read: India have a 99 per cent chance of winning World T20, says Virender Sehwag at Salaam Cricket) While Ganguly revealed he asked Inzamam for bats during his playing days, Inzy recalled how Ganguly would send food to the Pakistani team in Kolkata. The two men, divided by boundaries and cricketing rivarly, were united by a conclave that is bound to touch millions of hearts in two nations.”India-Pakistan contests are better than Ashes. The crowd following was immense and there were great players who competed for their countries,” said Inzaman, who also praised Virender Sehwag lavishly.Sehwag, who blasted a triple hundred against Pakistan in Inzamam’s hometown Multan and smashed another double hundred against them in Test cricket, was a nemesis for Pakistani bowlers for years. Inzaman said it was impossible to set a field agaisnt Sehwag. (India on track for World T20, says Dhoni after Asia Cup win)”Imagine Sehwag batting on the first day of a Test match and I had four or five fielders near the ropes. It was difficult to stop him and it was difficult to captain against him,” said Inzamam at Aaj Tak’s Salaam Cricket Conclave. “Sehwag made me doubt my captaincy, because he would not only score at breathtaking speed, he would also score big.”advertisementGanguly, who led India on a historic tour of Pakistan in 2004, said it was one of the best tours of his cricket career. India and Pakistan were playing a bilateral series for the first time in 15 years, and Ganguly said that the atmosphere there was electric.”That was one of the best tours of my cricket career. I have rarely seen hospitality like that on and off the field. The people were great, the facilities and food was excellent. I want India to make more such tours. It’s also great for batsmen because they have some of the flattest pitches in the world,” Ganguly said.International teams have not toured Pakistan since the attack on the Sri Lankan team bus in 2009. Bilateral cricketing ties between India and Pakistan have also suffered since the 2008 terror attacks in Mumbai. Pakistan did visit India for a short limited-overs tour in 2012, but a more recent tour of the Middle East (Pakistan’s new ‘home venue’) was cancelled by the BCCI.last_img read more
