      Last week, the FDA tapped the Mayo Clinic to lead and coordinate the effort and evaluate the treatment’s effectiveness.

      Since then, hospital systems around the nation have registered through the Mayo Clinic to start treating patients with convalescent plasma. Texas hospitals that plan to try the treatment include Methodist Hospital Stone Oak in San Antonio, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas and the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

      Five patients at Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston — part of the Baylor College of Medicine — have been treated with convalescent plasma, said Dr. Ashok Balasubramanyam, vice president of academic integration and associate dean of academic affairs at the Baylor College of Medicine. The school has also been authorized to conduct a clinical trial, expected to start within a couple of weeks.

      On Thursday, a patient in Austin received a convalescent plasma infusion, the first in the city, said Dr. Jeff Yorio, a hematologist and oncologist at Texas Oncology who helped get the program started in Austin.

      혈장 치료로 2명 완치...정부, 곧 치료지침 발표 It has emerged that two elderly coronavirus patients in South Korea made a full recovery after receiving blood plasma treatment. Health authorities say plasma treatment guidelines will be announced within days. Kim Hyo-sun reports. South Korean researchers have proved the effectiveness of blood plasma treatment on coronavirus patients. Doctors at Yonsei Severance Hospital in Seoul administered plasma therapy on two elderly coronavirus patients,... a 67-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man. They were treated with plasma from people who had recovered and have developed antibodies to the virus,... enabling their bodies to protect themselves from the virus' attacks. One of the patients was discharged after making a full recovery,... while the other is set to be sent home soon. "The patients continued to suffer from acute respiratory distress syndrome even after antiviral treatment. Then we decided to go with plasma treatment in combination with steroids." Plasma is a yellowish blood fluid you get from centrifuging blood. It carries various nutrients including protein as well as antibodies. Antibodies,... which are Y-shaped proteins produced by the immune system,... stop intruders from harming the body. These invaders, called antigens,... can be viruses, bacteria, or other chemicals. Antibodies also enable macrophages to engulf viruses and bacteria. The South Korean government says it will soon provide detailed guidelines for the treatment,... which was also used to treat patients during the MERS outbreak. "The guidelines for plasma treatment are nearly done, and we will swiftly commence research on other means of treatment." For now, it's crucial to secure enough plasma from people who have fully recovered from COVID-19. The government also needs to prepare for possible side-effects as no large-scale clinical trials have been conducted yet. Kim Hyo-sun, Arirang News.

  3. Many people seem to act like things will just go back to normal after this Coronavirus. I think we are all in for a rude surprise. Too much supply AND demand destruction has already happened. This won't be just our average "recession".

    When small businesses do start opening back up will they call in 50% of their staff at first? What will the other 50% of unemployed employees do in the meantime?

    I guess we shall see soon.

      Topics vs. Posts

      split non sequitur posts off to new topics.  Or merge them into an existing older topic.  Merging is probably best when appropriate.

  14. i very much enjoy and appreciate these study materials , but now they are now allowing me to down load them any longer is there something i am not doing right ?

      You need to join the club you are wanting to interact with first. Then you'll be able to download.

      Look in the cover photo of the group toward the right hand side

  15. I have been a member since 2015 and it never allows me to open the Weekly Study materials for the week.

    What do I have to do to have access?????   please   U R G E N T

    1. The Librarian

      The Librarian

      You need to "join" the club you are wanting to interact with .... that should solve it.

  16. When I try to open the Weekly meeting material s for April 15 it goes to a page that states I do not have permission to view it. I have been a member and have always been able to view these. Has something changed?

    1. The Librarian

      The Librarian

      Sorry... my mistake....

      I wanted to move the older Weekly Study Materials posts to the JW's Only group and I ended up moving all of them.

      Going forward just keep posting them where you always have and I will only move them after some months to the other internal club.

  22. I listened again.  Thanks.  We often listen but do not follow the advice.  I recently sent money to a refugee  and a close friend (a sister) tried to talk me out of it because the "brother" may not be a strong brother or may not use the money for the purpose I sent it to him. Now that I call fleshly thinking.  I rather err on the side of showing love and mercy than the other side. 

    1. The Librarian

      The Librarian

      I agree. In the end it is always better to err on the side of love rather than judgement.

  23. 7,677 Profile Page Views alone!!!  Look at JTR go!  .... Imagine how many views a day you receive on all your posts combined? 

    1. The Librarian

      The Librarian

      I guess not... although I often compare modern "hits" to the time spent walking the streets "from house to house" to find one person "at home"......

      We reach people in different ways and times with small snippets of data nowadays rather than the

      192 page books of yesteryear.

      It was truly a different place and time.
