Preliminary results positive for Moderna mRNA flu vaccine US biotech company Moderna on Friday announced promising data from an early-stage human trial of its mRNA flu shot, based on the same technology used in its successful COVID-19 vaccine. The experimental flu shot was found to be safe, and successfully evoked high levels of antibodies in 180 people at all dosage levels, in both younger and older adults. “Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, approximately three million people died each year due to respiratory infections, and many more are hospitalized or become ill as a result of these viruses,” said Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel in a statement hailing the result. Side effects were mild, and occurred more often in younger than older adults. The most common included pain and tenderness at the injection site, as well as headaches, muscle and joint aches, and tiredness. The next stage of the trial, involving 500 people, began last month, and aims to firm up the right dosage level and compare the Moderna flu vaccine to already-licensed shots developed using more traditional methods. Interim results are expected in early 2022.
Moderna Stock Crash Has Wiped Nearly $100 Billion As Flu Vaccine Results Trigger Latest Plunge Moderna shares plummeted Friday morning after the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based biotech firm reported early data for its seasonal flu vaccine that failed to impress investors, intensifying a crash that’s wiped out nearly 50% of the value in one of the year’s best-performing stocks.Shares of Moderna fell 8% Friday by 11:30 a.m. ET after the company reported early data for its seasonal flu vaccine that showed robust increases in antibody concentration among patients in the study. Though Moderna touted the results as positive, Morgan Stanley analyst Matthew Harison said the initial data looked “undifferentiated” with biotech firm Sanofi’s flu vaccine, which is already on the market—a disappointment for investors seeking data that “supported clearly better efficacy.”Shares plunged as much as 13% after the early morning report, pulling prices to near one-month lows until they pared losses after Moderna announced a new agreement to supply 20 million more Covid-19 vaccine doses to the World Health Organization’s Covax initiative, which is now on track to receive about 54 million Moderna vaccine doses in 2021.
Energy crisis: 3 in 5 Americans more exhausted now than ever in their lives Three in five Americans feel more tired now than they’ve ever been in their lives. In a study of 2,000 respondents, 59 percent say that spending so much time at home since early 2020 has permanently sapped them of their energy. Fifty-eight percent confess to feeling disjointed and unfocused, and catching a few moments of sleep doesn’t appear to be a viable solution. Over half the poll (55%) think no amount of rest can help them feel focused during the day. The survey, conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Monster Energy, found the most common energy-depleting activity to be poor sleep scheduling, according to 56 percent of respondents. One in two people also blamed long work hours (53%) or staying inside too much (52%) during lockdowns as the reason for their perpetual exhaustion. Forty-six percent add their exhaustion is due to too much screen time, while 41 percent blame the lack of routine in their lives during the worst of the pandemic. According to the one in three respondents working from home (34%), many of the activities they used to keep their energy levels up are no longer possible. Nearly seven in ten (69%) even claim that working from home has messed with their sleep schedule.
Junk food and the brain: How modern diets lacking in micronutrients may contribute to angry rhetoric Emotional, non-rational, even explosive remarks in public discourse have escalated in recent years. Politicians endure insults during legislative discussions; scientists receive emails and tweets containing verbal abuse and threats. What’s going on? This escalation in angry rhetoric is sometimes attributed to social media. But are there other influences altering communication styles? As researchers in the field of nutrition and mental health, and authors of The Better Brain, we recognize that many in our society experience brain hunger, impairing their cognitive function and emotion regulation. Obviously, we are not deficient in macronutrients: North Americans tend to get sufficient protein, fats (though usually not the best fats) and carbohydrates (usually not the good complex carbs). But we are being cheated of micronutrients (minerals and vitamins), particularly in those whose food choices are dominated by ultra-processed products. Ultra-processed products include things like soft drinks, packaged snacks, sweetened breakfast cereal and chicken nuggets. They generally contain only trivial amounts of a few micronutrients unless they are fortified, but even then, only a few at higher amounts.
CBD Associated With Reductions in Antipsychotic Medications Schizophrenia is a mental health condition that involves thoughts or experiences that are not based in reality, among other things. It’s a condition that affects roughly 20 million people across the globe at any given time. It is not as common as many other mental health conditions, however, it is a very serious condition nonetheless. People that suffer from schizophrenia may experience disorganized speech, erratic behavior, as well as difficulty concentrating and remembering things. It can be a very debilitating condition in some cases, and may lead to decreased participation in life’s daily activities. Unfortunately, it is still unknown what causes schizophrenia, although genetics, environment, and altered brain chemistry and structure are likely contributing factors. Antipsychotic medications are the most commonly prescribed treatment for schizophrenia, however, those prescription drugs often come at a great expense to the patient both figuratively and literally. In addition to being expensive, antipsychotic medications carry potential side effects such as weight gain, nausea, and severe depression.
