- The evolution of workplace risk for Covid-19 in Canadian healthcare workers and its relation to vaccination: A nested case-referent study: This study examined the risk of Covid-19 infection among healthcare workers in Canada. Cases of Covid-19 were matched with up to four referents and modifiable risks were identified. Results showed that the risk of infection evolved over time.
- We are meeting on Microsoft Teams: Forensic analysis in Windows, Android, and iOS operating systems: Digital forensic investigators are likely to encounter cases involving Microsoft Teams, a popular communication platform released in 2017, due to its increased popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there is limited forensic research on the application.
- Challenges Based on Antiplasmodial and Antiviral Activities of 7-Chloro-4-aminoquinoline Derivatives: We report the functionalization of N1-(7-chloroquinolin-4-yl) butane-1,4-diamine, leading to a series of 7-chloro-4-aminoquinoline derivatives, and their evaluation as potent anti-malarial and anti-viral agents. Some compounds showed promising anti-malarial effects against chloroquine-sensitive and -resistant Plasmodium falciparum strains, and in vitro against influenza A virus (IAV).

- Investigation of SARS-CoV-2 Transmission in The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square in the Context of Prevention Protocols, Utah, September-November 2021: The Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square organization resumed musical events in September 2021 with prevention protocols, including required vaccination and pre-event rapid antigen testing. We investigated potential SARS-CoV-2 transmission at these events and found that group singing and playing of wind instruments increased the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
- Hybrid model of intensive lifestyle intervention is potentially effective in patients with diabetes & obesity for post-COVID era: The Weight Achievement and Intensive Treatment (Why WAIT) program is a 12-week multidisciplinary intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) for patients with diabetes and obesity. During COVID-19, a virtual model (VM) was found to be equally effective in reducing body weight and improving glycemic control. We are now testing a newly-introduced hybrid model (HM) to accommodate ongoing social distancing restrictions.
- Convalescent Plasma Therapy against COVID-19: An update on the changing facets of the ongoing Pandemic: The current pandemic of COVID-19 has had a major impact on human life. Research is being done to develop vaccines and therapies to help stop the spread of SARS-CoV-2, but only limited options have been found so far.
- Factors Affecting Prolonged SARS-CoV-2 Infection and Development and Validation of Predictive Nomograms: This study aimed to develop a prediction model for prolonged SARS-CoV-2 infection by retrospectively recruiting 2938 confirmed patients with COVID-19. Clinical and laboratory data were collected and analyzed to identify factors associated with prolonged infection, and a prediction model was developed using logistic regression. The results showed that age, comorbidities, and laboratory parameters were associated with prolonged infection. The prediction model had an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 0.839.
- Hybrid model of intensive lifestyle intervention is potentially effective in patients with diabetes & obesity for post-COVID era: The Weight Achievement and Intensive Treatment (Why WAIT) program is a 12-week multidisciplinary intensive lifestyle intervention (ILI) for patients with diabetes and obesity. During COVID-19, a virtual model (VM) of the program was found to be equally effective in reducing body weight and improving glycemic control. A newly-introduced hybrid model (HM) is now being tested to accommodate ongoing social distancing measures.
- Menstrual symptoms variation among Lebanese women before and after the COVID-19 pandemic: This study aimed to assess the menstrual cycle, mental health, and lifestyle of Lebanese females of reproductive age during the COVID-19 pandemic, Beirut blast, and economic crisis.
- Patient-Centered Paradigm for Managing Autonomic Long COVID Symptoms During Sports and Exercise: This report presents a new patient-centered approach to managing post-COVID-19 dysautonomia symptoms during sports and exercise. The patient was a healthcare worker exposed before vaccination, who experienced postural orthostatic tachycardia plus exertional tachycardia, with postexertional fatigue. Nonpharmacological and pharmacological interventions were recommended.
