Significant progress in understanding cancer pathogenesis, it remains one of the leading causes of death after cardiovascular diseases. Similarly viral infections have emerged from wildlife or re-emerged, generating serious threats to the global health. As a result, there is an urgent need for the development of novel, more effective anticancer and antiviral therapeutics. Scientists, medicinal chemists and researchers are continuously finding novel targets, mechanisms and molecules against theses severe and dangerous infections. Therefore, ongoing extensively study and research emphasizes 1,3,4 thiadiazole pharmacophore have versatile pharmacological actions. Due to mesoionic behaviour of 1,3,4 thiadiazole pharmacophore allows to enter and easily cross biological membrane which allow to interact various biological proteins. In this review study an attempt has been made of various mechanisms involved in cancer and viral prevalence with updated studies done so far. This review study also findings the role of 1,3,4 thiadiazole motif in the management of various cancers and viral infection. This study also highlighting research statics on clinical trials and various patents containing 1,3,4 thiadiazole derivatives. © 2022 The Author(s)

On December 31, 2019, the China Health Authority alerted WHO about 27 cases of pneumonia of unknown etiology in Wuhan City. It was subsequently named Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) and the disease as Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The disease has now become pandemic. Current review was done to summarize information on COVID-19 published in various scientific works. Electronic databases containing medical articles viz., MEDLINE/PubMed, Google Scholar etc were searched using the Medical Subject Headings 'COVID-19', '2019-nCoV', 'coronavirus' and 'SARS-CoV-2' during antecedent one year. All study designs were incorporated to harvest clinical, laboratory, imaging, and hospital course data. The intermediate host of the virus is still unknown. Respiratory droplets produced by the patient is main source of transmission. SARS-CoV-2 invades the airway epithelium by binding to angiotensin-converting enzyme-2 (ACE2) receptor with Coronavirus spike (S) protein. Most common symptoms are fever (98%), dry cough (77%), and dyspnea (63.5%). Later, complications like acute respiratory distress syndrome, septic shock etc may occur. Advanced age and co-morbidities like Diabetes have higher mortality otherwise Case Fatality Rate is 2-3%. RT-PCR is the diagnosis of choice. Since no universally accepted registered drug or FDA approved vaccine has come by now, prevention is the key. Hands should be regularly cleaned with soap or alcohol based sanitizer and in public, Nose and Mouth should be covered with face-mask and social distance of one meter should be maintained. While Vaccines are expected by early 2021, we should not forget to take comprehensive measures to prevent future outbreaks of zoonotic origin. Copyright © 2020, Kathmandu University.

Background. Students, as the most active and mobile part of population, often unite into educational and informal groups, move to other regions or countries, and present a specific risk group for the spread of new coronavirus infection. Thus, they require preventive vaccination. objective. the aim of the study is to study the immunological potency, tolerance, and efficacy of GamCOVID-Vac vaccine among students of Krasnodar. methods. 119 seronegative students (18–30 years old) were examined. SARSCoV-2 IgG (ELISA method) was determined 1, 3, and 6 months after two completed rounds of vaccination. Post-vaccination adverse events and COVID-19 cases were evaluated in the study. results. SARS-CoV-2 IgG level 1 month after vaccination ranged from 6.15 to 19.38 and was to 16.39 (AU/mL) ± 1,12. Immunological potency values ranged from 4.407 to 21.5 (AU/mL) (14.74 ± 2.93) 3 months after. IgG titers were in the range of 4.14 to 17.71 (AU/mL) (10.97 ± 4.69) 6 months after. Adverse events after vaccination were revealed in 34 respondents (28.6%). Among them, local (hyperemia, pain, edema) — 21 (17.6%): slight — 90.4%, major — 9.6%;general (fever, weakness, algor, headache, arthralgia, myalgia) — 13 (10.9%): slight — 69.2%, major — 30.8%. The increase in vaccination coverage in students from 30.3 to 79.1% reduced the COVID-19 morbidity from 3.81 to 1.57%. conclusion. Gam-COVID-Vac vaccine induced stable humoral response, demonstrated sufficient safety, and reduced morbidity 2.4-fold.
