... This may have been caused by a lack of seroconversion in some patients, as plasma was collected within the first week after hospital admission. According to the literature, at least 11-14 days after the onset of the disease is reported to be necessary to observe an average seroconversion rate of approximately 90%-100% for antibodies (IgM or IgG) against the SARS-CoV-2 S and N proteins (31,(60)(61)(62)(63)(64)(65)(66)(67)(68)(69). Future investigations of the antibody dynamics, including in the early (acute) and late (convalescent) phases of COVID-19 infection, may provide more insight into this issue. ...
... In conclusion, as pasta is one of most common food in all the world, we focus on it for its clinical relevance in determining GI but also for the close relationship between food, immune response and individual antiviral defence [41] which needs to be better investigate. Probably the characteristics of the final mixture (starch and protein component) and in particular its rheological characteristics (viscosity, elasticity, toughness, etc.) can influence GI. ...
... On the other hand, there are few treatments for HF with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) [10]. In patients with HFrEF, the effect of treatment in specific subgroups (frail, cognitively impaired, nursing homes residents) has not been adequately studied [11,12]. Furthermore, comorbidity, widespread in HF, increases with age and is associated with a worse prognosis [1]. ...
