[Comment] Efficacy of an adenovirus type 5 vectored SARS-CoV-2 vaccine

Despite remarkable accomplishments in SARS-CoV-2 vaccine development and production, there are still large regions of the world where access to vaccines remains limited.1 In some areas of the world vaccine hesitancy is also an obstacle to achieving high vaccination coverage.2 In addition to these challenges, there is waning immunity from the SARS-CoV-2...

[Articles] Abiraterone acetate and prednisolone with or without enzalutamide for high-risk non-metastatic prostate cancer: a meta-analysis of primary results from two randomised controlled phase 3 trials of the STAMPEDE platform protocol

Among men with high-risk non-metastatic prostate cancer, combination therapy is associated with significantly higher rates of metastasis-free survival compared with ADT alone. Abiraterone acetate with prednisolone should be considered a new standard treatment for this population.

[Articles] Final efficacy analysis, interim safety analysis, and immunogenicity of a single dose of recombinant novel coronavirus vaccine (adenovirus type 5 vector) in adults 18 years and older: an international, multicentre, randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled phase 3 trial

One dose of Ad5-nCoV is efficacious and safe in healthy adults aged 18 years and older.

[Comment] LGBTQ youth mental health during COVID-19: unmet needs in public health and policy

Although the negative impacts of COVID-19 on youth and young adult global mental health are recognised,1 less attention has been paid to LGBTQ youth—a historically neglected population in health care, policies, and research, despite evidence of high unmet mental health needs.2–4 Unfortunately, the pandemic is likely to have far-reaching negative effects...

[Comment] The health and wellbeing of Indigenous adolescents: a global collective for an equitable and sustainable future

Indigenous peoples, comprising almost 500 million individuals from across 90 countries, hold the longest continuous cultures on this planet.1 Despite the negative impacts of colonisation, Indigenous peoples have survived and continue to nurture and live their Indigenous knowledges, languages, and cultural practices.

[Comment] Oral health problems are global and need to be addressed in the USA

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown unequivocally that science, innovation, collaboration, and leadership are important for the health and wellbeing of all people.

[Articles] Two-dose ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 vaccine protection against COVID-19 hospital admissions and deaths over time: a retrospective, population-based cohort study in Scotland and Brazil

We found waning vaccine protection of ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 against COVID-19 hospital admissions and deaths in both Scotland and Brazil, this becoming evident within three months of the second vaccine dose. Consideration needs to be given to providing booster vaccine doses for people who have received ChAdOx1 nCoV-19.

[Correspondence] Reduced neutralisation of SARS-CoV-2 omicron B.1.1.529 variant by post-immunisation serum

According to WHO, SARS-CoV-2 is estimated to have caused 265 million infections and more than 5 million deaths over the past 2 years. Current vaccines are based on the original SARS-CoV-2 strain and are designed primarily to raise an antibody response against the spike protein (S), although elicited T-cell responses can also contribute to protection...

[Comment] Managing waning vaccine protection against SARS-CoV-2 variants

Less than 2 years after its emergence, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused more than 5 million deaths worldwide. The expeditious development of safe and effective vaccines against COVID-19 brings hope that the world could soon return to pre-pandemic normality if vaccine uptake is sufficiently high. However, uncertainty about the duration of vaccine protection...
