The bell-shaped jellyfish sighted near the vents may be of a new species "because no one has seen this color before>
A recent study revealed how the SARS-CoV-2 Spike (S)-protein interacts with human Estrogen Receptor Alpha (ERα) in lung tissue, which may increase the pro-coagulation activity of endothelial cells, enhancing the risk of thrombosis and shedding new light on the pathogenic mechanisms underlying SARS-CoV-2 infection>
Migraine is a common condition, involving a severe recurring headache but sometimes nausea, weakness and light sensitivity as well.
