Neue Studie ergibt: Xlear tötet und/oder deaktiviert SARS-CoV-2; Wirksamkeit gegen neue Varianten

first_img Twitter Twitter Pinterest EVANSTON, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 26, 2021– Aus einer neuen In vitro -Studie, die von der Utah State University und der Northwestern University gemeinsam durchgeführt wurde, geht hervor, dass Wirkstoffe von Xlear (Grapefruitkernextrakt und Xylitol) maßgeblich zur Eliminierung von SARS-CoV-2, dem für COVID-19 verantwortlichen Virus, beitragen. Der Bildgebungsteil der Forschungsstudie wurde in der BioCryo-Anlage am NUANCE Center der Northwestern University durchgeführt. Diese Pressemitteilung enthält multimediale Inhalte. Die vollständige Mitteilung hier ansehen: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210126005926/de/ Using electron microscopy, we have visual evidence showing that xylitol and grapefruit seed extract (GSE) counters the virus. The GSE kills the virus, while the xylitol prevents the virus from attaching to the cell walls.

In der Studie heißt es: „Nach einer Kontaktzeit von 25 Minuten reduzierte das Nasenspray das Virus von 4,2 auf 1,7 log10 CCID50 pro 0,1 mL – eine statistisch signifikante Reduzierung (P<0.001) um 2,5 log10 CCID50.“ Die Studie von Northwestern/Utah State ist die neueste von einer Reihe von Studien, die zu dem Schluss kommen, dass Xlear gegen SARS-CoV-2 wirkt. Die Studie ist jedoch hinsichtlich zweier entscheidender Aspekte bahnbrechend: „Zunächst schließen wir, dass Xlear nicht nur gegen SARS-CoV-2 wirkt, sondern wahrscheinlich auch effektiv bei der Verhinderung der Verbreitung zukünftiger H1N1-Viren sowie anderer Virusepidemien ist. Angesichts der leichter übertragbaren Varianten, die wir jetzt haben, ist das jetzt sehr wichtig“, sagte Professor Mark Cannon von der Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University. „Zweitens konnten wir mittels der Elektronenmikroskopie visuelle Beweise dafür finden, dass Xylitol und Grapefruitkernextrakt gegen das Virus wirken. Der Grapefruitkernextrakt tötet das Virus ab, während das Xylitol verhindert, dass es an den Zellwänden andockt. Das Bild (angehängt) zeigt SARS-CoV-2-Viren außerhalb der Zelle und nie an sie angedockt, womit eine Infektion verhindert werden kann“, sagte Dr. Cannon weiter. Die Studie postuliert, dass Xylitol als Täuschungsmanöver für SARS-CoV-2 fungiert und das Andocken des Virus an das Kernprotein an der Zellwand verhindert. Die Gemeinschaftsstudie kommt zu dem Schluss: „Da es keine Risikofaktoren bei der Anwendung der Kombinationstherapie mit Xylitol/Grapefruitkernextrakt gibt, das [Xlear]-Nasenspray rezeptfrei im Handel erhältlich ist und [Xlear] zudem das bequeme Tragen von Masken über längere Zeit ermöglicht, sollte die Anwendung dieser präventiven antiviralen Therapie gefördert werden.“ Vollständige Studie: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.12.02.408575v3.full Weitere Informationen zu Xlear (einschließlich Bezugsquellen): https://xlear.com/ Die Ausgangssprache, in der der Originaltext veröffentlicht wird, ist die offizielle und autorisierte Version.

Scott Stringer accepts some real estate money as mayoral rivals rake in cash

first_imgMessage* Share via Shortlink Message* Email Address* Email Address* Contact Kathryn Brenzel TagsPoliticsReal Estate and Politics Full Name* Email Address* Email Address* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlinkcenter_img Clockwise from left: Scott Stringer, Eric Adams, Shaun Donovan and Ray McGuire (Getty/Photo illustration by Kevin Rebong for The Real Deal)More than a year ago, the New York Post, citing unnamed sources, reported that Comptroller Scott Stringer would join a growing list of mayoral candidates rejecting campaign contributions from the real estate industry.That wasn’t quite true, it turns out: Landlords, brokers and other real estate players gave $10,560 to the city comptroller’s mayoral campaign in the past six months, according to an analysis by The Real Deal.Stringer’s campaign, which was quoted in the Post story and for nearly a year did not refute it, told TRD last week that its ban applies only to developers.A spokesperson for Stringer said the campaign made a pledge at the start of 2019 to stop taking developers’ money. But it was a silent pledge. “We just made the decision to stop,” the spokesperson said.“To make sure the price of admission to our city isn’t a $2 million condo, Scott will fundamentally change the paradigm when it comes to development,” the spokesperson said in a statement.One notable contributor to Stringer was Bess Freedman, the head of Brown Harris Stevens, who donated $500 last month. Employees of the brokerage donated $2,950 to Stringer in all during the half-year period.To be sure, the other mayoral candidates who have raised more than $1 million — Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, Wall Street exec Ray McGuire and former housing official Shaun Donovan — have accepted far more real estate money than Stringer. The three received a total of more than $369,000 in contributions of $1,000 or more from real estate and construction interests over the same six months.Read moreStringer launches campaign, taking aim at real estateMayoral hopeful Stringer unveils housing planMayoral race goes from bad to worse for real estate Message* Contact Kevin Sun Full Name* Full Name* Message* Contact Keith Larsen Media coverage has mentioned — erroneously, it turns out — Stringer’s real estate money ban on a number of occasions without being corrected by his campaign.“Stringer has stopped taking real estate money,” City & State wrote last January, two weeks after the Post story.Six months later, Gotham Gazette wrote, “Whether or not candidates accept real estate-linked campaign donations is already splitting the likely Democratic mayoral field, with, for example, Adams taking them and both Comptroller Scott Stringer and City Council Speaker Corey Johnson saying they are refusing such funds.” (Johnson has since dropped out.)When Stringer formally entered the mayoral race in September, Politico noted, “Stringer currently has $2.3 million in his campaign warchest — more than any other mayoral candidate. He had been relying on maximum donations from real estate executives before that became a lightning rod when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez won office in 2018.”The Post calculated Stringer’s overall haul from the industry at $859,000 since 2014. Stringer’s decision to stop accepting contributions from developers was not applied retroactively, although he did return the portion of donations above $2,000 to participate in the city’s enhanced matching-funds program.Here is a look at the other three $1 million-and-more fundraisers.Eric AdamsAs of the mid-January campaign finance disclosure, covering the previous six months, Adams had raised the most money — $8.6 million. In the past six months he received $80,500 in 47 donations of $1,000 or more from real estate and construction sources. Of those, 33 were for the $2,000 maximum for candidates participating in the city’s 8-to-1 matching-funds program.Adams’ recent four-figure real estate donations came from a variety of industry players. Sanford, Jonathan and Joanna Sirulnick of multifamily firm Ditmas Management gave $2,000 apiece, as did VI Development Group CEO Terence Park and Israel Neiman of Sequoia Development Group.One noteworthy, non-real estate $2,000 donor to Adams was MSG Entertainment CEO James Dolan, who is counting on the city to renew the Garden’s operating permit, which expires in 2023. Dolan also gave Donovan and McGuire $5,100, the maximum for candidates not in the 8-to-1 program. (Donovan opted for an older version of the program with has a 6-to-1 match, up to $1,050 per donor.)Ray McGuireMcGuire hasn’t shied away from real estate donations either. The former Citigroup vice chairman recently told TRD that he would accept money from anyone whose interests and vision for the city are “aligned” with his own.Counting only four-figure donations, industry professionals have provided more than $207,000 to his campaign, according to the January filing.Compass CEO Robert Reffkin (whom McGuire has called a mentee), iStar’s Jay Sugarman, Ogden CAP Properties’ Philip Milstein, Cayre Management’s Jared Epstein and Rudin Management’s Beth DeWoody each gave the maximum amount of $5,100.It appears that Square Foot president Michael Colacino and Joe Rose, chair of Rose Urban Strategies, gave McGuire more than the maximum permitted. Filings show that Colacino donated $3,333 over the limit and that Rose gave $5,100 twice. A spokesperson for McGuire’s campaign didn’t respond to requests for comment.Other industry executives, including Stonehenge Partners’ CEO Ofer Yardeni, developer William Macklowe, CBRE’s New York Tri-State Region CEO Mary Ann Tighe, Olshan Properties CEO Andrea Olshan and Lee & Associates president James Wacht, also contributed to McGuire.Shaun DonovanReal estate contributions of $1,000 or more to Donovan’s campaign totaled at least $82,200, according to TRD’s analysis.Donovan served as the city’s commissioner of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development from 2004 to 2009 under Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and as the Obama administration’s secretary of Housing and Urban Development from 2009 to 2014. He’s received campaign contributions from several of the city’s big real estate players.Silverstein Properties chairman Larry Silverstein, Rockrose Development CEO Henry Elghanayan and Andrea Olshan each donated the maximum $5,100. CBRE’s Mary Ann Tighe, Wells Fargo Multifamily Capital group head Alan Wiener and Durst Organization chief development officer Alexander Durst each donated $2,000.Loews Hotels chairman Jonathan Tisch and wife Lizzie each donated $5,100, as did M&T Realty Capital president and CEO Michael Berman, and Fisher Brothers partner Winston Fisher.Contact Erik Engquist Full Name*last_img read more

Pogacar wins stage nine as Roglic takes over Yellow jersey

first_img(BBC) – Britain’s Adam Yates lost the leader’s yellow jersey to Primoz Roglic as Tadej Pogacar won stage nine of the Tour de France.Yates was dropped on the final climb of the 153km route from Pau to Laruns on another punishing day in the Pyrenees.Marc Hirschi led for over 80km before being caught 1.5km from the finish, where Pogacar edged fellow Slovenian Roglic in a sprint.Mitchelton-Scott’s Yates drops to eighth in the overall standings.The 28-year-old crossed the line in 15th having looked resigned to the situation on the descent from the Col de Marie Blanque towards the finish.As well as losing 54 seconds to the leading group, which also contained defending champion Egan Bernal, Yates also lost time to the likes of Romain Bardet, Guillame Martin and Nairo Quintana.Bernal is now 21 seconds behind Roglic, who again justified his pre-race favourite tag with a series of accelerations on the final climb.“Everybody dreams of wearing the yellow jersey one day in his life so first off I’m just happy how things are,” said current Vuelta a Espana champion Roglic.“It’s a fight for every second now and lots of things will happen to each of us on the road to Paris.”After Monday’s rest day, stage 10 is a flat 168.5km ride from Ile d’Oleron to Ile de Re.‘It was fun while it lasted’Yates, who moves to Ineos Grenadiers next season, sits 62 seconds off the overall lead after Roglic benefited from time bonuses.The Englishman says he will revert to his original plan of targeting stage wins after four days in yellow.“I did my best,” he said. “I knew coming into the race I wasn’t 100%.“I gave everything I could to hang on. I think we can be pretty proud of what we did. We’ll freshen up with the rest day and go after some stages.“I did what I could but there were just some guys with better condition than me. It is what it is.“There are a lot of stages in the last week that suit me quite well so we’ll see what we can do. It’s a big honour to ride in yellow and it was fun while it lasted.”Pogacar makes historyDespite only being 21 years old, Pogacar arrived in France as an outside favourite to win the yellow jersey after finishing third in the Vuelta a Espana in 2019 – his maiden season as a professional.This victory saw him become the youngest stage winner at the Tour since Lance Armstrong in 1993 and also the youngest in the 21st Century.While he lost time in the crosswinds into Lavaur in Friday’s seventh stage, he has recovered 42 seconds in the Pyrenees to move up to seventh place from 16th, 44 seconds behind Roglic.“It was really crazy, and after that hard day to win the stage is incredible,” Pogacar said.“I just wanted to gain as much time as I could in the GC [general classification] but in the last 800m I knew that a stage win is also 10 seconds so I was focused on the sprint and it was just full gas.“Primoz is really good. He has won [stages] before and he will win again. I hope we can do great things.”Stage nine result1. Tadej Pogacar (Slo/UAE-Team Emirates) 3hrs 55mins 17secs2.
