Diagnostic and prognostic value of hematological and immunological markers in COVID-19 infection: A meta-analysis of 6320 patients
Several hematological and immunological markers, in particular neutrophilic count, could be helpful to be included within the routine panel for COVID-19 infection evaluation to ensure risk stratification and effective management.
Vitamin D insufficiency as a potential culprit in critical COVID‐19 patients
This work aims to systematically explore the association of vitamin D serum levels with COVID‐19 severity and prognosis and to explore the role vitamin D has as an immune modulator.

Different genotypes of miR-499a rs3746444 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are associated with RA risk, disease activity, and methotrexate toxicity in the authors' population.
Dual biomarkers long non-coding RNA GAS5 and microRNA-34a co-expression signature in common solid tumors
The expression profile of miR-34a and one of its bioinformatically selected partner lncRNA growth arrest-specific 5 (GAS5) in a sample of Egyptian cancer patients, including three prevalent types of cancer, is quantified to suggest potential applicability of GAS5 and miR -34a with other conventional markers for various types ofcancer.
COVID‐19 and liver dysfunction: A systematic review and meta‐analysis of retrospective studies
Meta‐analysis of 20 retrospective studies identified that patients with a severe manifestation of COVID‐19 exhibited significantly higher levels of alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminOTransferases, and bilirubin values with prolonged prothrombin time, and lower albumin level was associated with asevere presentation of CO VID‐19.
