Please feel free to leave your questions for Dr. Chida here in the chatbox. We will answer questions at the end!
Hydroxychloroquine is antimalaria please, not antiviral
Dr. Chida indicated in her introduction that it is not an antiviral but that she would discuss its role in this section as its not clear if and how it works in this scenario
In plasma convalescence therapy, pls comment if there is no facilities to asses the titre of IgG SARS CoV-2 in donor quantitatively. but only qualitatively. Is it acceptable?
It would be useful to at least try to titer the IgG antibody by serial dilutions if possible on an EIA, but there is little data as to how high the titer should be. Will ask Dr. Chida
If a facility can't do Plasma isolation can you do a standard blood transfusion as a possible convalescence therapy?
Is there any indication that certain immunomodulators (e.g., checkpoint inhibitors in cancer care, G-CSF) could elevate the risk of infection or severity of disease (incl. CK storm)?
Thanks for joining everyone! Please let us know your feedback on our series here: https://forms.gle/UY7ZdMoP5V7LvphD6 We will also send this in an email.
It's possible that patients that are already suppressed may have high enough levels of ARVs in their blood to have some effect on the SARS-cov-2 virus as opposed to trying to start people on therapy when they present with Covid?
About the antibody detection and or quantification, how can we discriminate between a specific detection for COVID19 versus detection of any Coronavirus like previous exposure to SARS, MERS and other strains?
are we seeing antiphospholipid syndrome as a reason of thromboembolic events in CoVid 19
^ same question as Deepthi. Thanks
Can you comment on the efficacy and safety of the options you have discussed on pregnant women.
Will you give this treatment to patients with artificial heart valves?
Any thoughts on VTE prophylaxis for severely ill patients?
I understand that COVID19 infection has an effect of coagulation testing.

Home oxygen is great!!
is there any difference in the course of progression of COVID 19 in patients having SLE for instance that are already on hydroxylchloroquine for their treatment ?
