In a study published in Physics of Fluids, modeling conducted in June 2020 showed strains of COVID-19 on surfaces—such as metal, leather, and plastic—were killed in as little as 30 seconds of treatment with argon-fed, cold atmospheric plasma.
The study found patients who received radiation 34 days or fewer before their infusion with CART-B cell maturation antigen (BCMA) cells did not have worse rates of severe cytokine release syndrome or neurotoxicity, which are 2 common adverse effects of the cellular therapy.
Pharmacists assist their colleagues in drug preparation, ensure that patients understand treatment expectations, manage adverse effects, and provide monitoring and follow-up to improve quality of life and patient outcomes.
