Health Professionals Follow-Up Study

About HPFS:

The Health Professionals Follow-Up Study (HPFS) began in 1986. The purpose of the study is to evaluate a series of hypotheses about men’s health relating nutritional factors to the incidence of serious illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease, and other vascular diseases. This all-male study is designed to complement the all-female Nurses’ Health Study, which examines similar hypotheses. The HPFS is sponsored by the Harvard School of Public Health and is funded by the National Cancer Institute. Learn More About HPFS.

Thank you, participants! In 2018, nearly 90% of participants responded to the bi-annual study questionnaire. Their commitment provides the consistent data required to make progress in the study of men’s health.

Hey everyone

I made this lengthy write up, but then I felt silly because it used a lot of limited research to try to suggest Cetirizine/Levocetirizine as a potential defense against ARDS. I actually thought it would make an interesting research proposal (if it is please let me know, want to be a part), given all the other hail marries that are happening, but then I realized I don’t even know how to make a research proposal because I am still on my journey to finishing medical school.

I guess in short (the much shorter version) this was my rationale.


From a pathophysiological perspective, increased capillary permeability is a major contributing factor to ARDS. In COVID-19, infection from the SARS-CoV-2 seems to produce diffuse and comprehensive cellular damage throughout both lungs.1 Subsequent inflammatory processes become the key in the pathogenesis of ARDS. This diffuse damage releases
