Is it safe? Is it efficacious? Dr. Michael Joyner, Principal Investigator for Expanded Access to Convalescent Plasma for the Treatment of Patients with COVID-19, discusses what’s known about this treatment option, information that’s currently being gathered, and how you can get involved.AABB Coronavirus Resources: http://www.aabb.org/advocacy/regulatorygovernment/Pages/AABB-Coronavirus-Resources.aspxAskMayoExpert COVID-19 Resources: https://askmayoexpert.mayoclinic.org/navigator/COVID-19Connect with the Mayo Clinic’s School of Continuous Professional Development online at https://ce.mayo.edu/ or on Twitter @MayoMedEd. 
There is strong evidence that exercise is wildly beneficial. There is even stronger evidence that most people hate to exercise. So if a pill could mimic the effects of working out, why wouldn’t we want to take it?

Michael J. Joyner, MD, noted expert on human physiology, takes us on an informative trip as he discusses many issues from human performance to blood flow. Dr. Joyner is an experienced researcher in the area of performance and exercise physiology. Privately, and as a consultant for NASA and NIH, his grant-funded research has led to significant revelations in the understanding of muscle and skin blood flow, athletic performance, and blood pressure regulation. Dr. Joyner discusses his focus on integrative physiology. Throughout his impressive career, Dr. Joyner has studied many areas pertaining to blood flow, overall circulation, and performance. In the podcast he details the restorative properties of systems, and discusses angiogenesis, the process that allows for new blood vessels to form from preexisting vessels.  Dr. Joyner provides a historical context regarding gene therapy as well as various drugs used to initiate or enable blood vessel growth. As he explains, however, the best method is simply exercise. He continues with his discussion hitting various topics such as drug re-purposing, which is when drugs are created for a specific purpose but are later discovered to be more ideal for another purpose medically.  He recounts some of the past studies regarding bed rest that led to the current view that mobilization is important for recovery, and as such most patients are encouraged to get moving as soon as possible after surgical procedures. He expounds upon the importance of exercise in general and talks about its specific value to those who are prediabetic or diabetic. He discusses various drugs on the market and his thoughts on the future of research.
