Immunity COVID-19 & Autoimmunity “Post COVID Syndrome”
We wanted to share with you the recent study that is now in press in the journal “Clinical Immunology.” We identified which autoimmune target proteins cross-react with SARS-Co-V-2 spike and nuclear proteins. We have discovered that there is potential for the coronavirus infection to produce antibodies that may cross-react with the brain, thyroid gland, and the gut.
This discovery may explain why some patients have a systemic disease with the infection, and some do not. The bottom line is that, for some susceptible subgroups of people that get the coronavirus infection, it may trigger the onset of autoimmune disease or induce a flare-up of an existing autoimmune disease.
We are about to see many patients develop Post-COVID-19 Syndrome, and it will involve autoimmunity to some of the target proteins that we have found cross-react with the virus. Please share this link and information. Click Here
Excerpt from this poses some clinical questions to keep informed on….”Is it possible that some of the extensive organ, tissue, and cellular damage done by SARS-CoV-2 is due to viral antigenic mimicry with human tissue?
If the answer is yes, then we may face an increase in the rates of autoimmune disease in the future, because any factor that causes chronic inflammation in the body can potentially induce autoimmune disease.”
