World Health Organisation lays out plan to emerge from COVID’s emergency phase Geneva: The World Health Organisation has released an updated plan for COVID-19, laying out key strategies that, if implemented in 2022, would allow the world to end the emergency phase of the pandemic. The plan, released on Wednesday in Europe, includes three possible […]
It comes down to how much risk you’re willing to tolerate At the start of the pandemic, recovery from a coronavirus infection was perhaps a reason for cautious optimism: If you were lucky enough to bounce back from Covid-19, you had some level of immunity. Over time, research bore this out, though it also showed […]
Covid survivors may develop this nerve complication 90 days post recovery A recent long Covid study finds out that the Covid survivors could develop peripheral neuropathy, a condition that causes damage to the nerves connecting brain and spinal cord, 90 days post recovery. Long Covid is one of the many reasons people dread getting infected […]
New research may inform understanding of long Covid symptoms The coronavirus that causes Covid-19 can spread within days from the airways to the heart, brain and almost every organ system in the body, where it may persist for months, a study found. In what they describe as the most comprehensive analysis to date of the […]
Why are COVID-19 cases rising around the world? Just when we thought the worst was over, the sudden surge in COVID-19 cases in many parts of the world including China, South Korea, Hong Kong and certain European countries has worried experts around the world. Recently, China reported its first coronavirus-related deaths in a year, even […]
Enzoimmune Active in Recovery and Protection of the human health Enzoimunne Active is extremely important in the recovery and protection of the body after a severe viral infection, when the reduced human immunity needs a helper, useful immunomodulation – both to deal with possible new pathogens and to return the immune system to normal and […]
Which genes protect us from severe forms of COVID-19? COVID-19 infection can occur in different ways. Some patients will be asymptomatic or mild, while others will need to be treated in an intensive care unit or even risk their lives. In the presence of risk factors such as obesity, diabetes or old age, some previously […]
The adaptive immune system and the preparation of its cells The immune system consists of two parts. One protects a person from birth (congenital), and the other has the most valuable library of weapons against any microbe (adaptive), but first it must be prepared.
What causes severe forms of COVID-19? Two international studies have shown genetic and immunological abnormalities that account for 25% of severe forms of COVID-19. Since the beginning of the pandemic, in people infected with COVID-19, the disease often has been asymptomatic or with mild symptoms. However, some people develop severe forms, accompanied by complicated pneumopathies […]
Retroviruses in the human genome may be related to severe forms of COVID-19 Viral infections can sometimes activate human endogenous retroviruses, referred to as HERV. The latter are specific genomic sequences that bear some resemblance to certain retroviruses. These HERVs represent approximately 8% of the human genome.
