A study confirms the existence of a defect in the immune system of those recovering from Corona
According to the “thehealthsite”, researchers were able to separate specific subsets of immune cells and analyze cell surface markers, through this complex information. Immunologists were able to analyze how each individual’s immune system responded during infection and during the recovery period.
Some of his findings revealed that if immune cells are activated and depleted due to infection, debilitated immune cells may increase susceptibility to secondary infections or impede the development of protective immunity to COVID-19.
The researchers were able to analyze the changes over time in two ways, the first was to monitor the changes in the surface markers over time, which were defined as days since the symptoms appeared for the samples that were not hospitalized, and the second was to directly compare the frequencies of these signs between the first and second clinic visits to the non-resident patients. The hospital, for whom blood samples were collected at two consecutive time points, and the most surprising discovery was the presence of patients who had not been admitted to the hospital.
University of South Florida researchers saw signs of regular activation in hospitalized patients, and also found that many signs of activation and fatigue were expressed at higher frequencies in recovery samples outside the hospital.
