Blood type really affects the risks of COVID-19 infection
The researchers found that patients with blood types 3 and 4 and Rh positive had a higher risk of infection with SARS-CoV-2. It was also confirmed once again that people with the first blood group have the best protection against the virus. At the same time, scientists are convinced that the blood group cannot be associated with the severity of COVID-19.
How many people are immune to coronavirus after carrying the disease
The researchers found that these antibodies after COVID-19 are stored for at least 90 days in more than 90% of people. Moreover, in most patients, the level of antibodies is sufficient not only to attach antibodies to the virus, but also to completely neutralize the pathogen, after which it loses its ability to penetrate cells and infect them.
Chinese vector vaccine for COVID-19 showed low efficacy in the elderly
The vaccine, tentatively named Ad5-nCoV, is based on a pathogenic adenovirus. The gene of the SARS-CoV-2 virus is inserted into its genome. The adenovirus delivers the SARS-CoV-2 genes to the human body, and antibodies are produced to the corresponding proteins of the coronavirus in humans.
The main goal of the study was to assess the response of the immune system to the vaccine and determine its effective doses that will be used in the next phase. The next, third, phase of the study will have to show whether the vaccine protects against COVID-19 in real life.
The effectiveness of the Chinese vaccine
In 95% of the participants who received the high dose of the vaccine, scientists found the production of T cells or antibodies against the coronavirus. In the low dose group, they were found in 91% of the participants.
The study authors point out that participants who had immunity to the adenovirus used to make the vaccine developed much less immunity to SARS-CoV-2. A total of 52% of the study participants were found to be immune to the pre-vaccination adenovirus.
The older people are, the more often they have immunity against adenovirus. Therefore, when using this vaccine, immunity is less well developed in older people. The production of antibodies is especially affected.
