Covid-19: Severe course – strong immune response

The results are still a preprint – a preliminary publication, so they have not yet been reviewed by other scientists. However, the research team led by Professor Martina Sester believes that they are so important that the research results have already been published. Because they showed, in contrast to previous statements, that people who were seriously ill with Covid-19 then give a stronger immune response.

For this purpose, Sester and colleagues from infection medicine, internal medicine and hemostaseology (blood coagulation) at the Saarland University Hospital examined the patients’ T cells. “Just like antibodies, T cells are part of the body’s specific immune response, which is specially tailored to a particular pathogen,” explains Sester.

Comparison of severe and mild cases

According to Sester, the study was the first to compare severe and mild disease courses. “So far we have assumed that patients with severe disease have the poorer immune system and those with mild symptoms have the better,” says the immunologist. “But it’s exactly the other way around.” The more severe the course, the more T cells and the greater the number of specific antibodies against Sars-CoV-2.

However, there is also a problem in this, because the immune system “then has great difficulty in reducing the excessive immune response again when the viral load drops and the replication of the viruses, for example in the lung tissue, could be stopped,” says Sester. If the virus disappears, T cells and the antibodies can direct themselves against the body’s own tissue like in a kind of autoimmune reaction, which can lead to organ damage.

Do not get sick! This is a way to increase body immunity

KONTAN.CO.ID – JAKARTA. In addition to the discipline of implementing health protocols, you also need to do ways to increase body immunity to prevent transmission of the Covid-19 Virus. There are many things you can do to make your immune system stronger.

Eating nutritious foods, reducing stress, and adopting a healthy lifestyle are some of the things you can do. How to increase your immunity can make you better prepared to fight harmful pathogens or other disease causes.

Get enough sleep

You can do ways to increase your body’s immunity by having quality sleep time. Quoting from Healthline (healthline.com), insufficient sleep time is associated with susceptibility to disease.

A study involving 164 adults showed that people who slept under 6 hours were more prone to catching colds than people who slept more than 6 hours per night. Having enough sleep can keep your immune system awake.

Lots of Vegetable Consumption

The next way to increase immunity is by eating vegetables, fruit, seeds and nuts. These foods contain high levels of antioxidants and nutrients so they can make the body stronger.

The antioxidants in vegetables and other foods can fight free radicals and reduce inflammation. Not only that, vegetables and fruits are also rich in vitamin C which can help reduce fever in a short time.

Eat Healthy Fats

Healthline also states that you can use healthy fats as a way to increase your immunity. You can find healthy fats in olive oil or salmon. The two types of food have a lot of anti-inflammatory properties.

Even though mild inflammation is normal, if not handled properly it will endanger the body’s immunity. Therefore, consuming healthy fats is an effort you can do to maintain the body’s immune system.

Don’t be too stressed

Another way to increase immunity is to regulate the stress you are experiencing. Healthline says that prolonged stress can also cause inflammation, which can interfere with immune cells.

There are many things you can do to reduce stress levels. You can do meditation, yoga, and take up hobbies. If necessary, you can consult a counselor.

3 Types of Drinks That Damage the Immune System

Jakarta, CNN Indonesia –

In the middle pandemic, immune system must be maintained properly. To guard against it, avoid several types drink which can be destructive immune system.

The immune system itself is responsible for immunity, which is the body’s defense against disease threats that come from outside.

In fact, whatever goes into the mouth can affect the immune system. There are some foods and drinks that can help boost the immune system, but some can actually decrease it.

Here are some types of drinks that can damage the immune system, citing various sources.

1. Soft drinks

Whatever type, soft drinks are clearly not good for health. Quoting Hyperbiotics, Soft drinks are rich in artificial ingredients, including sweeteners like aspartame. None of these artificial ingredients can help maintain immune function.

Research has shown that these ingredients can reduce the ability of good bacteria in the gut and have a negative impact on glucose metabolism. Both can have an impact on decreasing the body’s ability to respond to potential disease threats from outside.

2. High sugar drinks

Various types of packaged drinks are available in the market. Unfortunately, many of these packaged drinks are high in sugar and harmful to immunity.

Consumption of sugar is claimed to suppress immune cells. Quoting Web MD, a study shows, eating or drinking eight tablespoons of sugar (equivalent to one soft drink) can reduce the ability of white blood cells to kill germs.

3. Alcoholic drinks

There have been many studies showing the habit of drinking alcohol with the immune system. Alcoholic drinks are found to interfere with endurance.

Quoting Healthline, alcohol can make it difficult for the immune system to prepare and protect the body from harmful germs.

“Alcohol has a variety of adverse effects on the body, including on all immune cells, leading to an increased risk of serious infections,” says health expert Jennifer Edelman.

In the lungs, alcohol can damage immune cells that have the important task of clearing pathogens from the airway. While in the intestines, alcohol can trigger inflammation and destroy good bacteria that can maintain the immune system.

Avoid consuming three types of drinks that are believed to damage the immune system above to avoid infection.

  • In recent days, Russia has registered 6.8 thousand cases of infection with coronavirus. Daily growth rate not only fell below 7 thousand, but was the lowest since April 29.
  • Rosturizm has published a list of the constraints that now operate in when entering a foreign country. The list includes data for 121 countries. For example, in some countries for those arriving from abroad, provided quarantine for 14 days. Also required is a medical certificate showing a negative test for the coronavirus.
  • After the fresh outbreak of the pandemic in Europe in Russia, it is also possible to re-growth of morbidity, according to respondents RBC experts in the field of Virology. Among the major threats the population is tired of the quarantine measures.
  • Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Tatiana Golikova proposed to establish long-term monitoring of patients who recover from coronavirus infection COVID-19. The reason is that doctors are not yet fully studied the impact of the disease on the body.

If antibodies and vaccination work?

Zwei Unknown, there is in the defensive battle against the pandemic Virus and Sars-CoV-2: of The the Virus itself, not surprisingly. It’s only been a half or three quarters of a year in circulation, evolutionarily this is a blink of an eye. Whether it can withstand the heat or not, how quickly it adapts and what causes these tremendous efficiency in the spread – it breaks the heads. The other Unknown we are even. Why not to ruin it for the part of the Infected life or at least health, while others suspect that the Virus latched on to her has?

Joachim Müller-Jung

Editor of the features section, responsible for the area of “nature and science”.

The decisive factor here is the role of our immune system. Something more specific to self-defense does not know the nature. But we can be sure, if at some point, the immune cells are challenged by a vaccine out to the B-immune cells produced antibodies to fight an Arsenal of also acquired defensive weapons such as the T-cells? How sure can we be that this will work?

Pure optimism prevails. Almost mill-like the vaccination details are to be prayer is repeated: the end of the year at the earliest, maybe by the summer of next year, the first vaccines should be approved and distributed. Whether this succeeds, depends on how the immune system reacts to the new virus. Experience with the corona virus, there is so far only fragmentarily from animal experiments during the first Sars epidemic in 2003, and from some recent experiments in rodents and a few volunteers. So far it sounds something like this: The immune system responds as expected. Indeed, but that means nothing. To generate a sufficient, ongoing immune protection without side effects and without the immune system to derail – is far from trivial. Hope to make some publications, which have appeared in the past few days and weeks in high-ranking journals like “Science” and “Cell”. From the blood of Corona-Survivors, several groups of researchers have promising antibodies and immune cells isolated, proven in laboratory experiments as a “super potent” and “neutralizing”. Neutralizing antibodies are the B cells produced a Y-shaped molecules that attach themselves so effectively to the most sensitive parts of the virus surface, the pathogen can not penetrate into our bodies and the cells of the body, but goes down. Each of these antibodies could be generated as a “passive vaccine”, as an Immune-Drug and administered in order to bridge the time until a real vaccine.

Researchers at the Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla have a thousand different B-cells discovered, each of which is on a different section of the Virus directed. Every single one of these antibodies could, he reproduced identical in construction and are injected as a so-called monoclonal antibody (MAB), the virus propagation brakes. In fact, dozens of such mAks seem to be willing to be in the next few months against Sars-CoV-2 to patients and to volunteers for the prophylaxis tested, such as the American Immunologist Mary Marovich of the National Institutes of Health in the journal “Jama” writes. But if you can look back on experimental achievements in the fight against Ebola, RS virus, or the hospital of germs – nothing is guaranteed. Monoclonal antibodies are expensive to develop and manufacture, also this explains why companies push the pace. Whether it’s worth it at all, depends on the progress of vaccine development, other drugs and clinical Tests.

Model of an Immunoglobulin G antibody.

Not every antibody is the same, and each immune system reacts differently to the new pathogen, which is one of the Teachings of the first six months. The immune responses seem to be highly variable. In the case of positively Tested, showing no or weak symptoms, the immune system barely. In Work in “Nature” and “Nature Medicine”, it was shown that the generated by the B-cells, but long-lasting IgG antibodies are formed in many of the Infected with no or mild Covid-19-symptoms, unfortunately, often only in small numbers or after two to three months to be very thinned, in order to prevent infection. A “immune to ID” for Covid-19-Convalescent, such as the Federal Minister of health, Jens Spahn, and many other politicians have taken moves in the distance.

What relates to a possible long-term immunity, are instead, T-cells, and greater focus. Andreas Thiel of the Charite in Berlin and Angela Rasmussen of the Columbia University have found out that you can find in the blood of Infected T-cells to attack the targeted Sars-CoV-2. Even non-infected produce T-helper-cells, which are seemingly directed tailor-made to the Virus and, in turn, B-cells to produce antibodies, stimulate. Analyses of blood samples confirmed that. Apparently, the immune system of many, who were infected once with harmless Corona-the common cold virus has formed, through this cross-reaction, an immune memory, which could offer at least a partial protection against Sars-CoV-2. This is the reason why Covid-19 is usually mild? What are such phenomena as “residual immunity” are really worth in the fight against the pandemic, remains unclear. The next months will show it.

experts explain why obesity “helps” coronavirus

– Has long been known that overweight people have lowered immunity, says head of the Department of endocrinology of the medical faculty Russian national research medical University. N. And. Pirogov Tatiana Demidova. Research and practice show that in these patients increases the risk of atherosclerosis sharply increases the risk of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure. Increased risk of endocrinological, oncological diseases, joint diseases, psychological disorders.

Epidemic COVID has added another item to the list of high threats to people who are overweight. It turned out that when infected with coronavirus patients with obesity more often require hospitalization, fall into the ICU, on the ventilator (artificial lung ventilation). Alas, is growing and the risk of death.

– If the original messages from China on the most severe cases COVID it was mainly about the older people with severe chronic diseases, according to the latest data from Europe and USA the risk group includes people with obesity – says Tatiana Demidova.

FACTS AND FIGURES

In what diseases most often develop complications due to coronavirus

90% of patients admitted with severe COVID-19 US hospitals, were the following comorbidities:

– hypertension — 49.7%,and

– obesity or 48.3%,

– chronic lung disease — 34,6%,

– diabetes type 2 diabetes was 28.3%,

– cardiovascular disease — 27,8%.

Thus, obesity is second among the States in which CouId be severe.

CORONAVIRUS, INFLUENZA, AND HIV, “LIKE” ADIPOSE TISSUE

Visceral adipose tissue, that is, one that is in the abdomen, is, in fact, highly individual body, experts explain. This body affects the immune, endocrine system and metabolism in the body as a whole.

– People who are overweight fat cells are much larger. So, is synthesized in much more of various hormones and inflammatory cells. Among them, including interleukin-6, interleukin-1, tumor necrosis factor, and others, – says Tatiana Demidova. Often in the body, there is a creeping inflammation.

At the same time observed that many viral infections and especially COVID-19 amplify the effects cytokines and lead to the extension of the generalization of inflammation. “It was proved that adipose tissue serves as a reservoir for some viruses, such as influenza, HIV and cytomegalovirus. Also, according to the latest data, it can be activated and coronavirus,” adds Demidov.

INSULATION NEEDS TO BE LONGER?

Studies have shown one more feature of coronavirus. As it turned out, he is able to spread rapidly in adipose tissue surrounding internal organs – lungs, liver, kidneys, heart, etc. because Of this, developing severe damage to these vital organs and people with excess weight, excess amount of adipose tissue increases the risk of death from multiple organ failure.

There is evidence that such patients are also unable to stay longer carriers of the virus, require longer hospital stay and isolation, said Tatyana Demidova.

AFTER INFECTION — DIABETES

There is evidence and that not less than one-third of patients hospitalized with COVID-19 in China, European countries and the United States, the infection resulted in damage of the pancreas. This was confirmed by elevated enzymes amylase and lipase, and glucose levels in the blood plasma.

– This is a very disturbing circumstance. Since we talking about high risk of developing diabetes type 2 diabetes in people with the original obesity after recovery from infection, says Dr. Demidov.

It is not excluded that after the break the pace of the epidemic COVID, we will see a worldwide surge in the incidence of diabetes, experts say.

So now, when the opportunity walks, sports, seasonal ripe fruits and vegetables rich in fiber, doctors suggest the obese individuals to exert their maximum effort for getting rid of really dangerous extra pounds.

New Zealand epidemiologist called three mistakes of Sweden in the fight against COVID-19 :: Policy :: RBC

Scientific Advisor to the government of New Zealand Michael Baker called the Swedish methods of dealing with the coronavirus ineffective. To defeat COVID-19 in the country should have from the beginning to impose strict measures

The Swedish authorities made a mistake when he refused to impose strict restrictions for the epidemic COVID-19. In an interview with RBC said the scientific Advisor to the government of New Zealand, Professor Michael Baker. According to him, the Swedish approach to combating the virus was based on three incorrect assumptions. “The first hypothesis was that even in the context of the spread of the virus [и отсутствии масштабного локдауна] you can protect citizens at risk, but the Swedes did not succeed”, — he said. Earlier, the chief epidemiologist of the country Anders Tegnell admitted that the authorities failed to prevent the emergence of foci of disease in nursing homes that claimed the lives of older people. In addition, deaths from the virus in Sweden is higher than in neighboring Norway, Denmark and Finland.

According to the second hypothesis, which was proposed by the advisors of the Swedish authorities, the population can quickly get herd immunity, said Baker. “However, much of the progress here too has not happened,” he said. According to statistics, only in Stockholm COVID-19 had less than 10%, and for the development of “herd immunity” is necessary to overcome the threshold in 60% of cases throughout the country. “The third hypothesis was that the absence of quarantine measures to avoid the economic costs, but such hopes did not materialize,” said Baker. As follows from the forecasts of the European Commission, Sweden GDP at the end of 2020 will fall by 6.1%.

Baker said that personally acquainted with Swedish experts-epidemiologists and respects them as professionals. “At the beginning of the pandemic, no one could say for sure which way is right, and what is not, and the arguments of Swedish scientists had by some logic. However, it is recognized that Sweden has made a mistake,” he said, expressing hope that the Kingdom will adjust its strategy against the virus.

According to Baker, at the initial stage of a pandemic, some scientists in New Zealand have shown interest in Sweden’s experience, but in the end the local authorities decided to go the way of Asian countries that quickly adopted stringent measures to combat COVID-19. “This allowed us to eliminate most of the chains of transmission of the virus and also increase the amount of testing up to 5-10 thousand of tests per day with a population of 5 million people,” he said. New Zealand have been able to crush all pockets of the country and lifted all restrictions related to social distancing.

Sweden is one of the few who refused to tough isolation measures in response to the pandemic. Scientific Advisor to the government of the country Johan Giesecke claimed in a conversation with RBC that the Swedish health care system cope with the influx of contaminated and hard limits would not help in the long run. “Everything that makes a rigid quarantine is delaying the solution to the problem that stands before you. But this problem is still relevant in a couple of months,” he said in early may, expressing hope for the development in Swedes ‘ collective immunity for several months.

Later chief epidemiologist Andres Rignell acknowledged that the Swedes hardly will soon be able to develop a collective immunity to the disease. In early June, Tegnell said that the number of deaths from COVID-19 in Sweden have been too large and taken measures could be better. As noted by Tegnell, it is not clear what changes would make them more effective, as other countries have introduced different measures to stop the pandemic, and that it finally worked, it is difficult to say.

As at 15 June in Sweden was 52 383 cases of infection with coronavirus and 4891 deaths in New Zealand — 1504 and 22 (according to Johns Hopkins University).
