Changes in immune cells lead to Covid-19

New York – Covid-19 patients have differing immune responses that lead to disease outcomes ranging from asymptomatic SARS-CoV-2 infection to death. Jihoon Lee, a graduate student at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, said: “We analysed thousands of biological markers linked to metabolic pathways that underlie the immune system and found some clues as to what immune-metabolic changes may be pivotal in severe disease. Our hope is that these observations of immune function will help others piece together the body’s response to Covid-19.” The analysis included 1,387 genes involved in metabolic pathways and 1,050 plasma metabolites.
