Long covid patients show autoimmune disease

Long-Covid patients show signs of an autoimmune disease in the blood. Canadian scientists have now proven this. Apparently, antibodies are formed that are directed against the patient’s own tissue.

Little is still known about Long Covid. But now there’s a new study showing that long-Covid patients are showing signs of an autoimmune disease. This was reported by Manali Mukherjee from McMaster University (Ontario) and Chris Carlsten (University of British Columbia/Vancouver) in the newly published issue of the European Respiratory Journal.

“Although Long Covid is now also recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a clinical picture, we still know little about its causes and how we can possibly help patients,” said Mukherjee on the occasion of the publication of the research results.
