Right now 1 in 30 Londoners are infective for COVID19 and the NHS here is in crisis. What do we know about how the body fights this disease? Why do some people end up in hospital? How can a blood saturation monitor help you? What do we know about antibodies?
How anti Covid spike protein antibodies are key to understanding the vaccine, monoclonal antibodies and also why some people with impaired immune systems such blood cancer don’t make antibodies and so tend to have more severe illness. I also refer to my personal experience of failing a vaccine trial and needing to start soon on IVIG as well as enrolling in a monoclonal antibody covid19 prevention trial.
This video and podcast is an introduction to a series of articles over on http://bloodcanceruncensored.com
