- Said, HLA-DRB1*04:01 gene protects against the severity of corona
In many cases of corona, even after infection, symptoms are not visible in the patients. These patients are called asymptomatic. Scientists have given the reason why the symptoms are not visible in infected patients. Researchers from Newcastle University, UK, say that the reason for this is a gene named HLA-DRB1*04:01. This gene is found up to three times in patients who remain asymptomatic.
gene gives protection from corona
According to the research report, after getting infected, this special type of gene prevents the condition from deteriorating in patients. tries to keep them safe. To understand this, says research published in the HLA journal, scientists compared and examined patients without symptoms and more severe patients with corona.
Europeans likely to have genes
Researchers say, the connection of this gene is also with a particular place. Investigations have revealed that this gene is more likely to occur in people from northern and western Europe. This means, people in Europe will be mostly asymptomatic after being infected, but they remain at risk of spreading the disease to others.
According to researchers, one in five Europeans living in the UK have this gene.
Who needs more vaccine, will be able to find out
Dr. Carlos Icheveria, a scientist involved in the research, says the research results are very important because they explain why some people do not get sick even after being infected. It is clear from research that people can also be tested for genes and it can be known who needs more vaccine in future.
