A study reveals the secret of the increase in deaths of South Asians from Corona

Although otherwise healthy, young people die of COVID-19 or are admitted to hospitals on rare occasions, indicating an invisible risk that researchers are increasingly identifying as genetic predisposition through a specific gene.

“Like any infectious disease, not everyone faces corona in the same way,” French immunologist Siamak Bahram told AFP.

The vast majority of deaths from Covid are elderly people. Among the younger people; Hospitalizations and deaths are mainly due to people at clear risk, who have diabetes or other diseases; But the disparity goes further than that.

genetic predisposition

“Let’s take for example people of the same age, gender and health: if they are infected with a virus, their response may be very different. So very early in the pandemic, several teams launched research on genetic predisposition,” Bahram explained.

Jane “Adam 9”

Bahram is a member of one such team, and under his leadership, researchers have identified a network of genes associated with the development of severe forms of the disease in young and healthy patients. In a study published this fall, they concluded a possible role for a gene called Adam 9; But this is one trend among many others; Because nearly two years into the epidemic, science is doubling down on genetic explanations for the severe form of Covid.

Study details

“Research has gathered, at an astonishing speed, a huge amount of information about the role of genetic factors in Covid-19,” said a study that summarized the main work on the topic, published in the journal “i-Bio-Medicine” in October.

The main business is divided into two parts; The first part compares the genomes of thousands of people, grouped into several categories: people with severe disease, people with mild disease and healthy people.

By interrupting the information at random, more frequent items were shown in those with severe forms of the disease. At the end of 2020, researchers revealed the presence of a specific piece of DNA, on a region of chromosome 3, in the most severe patients.

These results were fundamental; It may explain why COVID-19 is more fatal among South Asians; Where this part of the DNA is found extensively.

Gene “TLR7”

One of the most important results in this topic has been reached; This summer, researchers demonstrated the role of the TLR7 gene, whose mutations affect the immune response in the early stages of infection with the virus.

The French geneticist, Laurent Appel, who participated in the study, explained that the TLR7 mutation prevents the body from responding well to certain proteins called interferon, which are crucial to the immune response; This calls for treatment based on interferon.
