How COVID-19 triggers immune response in brain

In a new study from the University of Huddersfield, researchers found how the induction of brain inflammation accounts for neurological damage in COVID19 patients and now.

They described how the spike protein used by the coronavirus to enter human cells can have a similar effect on the brain’s immune cells as it does with the rest of the body.

According to the team, whilst other research demonstrated the mechanism of why the virus was able to gain access into the brain through the nose, theirs was among the first to demonstrate how the coronavirus activated the brain’s own immune response.

The team says it may not be multiplying in the brain.

But when it gets into the brain, it can actually induce immune responses and this explains some of the trends people have reported when they have been infected such as continued brain fog and memory loss.

The team’s previous research discovered how the onset of Alzheimer’s disease can be slowed and some of its symptoms curbed by a natural compound that is found in pomegranate.
