Model finds COVID-19 deaths among elderly may be due to genetic limit on cell division

Press/Media: Expert CommentPopular

Description

Your immune system’s ability to combat COVID-19, like any infection, largely depends on its ability to replicate the immune cells effective at destroying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the disease. These cloned immune cells cannot be infinitely created, and a key hypothesis of a new University of Washington study is that the body’s ability to create these cloned cells falls off significantly in old age.

    DescriptionAccording to a model created by UW research professor James Anderson, this genetically predetermined limit on your immune system may be the key to why covid-19 has such a devastating effect on the elderly. Anderson is the lead author of a paper published March 31 in The Lancet eBioMedicine detailing this modeled link between aging, covid-19 and mortality.

    DescriptionThis illustration represents the core theory in a new modeling study led by the University of Washington: The circles represent the immune system’s aging, in which its ability to make new immunity cells remains constant until a person (represented by the human figures) reaches middle-age or older and then falls off significantly. The central blue figure represents a virus or a challenge to the immune system. Credit: Michele Kellett and James Anderson/University of Washington

    DescriptionLa capacidad de su sistema inmunitario para combatir el COVID-19, como cualquier infección, depende en gran medida de su capacidad para replicar las células inmunitarias que son eficaces para destruir el virus SARS-CoV-2 que causa la enfermedad. Estas células inmunes clonadas no pueden crearse infinitamente, y una hipótesis clave de un nuevo estudio de la Universidad de Washington es que la capacidad del cuerpo para crear estas células clonadas disminuye significativamente en la vejez.
